Residential Care - Children's Wing
The Children Wing provides care and guidance to young residents who are between 6-12 years old. We strive to provide holistic development for our children, with programmes that are purposefully designed to help children develop cognitively, physically, socially and emotionally. We focus on life skills that enable them to handle challenges in life, to be self-aware, to build healthy relationships, to develop resilience and to work as a team.
Weekly activities such as biking and ice-skating are organised for the children during the extended June and December school holidays. The aim is to introduce them to a broad variety of sports and to inculcate a healthy lifestyle.
Knowing our Neighbourhood
Our children get to regularly enjoy authentic experiences of visiting wet markets, hawker centres and neighbourhood shops in the heartlands and learn first hand the going-ons in the neighbourhood. Staff seize every teachable moment to impart life-skills like making purchases at the food court or supermarket
Our children learn to respect each other’s diverse cultures through understanding the significance of celebrating major festivities such as Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Deepavali and Christmas.
Love for Reading
We believe in the importance of cultivating a love for reading and learning. Through our monthly library visits, we encourage our residents to read a variety of books – fiction, non-fiction and comics – and practice writing simple book reviews to summarise their thoughts.
T is for Teamwork
Team bonding activities are organised throughout the year, including workshops and wing bowling competitions to help build rapport and foster a closer bond amongst all. Children are taught to value their team mates and learn that by working together, they can achieve more.
We wrap up each year with our signature 2D1N camp organised for all children. In 2017, the camp took the children on a round island trip to Labrador Park, Mount Faber, and East Coast Park with a myriad of team activities and water sports. The adventure continued with a night walk along Orchard Road to marvel in the festive lights.
