About Us



Two by Two is a preschool cum enrichment centre with an innovative and dynamic curriculum. We specialize in language acquisition in young children, particularly in Mandarin and we have successfully developed a curriculum that not only takes the tedium out of learning Mandarin, but also develops a child holistically in English, Math and Science. Our children are exposed to a wide variety of subjects, including the Arts and Sports and are encouraged to constantly explore and experiment.

We have been in operation since 2010 and have built a reputation as a centre for quality, play based and experiential programs. We have successfully created a stress free, natural learning environment in order to nurture an effectively bilingual child.


Two by Two Schoolhouse is blessed to have an incredible team! These women bring a wealth of knowledge, positive energy, and genuine care and concern for the children under their charge. As a team, they create an inviting, enriching and exciting environment in the classroom. Individually, they are caring and dynamic teachers who constantly encourage children to try new experiences and embrace life long learning.

Teacher Li-Anne & Teacher Yiling
Two by Two Schoolhouse was founded on the philosophy that play shapes how children make sense of their worlds, how they develop thinking skills, and how they acquire language. Being experienced educators themselves, these two mums strongly believe that structured and imaginative play is a crucial component of a child’s development and a holistic exposure to diverse subject matter will ultimately influence all aspects of a child’s life. Li-Anne and Yiling wanted to create only the best environment for their children to learn during their formative preschool years and they constantly strive to continue to work with their teachers to maintain strong links with parents and the home in order to develop an effectively bilingual, creative, resilient and morally upright child.
