In 2018, Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) became the first and only international affiliate of Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts. Singapore Wolf Trap aims to serve children aged three to six years, as well as their educators, parents, and caregivers, using Wolf Trap’s proven arts integration model.  The model pairs arts-based learning experiences for children with powerful, effective professional development for early childhood educators.  Educators receive hands-on, customized coaching, working side by side with professional teaching artists to develop arts-based skills, and discover how to engage nursery and kindergarten learners in core curriculum subjects through singing, dancing, role-playing, storytelling and more. 

Could you be the next Singapore Wolf Trap Artist? Singapore Wolf Trap programme is expanding and will be auditioning Singaporean Artists to begin their Wolf Trap journey.  

“What I love about Wolf Trap is how it knows no boundaries - from the experience of meeting fellow members from different parts of the world to sharing strategies of all creative disciplines openly to the continued growth you can see in yourself as an artist!” Dwayne Tan, SG Wolf Trap

What is Arts Integration? 

Arts-integrated learning aims to enhance learning by using acting, singing, dancing, role-playing, storytelling and more to attain core curriculum objectives. The results — mastery of key curricular concepts and art skills for teachers and students.

Who are Teaching Artists? 
SRT Learning & Engagement defines the role of a teaching artist as an actor, musician, dancer, or performer who practices their craft at a high level whilst also utilizing their craft to enhance learning and engagement for their participants.  

A teaching artist can bring their creativity and curiosity into the classroom in a safe, structured, and intentional manner — combining their artistry with sound pedagogical practice. 

A word from the inaugural Singapore Wolf Trap Team

“Thank you, Singapore Wolf Trap, for being such a huge support system in helping me hone my craft and aiding me in my residencies. They always try to think of ways to help me upgrade myself and my skillset to make me more confident in teaching.” – Carin Tay, SG Wolf Trap

Wolf Trap has dramatically reframed my approach towards early childhood teaching! To learn about the world is to develop curiosity and care for it. With the Wolf Trap methodology, student -centric expression is the most effective way of engaging meaningfully with young minds.” Grace Lee-Khoo, SG Wolf Trap 

“What I love about Wolf Trap is how it knows no boundaries - from the experience of meeting fellow members from different parts of the world to sharing strategies of all creative disciplines openly to the continued growth you can see in yourself as an artist!” Dwayne Tan, SG Wolf Trap
