In 2020, The Methodist Church in Singapore set up Methodist Preschool Services Pte Ltd (MPSPL) to centralise the management of Methodist preschools. On 26 June 2023, Ang Mo Kio Methodist Preschool joined the MPSPL group as the seventh centre at the start of the new school term. The centre provides 4-hour and 6-hour preschool programmes and has been operating within the premise of Ang Mo Kio Methodist Church since 1982.

The preschool network began with five centres—namely Bedok, Faith, Foochow, Sengkang and Toa Payoh Methodist Preschools. Serangoon Garden joined the fold in January 2023.

Roland Tan, Executive Director of MPSPL, said, “We welcome Ang Mo Kio Methodist Preschool as the seventh centre in our MPSPL family. We thank God for leading and guiding us in our journey to develop Methodist preschools into centres of excellence to provide holistic and high- quality education anchored on Christian values in a nurturing environment to enable all children to maximise their potential, with future-ready mindsets. The unification of Methodist preschools as one entity with a shared vision, mission, core values, curriculum and brand identity has provided leverage through centralised resource utilisation, optimisation and management in several areas like curriculum development, centre operation, educators’ training, HR development and marketing.”

Mrs Priscilla Low, Principal of Ang Mo Kio Methodist Preschool, shared, “My team and I are excited to be part of the Methodist Preschool family! We believe that our children will enjoy and benefit from the new curriculum content and innovative education technologies that will be introduced to enhance our programme offering. For a start, the Methodist Preschool’s Signature Space Buds Programme will be introduced to our K2 cohort in 2023. Children and parents alike are very much looking forward to that!”

In the two years since it was established, MPSPL has collaborated with renowned STEM-based education content providers to implement several first-in-Singapore programmes at its centres, including its Signature Space Buds Programme, LEGO’s Build the Change programme and Microsoft’s Minecraft Education. In 2023, MPSPL also collaborated with the Methodist School of Music to pilot a holistic faith-based music programme called the Methodist Music Odyssey (MMO) which seeks to address cognitive, physical, socio-emotional, moral, and spiritual development whilst growing the child’s musical aptitude and ability. MMO is slated to roll out at all seven MPSPL-managed preschools at both the K1 and K2 levels in 2024. MPSPL has also integrated coding and AI reading technology companions into its curriculum to make learning fun and effective while equipping children with basic digital literacy skills necessary in the increasingly technology-dependent 21st century.
