Skool4Kidz marks another significant milestone by having 2 of its child care centres (Marsiling Drive and Woodlands Ring Road) successfully certified under SPARK – the Singapore Pre-school Accreditation Framework. The national preschool accreditation by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) assesses the quality of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Health, Hygiene & Safety of Singapore’s preschools.
SPARK is an important guide for parents seeking good quality child care services in Singapore for their children and this achievement exemplifies the quality of the 2 Skool4Kidz centres. In fact, Skool4Kidz at Woodlands Ring Road over exceeded expectations by achieving the SPARK Certification with Commendation – which specially recognises preschools with strong teaching and learning practices. With only 5% of Singapore preschools achieving it, the Commendation is a testament of the effectiveness of Skool4Kidz’ Integrated Thematic Curriculum and its conducive learning environment that enables a child to be developed holistically.
Beyond the accreditation, the SPARK experience has motivated the Skool4Kidz team to improve, as well as equipped them with the know-how to further enhance the quality of all centres. The Cluster Head of the two SPARK-certified centres, Ms Christina Pardiwalla said: “For my team and I, the SPARK journey has been very meaningful and rewarding. We are actually “SPARK-ed” to continue learning and improving, for learning is not an event, but a process. Indeed, for us the result was not the most important, rather what mattered most was what we have learnt through the whole SPARK journey. Achieving the certification was just a cherry on top!”
