“Since 2016, I have not regretted my decision. We are really happy with our children’s development and their social well-being in the student care centre. We need to put our mind at ease while at work, and having them in the SCC has really helped us.

The teachers and admin staff are really easy to work with; responsive and has built the trust among parents.

My children even look forward to attend during the holidays. The programmes that the SCC come up with really excite the children and they can learn something from it. I wish Whee!Canopus will always prosper and continue to provide excellent SCC services!"

“It is very good that MERCU introduced the “Artists” series during the last June holidays. We were pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of the holiday
programme as it provides the children with general knowledge about the great artists. My children enjoyed the holiday programme and as parents, we are very appreciative of the effort put into the programme. Thank you & well done, Whee!Canopus.”

  • 1. Who is eligible to apply for the Student Care Centre (SCC) programme?
    To add a new Student Care Centre only accepts students from the same primary school.
  • 2. Are there any subsidy schemes available?
    Student Care Financial Assistance (SCFA) subsidy from Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) is available to those who meet the criteria. Applicants applying for SCFA must fulfil the following eligibility criteria: The child is a Singapore Citizen. If the child is a permanent resident of Singapore (PR), at least one immediate family member (parent or sibling) is a Singapore Citizen. The child is between 7 to 14 years old and attends a student care centre which administers SCFA. The family’s gross monthly household income is $4,000 or lower. Both the child’s parents must be working. The child must attend at least 50% of the days in which the student care centre operates in the month in order to be eligible for SCFA subsidy for the month. Failing which, full month fee is payable as MSF will disqualify the child from receiving subsidy for that month.
