Our Journey So Far

PPIS Child Development Centres

1983

When PPIS first opened its doors as a kindergarten back in 1983, the founders had a simple goal of providing quality education.

1993 & 2003

PPIS opened its first few Childcare Centres at Pasir Ris and Sembawang.

2010

The last PPIS Kindergarten at Bukit Batok was finally converted into a Childcare Centre in 2010. The PPIS brand became synonymous with Malay-Muslim parents and is one of the go-to brands for their children’s pre-school needs.

2016

PPIS took an important step to professionalise its ECE department by forming a company called 7oaks to oversee its entire operations and growth. Without compromising its social mission, it grew in both capacity and the number of families it assisted. PPIS also was appointed as a Partner Operator by ECDA.

Today

On the back of 37 years of history, 7oaks operates seven childcare centres with a total enrolment of more than 800 children, providing full-day infant and childcare services for children aged from 2 months to 6 years old. All seven centres are also SPARK accredited and awarded the highest tier of licensing tenure.

PPIS Student Care Centres

1989

Tracing our Student Care Centres’ humble beginnings back to 1989, PPIS first offered the Before and After School Care (BASC) service as part of the PPIS Single Parent Family Service Centre at Ubi. This was driven by the need to address the number of latchkey children among our Malay/Muslim community.

1995

Our student care was first introduced in Jurong West as a programme within the YWMA-Mendaki Family Service Centre in 1995, catering only to the children of the centre’s clients.

1998

Our BASC service at Ubi then moved to Eunos and doubled in capacity to 60 children. In addition, the service was extended to dual-working parents before relocating to our current premises at Bedok Reservoir in 2002 upon the invitation of MCYS (now MSF).

2009

Our YWMA-Mendaki Family Service Centre at Jurong is fully converted into a Student Care Centre. With the transformation, the centre took on a new name – PPIS Student Care Centre Jurong.

Today

Our Student Care centres expanded its core programmes with the same focus on holistic development. An Academic Coaching programme was introduced to strengthen Math, Science and literacy foundation across all age groups. Till date, enrolment at both student care centres have grown to 164 children.

Our Next Journey

Building upon the brand promise that PPIS has built over the years, we are now taking the opportunity to develop our childcare and student care brands to better reflect our corporate entity.

7oaks Pte Ltd is the entity that has been managing our Childcare Centres since 2016, and Student Care Centres since 2019. Hence, this marks the next phase in our journey and a new opportunity for our Childcare and Student Care to transform, adapt and advance.

The New Logo and Identity

7oaks Preschool’s and 7oaks Student Care’s new logo and visual identity, are inspired by our core principle to bring out the best in every child, regardless of their starting point.

As every child matters to us, we aspire to develop children of character, integrity and resilience, who will go on to embrace lifelong learning.

The new logo is also inspired by our teaching and non-teaching staff, who wish to make a difference in the lives of each child whom they lead, care and inspire. Our hope is for each child to grow up to be his or her best.

Combining our core principles and spirit of camaraderie has led to the development of a multi-coloured logo – one that personify our staff’s personalities, their passion to work with children and their aspirations to make a difference in the children’s lives.

In the Pipeline

Beyond the changes to our Childcare’s and Student Care’s name and logo, we will also be launching a new brand marketing campaign, new social media pages, and a comprehensive website.

New Look, Same Commitment

Behind the new look are the same Infant Care, Childcare and Student Care teams, dedicated to providing you the best possible care and education for your child.

We are thankful for our past and current customers, partners and stakeholders who have accompanied us in our journey. We owe this rebrand to all of you!
