There are many ways to describe how we feel about our teachers whose dedication and perseverance have helped all our Group’s preschool brands to forge ahead in a time of national crisis to give their best to our preschool children.

In 2020, they were Extraordinary in facing the most challenging year in their career. This year, the challenges triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic continue to weigh heavily on them. They continue to juggle with concerns for the safety of their children at school and loved ones at home, and how to deliver the best possible learnings for their young charges..

Our family of teachers and staff have been our brave front liners and unsung heroes. And, they have continued to be “Simply Amazing”.

On Teacher’s Day 2021 (3 September), the Crestar Education Group and the five brands Kinderland, ELFA, NurtureStars, The Grange Institution and Skool4Kidz placed an advertisement in the Straits Times to thank all the teachers for their hard work, dedication and resilience through the pandemic.

Wishing them a “Happy Teacher’s Day”, it aims to encourage the teachers to press on with their noble efforts.

The ad is headlined “Times are still challenging, but our teacher have been …..’Simply Amazing’ ”

“On behalf of all our 20,000 students in Singapore and the region, we would like to say a big Thank You to our wonderful teachers. In a world that is still far from bright, you gave us the energy to keep going.

From home-based learning to hybrid schooling, fresh challenges continue to surface, demanding more of your time, energy and effort. But you rose mightily to the task- supporting, participating and engaging. Always ready to go the extra mile to make learning more creative and fun.

Happy Teachers’ Day.”
