Holland International School is a safe and rich learning environment, with personalised education in a welcoming boutique school setting, where children can flourish to become the best version of themselves. Excellent Dutch and English preschool and primary education is provided within the framework of IPC (International Primary Curriculum). As one of the oldest international schools in Singapore, our unique learning philosophy has proven that our students enjoy learning and are empowered to become happy learners, academically strong and confident for the future.
Our unique learning philosophy explained. We put the interest of the child at the core of everything we do, our education is personalised and tailored to individual needs, the language programmes are deducted on differentiated levels, we are stimulative to help children achieve their best. We empower children to build confidence by focussing on the process of learning, they learn at their own pace and by being allowed to make mistakes. We encourage them to explore and discover autonomy, give them a voice or the space to find an answer or solution independently and they get ownership over their learning goals. All critical skills to succeed in modern global life. And last but not least, we truly believe that school should be a happy place. At Holland International School we place great emphasis on working together in a playful, yet structured and purposeful manner.
Bilingual preschool: for children from 18 months to 4 years old
Primary school: for children from 4 years to 12 years old
Within the English Stream, the language of instruction is English for both the English National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The Dutch Stream offers a mirrored learning experience, with the Dutch National Curriculum and IPC delivered in Dutch. As part of the daily curriculum, children also have access to either Dutch or English language lessons.
Co-Curricular activities (CCAs) and Extracurricular activities (ECAs) are an important part of student life. These after-school activities provide opportunities for students to participate in team-based sports, discover new passions, develop (social) skills, play together and, most importantly, have fun! Holland International School offers an extensive range of activities from sports programmes, to performing arts, coding, cooking, MMA, nature exploring and world languages.
