ABOUT STELLAR EDUCATION
Welcome to Stellar Education. Our group name, STELLAR signifies outstanding performance and at the same time, it alludes to our hopes, that our students will shine brightly like stars throughout their lives, not only in their diversity and uniqueness but also by their contributions to society and making this world a better place.
Stellar Education was founded in 2016 and comprised of a pre-school, an enrichment centre and also a student services centre. We aim to provide quality education for the families with children living in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. From our humble beginnings to the rise into one of the best preschool in Johor Bahru. It soon became apparent that a new campus would be required to cope with rapidly growing enrolment, aligning with our ultimate goal will be to set up a private International school for our children to extend their education with beyond preschool at Stellar.
We have adopted the UCSI Education Group as our role model and we discovered much learning from them. UCSI Group is a leading multi-disciplinary conglomerate based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Group began with education as its niche when Dato’ Peter T.S.Ng founded UCSI in 1986. Currently, UCSI University holds the number one ranking as Malaysia’s best private university in the QS World University Rankings of 2019. Placing it in the top 2% of all universities in the world.
Stellar Preschool is an independent educational institution with a structure, style and traditions that emanate from the UK and with a curriculum and methodology that reflects the best in global educational research and practice. Stellar Preschool is also a dynamic and diverse environment where students enjoy a fun-filled and engaging experience, where their parent’s aspirations for their futures met, both in educational outcomes and developing the uniqueness of their identity.
With high levels of staff retention and a progressive increase in the leadership capacity, Stellar Group is well placed to expand. New teachers will benefit from the supportive environment and experience provided by our master teachers. Diversity and knowledge, new ideas and best practices from leading institutions across will be immensely valuable to developing our students in happy and balanced lifelong learners. At Stellar, we strive to deliver the best to our students, and as such, we have visited the leading preschools based in Australia, Singapore, China and Taiwan to study their approaches to education, teaching methodologies, implementing the best of the best into our curriculum. Change is essential as we move into the next chapter.
As part of our social responsibility values, we established Stellar Student Services in March 2017, to assist teenagers in discovering their God-given passion and gifts. We hope to help them to identify their purpose in life and to assist in directing them to the right education institution where their talents can be well refined. We succeeded in developing many good relationships with local and international universities.
Lastly, we would like to thank the parents for believing and supporting Stellar Education throughout the years.

Daniel Loh Han Yen, the founder of Stellar Education, has a dream of founding an independent private International School which would cater for what he believes; that all students should have an opportunity to obtain a quality education. During his years of studying at Monash University, he began providing private tutoring to high school and university students. After years of coaching the students, he gained tremendous satisfaction in observing the transformation of his students, so he decided to pass up working at an Accounting firm and to instead serve the students of Sunway College as an Accounting lecturer after receiving his CPA and Master degree in Melbourne, Australia.
He recognised a great need for having a good education system in a school to support students in all aspects, especially for those who are not able to perform well academically. Using his insight and experience as a private tutor of higher level education in both Malaysia and Australia, he resolved to establish a private institution in Johor Bahru offering Primary and Secondary education starting with a vision to provide quality education for the community in the year 2013.
Through years of firsthand interactions and observation, he recognised that students’ behaviours, moral values and beliefs were better imparted at younger ages. Consequently, he established Stellar Preschool in 2016 with the support of his mentor Dato’ Peter Ng, the founder of UCSI Group.
With an affinity for the role of nature in cognitive performance, Daniel with the help of Dr. Lemuel (who is known internationally as “The Farming Doctor” of FOLO Farm) designed a 5-senses Edible Garden for Stellar Preschool. This links education with the importance of a healthy lifestyle; that a balance needs to exist between our daily consumption, and to responsibly giving back to nature through recycling and composting, an appreciation of our connection and responsibility to the next generation.
At Stellar, we welcome all students whose parents identify with our values and recognise the benefits their children will gain from our educational programme.
STELLAR PRESCHOOL is an English medium pre-school in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. We offer a refreshing holistic and innovative approach to education for children ages 3 to 6. Stellar Prechool is a student-focused educational institution that provides the curriculum and methodology that reflects the best in global educational research and practice supportive learning community that challenges our students to achieve personal excellence and to develop as confident, caring, life-long learners positively engaged in the world.
Our curriculum aligns pre-school programme goals and practices with families’ expectations of educational excellence, helping young learners grow into persistent and confident students. Our school is designed with a pleasant and conducive learning environment to provide the children a head-start in academic excellence and overall development to prepare students a good foundation for National, Private and International Schools.
We adopt an integrative learning approach using various child-focused themes, projects and activities which are tailored to the needs of children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. In addition, through creative teaching practices, purposefully-designed learning environments and enriched activities to ensure students have joyful and meaningful learning experiences that leads to success in education and in life.
To build a nationally recognized school that commits to the holistic development of children and to inspire curiosity, independence and a life- long love of learning to help children become contributing members of our community and the world.
- Providing a balanced academic experience to help our children to be ready for primary education.
- Creating an environment to empower and inspire our children to reach his or her full cognitive, intellectual, creative, spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical abilities.
- Acknowledging and respect the individual needs of children; fostering a caring environment.
Studies have shown that the early years shape a child’s future. Being a father myself, I strongly believe that we should ‘train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it’. The education and happiness of a child should go hand in hand. This is the same assurance that Stellar Preschool is built upon – we will prioritise the education and happiness of your children. At Stellar Preschool, childhoods are enjoyed and leaders are moulded.
We want the best for our children and we truly believe that there is no better gift we can provide them other than quality education. There have been many changes these years and we hope to make more changes in the future for the benefit of children. The way people taught students in the past simply does not prepare them for the higher demands of college and careers today and in the future. The schools throughout the country are working to improve teaching and learning to ensure that all children will graduate high school with the skills they need to be successful.
We certainly take pride on learning each child’s individual strengths as I strongly believe that is something important to start of with. We also work very closely with each family, forming the important connection between parent, child and the school. This actually helps us further uncover each child’s uniqueness and hidden potential talents. Hence, they should be given the best and most appropriate rich experiences from young to be brought into their adult life in order for them to contribute to the society in a healthy way.
We are always looking to improve and the result is an increasing number of exciting, interesting, stimulating, enriching and practical learning opportunities which means that every child finishes a school year having learnt and experienced so much. There is a saying that goes ‘alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much’ is quote above best describe the passionate teachers in Stellar Preschool that has a spirit of passion, perseverance and commitment to provide the finest learning environment for Stellar children. I am truly honoured to lead such an amazing team.
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone for the continued support throughout these years. Thank you for entrusting us to shape the future of your children.

We believe that it is vital for parental involvement towards children’s development. Therefore we have created our YouTube channel this year so parents are aware of what is happening and what have their children learnt in the school. We have achieved a total of 8,000 views this year for our videos, and we hope that some of the ideas could be implemented at home or even other preschools, so more children could be benefited from it. Please subscribe and share our channel with your family and friends!
