Established in 2006, NASCANS is a leading student care and kindergarten care brand with over 20 locations in partner MOE schools and residential communities, providing students with “an oasis between school and home”. NASCANS has recently been awarded Singapore’s Top Brand for Student Care under the annual Influential Brands ® Award, and the award-winning programme helps children develop positive thinking habits, leadership skills and strength of character through structured and fun learning activities.
For our school-based centres, our student care programmes are closely aligned to MOE’s 21st Century Competencies model and the partner school’s vision, mission and values. For our community-based centres, our student care programmes also include value-added services such as small group tutorials for English/Chinese/Maths/Science to enhance our students’ academic performance in school.
Our mentors are experienced educators driven by a passion to educate and care for your child’s after-school needs so that parents don’t need to worry about their child’s physical and emotional well-being, homework completion or academics.

An Oasis between School and Home
To help each child develop critical and creative thinking skills, nurture leadership qualities and build strength of character through structured and fun activities.
We believe that every child should enjoy learning. We also believe that every child deserves to discover and develop their innate talents. Though the infusion of interactive elements into lessons, as well as plenty of encouragement and fun activities, we aim to make learning fun and meaningful. With this, we hope to awaken an unquenchable thirst for knowledge in our students that will accompany them well into their old age.
We believe that healthy, intelligent thinking helps children to solve problems better and be better-behaved. The inclusion of opportunities to encourage critical thinking in our programs and teaching children how to think creatively as a key component of lessons will help students to develop useful skills for the real world.
The strength of a student’s character is a strong determinant in the success of a child’s life, and we at NASCANS are aware of this vital fact. We thus hold this value close to our heart and take great effort integrating character education into our program.
We believe that every child has a powerful role to play in their community. Thus, raising children who are compassionate and able think for others is paramount to us. Inculcating this deep sense of responsibility and care begins in a child’s important formative years, and our emphasis on these traits in our program will help to form the basis for them to persist even as our students mature.
