About Us

Expertise, Experience & Quality


Growing Up Gifted was founded in 2002 by Deanne Chong-Duffield (M.Ed), who is a U.S. qualified Curriculum Specialist in Early Childhood and Gifted Education. Initially conceived to address her need for “the best preschool” for her son, our school started as a little corner unit in a mall. Over the years, enrollments grew steadily by word-of-mouth publicity. Today, Growing Up Gifted is recognized as a multiple award-winning brand, and ranked as one of the best preschools in Singapore.
Notwithstanding the years since 2002, our mission has remained unchanged – to realize the potential in children by offering the finest preschool education based on gifted education concepts. Every effort is made to achieve this continuously with our expertise in curriculum, carefully selected teachers and exclusively produced resources. We are here to help your child develop the necessary skills needed to experience both success and joy in their milestone achievements.
Growing Up Gifted’s curriculum is both holistic and progressive. And having come a long way to being one of the top preschools in Singapore, we can assure you that your child will not only be well equipped for the academic demands of the Singapore primary school syllabus, but also for the developmental challenges of their growing years.


"Higher thinking abilities, creative thinking skills, and leadership qualities are developed at a young age. In our classrooms, children acquire them through a process that is entirely fun and motivating!" ~ Deanne Chong-Duffield

Growing Up Gifted Students Stand Out In Primary Schooling

Even though we welcome children of all abilities into our classrooms, track records have shown that 94-97% of GUG Kindergarten graduates are ranked within the TOP 10 Students of their respective Primary Schools and/or P1 classes;

and a high percentage of up to 25% of our students gain admissions to Singapore’s Gifted Education Programme (GEP).
