ELFA @ Hougang is conveniently located within walking distance from Kovan MRT station, connected via a sheltered walkway.
Our dedicated team of experienced and passionate educators provides childcare services to children aged 18 months to 6 years old, adopting a Chinese-English Bilingual Curriculum approach with a strong emphasis on Chinese language acquisition.
The preschool has spacious classrooms and a creative arts studio. Our environment is purposefully planned to provide early exposure and develop interest in Chinese. Adopting an integrated thematic approach in line with guidelines by the Ministry of Education, Singapore, ELFA is steeped in Chinese culture, and our children learn various Chinese creative art forms such as calligraphy, Chinese opera mask painting and traditional paper cutting craft. These activities sharpen fine motor skills, strengthen attention span and enhances the sense of aesthetics in the young ones. Apart from arts, children are exposed to cultural activities like Chinese creative writing, lion dance and tea appreciation. Finally, what sets ELFA apart is also in the festivals that we celebrate – on top of the usual festivals celebrated in Singapore, ELFA focuses on Chinese festivals such as Chinese New Year, Dumpling Festival and Mid-Autumn Festival.
With numerous channels to introduce children to Chinese, ELFA preschoolers are ready for Singapore primary school Chinese syllabus by the time they graduate Kindergarten 2.
