As for those who are residing in Yishun, Skool4Kidz will be opening their very own mega childcare centre by the middle of this year.
The mega childcare centre measures 1,990 sq m over two storeys, which is approximately three times bigger as compared to your average child care centre.
Skool4Kidz will be located next to Block 415 along Yishun Avenue 11 and will be accommodating up to 300 students.
In terms of facilities, future students of Skool4Kidz are in for a wholesome and engaging environment too!
One of the facilities you can expect is the community garden as shown below – where your child can harvest vegetables and herbs for their meals in school!
Similar to a restaurant, a glass panel will separate the kitchen and its alfresco dining area, so your kids can see how their lunch is being prepared. This would certainly spark some curiosity amongst your young ones; who knows they might just be the next great chef!
Aside from those, there will be covered and outdoor play spaces, atelier, art studios in which your child can make use of recycled and natural materials to express themselves.
The estimated childcare fees per month at Skool4Kidz is $770 for toddlers, playgroup and nursery (age 18 months to 6-years-old), excluding other fees and expenses while the estimated infant care fees per month for children aged 2 to 17+ months is $1360.
