Ms. Esther Lim is the Founder of LEAP SchoolHouse and the Curriculum Director of LEAP EDUCATION GROUP, which manages both LEAP KIDS Preschool and LEAP SchoolHouse from Singapore.
Holding a Master Degree in Education (NTU/NIE), Esther has over 17 years of teaching and training experiences under her belt. Starting off as a teacher, Esther worked through the ranks, and was appointed the Head of Department (English) for a local primary school in 2004 to oversee the development, implementation and assessment aspects of the subject area. In 2007, Esther joined the Curriculum Planning and Development Division Unit (CPDD/MOE) under the Ministry of Education (Singapore) to help conceptualise and develop the curriculum for the primary unit.
Her experiences led her to see the need for a good preschool that is able to bridge the gap between the existing kindergarten and primary curriculums, and also one that can provide quality language programmes to help children develop strong literacy skills. Hence in 2009, she established LEAP SchoolHouse to be the answer to these needs.
