 Founder's Story

Being an educator for the past 7 years, I have had the chance to look at education from many perspectives. With the wealth of experience teaching, I learnt that student thrives with human connection, how the power of this connection can drive a child to be an empowering and successful individual in their respective education journey.

Graduating with Early Childhood Education & Care, I dedicated my early years teaching. When I left the industry few years ago, I started self-studying as I found my passion to be helping children and youth, not just on academic but social success too. From Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to Modern Applied Psychology as well as Neuro-linguistic Programming, I constantly find courses to expand my knowledge and learn new skills. Despite not holding the role of an educator within an education sector, I have been consistently teaching children grade 1-7 privately even till date. During this period, I have personally witnessed the power of how a personalized and engaging learning with a positive connection between the learner and myself, has successfully help my student to meet his potential and sparks the love of learning.

With the vision of wanting to help more children to foster the love of learning and maximizing their potential, I started Exploart (Exploring a child’s full potential through the Art of Play).


Exploart aims to be a leading enrichment education, specializing in Mandarin classes for children learning as second language. Other than Mandarin, parents can find programs from speech and drama to swimming, all being delivered dynamically onsite at their homes by teachers who are professionals and most importantly, with a heart to connect and inspire. Our programs are unique as we tailor the lessons specially to the learning style and level of the child, well experience working with children as young as 18 months to 19 years.

We value parent’s involvement in their child’s education, so we offer an open door approach where parents are always welcome to discuss any points of interest or concern with us. We believe that working closely with parents and their school helps to build a positive and supportive community. Driving all of this is a vision in believing that every child can unlock their potential and stretch beyond their mastery. As Rita Pierson says, every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be. 


In order to deliver the best learning experience, Exploart handpicks professional and passionate teachers who are not only passionate about their subject matter but also, one who always believes in the child and encourages them to be best that they can be. No matter which program a learner joins onboard, we aim to develop them into creative thinkers, proficient problem solvers, passionate speakers and empathetic listeners. All these to be made possible by creating an ideal learning environment with an educator who believes in making a difference to the learner’s life.

James Comer says that no significant learning can occur without a significant relationship. Through our growing years, some of us may have been lucky to be impacted by a teacher or an adult. 

Who was the teacher that has changed your life? 

In Exploart, all our teachers strive to be that one significant person. 

For those whom have supported us right from our early start up, thank you for believing in us. We will continue to do our best. For all new families that will be joining us too, we thank you for taking that first step into trusting our program.

We look forward to working closely with you.
