Thank You to Mr. Robert Pereira for a Very Fruitful Parent Workshop and Teacher Training!

31 March

BibiNogs would like to extend our appreciation to Mr. Robert Pereira, a world reknowned trainer/educator, for conducting a very engaging Parent Workshop and Teacher Training session for our parents and teachers last Saturday, 25th March 2017!

The Parent Workshop was titled “How to Manage Our Expectations to Raise Happy Children”. Parents and caregivers had a fruitful morning hearing from Mr. Pereira, reviewing cases studies together and exchanging personal anecdotes and lessons.

In the afternoon, BibiNogs teachers were trained by Mr. Pereira on the topic of “Anti-Bullying Strategies in Young Children”. Mr. Pereira shared his expert viewpoints about causes of bullying, strategies to curb negative behaviours and strategies on how to help children manage.

BibiNogs’ Charity Event and Parent Workshop

19 December

On December 3rd, BibiNogs held its Annual Charity Event. Every year, BibiNogs organises a charity event to give back to the community, locally or abroad. This year, we were pleased to be supporting the NUHS Fund – a fund set up by National University Hospital of Singapore to support children with severe medical conditions needing funds for medical treatment.

At the same event, there was a 45-minute parent workshop conducted by our Director, Ms Joyce Lim. Joyce has 20 years of experience in the Early Childhood field and is a certified trainer. The topic of the workshop was “Primary One Preparation: Raising Resilient Kids”. 

Parents had a fruitful time attending the workshop and purchasing second-hand books (and directly contributing to NUHS Fund this way), while children had a wonderful time creating crafts and engaging in hands-on activities!

BibiNogs’ Cultural and Educational Exchange with Delegates from Russia, Kazakhstan & Serbia

29 November

On 16 November 2017, delegates from  Russia, Kazakhstan and Serbia visited BibiNogs Preschool at King’s Arcade. The delegates’ goals were to: study BibiNogs’ best practices, understand our curriculum and pedagogy/teaching approaches, as well as to get to know the rich cultures and traditions that exist in Singapore. The delegates were educators, school leaders, business leaders as well as officials from government agencies.

The delegates observed our teachers and children in their classrooms. Our children engaged the delegates in activities as well as put up a performance for them. A lively and fruitful exchange then took place between the delegates and our Teachers, Principals and Directors. At the end of their visit, BibiNogs children presented the delegates with Batik art pieces that they created themselves!

Appreciation of Global Cultures – Happy Deepavali!

14 November

One of BibiNogs’ goals is to groom children to be appreciative of global cultures.

Over Deepavali, the Festival of Lights, we not only celebrated the festival but immersed ourselves in a variety of cultural activities. The children discovered so much about the festival! More importantly, the fun and hands-on activities allowed them to understand more about the Indian culture.

Teachers’ Day 2016 – A Special Day to Thank Our Teachers!

13 September

Teachers’ Day is always the most special day of the year at BibiNogs. On this day, we show gratitude to our teachers for their hard work and dedication, and shower them with the same kind of love that they give the children everyday.

On 1st of September, our centres were open only in the morning. In the afternoon, all teachers gathered at our King’s Arcade Preschool for an afternoon of celebration and pampering. The day ended with a heartwarming and lovely dinner. Happy Teachers’ Day, and Thank You, to all the wonderful teachers of BibiNogs!
