E-Bridge opens Large Child Care Centre, first of its kind in Singapore
E-Bridge Large Child Care Centre (LCCC) at 78 Edgedale Plains held its official opening ceremony on 15 July 2016. Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister for Social and Family Development, was the distinguished guest of honour at the event. E-Bridge LCCC is the first mega child care centre being built by anchor operators in Singapore.
This centre occupies a land area of 5,000 square meters and built up area of 3,700 square meters. It has 30 classrooms and diverse facilities for young children, including a library, sensory areas and studios to explore light, technology and art. The building’s S-shape resembles a traditional ruyi, which has the meaning of “as one wishes”, and the 5 circular pods were set up to reflect the 5 Chinese elements Earth, Metal Water, Wood and Fire. It was nominated as one of the best designed schools in Asia by Little Steps Asia.
During the opening ceremony, EtonHouse Community Fund, an approved charity with the objective of supporting educational causes for children from underprivileged backgrounds, pledged $100,000 to the government initiative – KidStart scheme.
The charity carnival held last Friday at the centre was also highly successful. Proceeds went to EtonHouse Community Fund, and we are grateful for all the support. E-Bridge looks forward to providing quality education to children in the new Large Child Care Centre.
