CEO Message

Education is changing, just like in other fields. Indeed education needs to lead changes because education predetermines the skills and mindset of our future workers. Nurture Craft is acutely aware of these needs. For more than 20 years, Nurture Craft has been leading change in education. Since 1992, we have led the need for change in how schools and home educate children.

 

In 1992, Nurture Craft together with University of California Los Angeles pioneered the call for high contrast baby toys. Three years later, the association of pediatrician, USA published a manual encouraging parents and caregivers to do so. We have been at the forefront in the movement for teaching thinking, multiple intelligences, mind maps and question thinking.

 

Since the year 2000, we have been encouraging the inclusion of pedagogies to help students live in a world of complexity and uncertainty. We have also been promoting the development of character through thinking dispositions. We are pleased that our efforts to help schools and other learning institutions to infuse these pedagogies have benefited thousands of students in Singapore and the region.

 

As we move into the future, we will continue to address the need to develop student’s thinking skills and attitudes in preparation for a world that is increasingly complex and uncertain. We relentlessly scour the horizon for thoughtful leaders to do this with us. We are proud to include new international thoughtful leaders such as Marilee Adams, Ph.D., into our list of esteemed partners.

 

We look forward to collaborating with your school in preparing our students for the future.
