We are BRMCK
Barker Road Methodist Church Kindergarten (BRMCK) was established on 15th August 1967 with the late Mrs Joyce Foster, Lay Missionary appointed as the first principal.
The Kindergarten which is an outreach arm of Barker Road Methodist Church (BRMC), enjoys close proximity and spiritual affinity with the Methodist Church in Singapore and the ACS family of schools.
We have implemented the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program since 2017. At the core of the curriculum is Inquiry Learning where the students are given a voice, choice and ownership. We focus on ten attributes on what makes an excellent learner by becoming: thinkers, communicators, inquirers, caring, knowledgeable, open-minded, balanced, risk-taker, principled and reflective.
We also provide an academic foundation for our children to excel. We use the Ministry of Education (Singapore) curriculum for Nurturing Early Learners to develop six important domains – literacy, numeracy, environmental awareness, arts and aesthetics, physical and motor developments as well as social and emotional developments.
These two frameworks provide a balanced and holistic approach to prepare the child for the 21st century.
Barker Road Methodist Church Kindergarten is a candidate school* for the PYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Montessori Enrichment Programme
BRMCK’s Montessori Program is a carefully planned enrichment program to complement the BRMCK mainstream curriculum.
The program aims to help children lay a strong foundation for independent learning and to help them reach full potential in all areas of life.
The holistic curriculum covers five main Montessori subject areas which promote the development of physical coordination, cognitive preparation, emotional growth, as well as social skills in children.
