The underlying philosophy of our programme embraces a combination of the use of Dewey’s explanation of true education, whereby a child is stimulated to his/her full potential by the demands of the social situations in which a child finds himself or herself. The child learns to act as part of a larger group, and he/she learns by looking/making sense of others’ responses to his/her actions. Thus, project-based learning coupled with problem-based learning are key methods of our teaching philosophy.
She has also been tutoring primary school children for more than 15 years. She has decided to join Time Out Smarties as it is her passion to teach young children in a informal environment. As a mother, she is fully aware of the importance of holistic development for a child. Together with a team of educators and teachers, they designed the curriculum which covers general knowledge and current affairs. Other than academic excellence, she hopes to inculcate strong moral values and passion to learn in the children.
She holds a Bachelor Degree in Arts and Social Science from National University of Singapore. Her experiences include working in a multinational company and also in various parts of the world.
She believes that every child does not need to be the best but she hopes to bring out the best in him/her.

What parents say about us
Time Out Smarties’ curriculum which covers general knowledge and current affairs is really beneficial to our family. My child has been coming home to read up on the topics taught by the teachers in the centre. He has even engaged us in conversations like Lunar eclipse and Blood moon. We are pleasantly surprised by his craft work done in the centre. The daily topics taught in the centre has become interesting dinner conversation topics too.
