Hello Mummies,

My husband and I are full time working staff and we have a 3 years old(2012 June 2) with mild ASD.
We are wondering is there a childcare in Singapore that runs a EIPIC programme thing under the same campus.

Eg. after my child attend the 2 hours EIPIC programme, he can join the childcare sector.

It's pretty hassle to drop him at the EIPIC centre at 10am and pick him up at 12 and drop him at home or the childcare.
so was wondering is there such a centre in Singapore =(
much preferred near the Great World City as we are both working nearby. (husband working at holiday inn hotel)

or any recommendation of childcare nearby to recommend?
My friend told me there's a childcare starting this year at Furama Riverfront Hotel, anybody know of such news?

Please advise and help =(

There are Integrated Child Care Programme (ICCP) which caters for children with special needs as well as normal kids, but have not come across an EIPIC childcare.
Here is a list of ICCP

Hi Scang,
thank you so much! However the ratio of the children are pretty high at PCFs etc so i wanted to enrol into a private centre.
I do not want the teacher to just leave my son at one corner :(
and i still we have to pick him up to bring to the EIPIC centre.

however my husband and I will be considering this as one option for us.
If the teacher is special need trained. But weighing the focus and attention, i guess its not much and wont be expecting much :(

Everyone has different ways of learning. For Boosting your child's brainpower.
I highly recommend an enrichment program that is credited where they can improve and enhance memory learning.
Where they teach advanced and fun techniques that our kids can enjoy at the same time will carry our children forward in their primary school years.

Hello parents,

My name is Gwen. I used to assist in Occupational Therapy sessions for special needs children.

I am an advocate for physical-based activities as it:
⁃ improves one’s concentration and memory
⁃ improves one’s health and well-being
⁃ provides greater confidence
⁃ improves one’s gross (e.g. throwing ball, cycling) and fine motor skills (e.g. tying shoe lace, opening bottle can, buttoning shirt)

Each session is a flat rate of $35/hr.

Duration (once/ twice weekly and 1hr/ 1.5hrs per session) and content of sessions are customised accordingly, depending on your goal:
⁃ Functional life skills activity (e.g. crossing road, counting money and buying things, folding clothes)
⁃ Indoor fun activity (e.g. games, play dough, mini obstacles at home)
⁃ Pre-writing/ education (eg primary school math/science/chinese)

I always believe a child is able to better focus/ regulate with sufficient physical activities. Same goes for Adult.

PM or email me at for discussion and i can provide more information (eg past experiences and future plans). Let’s work together and help your child achieve greater heights!

*Disclaimer: I do not provide initial assessment/ evaluation, physical activities might cause little abrasion (which can help a child to grow stronger) :)

The key component to achieving various goals is keeping the sessions and activities fun and “child-directed” if possible. This means I allow the child to pick what we do but I manipulate it into being therapeutic and to work on the goals I have set for the child. This way, it is always motivating, and the child does not realise that they are doing “work.” When working at home, I encourage you to be playful and imaginative with the activities, this will yield the best results.
