My Little Compass transcends the role of a conventional preschool; it emerges as a sanctuary where we nurture the flame of curiosity, where the palette of creativity is adorned with vibrant shades, and where the very seeds of lifelong learning take root and flourish.
My Little Compass encompasses a realm where every child's innate wonder is cherished and nourished. Drawing inspiration from esteemed educational philosophies like Montessori and the power of play, we craft a holistic educational experience that caters to the unique strengths and passions of each individual child.
At My Little Compass, we embark on an educational journey that cherishes the true essence of learning. Our Montessori play-based preschool is founded on three core values, each breathing life into our commitment to fostering holistic growth and cultivating exceptional individuals.
Play as the Pathway: Rediscovering the Magic of Learning
In a world often overtaken by complexity, we hold true to the principle that play is the fundamental conduit to meaningful education. At My Little Compass, we recognize the power of play in unlocking a child's innate curiosity, driving their physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.
Back-to-the-Basics: Cultivating the Beauty of Simplicity
Our educational philosophy revolves around the importance of back-to-the-basics learning. We understand that true understanding is nurtured through hands-on experiences and authentic interactions. This approach forms the bedrock of our commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals.
Guided Exploration: Fostering Creativity, Collaboration, and Individuality
Inspired by Maria Montessori's wisdom and the foundations of play-based learning, we create a setting that enables children to explore at their own pace. This exploration sparks creativity, sharpens problem-solving abilities, and ignites collaborative spirit. We celebrate individual strengths, fostering an environment where each child thrives and excels.

During infancy, young minds enthusiastically absorb their surroundings. My Little Compass integrates Montessori and play-based approaches to establish a comprehensive foundation in their infant programme. Montessori's emphasis on individual progress is evident in the customized environment, fostering confidence through early autonomy. Play-based learning complements this, promoting curiosity and interaction. Sensory experiences further align with Montessori's principles, nurturing cognitive growth through hands-on engagement.
During the toddler years, curiosity fuels rapid growth as young minds explore. My Little Compass combines Montessori and play-based methods for an engaging toddler programme. Montessori principles empower independence and hands-on learning, promoting decision-making skills. Teachers guide toddlers with age-appropriate materials, fostering confidence and cognitive development. Play-based philosophy complements Montessori, using play as a natural learning mode. Play encourages exploration, social skills, and problem-solving. Imaginative play and interactive activities hone motor skills and nurture curiosity.
Our Nursery program showcases Montessori's impact on nurturing young minds. It blends an intricately designed environment with Montessori materials, fostering cognitive growth and character development. Children thrive with concentration, confidence, independence, and social skills.
The Montessori philosophy promotes respect, responsibility, and shared ownership. Our curriculum seamlessly integrates art and music, promoting creative imagination and strengthening passion. While English is the primary language of instruction, we also introduce Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysia, promoting a well-rounded, multicultural perspective.
Nature plays a teaching role, with outdoor activities like nature walks, gardening, and play enhancing curiosity and creativity.
Presently, we provide Intensive Mandarin within our enrichment programme, as we recognize the significance of fostering a comprehensive linguistic foundation.
The Montessori Method, devised by Dr. Maria Montessori, centers on children's inherent curiosity and exploration. It prioritizes a child-centered approach, prepared environments, self-directed learning, mixed-age groups, hands-on learning, freedom with limits, and respect for each child. The method aims for holistic development, incorporating practical life skills. Its success lies in its alignment with children's natural tendencies, fostering a love for learning, and creating an environment where children flourish. The Montessori Method equips children with independence, critical thinking, and responsibility, fostering skills for success beyond the classroom.
Play-based learning recognizes play's crucial role in child development. It centers on child-driven exploration, embracing subjects of interest to foster motivation. This approach supports holistic growth across cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and creative domains through open-ended, hands-on experiences. It encourages imagination, social interactions, intrinsic motivation, problem-solving, and embraces teacher facilitation. Not bound by age, play-based learning sees play as fundamental to learning, nurturing academic, emotional, and social success.
