Metta PreSchool @Punggol (慈光幼儿园) has been in operation since its official opening on 31 July 2010. The centre receives cases from SG Enable through referrals from hospitals. Enrolment will take place after the initial screening process is complete. Our centre specializes in early intervention programme for children under two to six years old from various races and religions who are diagnosed with mild to severe autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and/or intellectual disabilities. Early intervention can help maximize the potential development of the infants and children.
The children attend a 3-hour session programme twice a week. The multi-disciplinary team consists of teachers, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists. They come together to discuss and set specific and measurable 1-year goals for the Individualised Education Plan (IEP) of each child. The IEP focuses on 6 domains: fine motor, gross motor, adaptive, cognitive, social communication and social skills.
