LIFE @ MK: Supporting Children's Transition from Preschool to Primary School
Briefing Slides (26 Aug 2020)
MOE Kindergarten @ Riverside
All MKs offer the same curriculum and programmes.
Each MK customises learning activities, teaching resources and approaches, and classroom spaces based on their children’s needs.
Every space a learning space
Our aim is to create time and space for
- children to interact and form positive relationships with their peers and teachers
- joyful, self-motivated learning
Promoting creativity, problem-solving and self-directed learning
|Weeks of Wonder (WoW) Project: throughout the term, we develop the children’s capacity to learn independently by building their sense of curiosity, imagination, experimentation and discovery.|
|“Kampung Riverside”, both indoors and outdoors, is a once a week experience that brings children out of their individual classrooms to learn how to
problem solve and become more independent
We hold special K2 Celebrations to mark the completion of your child’s pre-school years. Our celebrations reflect our belief in a holistic view of pre-school children’s development. Instead of dressing in graduation gown and mortar board which places undue emphasis on the academic aspects of development, we place your child at the heart of the celebrations where he or she will be involved in planning and executing the celebrations, showing his or her capabilities and accomplishments.
What parents are saying
I’m so glad that I made the right choice in sending them to MK as I like the holistic approach in education and curriculum is very well paced. They were able to learn in a stress free conducive environment.
Their 2 years in MK is nothing short of amazing and wonderful memories. Most importantly, the teachers were very helpful and supportive in helping them to learn. I had absolute confidence and strong faith in their capabilities with their years of experience in teaching.

Abhinaya is doing great in Primary 2. All thanks to MK@Riverside. Her foundation was set perfectly by MK that she had no trouble settling in when she was in P1. We are always thankful and grateful to all the staff at MK for their care and guidance in handling each and every child with a personal touch. The management was always been approachable for any admin matters. Special thanks to Ms. Serena who had been a lovely and friendly principal who wears a positive smile every time we see her.
- Parent of Abhinaya (K2 Class of 2017) and Aryan (K1 Class of 2019)
Why I chose MK is that the curriculum encourages independent as well as team based learning experiences. Classrooms are bright and fun with a variety of toys for the children to play and explore. Zafeera is successful in her new school because of the foundation built through her education at MK. Special mention and kudos to Ms Shafinas, Ms Riyah and Aasiriyai Anu who knew her strength and gave her space and time to grow into a confident and independent girl. They have been fantastic in nurturing Zafeera and her peers and there seems to be a right balance in playing, exploring and studying.

As a parent of 2 boys, 7 and 4, who has graduated from and is currently attending MK@Riverside respectively, I would like to commend on the excellent work that Ms Serena Park and her team have put in since Day 1 when the school was set up. Because I was able to view the quality of work straddling 3 years, I could testify that Serena and her team have been consistently good in their efforts to interact with the kids and parents effectively.
- Parent of Kieran Ang (K2 Class of 2017) and Tristan Ang (K1 Class of 2019)
My compliments for the efforts from the school principal, teachers (Ms Serena, Ms Ezza, Ms Feline, Ms Geetha, Ms Florence, Ms Petrina, 周老师， 呂老师) and staff for creating a nurturing environment for my children the past 2 years at MOE Kindergarten @ Riverside. Makayla and Adela are adapting well in Primary school, mingling well with new classmates/schoolmates other than studies. They continue to pursue interest in reading, learning and exploration which I would like to credit to MOE Kindergarten's meaningful activities and lessons plans which includes weekly story reviews, home activity kit, WOW projects, extended learning centre. A highly recommended preschool which nurture children holistically, focus not only on academic but also the social and emotional aspect by a team of dedicated professionals.

Mk@Riverside also allows many opportunities for parent engagement. I recall working together with another parent for a story telling session which I thoroughly enjoyed. There are activities that foster appreciation for parents & provide us with insights into what the children do in school. Talks for parents are also conducted to give parents tips on how to manage behaviour, nutrition as well as curriculum so that we have an understanding of what & how children learn.
Teaching is heartwork! We are blessed to have the best educators for Taaresh. Our sincere & heartfelt thanks go out to Ms. Serena, Ms. Ai Hoon, Ms. Geetha, Ms. Dhana just to mention a few but also to the team at MK@Riverside for the effort & heart in all they do for the children.

Jovan learnt a lot in MOE Kindergarten @ Riverside. Over the two years in MK, he grew in confidence in expressing himself and sharing of his ideas in front of the class. He would come back home and share with us what he learnt after every field trip. This has increased his confidence in Show and Tell this year when he is in Primary 1 at Riverside Primary School.
He has greatly benefitted during his time in MK, especially learning how to regulate his emotions and behaviour. Regular conversations with the MK teachers also helped us to understand how to support him better at home.
We are really thankful to MK.

My first precious Zafeera Manha graduated from MOE Kindergarten@Riverside last year 2018. MK@Riverside had been and is providing a safe and comfortable environment for my children to learn and develop themselves. My younger one is currently flourishing at MK@Riverside also in K1. Why I chose MK is that the curriculum encourages independent as well as team based learning experiences. Classrooms are bright and fun with a variety of toys for the children to play and explore.

Thank you for the knowledge and guidance given throughout my kids experience for 2 years, my son M. Adam did not go to any preschool before but it is amazing to see he adapts well in kindergarten, he felt comfort and enjoyed playing while learning so it doesn't makes it hard for me to send him to school.
