We acknowledge that the pre-school years are a critical period for the development of children. The quality of time spent at kindergarten is crucial to future success in school. They help build a foundation for our children’s future, their development in later school years and their contribution to building the society of the future. The years of early development establish the foundations for learning emotionally, socially, spiritually, physically and intellectually.
Young children begin learning in a variety of environments before they enter kindergarten – in their homes, in playgroup programs and in the community. They bring varied levels of knowledge to any learning situation based on their environment. When our program helps them to explore the world around them and guide them through the transition from home to school, they benefit greatly. Over the years, we have made refinements to our curriculum to meet the objective of nurturing a well-rounded development of our children.
We invite you to take a look at our website and find out more about our programme and visit us at our Kindergarten.

Just an example - as parents are not allowed to be physically present for the graduation ceremony last year, BKK organised a live zoom session so parents can join in virtually and allowed the graduation robes to be brought home so that Kaira can excitedly take pictures with the whole family.

We could not have asked for more. We are so thankful to have made the right decision to enrol our children at BKK and remain grateful to the extraordinary teachers and staff. They never fail to go beyond themselves for the children!
Mr and Mrs Rajarajeshwaran
At different times, we have placed our children in other early childhood education centres. While these other centres do a reasonable job of teaching and helping the child to learn and taking care of the child, we do not feel the same love and care for the children. While those teachers were nice and treat the children well, it felt more like a job they had to do. The teachers in BKK are different. We can sense the love they have for the children and what they do seem more a calling!

“I cast all of my cares upon You
I lay all of my burdens down at your feet
And any time I don’t know what to do
I will cast all of my cares upon You”
The words lifted me up! Thank you BKK for all the precious years.
