Singapore’s only infant and childcare centre co-located in a nursing home. Our intergenerational learning centre in Jurong West focuses on experiential learning and the formation of important values such as love and respect.

Infant and Childcare Centre

At St Joseph’s Home Infant & Childcare Centre, we respect the needs of each child and understand that each child is a gift from God.

Our vision is to provide holistic education that build character and confidence. Our belief is that the heart of education is the same as the heart of care. Person-centred, and cultivated with love and compassion.

The first of its kind in Jurong West, our infant and childcare service offers your child all the benefits of regular infant / childcare plus additional interaction time with Aunty Wong and Grandpa Fernandez.

Thank you for providing a friendly atmosphere for our child to learn and grow. All the teachers are respectful, caring and fun-loving, especially teacher Mercy.

Heartfelt thanks to Teacher Mercy for her patience and understanding in guiding Feanne this past year. Feanne can be quite temperamental at times, but under Teacher Mercy’s guidance, Feanne has matured much in life. God bless Teacher Mercy and all at St Joseph’s Home Infant and Childcare.Monteiro Gennalyn Delapa, Mother of Feanne

Intergenerational Experience @ Jurong West

Nestled within a nursing home and hospice, at Jurong West, our children experience a unique and integrative inter-generational curriculum. Children learn about the world, language, numeracy, arts, nature through experiential play and with multi-generations.

This intergenerational experience at Jurong West extends to:
Infant Care (2-18 Months)
Pre-Nursery (18-30 Months)
Nursery (30 Months – 4 Years Old)
Kindergarten (5-6 Years Old)

Take a look at the first run of Esplanade’s Sing Out Loud! Project held in an intergenerational setting within St Joseph’s Home. Our St Joseph’s Home Infant and Childcare Centre children and residents from St Joseph’s Home’s spent six weeks together from March to May 2023. Thereafter, they put on a private finale showcase at the Esplanade – Theatres by the Bay for invited guests.

Six Learning Domains

We focus on six learning domains. Each domain contributes to the holistic development of every child. They are:
1) Aesthetics and Creative Expression
2) Discovery of the World
3) Language and Literacy
4) Motor Skills Development
5) Numeracy
6) Social and Emotional Development

Our Jurong West centre offers outdoor learning spaces that encourage daily exploration and discovery. Aside from expansive walkways and a big garden, we have our very own chicken coop and bird aviary.
