Before we close the year, it’s worth looking back at the top picks for the 2019 SC Babies and Kids’ Awards, SC Enrichment Awards, and SC Preschool Awards. What made mums choose these winners? Find out below!
The baby feeding product brand has been a top choice in the SC Babies and Kids’ Awards since 2018. This year, it landed the honor of being the “Most Innovative Baby Feeding System.” The award recognises Hegen’s revolutionary products for a seamless breastfeeding experience, where less products mean more time and resources saved.
Hegen offers a whole suite of breastfeeding products that help mums express, store, and feed milk to their babies. Mummies have been delighted to know that these three processes all involve a single container—by switching the lids from breast pump, to a storage lid, to an ergonomically-designed teat that mimics the breast for a more natural feeding. This means no wastage of breastmilk, easy cleaning, and efficient feeding!

This year, Heguru was lauded as the SC Enrichment Awards’ “Best Programme for Right Brain Development.” The centre originated in Japan and has since been a hit for mums in Singapore not only for its effective curriculum and teaching methods, but ultimately for unleashing children’s potential and helping them learn better. What’s more, you can even start enrolling your infant or toddler to Heguru!
It is the right side of the brain, largely known as the creative side, that develops first as children grow. The key is to nurture the functions of the right brain—such as photographic memory, spatial recognition, and rhythm processing—so that it can complement the left brain functions including analytical, rational, and comprehension skills. Imagine the opportunities this opens for children!

Little Tree House
Earning a three-peat this year is Little Tree House, which bagged the SC Preschool Awards’ “Best in Project-Based Learning.” The centre has been providing early childhood education for 16 years and counting, with locations in Hougang, Sembawang, Westwood, and Pasir Ris. It nurtures infants and children up to six years old.
Parents have trusted Little Tree House for its inclusive approach to learning, covering both academic and character development. Through project-based learning, children learn not only with their minds but with all their senses, making concepts more concrete and comprehension more experiential and fun. The centre also puts importance on making sure children develop healthy eating habits to be truly successful in life, and as such it is accredited under the Healthy Meals in Preschools Programme of the Health Promotion Board of Singapore.
