Raffles Place’s Leading Preschool, Tots & Teddies, Wins the 2021 ThreeBestRated Award

Tots & Teddies, one of the top-rated pre-schools in Raffles Place, has been bestowed with the 2021 ThreeBestRated® award. Its founder, Oliver Houchin, is excited to receive the award. He says, “We appreciate the recognition as it means we can share our philosophy with more parents who may be looking for quality care for their little ones.”
The Tots & teddies pre-school had to undergo a rigorous 50-point inspection conducted by the ThreeBestRated expert team to receive this honour. The 50-point inspection involves checking various aspects of the pre-school, which includes ratings, reputation, history, complaints, satisfaction, trust and price to the general excellence.
How it all started?
Oliver Houchin didn’t even have the slightest idea of starting a pre-school until he and his wife faced difficulty in finding the best quality pre-school in Singapore for their daughter. They couldn’t find a pre-school that offers quality care with a well-balanced P1-ready curriculum. By seeing that, Oliver decided to quit his job and start a pre-school to provide the best quality infant care. Oliver says, “In Singapore, most pre-schools are a business that happens to be a pre-school. We are a pre-school first and foremost. We care about the details that others don’t.”
What is unique?
Tots & Teddies have a professional in-house chef to prepare quality food for the infants. The food they provide is always freshly prepared, and the menu is prepared by a pediatric nutritionist. They also offer a single all-inclusive fee, which means they render several high-quality extracurricular activities such as STEM, speech and drama, Chinese wushu, sports and all excursions without any extra fees. Oliver says, “To the best of my knowledge, we are the only pre-school offering this structure to ensure that children are provided with broad exposure every day.”
The pre-school consistently strives to improve their standards. Oliver says, “We are particularly proud of the standard we have set when it comes to food and our immersive bilingual curriculum.” He says it is highly rewarding to see children every time they graduate from Tots & Teddies. Oliver says, “Infants join us when they are just a few months old and leave to transition into Primary school at seven years old. During that time, they spend more time with us than they do at home. Our responsibility during this period is so important – from safety and hygiene through to imparting good values. We are proud every time a child ‘graduates’ from our pre-school and have a strong foundation to start primary school.”
Their CBD location allows working parents to spend more time with their children and increases partnership with the school. They are currently expanding the school to another CBD location to provide more parents with a quality infant and pre-school care. Visit their website to know more about their services.
