About Us

At The Living Lab, we aim to empower little minds to observe, think and question. We teach little ones about animals and plants through interactions with living things and real animals in every class. Through our lessons, our students gain early interest and literacy in biology and ecology. This would in turn give them a head start in science when they enter Primary school. Our curriculum is developed by our co-founder who holds a degree in Biology from the prestigious Ivy League - The University of Pennsylvania

Our Curriculum

The ability to observe, think and question are increasingly important in our ever changing world as it helps to develop patience, and to look at things from a different perspective, thus encouraging them to think out of the box and improve their problem solving skills.

Our teachers are trained in early childhood pedagogy and share our believe that learning should be fun! We also believe that children learn best through play! We believe that once a child is interested in something, they will be intrinsically motivated to excel in that area. This means that they will be motivated to read, learn and question things that interests them out of their own will (i.e. without your nagging).

We utilise a hands on approach together with real plants and animal interactions to introduce, intrigue and amaze young minds, pique their curiosity and to cultivate an interest and love for the living sciences so that they will be intrinsically motivated to excel in that area.

An interest in living sciences is also important in nurturing the next generation of caretakers for our planet.

Unique Animal interaction syllabus

Numerous research has shown that frequent animal interactions with young children help foster the social, cognitive, emotional and physical development of a child. We believe children learn best when they are having fun! Our unique experiential animal interaction syllabus enables our students to better understand and absorb what they learnt in class.

A head start in Science


Science has been a largely neglected area in early childhood education due to the fact that it is only taught in Singapore schools from the age of 9 (Primary 3). Parents often feel that it is not a subject that is as important as English, Math and Chinese as these are the main subjects our children learn when they first enter Primary school.


However, science is such an interesting and important aspect of life that we feel it should be introduced at an early age when children are the most curious about our surroundings and what the world has to offer. Children absorb best and learn the most when they are interested in something.

Through our lessons, they would gain early literacy in biology and ecology which gives them a head start in science when they enter Primary school. Once they develop a strong interest in living science, they would be intrinsically motivated to excel in that area.

Brain development


The first few years of a child's life are when the brain grows and develops the most.  A child's brain would have grown to 80% of their adult size by the age of 3 and 90% of their brain would have developed by the age of 6. Therefore, a child's experiences in these early years affect how their brain develops. 

At the living lab, our classes are carefully designed to facilitate your child's brain development at different stages in their lives. For the younger ones ( 12months - 2.5 years ), our lesson would focus more on developing language, social and motor skills. For the older ones ( 3 - 6 years ) our focus would be developing observational skills, empathy, critical thinking skills, social skills, literacy and knowledge.
