Forest Fair

For over 20 years, Greentree Montessori’s Forest Fair has been a gift for our children, our alumni and the community. Hosted by the children, teachers and parents of Greentree Montessori, it is a playful day of laughter, fun and memorable experiences. Attended by guests and visitors from all over Singapore, new and returning friends come together to enjoy the company of each other and the rich activities created for this special day.

Greentree Montessori’s Forest Fair brings together the inspiration and ideas of children to present their best creations, workmanship and enterprising spirit to the community. The fair features feasting, shopping, crafting activities and games for guests of all ages. 

At the Forest Fair, look forward to see our children and their families run stalls and game stations of their choice and design. Fair-goers can fill their stomach and indulge in lovingly prepared food selections or get creative at various arts and crafts booths making intricate handmade items to give or keep as gifts. Adventurous individuals may try their skills at the game stations to attempt to win meaningful souvenirs to keep as a memento.

Entertainment at the Fair includes special storytelling sessions by our teachers, performance items by the children of Greentree Montessori as well as face painting and balloon twisting.

In addition to the multitude of activities, Forest Fair also features shopping! Showcasing natural toys, books, unique art pieces and handmade gifts enjoyed by both children and adults alike.

Since the year 2020, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have turned Forest Fair into an Online event.
