Profile Description


Canvas World aims to 

  • provide high quality education through fun, creative and meaningful activities. We believe when the children’s emotions are stable, they learn best.
  • allow children to learn through discovery (where answers are not provided but questions are given that leads children to discover their learning on their own). This allows for children to feel confident with their own abilities as well as discover their strengths, interest and talents.  
  • harness children’s imagination and creativity through various sensory-motor and hands-on activities (Art & Craft, Builders & Engineers, Speech & Drama, Cooking, Gardening and Science). This will allow children to adapt easily in changes in environment (an ever so needed skill in this rapidly changing time of ours).

Besides that, Canvas World places high emphasis on: 

  • Love for reading and writing.

We have an extensive collection of books in 3 languages (English, Bm, Mandarin) which we provide in our library. We include unique story-telling and library time in children’s schedules to create the interest in reading. Along with that, we provide one-to-one reading sessions and specially designed guided reading that takes placed on a daily basis.


  • Children’s safety.

We have taken extensive measure to ensure that our environment is as safe as it could be from training all our teachers in First Aid Courses as well as physically preparing a safe environment (where bookshelves are secured to the walls and table edges are covered).


  • One-to-one Guidance

We keep a 1:5 / 1:12 teacher and student ratio (depending on age group) to allow for best guidance and attention to each child’s learning. Our small group ratio ensures that each child gets the best time and attention from the teachers.


Our Math program is designed to 

  • create a solid foundation of mathematical concepts by moving children through the stages of concrete understanding (‘doing math’ – hands-on materials and manipulative) to abstract understanding (mental math).
  • We include finger counting and 10 frames method to smoothen children’s transition into more complex math concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


We Aim to achieve these goals through our carefully designed kindergarten programs known as:

I am glad that I met Teacher Ila and enrolled my 2 kids to Canvas World in last October. I can see my children are benefiting from the programmes in just few months. Writing has become a lot easier and less stressful for them. They are more open to accept comments and challenges, and able to express their thoughts and feelings in sentences. I'm happy to notice the improvement in my children. Thanks to Teacher Ila and Canvas World!

I am thankful and blessed to have teacher Melissa in our lives. Teacher Melissa started teaching my boy a few months back. I can see a lot of improvement on his understanding of sound on phonics and most importantly, he has started recognizing words and begin to read. Her teaching method is fun and creative, giving a lot of room for kids to think. I've observed it myself and I can see it is crazily fun. I can say it is not boring or stressful during the class. Melissa teaches by "explore + learn" and it makes my boy always excited for the next class. Thank you Melissa!!
