In early 2014, EtonHouse was selected by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) in Singapore to be part of the Anchor Operator (AOP) Scheme to launch E-Bridge Pre-School under the scheme, providing high quality and affordable early childhood services for Singaporean families. This is the first time the Government is opening up the AOP scheme to private providers and EtonHouse was selected from several others who applied to be a part of the scheme. Anchor operators were selected based on track record and how they demonstrated commitment and ability to meet the demand for early childhood services, offer good quality and affordable programme, expand outreach to low income families, and provide sector leadership in manpower development.
