The environment in Rosebrook Developmental Centre is ideal for children to learn and thrive. The use of the Heartworks in Motion© approach helps children develop holistically, allowing for opportunities to develop through creative, sensorial and experiential learning. The centre includes children with special needs with typical developing children and there are multiple advantages in this approach. This allows for children with special needs to have positive role models in different aspects, and typically developing children get to embrace differences and develop empathy from a young age. Having horses in the premises provides opportunities for children to care for the animals.

Monica advocates for a gentle yet empowering approach to work with the children, respecting their individual differences, giving everyone an opportunity to develop holistically.

Imagine arriving at your daughter’s school as you drive through gates framed by white picket fences which lead to a lush oasis of trees and greenery. Horses galloping in the paddock and live characters from the book of the week greet you and the children. It is hard to fathom that such spaciousness and tranquility is just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Singapore.

Fortunately, we don't need to imagine this because it is the reality that our children experience everyday at Rosebrook. Through their literacy- based curriculum, our daughter has developed a love for books, writing, counting, reading (us reading to her) and a general curiosity for discovering and learning new things. She now enjoys moving and using her body to express things to us also. Not to mention the adventure of grooming and playing with Daniel and Hans (the ponies).

A special kudos to the quality of staff who work there. Not only do they know their stuff, but they clearly love working with children. They go beyond their duty to send out daily pictorial reports to parents and they also text us with videos on special things they wish to highlight.

It is simply a joy to watch Maia grow and learn in such a caring, rich and exciting environment.
