Hi all,

I would greatly appreciate if there are any MOE Kindergarten Teachers who are undergoing training/teaching at MOE kindergarten to share their experiences (good and bad).

I am currently looking to enter the industry and would like to hear from teachers who are already in the job! As well as those who are on the training prog!


I have got quite a few questions as well and would be very glad if someone can help me :)

1) What are the working hours like?
2) How is the workload like? Any difference compared to myfirstskool etc?
3) Based on the MOE website, there will be a salary given while undergoing training. How much can I look forward to be looking at?
4) "The starting salary for a trained candidate ranges from $2,350 - $4,106." I took this from their website. Is the high end of 4k really true?
I suppose that starting salary means at the base level of a junior teacher... So if you have certain experiences that MOE values etc, at the starting level with their diploma, there is a chance to get 4k? (because based on my research, for an entry level teacher, it seems like the max possible is 3k only...)

You can also share any other rants/good things about the job! Would love to hear from you :)

I am already in the EC industry as i love working with kids, so i am considering this programme :)

THANKS :) Your sharing will def help me (and others I am sure) in the long run :)

Oh my.. You mean they can actually shortlist you but after filling up annex a then never contact you? Now I’m worried :(. I applied during the window application period sept-oct4..Received an email yst to fill up annex a. Now that you mentioned this, really hoping they would contact me and you too for interview details!! Also, in August when you applied, I think there was no application period.. so maybe they would look into your application now for interview!! Keeping fingers crossed!

Hi..there was an application period and it ended on 9 Aug back then. Really unsure of what is the status right now as in career@gov, it is still stated as In Process and some said that I would have received rejection email by now if rejected. Keeping my fingers crossed but no high hopes!

So good congratulations!! That was long... When’s your interview?
Thank you, it was! The Annex A email request was on 27 August and then this, on 9 Oct. Interview is next week on the 14th. I believe you are applying for the trained teacher position? Since they did request for Annex A like mine, high chance they will update you with thevinterview details, just a matter of when! Good luck!

Hi...sorry for the late update! Went for my interview on the 14th. Two segments:
a) Written in EL & ML: Same qns (qualities of a presch tr and what shld preschoolers learn in schools?
b) Interview in EL & ML as well (3 panel: HR, Presch & Subj Specialists)
Intense 35-40 mins Q&A. Too many questions, can't remember all.
- Why do you want to be a presch tr?
- MK curriculum?
- How would you teach the preschoolers?

I was notified of the result the next day as I think they are rushing as the 5 day MK Experience has to be conducted by end Oct.

Hope this helps! All the best for your interview!

Hi ,sorry for my delay reply. Yes, I have went to medical check up. My case a bit special due to I went for interview last year and have done medical check up last year. But due to my personal reason I only can enrolled year 2021 batch. So my status change to offered has waited for 10months. I just received the update email from MOE yesterday (9th Dec 2020) to confirm attend the AF session. Have you receive any updates yet?
