Educational Support Programme
partnered with Chua Foundation
Since 2003, we have integrated ChildCare Programme (ICCP) that provides a natural environment for children with special needs to learn, play, socialise and grow alongside with regular peers. It prepares them for entry into primary school later. This programme is offered at 5 of our 11 centres catering up to 50 children in total.
Moving forward, we will transform this programme to Educational Support Programme (ESP) and will be provided in our 11 centres.
