Raffles Kidz @ Jurong West is our only centre in Singapore that offers full-day and half-day care programmes for infants and toddlers aged 2 to 18 months.
Quality infant care promotes long-term developmental growth and builds a strong foundation for children to thrive in school. Committed to providing the best head start for our children, our full-day and half-day infant care programmes focus on developing the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional skills of the infant in a safe and nurturing environment. Our infants are taken care of by professional and qualified educators with a personalised care program that is tailored to meet every infant’s preferences, routines and interests.
Safe & Nurturing Environment
We provide our infants and toddlers with a variety of thoughtfully curated spaces to play, explore and rest. With child-friendly shelves, tables and chairs, they can easily reach what they need and explore what interests them. Comfortable nooks are also available for them to have quiet and meaningful interactions with our educators.
In our dedicated gym area, we provide age-appropriate equipment for them to crawl through, climb on, jump off and pull up, providing opportunities to practice mobility and independence.
Personalized Care Programmes
Each child is unique. With our personalized care program, we have developed a daily schedule that is predictable yet flexible and responsive to the individual needs of our infants and toddlers. To bring a sense of comfort and safety to our children, routines and activities are planned in a similar fashion as their schedule at home and gradually modified to a consistent, group-oriented schedule as they achieve their developmental milestones.
Attentive & Qualified Educators
Our Holistic Infant Curriculum
Social, Physical & Cognitive Development
In a stimulating environment with multi-sensory experiences, our infants and toddlers go through a variety of activities that build a strong foundation for their growth and development during the early years. Motor skills are developed through repetitive actions and opportunities to explore interesting objects in their environment. Through physical experimentation, they learn using their senses which later support cognitive development. Our dedicated educators are also there every step of the way to provide purposeful interactions to build their social skills.
Language and Literacy Development
Early language and literacy skills are learned best through everyday moments. To develop important communication skills, our educators ensure meaningful interactions with our children and connect with each child by reading stories, singing songs, and teaching sign language to improve their literacy. Sign language helps infants to express basic emotions, wants and needs and is part of their curriculum to promote communication and reduce frustration.
Flexible & Consistent Schedule and Routine
At our centres, we aim to provide a schedule that is flexible but meets the needs of our children for routine and play. To explore each child’s interests, there is given time during the day to engage in open play and encourage them to be curious about the world around them. This is the time that children learn best and our educator’s role is to ensure each child is actively involved in self-learning and help them make the most out of these opportunities.
