Nurturing the innovators of tomorrow

Started in 2014, First Steps Preschool is a leading Innovation-Focused school. It was conceptualized on the belief that children must be encouraged to discover new knowledge, rather than memorize information from books and school. Strongly influenced by the philosophy of world-renowned child therapist and infant specialist, Magda Gerber from RIE™ USA and the insightful research of Hungarian paediatrician Dr Emmi Pikler from Pikler-Lóczy, we prepare children to face future challenges and seize opportunities brought about by globalisation, modernisation and technological advancements.
