What if we tell you that beyond having a high-level of proficiency in English, Primary school students will need to write, read and comprehend a wide range of texts to excel in the examinations?
In Singapore, English is the primary language of instruction and is one of the main lingua franca of the Internet, world trade, and the increasingly technologically-driven world. In line with the new MOE English Language Syllabus 2020, NASCANS recognises how literacy has been influenced by social, cultural and technological changes and incorporates multiliteracies in its English language programmes.
To excel in the English language, Primary school students must equip themselves with essential strategies and techniques in the years leading up to the PSLE examination. At NASCANS, our English enrichment is a structured, systematic and student-centric programme that is aligned to the syllabus set by Singapore’s Ministry of Education.
Developed by in-house English experts, the programme infuse grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing to build a robust foundation for Primary 1 to Primary 6 students, and help them tackle the main examination components in the English language examinations.
Our English Programme covers the two main components of the English paper (75%):

My daughter has been with them for 3years and she is being cared for and taught well. I feel that I am being treated as a family with them!
Mr Yeo came across as a firm yet encouraging teacher to my child. He gives constructive feedback and set reasonable discipline measures when needed. This is important and highly recommended. Ms Angie, is a friendly and approachable lady. She is very responsive and ensures that parents are updated promptly on the schedule. Professional customer service at NASCANS!
We are very happy to have made the right choice by placing our child at NASCANS Gambas after school hours. As working parents, we feel very assured to know that our child has been well looked after in terms of his meals, his homework/revision and his well being. We also appreciate that they constantly update us on any matters concerning our child. I will definitely recommend NASCANS to other parents who are looking for a reliable student care!
My daughters love Nascans @ Gambas and the centre-In-charge, Ms Serene, Teachers & centre Aunty are very patient & kind. Ms Serene also keeps us updated regularly on our child’s progress. Above all, she will work to find solutions for whatever challenges we face along our kids’ growing up journey. We are thankful because NASCANS is a partner we can trust to nurture our kids together! Thank you Ms Serene and Ms Sharmine for their patience and guidance to ease the kids into the P1 routines. From school work, school bus, and guiding them with their homework . It frees up our evening to have quality family time after a long day @ work! Kids are also served healthy lunches & tea break in school! A great relief for working parents like us! Thank you to the two lovely aunties for being a loving chef & kept the premises clean and safe for our little ones! Would I recommend NASCANS? For sure I will!
I am a mother of three children and all of my children have had the wonderful benefit of attending NASCANS after school care. The teachers at this centre carry out their responsibilities in caring, nurturing, and educating the children to a standard of excellence that I feel would not be easily found within the student care industry. Children are treated with kindness and respect and each child is made to feel valued and important. As a parent, I have always found the lines of communication between the teachers and myself open at all times. Each day, we hear stories from our children about the fun adventures and learning that they have experienced; reinforced by the photographs (during outings and events) and stories that their teachers share with us. My children has gained so much confidence through their experience at NASCANS!
"I am very impressed with the facilities and curriculum on my first visit there. Besides coaching children with their homework, the student care also provides additional coverage for students to complete assessment books and past year examinations papers. Hence, I don't have to worry about my child's homework nor send them for tuition and can leave it all to them. During the holidays, the student care would also organise outings for movies, skating, cooking, visit to the Science Centre, Kids Amaze and more to keep children entertained and happy. My children also shared that they like attending the student care as they get to make friends, study and play with their friends. They look forward to football sessions every Thursday! The student care has far exceeded my expectations and hence I've enrolled my youngest child for this student care even though his primary school now has an in-house student care."
