In September 2013, Little Footprints Schoolhouse won the inaugural joint tender by ECDA and HDB for two Commercial Child Care Centre sites at Punggol and Teban Gardens. The School recently had their official opening at Teban Gardens on the 9th of November, with Ms. Foo Mee Har, Member of Parliament for West Coast GRC as the Guest-of-Honour.

“With new housing projects in Singapore, there is a need to augment the supporting infrastructure available. We are heartened by the government initiatives and excited that Little Footprints has been selected to provide quality and affordable childcare services to families in the area.” Ms. Foo said.
With a focus on enriching children so that they become academically strong and ready for school, Little Footprints Schoolhouse provides an environment conducive for academic learning and bilingualism.
Classic titles and award winning children’s literature by well-known authors are specially selected to be introduced to the children as part of the school’s curriculum
Design and Space
Careful considerations have gone into the design and space planning of the centre. The school also provides the element of fun through programmes and facilities for water, sand and role play. There are designated indoor water play and sand play areas within the school’s air-conditioned premise.
Water and sand play areas are specially made to encourage multi-sensory learning
Use of Technology
Keeping up with the 21st century and a belief that children can benefit from learning through technology, children will have a chance to work with interactive whiteboards and floor projections.

It believes that every child deserves the best and committed to bring affordable premium programme to the heartlanders.
