Sister Community

It takes a village to raise a child

We have 64 Sisters

as of 5 May 2022

The sister community is a fellowship of groups and people who we have connected with and find that we share similar values and passion for the community whether in the arts, nature, education, music or more.  The Sister Community was started because we didnt want to feel alone in this journey to make a difference to our communities. It was that simple. Hence being in this group require no fees, condition or commitment.

Joining us will entail being added onto this page, and a whatsapp group chat with all the other sisters…

When you are ready, and wish to join the sister community, you can fill in the form below

Nature Explorers School, Singapore (FS)

At Nature Explorers School, they believe in a child-led way of learning and that being outdoors and close to nature is the best way to develop a child holistically. As everyone is unique with different strengths and different preferred ways of learning, so the way we teach children also needs to be customised to their abilities. Their experienced coaches will engage children with a scaffolding approach, which means allowing them space to try on their own and knowing when to introduce new insights and skills. They want children to trust their instincts and do their own risk assessments, while observing them with a watchful eye. When children have time to do things that they enjoy, they develop a better sense of identity, better self esteem and gain a more positive outlook of life in general.
Started and led by Jenson Ong.
