The Truth, Beauty and Goodness Curriculum
Little Olive Tree
Childcare Centres that tell the story of God's truth, beauty and goodness.
Little Olive Tree Preschool (Woodlands) is a preschool that tells the story of God’s truth, beauty and goodness. We hope that every child that comes through our doors will be like olive trees flourishing in the house of God, trusting always in His unfailing love.
Our role at Little Olive Tree Preschool (by PPS) is to be worthy partners to teach and love the children as our own. Doing anything lesser is a disservice to our children who are precious in the eyes of God.

The school term is still in session until the end of November 2022. The school and its learning environment will be undergoing renovation and refurbishment in December 2022. Photographs and more details will be released then.
In the meantime, you may peruse the gallery of how learning environments at other Presbyterian Preschool Services' childcare centres are like.
Little Olive Tree Preschools, by PPS, will adopt the Truth, Beauty and Goodness Programme Framework. This means classrooms and learning areas are set up to encourage learning, and to make children's thinking visible.
Practically, it means employing a muted and nature-inspired colour palette so that children's attention will be drawn to the learning material and their work. Little Olive Preschools will adopt the the look-and-feel in the classrooms and learning environments to that end.

Truth, Beauty and Goodness Curriculum
What is the chief goal of education? What do we want our children to learn from the hours they spend in school? What kind of values and skills do we want to nurture in our children?
In a world where truth is distorted, beauty is corrupted and goodness disregarded, we believe a strong foundation in these values will guide our children to see, understand and act correctly.
Therefore, the Truth, Beauty and Goodness (TBG) Curriculum Framework.
Since 2021, Presbyterian Preschool Services has transformed the curriculum we run. Beyond imparting knowledge and skills, we want to give our children an anchor and a structure to pursue knowledge on their own, to know the value and nature of things and to appreciate the value of knowledge for its own sake.
Here's how we do it: through the 5 Areas of Learning, we hope to provide a rigorous learning experience. However, the focus is not just on accumulation of knowledge or primary school preparation. Instead, we want to instil in children values such as grit, grace, grease, gratitude and generativeness. We believe that these values will serve them the rest of their lives.
