Vision & Mission

Provide quality education and care for children in a safe environment and prepare them with skills to be responsible, respectful, competent and independent lifelong learners.

Serve as a foundation for children in their early learning years and work with families and communities to support children’s holistic development and instil passion for learning.

Our Core Values

At Orange Tree, in line with our mission to build an authentic partnership with families and the community, we inculcate a CARING attitude in our students.

We believe that a caring attitude is pivotal in driving us to achieve lifelong success. Caring serves as the basis for all our positive interactions and relations with others.

Creativity

Encouraging Divergent Thinking. Children are spontaneous and free flowing in their thoughts. We encourage divergent thinking to foster creativity as children learn to make new connections and explore a variety of possible solutions, in their effort to find one that works.

Activeness

Raising Active Learners. Children need plenty of experiences using their whole body and all five senses to make important learning discoveries. Our holistic and multi-sensory learning activities are age-appropriate and reflect the children's interests, needs and skills.

Resilience

Enabling Adaptive Responses. Our child-centric and enabling environment lays the foundation of resilience. Our children develop the ability to adapt well to changes, through supportive relationships, adaptive skill-building, and positive experiences.

Inquisitiveness

Fuelling Curiosity. Children are born with limitless curiosity. We encourage our children to constantly ask questions to understand the world around them and to equip them with the "soft skills" to set them up for a successful future.

Nurture

Promoting healthy growth and development. At Orange Tree, our teachers and caregivers are fully present in their interactions with children. We are sensitive to their needs and we endeavour to provide a safe, comfortable and conducive environment to promote the healthy development of self-esteem.

Graciousness

Reinforcing the qualities of kindness, humility and respect. Graciousness speaks volume about us. We build positive interactions through cultivating a gracious heart in our students. We teach our children to think and react towards others in a caring way and to think through how our choices affect those around us.
