ACADEMY OF THOUGHTS

Natural Instinct is the birthchild of Jonathan and is the first of its kind in Singapore that infuses a unique blend of fitness and forestry which caters to children as young as 4 years old and above.

We believe in the combination of outdoor education and professional fitness programmes for our younger generation, to not only combat sedentary urban lifestyles and childhood obesity but to also give them a strong head start in life and keep them active even as they continue into adulthood.

We also believe that by immersing children in different natural environment hones their experimental and hands-on skills. Hence, opportunities are naturally curated to think, question and come up with hypotheses which greatly contribute to the development of their inquisitive minds.

We aim to serve as a bridge to reconnect our younglings back to Mother Nature where technology and urbanisation is rapidly taking over. We seek not only to cultivate in them a love and respect for nature but also to impart the science behind forestry such as learning how to better manage, repair, conserve as we optimize our natural resources.

OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Our highly qualified and experienced instructors act as educators, supporters, role models and guardians to the children as they learn and develop through our curated activities.

Our coaches will also actively engage the children. Therefore, every session with us will not be a waste of time as we aim to maximize it by infusing meaningful play time with theme-based learning while ensuring quality interaction with Mother Nature.

We maintain a small class ratio of 1:6 for the best interest of every children.
