ELFA is the most awarded Singapore Preschool brand in China. Amidst the lush greenery of a quaint and idyllic private estate, ELFA Chinese Preschool @ Pandan Valley offers quality and exclusive childcare services to children living in Clementi, Dover, Holland Village and Bukit Timah. ELFA is here to nurture your child’s love for the Chinese language. Our dedicated team of experienced and passionate educators provides childcare services to children aged 18 months to 6 years old.

ELFA is steeped in the Chinese language and culture while helping to shape your child’s morals and values. The emphasis of ELFA’s unique bilingual story-based approach is your child’s Chinese language acquisition. What sets ELFA apart is the integrated thematic learning through Chinese festivals such as Chinese New Year, Dragon Boat Festival and Mid-Autumn Festival, on top of the usual festivals celebrated in Singapore. Designed by a panel of advisors from China and Singapore, the integrated thematic approach is in line with the guidelines by Ministry of Education, Singapore. Our learning environment complements the curriculum and is purposefully planned to boost early language exposure and develop your child’s interest in Mandarin.

Our children are also exposed to creative Chinese-inspired art forms such as calligraphy, Chinese opera mask painting and traditional paper cutting craft. These activities sharpen fine motor skills, strengthen attention span, and enhance the sense of aesthetics in young ones. Coupled with this infused-learning, children are also exposed to other cultural activities like Chinese creative writing, lion dance and tea appreciation.

On the campus of ELFA Chinese Preschool @ Pandan Valley, there is a large private outdoor area. Within the outdoor space resides a playground structure where your child will learn to build gross motor, balancing and coordination as well as problem-solving skills. Also in the outdoors is a spice garden that is lovingly and tenderly cared for by our preschoolers. Through hands-on gardening, your child will develop a sense of responsibility and learn to care for the environment. Within the centre are spacious classrooms, a creative arts studio and a dramatic play corner.

With numerous channels to introduce your child to Chinese, look nowhere else but at ELFA Chinese Preschool, where your child will forge fond and lasting childhood memories.

Parent Testimonials

Thank you for the ZOOM sessions, especially as I think it’s difficult for two-year-olds to sit throughout the lesson on ZOOM.

Dear Teachers,

We would like to express our greatest gratitude for caring for our children. Under your angel wings, they have matured from tyrant toddlers into sensible preschoolers. We have also witnessed how you have transformed their love for the Chinese language when they initiate using the language in their daily activities. Your positive impact on our children will stay with them beyond preschool years, and we are grateful they are receiving the proper guidance under your care. Their smiles are a testament to your hard work.

We sincerely wish you a Happy Teachers’ Day!

Would like to specially thank Zhang Lao Shi for her engaging lessons! Gwen really looks forward to her lessons every day. It’s definitely not easy to do these lessons but she has been doing so well and the children really look forward to her lessons.


(Translation: Thanks to Zhang Laoshi for the lessons. Gwen eagerly looks forward to the lesson every day. During this period of time, mommy has to teach so sometimes I cannot accompany Gwen for the lessons. Hopefully in the next few weeks, I can spend more time to attend the lessons with her. Thanks to Zhang laoshi for the hard work! You have prepared so well. We are very appreciative of it!)

We are very appreciative to the school for going way and beyond to assimilate Rongrong into the preschool from day 1. Rongrong’s Chinese linguistic abilities have improved significantly, no doubt from Liu Laoshi’s zeal and boundless energy to teaching. Our thanks also extend to the new teacher, Lu Laoshi, for showering Rongrong with much care and guidance.

We fell in love with ELFA from the first day we visited the preschool. I love the fact that children are exposed to the Chinese language and culture from a young age. I was very impressed that the children are confident with the Chinese language as they spoke with a lot of confidence during conversations. The Teachers are also dedicated in ensuring that no child is left behind w their learning. Thank you ELFA for you’re worth our trust.

Dear Ms Tracy

Thanks very much for your efforts.

We appreciate your concerns and we hope the boys will pay attention and benefit from the online lessons as well. It is good to have some form of scheduling for them as it does help with discipline.

I look forward to the new week of lessons ahead. Thanks again very much for all your efforts and the teachers!

I would like to thank Zhang Laoshi for caring for my son Sage. She is very patient and kind and encourages him to learn and grow, even more than the usual curriculum. Although he hardly speaks Chinese at home, he seems to speak it readily in school, and that can be attributed to his close bond with his Laoshi.
