Life Student Centre | Yishun
Our Yishun Student Care Centre is located at the void deck of Blk 611 Yishun St 61, within walking distance of Khatib MRT station. We serve the families of this neighbourhood, whose children attend nearby schools eg Northland Primary, Peiying Primary, Naval Base Primary etc.
We provide a safe and congenial “home” environment for children while their parents are at work. Our teachers place high priority in guiding the children to complete their school homework through disciplined supervised study time. After completing their school work, the children are given assessment workbooks or practice worksheets for more practice which is closely monitored by the centre’s teachers.
We also care for the children’s total well-being. There are weekly outdoor playground time, as well as indoor games and crafts sessions to stimulate their physical, social and creative development. For character-building, the children are taught good values and attitude through songs and stories.
There are children who may face learning difficulties or display behavioural challenges. Our teachers will usually work with their parents and help them overcome their difficulties.
We have regular volunteers who have committed their time to nurture children in the centre.
Aunty Cheng Suan and Aunty Alice of Yishun Methodist Mission teach the children about the attributes of “Love”, student volunteers from St Nicholas Girls and Nanyang Girls High conduct reading sessions with children who are weak in English and Uncle Aster gives free Math tuition to a boy from a needy family.
With the generosity and technical expertise of Johnson & Johnson AP IT department, the children get their very own Computer Lab to do online homework and a projector for interactive lessons through PowerPoint presentations during the school holidays.
