The Hungry Caterpillar Story
Nurturing Movers and Shapers of Our Future Through Our Unique World Class Integrated Program
The Hungry Caterpillar is inspired by lessons from the bestselling children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, which is about a caterpillar exploring and consuming various food items through the week and later on metamorphosing into a butterfly. At The Hungry Caterpillar, we hope to be the safe and secure cocoon to let children explore their interests and fulfill their needs to become thriving, well-rounded individuals.
What sets The Hungry Caterpillar apart is that we are the first in Klang Valley to incorporate multiple internationally-acclaimed teaching systems and methods. This unique program, with a harmonious integration of systems such as Jolly Phonics, Singaporean mathematics and Kindermusik, allows children to learn and explore in fun and creative ways. We utilise the British-based Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework to guide our teaching and enrichment activities, which is also compatible with the local childhood education curriculum (NPSC). At the end of the day, we are thrilled to say our students are learning from the best of many international standards.
We believe our students will grow up to leave meaningful impact, therefore they need a solid foundation in education that prioritises positive values. The journey that your child will experience at The Hungry Caterpillar will be unlike any other, as we focus on building strong characters and intellectual capacities simultaneously. In line with the whole-child focus which we subscribe to, we will give individualised attention to nurture your child’s cognitive, personal and physical development.
The Hungry Caterpillar is located in a linked double story corner lot in the residential area of Petaling Jaya, which contains state-of-the-art facilities and amenities. We are also proud of our experienced staff who have strong backgrounds in a variety of disciplines - education, child psychology, languages and arts. Here at The Hungry Caterpillar, we will ensure your child feels comfortable and welcomed in our space, no matter their background.
The Hungry Caterpillar Mission and Vision
At The Hungry Caterpillar, we believe our students will grow up with immense capabilities as an individual and as a contributor to the society they will be in. Therefore, we hope to foster a strong and positive foundation for students to learn critically and independently. We aspire to build an international community where respect is given to everyone regardless of class, nationality, race and religion.
To fulfill this vision, we aim to communicate our values through the provision of a holistic child-centered environment that is conducive for personal development. Teaching methods are also student-centered, ensuring each student learns in the best way possible. Through a collaborative ecosystem of staff, family and students, we will be able to explore the young student’s interests and develop their potential.
