System Thinking for children is a program and learning resources for preschool children to learn and obtain necessary life skills to grow as a whole person.

about the innovation

An essential life skill

"The discipline of systems thinking provides a different way of looking at problems and goals—not as isolated events but as components of larger but less visible structures that affect each other. To understand a system is to understand those interrelationships and how they recur and change over time." Schools That Learn

What if our children know that everything is interconnected, rather than seeing facts and events in isolation? What if our children have a bird's-eye view, not an insect's-eye view? What if our children understand that our environment is fluid and changing, not static.

It is our genuine desire to raise our children who are equipped with essential life skills that will enable them to become responsible, productive and, above all, happy citizens. 

We believe that System Thinking is an essential life skill which can be introduced to preschool children with organised small steps.
