An Oasis Between School and Home
“For high-quality student care, look no further than
NASCANS’ island-wide student care centres.”
NASCANS is a market leader in student care in Singapore, with 23 school-based student care centres (plus 2 new centres opening in January 2021) and 5 community-based centres located conveniently across the island. Established in 2006, NASCANS is well known for its holistic student care programmes that set it apart from other student care centres in Singapore.
NASCANS’ in-house R & D team has developed a unique holistic curriculum framework with an aim to let each child have a well-rounded development with critical thinking skills and character development. Their teaching pedagogy is set in accordance with MOE’s 21st Century Competencies model as well as attuned to the partner school’s vision, mission and values, so as to complement the child’s learning at school.
NASCANS acknowledges that each child is different, has different learning capabilities and different intelligences with one dominant intelligence that needs to be identied and honed. With this belief at the heart of what they deliver, NASCANS assesses each student through the MI 27 Proling and MI Detailed Assessment to identify a child’s strengths and areas for improvement. This “Unique Multiple Intelligences Approach” prepares the groundwork for teachers to help the child maximize his/ her potential.
NASCANS provides a safe and rejuvenating oasis for children after a long day at school and before they head home.
At NASCANS, the children are greeted into a friendly, nurturing environment with safe spaces to unwind and relax. The passionate and energetic teachers at NASCANS ensure that the lessons are fun and interactive so children enjoy the process of learning. They go a step beyond homework supervision by providing small-group tutorials to improve the child’s academic performance.
At NASCANS’ community-based centres, there are opportunities for children to play indoor games such as table football, basketball, dart board, and board games. At their school-based centres, children use the partner school’s facilities for outdoor play and recreation. A structured timetable and designated spaces for learning allows children to complete their work independently, so they are well prepared for school.
With nutritious meals prepared by in-house cooks, funfilled outdoor activities and exciting enrichment programmes -both in the regular schedule as well as in the holiday programmes, students get an opportunity to grow holistically at NASCANS. Parents recommend NASCANS student care centres highly for their holistic curriculum, excellent student care, high safety and hygiene standards and effective communication.
NASCANS community-based centres are located at Bukit Merah, Choa Chu Kang, Clementi, Gambas and Jurong East. For the full list of their school-based student care centres, visit here.
