About us.


Our Philosophy.

We believe in the Montessori method of education. This pedagogy is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for the child’s natural, psychological, physical, and social development. We adhere to the requirements of an authentic Montessori environment

Our Mission.

Our mission is to nurture the potential in each child and to assist the child in his/her holistic development in the areas of physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. 

Our History.

Our History P&J has been in operations since 1991. Passionate about the Montessori method, two ladies, Patricia Cordeiro and Julie Ong, set up the school that bears the initials of their first names. Patricia has since emigrated to the U.S. with her family but Julie remains and continues to provide guidance and direction for P&J. Since inception, P&J has grown with the years and established itself as an authentic Montessori kindergarten providing good quality education for children between the ages of 2 1/2 to 6 1/2 years. In 2009, P&J won the Innovation award and was also selected as a finalist for Best Practices by the Ministry of Education, Singapore. Our innovative curriculum continued to help us win 3 more innovation grants in subsequent years. To date, we continue to engage children in a holistic way of learning. Each child progresses through an individually tailored program consisting of language development for both English and Mandarin, Math, Science, Geography, Art and Music.
