Inspiring your child to explore the joy of different learning styles

GUG Growing Smart introduces young children from as young as 6 months old, to the world of learning through exciting experiments and stimulating activities, inspiring children to become avid explorers of language, music, science, art and math.

The first school to launch play-based phonics for babies and toddlers, Growing Smart is where children get a head start with strong reading and literacy skills. As young as 18 months old, children are able to master the phonics skills necessary for a strong foundation in spoken language, reading and writing.

At GUG, learning goes deeper so children can go even further.

Testimonial

"Arel has been attending GUG since a baby. Both he and I have experienced nothing short of an exciting curriculum that is valuable and enriching, yet entertaining. GUG can definitely pride itself with worthy programmes delivered by equally worthy educators. Having attended Smart Babes and Smart Tots programmes together with my son, I can personally attest to the quality and dedication of GUG’s teachers. They motivated him and gave him the confidence to speak and sing, and express himself effectively at a very tender age."
