PLEASE NOTE THAT TANDERRA IS NOW CLOSED AND HAD CEASED OPERATION FROM JANUARY 2017.
Tanderra is the family club that doesn’t cost tens of thousands of dollars to join but has all the great benefits and facilities that a club has to offer with an added emphasis on your children.
Beautifully located within the greenery of Dempsey Hill, the colonial inspired retreat boasts a playground, pool, spa, cafe, activities like art, cooking and wellness/fitness classes along with their Play Ateliers for children. It is the Play Ateliers that set Tanderra apart from your usual Clubs.
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, founder and owner of Tanderra, Barbara Deay has been a 13 year veteran of Early Years Education. When asked why Tanderra, she responded,
“many friends with children had commented over the years how great it would be if there was one place where they could go and there would be something for the whole family to do, rather than spending time traveling all over Singapore for various classes and activities. But more importantly, I wanted it to be a ‘home away from home’, where families could come and simply be. Tanderra is a place where people can do everything and nothing, a place of true respite where everyone feels contented and relaxed.”
True to her background, Barbara has created beautiful spaces where children can come, play and learn while their parents take a break. The two Play Ateliers are divided into the Family Atelier where families can stay and play with their children and an Art Atelier which offers a wider range of artistic experiences for the whole family. Children aged 6 months to 8 years can be dropped off at these gorgeous spaces where children can learn and explore while being supervised by trained staff. Barb has always firmly believed that children and adults learn best through active exploration.

What Barbara loves most about her club?
“The amazing community we have created. It is wonderful to see families connecting and forging life-long relationships as they take part in sessions and relax and enjoy the Tanderra facilities. I love walking around the club, chatting with members, playing with children in the playground, and feeling a true sense of kinship and belonging.”
