Partner Operator Scheme

We are proud to be chosen as a Partner Operator with EDAC

ECDA PARTNER OPERATOR SCHEME (POP)


The Partner Operator (POP) scheme supports child care operators to keep fees affordable, build capabilities to raise quality, and improve career prospects for Early Childhood ("EC") professionals. The scheme commenced in 2016. Operators will receive funding to:

  • Reduce their current fees, keep to a monthly fee cap of $800 and $1,400 (excluding GST) for full-day child care and infant care respectively, and ensure any fee increases are kept affordable for parents.
  • Invest in improving quality through the Singapore Pre-school Accreditation Framework (SPARK), and in headquarter capabilities.
  • Support continuing professional development and career progression opportunities for EC professionals.
