Services & Features
TYPES OF SERVICES
We provide full-day and half-day childcare and education services for children from 18 months to 6 years old.
HEALTHY & NUTRITIOUS MEALS
Our centre has achieved the “Healthy Eating Award” under the Health Promotion Board’s Healthy Eating in Childcare Centres Programme. We provide balanced and nutritious meals for breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. Meals at the Centre are prepared in accordance with the regulations and recommendations of the Ministry of Health.
PROGRESS REPORT & PORTFOLIO REPORT
Our unique Portfolio Assessment equips the teachers to assess your child’s development, needs and strengths through observation and analysis of the child’s work and developmental responses. The written comments, interpretation, and assessments will be recorded in the Progress Report and Portfolio report so as to enable both teachers & parents to understand the child’s development and provide age-appropriate intervention.
Parental involvement is encouraged as it supports children’s growth and development as well as contributes towards positive home-centre relations. Close rapport amongst parents, children and teachers are encouraged. We believe that informal discussions on a child’s development, progress and problems between parents and teachers hold the key to staff-parent rapport. As teachers in the Centre and parents at home are the primary element of a child’s progress, we therefore hope to work hand-in-hand with the parents in the care and education of their children.
Parental talks, Parents-Teacher Meetings, parental involvement events such as Mid Autumn Festival and Chinese New Year are held regularly for effective means of communication between the home and the centre.
PARENTS & TEACHERS CONFERENCE/ MEETING
The centre will organize Parent-Teacher Conferences in June & December yearly to allow discussion and feedback sessions with the parent on the progress of the child. Both parents are strongly encouraged to attend.
PARENTS & TEACHERS COMMUNICATION
The Centre also practices verbal and written feedbacks continuously from time to time while your child is in our care. Parents can feel free to enquire from our teachers about your child’s progress.
The centre is fully air-conditioned with good ventilation and air-quality is maintained through air-filter system and daily disinfecting of the environment.
Our staff ensure that children are supervised at all times, and that no child leaves the centre with any unauthorized person. Evacuation and emergency procedures are conducted regularly to ensure that all staff and children are familiar with these procedures. All chemicals, detergents and medicines are kept out of reach from children.
Children enjoy clean, warm and refreshing showers daily.
Professional Swimming Course
Swimming is not just a good form of exercise; it provides the child with lifetime safety and endless fun in water and boosts their confidence.
