What makes Tiny Mountains unique?
Unlike other sports enrichment programmes, Tiny Mountains takes pride in our unique approach to engaging children through the use of music and storytelling. As certified preschool educators, we realise that there is an innate and unlearned response children have towards these two aspects, especially from a very young age. Recognising this, we have woven both music and storytelling into every class, providing children with a multi-sensory approach to learning basic fundamental movement skills.
Our original stories capture their attention and sense of wonder, while our snazzy tunes naturally coax them to move and dance in all our fun activities!
We believe that each child has potential the size of a mountain, and we are dedicated to nurturing that potential to its fullest!
We believe that children learn best through movement and by being active. A lifelong commitment to an active lifestyle begins from a young age.
We believe that fun is integral to a child's development, and should never be sacrificed.
Message from Our Founder
Tiny Mountains began from this simple statement:
"Children may be small, but they are able to do so much."
My name is Titus, and as the Founder of Tiny Mountains I’d like to share our story with you. When I first began this journey, I didn't know where it would take me. All I knew was that I wanted the world to see what children are capable of, and for children to know that they are capable of so much.
With the help and support of the leadership team at MYNT, Tiny Mountains began in 2020 under their cluster of Maple Bear preschools. Then COVID hit. Despite the challenges the pandemic threw our way, we were able to deliver our Tiny Mountains magic through the screen, thanks to the efforts of the team and the support of schools (and technology)! Two years later, we emerged from the pandemic with a crystallized understanding of what makes a Tiny Mountains class so special, and a renewed appreciation for the joy that is having fun outdoors, together.
Today, our team has grown, and so have the number of schools and weekend locations with Tiny Mountains classes. I am so grateful for the love, support and kindness we have received from parents and educators along the way, and hope you and your little ones enjoy this journey we are all on together.
Tiny Mountains, here we go!
