Schools in Our Neighbourhood

The Hougang Student Care Centre is located at the void desk of Blk 665, Hougang Ave 4, #01-365. It is within walking distance from Xin Min Primary School.  We serve the families of this neighbourhood whose children attend nearby schools e.g. Xin Min Primary School, Hougang Primary School and Yio Chu Kang Primary School.

Looking after your children

We strive to provide quality student care service in this community with focus on the total development of the child by partnering with parents on the important task of bringing up children.  We provide a safe and congenial “home” environment for children whilst their parents are busy at the workplace. 

Our dedicated teachers ensure that the children in our centre complete their school homework and place high priority to supervise them in this area.  After completion of daily homework, the children are given assessment workbooks for practice with close guidance from the teachers..

There are children who may face learning difficulties or display behavioural challenges.  Our teachers will usually work with their parents and help them overcome their difficulties.

Holiday Activity Highlights

Our children are usually excited to spend their school holidays at the centre.  They look forward to interesting educational trips such as the Donut Factory where they learn how to bake donuts and create their own designs on them. 

Visits to Health Promotion Board & Civil Defence Heritage Gallery are equally invigorating for them.

 

 For December holidays, our highlight is the Mini-fun Mart where students in the class plan their own games and set up games stalls/booths for our centre’s children, parents and the neighbours to enjoy the fun.  This involves active participation of the students and helps to develop social/community integration.

Enrichment programmes such as Phonetics, Dancing & Cooking classes will also be organized during the holidays. Check out our photo gallery to see the happy children in action!  

Our Volunteers & Sponsors

We have regular volunteers who have committed their time to nurture children in the centre.

Exercise is the best way to keep fit.  Children enjoy our in-house Soccer Competition jointly organized with our volunteers. 

Aunty Mary visits our Centre once a month and teaches our children character-building and life skills.
