ABOUT THE CHILDCARE CENTRE

The Centre provides quality childcare service to children aged 18 months to 6 years. The Centre is open to the general public. It is well-equipped with facilities that provide a conducive learning environment for children to learn, play and grow. The classrooms and music room are fully air-conditioned. There is a spacious playground with climbing bars, slide, an area for safe-cycling and a soccer court for ballgames and other outdoor play activities.

Our staff are carefully screened and selected to ensure that they are qualified and experienced, committed and caring and have special interest and love for children. All our class teachers have a diploma in early childhood education and have many years experience working with preschoolers. We closely monitor and allow each child to progress at his or her own pace. It is also our desire to build positive relationships with parents so that a working partnership can further support the holistic development of your child.
