“My husband Nelson and I are working full-time, and like any other parents we want to give our only child, Natalie, our best. When Natalie was 1 year old, we started searching for a childcare to take care of her, as our busy work schedules prevented us from keeping her at home. We wanted a preschool within walking distance of our house for convenience, and we visited eligible centres to understand their core values and check out their daily timetables, meal arrangements and cleanliness. We decided on New Life Childcare because the centre’s core values matched what we were looking for: caring for every child as a unique individual with talents to be developed, and imparting good values to strengthen children’s character development.
At 18 months old, Natalie joined New Life’s playgroup for toddlers. Although she had a rough first week, she was able to adapt to the new environment by the second week and eventually even quit her pacifier with help from the teachers. Natalie has been with New Life almost 2 years now. She really enjoys her playtime with classmates and the school programmes teaching arts, English, Mandarin and STEAM activities help her learn a lot. Besides academics, the teachers have trained Natalie to become more independent in her daily activities, such as eating by herself and potty training.
We really appreciate the teachers and staff in New Life Childcare for all their effort, kindness and patience in nurturing Natalie. Because of their help, we can focus on our work knowing that Natalie is in a loving and safe environment during our working hours. We would definitely recommend New Life Childcare to parents seeking a supportive and enriching environment for their children!”

“As parents working full-time, we are thankful to have chosen New Life Childcare for our girls’ preschool education journey. We really like the conducive environment of the Bukit Panjang centre which has a good balance of play and learning. The teachers and staff from New Life are amazing, well loved by the kids and very approachable when we parents have any queries.
My girls are blessed with very attentive and observant teachers. One of the teachers recommended my elder daughter to enrol in New Life’s Steady Readers programme to improve her English. She has since improved greatly and developed a strong interest in and confidence with the English language. My younger daughter’s teacher also spotted and brought to our attention that she had a long-sightedness eye condition which we had not discovered.
On top of the regular play and learning, New Life’s strong focus on values and character-building are what we truly appreciate for our children! Thank you, New Life!”
– Shu Min, mother of Amelia Goh (Bukit Panjang)
“We are very thankful that Michael was able to attend New Life Childcare from N2 to K2. We see our acceptance by New Life Childcare as God’s gracious provision for our family in our difficult situation.
Michael was attending another childcare centre from toddler to N1. Due to his behaviours, he required a lot of attention, patience & perseverance. We searched high and low for another preschool in Bukit Panjang area, but none was available.
When I first called New Life Childcare, I was very encouraged by their warmth and acceptance. We were so grateful that New Life Childcare was willing to accept us knowing the background of our challenges. The first year after we transferred over to New Life was not easy. Michael’s behaviour caused much difficulty for his teachers. However, the principal, Ms Elaine, met with us face-to-face to discuss strategies we could adopt in tandem with the teachers to help Michael. I am also thankful for his teachers’ support: Teacher Sarah’s gentleness and loving care, Lin Lao Shi’s positive and resilient energy, Teacher Rebecca being very understanding and supportive. Never once have we felt that the school has given up on Michael.
To our delight, we gradually saw improvement in Michael’s behaviour as he settled into the school. He has become more conscientious and less aggressive. He is able to use words to communicate better, and is more willing to follow rules. The best part for us is seeing biblical values imparted to him through songs, prayers, Christmas events, and the lives of the persevering teachers.
New Life Childcare has demonstrated big-heartedness and resilience in accepting and integrating a child and family who genuinely needs childcare support. To us ordinary working parents, this is of greater value than academic excellence, fanciful programs and brand prestige. A big Thank You to all the teachers and staff in New Life Childcare! We are grateful for what you do.”
– Steffenie Liu, mother of Michael
“At first, we were hesitant to change schools for Elisha. She had just turned two and was already very attached to her previous teachers. Despite New Life being right next to our place, it wasn’t on our shortlist as we couldn’t find much info nor reviews online. One year in and we couldn’t be happier we took that leap!
The experience has been a wonderful one since Day 1. Principal Nathania patiently addressed our multitude of concerns during the first meeting and continues to be readily available for communication and support.
Since attending New Life we have seen many improvements in Elisha. She now barely ever gets into emotional tantrums at home and even tells us about “self-control” – a word she has learnt in school that we had never previously used. She initiates to pack up her things, wants to wash her own bowl and even helps with the household chores! This is all to the credit of the wonderful teachers at the school, namely Teacher Fel and Han Laoshi.
Teacher Fel and Han Laoshi are very professional – quick to respond and solution driven. They take the time to communicate in detail regarding any issues big or small. They are always happy to share with us tips on how to positively encourage Elisha at home. Not only are they patient and loving towards the children, they are also a source of knowledge, motivation and encouragement to us parents.
Our family has been truly blessed from the school’s positive and love-centered approach in childcare!”
– Grace Wu, mother of Elisha
“Since I enrolled my children in New Life Childcare, I observed that they are progressing very well and have picked up necessary skills to prepare them for primary school. They told me that their teachers are caring and loving.
I’m glad I’m able to focus on my work knowing that my children are in safe and nurturing hands.”
