Our Brief History
Paya Lebar Methodist Church (PLMC) Covenant Kindergarten began as Covenant Nursery in 1986. PLMC Covenant Kindergarten started in 15 April 1991. It is registered with MOE and occupies the Covenant Centre at Boundary Road.

In January 1999, the kindergarten moved back to Boundary Road from Elling Primary School (temporary location). With the beautiful new Sanctuary and Covenant Centre standing out at the junction of Upper Serangoon Road and Boundary Road, we hope to be a Beacon of Light to all around us. We provide a premier pre-school education as well as Christian values and compassion to the neighbourhood.

Our Vision and Philosophy
We are a premier kindergarten providing Christian values and quality pre-school education. We believe that children are unique and learn best through play. Teachers and parents play an important role in children’s holistic development.

Our Curriculum
At PLMC Covenant Kindergarten, we embrace a curriculum that supports children’s holistic development. Learning is integrated to develop each child’s cognitive, physical, social-emotional, artistic and creative potential. Lessons are planned based on a theme or topic of investigation. Children are provided with opportunities to develop key knowledge, skills and dispositions in the areas of:

  • Language and Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Motor Skills Development
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Aesthetics and Creative Expression
  • Discovery of the world
  • Christian Education

As a church-run kindergarten, we aim to nurture Christian values and character in every child for them to be compassionate, confident and responsible.

Learning is enhanced as the Kindergarten offer enrichment programme before and after school hours. Classes include Chinese Integrated programme, Thinking programme, Science, Speech & Drama, Art and Lego Robotics.
