About MerlionKids

Merlion APAC Group has preschools in Singapore and China. It recently launches the online education portal for both full-time diploma courses in early childhood development education and short courses in inclusive education. And it currently is raising fund to set up a physical training school and therapy centre for special needs children.

It offers franchise opportunities to set up international preschools with its bilingual neuroscience-based thematic curriculum (English and Chinese), structured and well planned programmes. It has a strong international experienced academic team who constantly does research to improve curriculum and pedagogies. It established its first franchise in Sri Lanka in 2017 and another two preschools in China in 2020.

The Chairman of Merlion APAC Group was interviewed in China Central Television (CCTV) "Influence Of Dialogue" in 2015 and also was invited to Shanghai Normal University Tianhua College in 2019 to share about how MerlionKids pedagogies and programmes use neuroscience-based curriculum and STEM activities to help brain development in stages. As an educator themself, he felt that it was important to inculcate in children good learning attitudes and habitual thinking, to equip them with strong literacy and reading skill for self-expression of own emotions and communicating of their desires, self-regulation of emotion to be better interacting with other children and self-discovery to discover more about themselves, what they like and their interests. The multiple intelligence integrated of science, numeracy and literacy approach increased a child's curiosities to wanting to learn new knowledge and skills in his lifelong journey. Using this unique Singapore learning principle to guide a child to explore and discover the world happily lay a good foundation for his future.

As a chartered accountant by profession, he hoped this revolutionary curriculum developed a child for better future and, in the way, changed the world for better. He believed there would be great demand for good quality preschools as China changed the one-child policy to two-child policy.
