New Danish Kindergarten opened in Singapore

Preparations took one year, but finally the daily Danish Kingergarten “Mariehønen” could open its doors to the first children earlier this year.
       Mariehoenen is primarily meant for children 2-5 years who either speak Danish, or whose parents want them to do so. They would for instance be children of Danish expats, or children from mixed marriages.
       Mariehønen is located on 11 Akyab Road, Singapore. It is headed by Lisbeth Jorgensen and Jette Lund, who both used to work in the former 1-day-per-week Danish kindergarten in Singapore. Now they have rented and renovated a large black-and-white house, and the kindergarten is now open every day, Monday – Friday, 9-15.
       The kindergarten is run according to Danish principles. The children will develop their personality, creativity, and social skills by playing and interacting with each other. There will be NO formal teaching, in contrast to most other kindergartens in the region.
       Mariehønen has already been up and running for some month, and the kids are all very happy, and enjoy their days in there.
       Mariehønen was formally opened on 1 June 2003 by the Danish Ambassador in Singapore, H.E Joergen Ohrstrom Moeller.
       Interested persons should contact one of Mariehønen’s two leaders:

       Jette Lund : [email protected] +65 9816 8472
