Our Educational Mission:
Preparing Children for Life!

Our company provides high-energy, resource rich Speech and Drama classes to schools and organizations. For over 20 years we have taught more than 200,000 children and hundreds of teachers.

We began our history out of community service offering specialised classes with a Singapore theatre company, pre-concert storytelling, theatre workshops, and services to national organizations and schools.

ACTs of life offers unique opportunities to actively integrate children's academic readiness through the learning of the Arts and more, while developing in each a more in-depth knowledge of themselves and others.

We do this through our 4 P’s Learning System:
