Every Child a Joyful Learner

Little Shepherds’ Schoolhouse is associated with the Catholic Church which has been extensively involved in the provision of education in Singapore. Since the 19th century, the Catholic education system has grown to be the second biggest sector after government schools in Singapore. 


The Catholic Preschool Education (Singapore) Ltd (CPES) was formed in 2019 in an effort to consolidate all parish preschools under one organisation. The consolidation provides central administration, support and resources for all the Little Shepherd Schoolhouses across the island. Like a shepherd who cares for, protects, guides and leads the young, we create a supportive and caring environment that allows your child to grow in virtues, construct knowledge and develop relevant skills to connect with the world. 

Our Approach: Educating Through Virtues

By instilling our core virtues and developing character formation, we believe our children can be inspired to embrace the love of learning and adopt positive changes for a holistic development. Our children can then extend responsibility beyond self and be in harmony with the community and the environment.

Our Vision

Every Child a Joyful Learner

Our Mission

To inspire love for learning and grow in virtues in harmony with self, the environment and society



To appreciate the efforts made by others



To show positive regard for all creation, accepting them as they are



To act with prudence, temperance, fortitude and justice



To express love and concern for family, community and the world



To discern and be thoughtful of the feelings of others

We believe that children are joyful  and responsible learners, active community members and positive contributors to society.

The curriculum at Little Shepherds’ Schoolhouse is thoughtfully designed to create inspirational learning experiences that will cultivate GRACE in children. 

Educating children is an ongoing process that is vital to to a child’s lifelong journey. 

As educators, we have the privilege to be a part of this journey and guide children to extend the skills they learn in the classrooms to the wider community. At Little Shepherds’ Schoolhouse, we form the bridge that connects the learning of today to the purpose of the future. 

Your Child, Our Joyful Learner.

Welcome to the Little Shepherds’ Schoolhouse, owned and managed by an approved charity, the Catholic Preschool Education (Singapore) Pte Ltd.

Our name may be new, but each and every of our centres has been in operation individually for many years now, with generations of our young having passed through its portals.

By coming together as a group, we aspire to make the kids under our care, joyful learners, while preparing them for their future education. We want to inspire in them the love for learning and contribute to their growth in virtues, in harmony with self, the environment and society. Our team of dedicated professionals will work closely with our parents to realise this vision and mission.

Beyond meeting ECDA’s educational requirements, the Little Shepherds’ Schoolhouse curriculum focuses on building our kids’ body, mind and heart, and spirituality for sustainability. Our kids come from different socioeconomic, ethnic and religious backgrounds, thus creating a vibrant and enriching learning environment.

Thank you for choosing to be part of the Little Shepherds’ Schoolhouse learning community.
