The country’s first green child care centre is ready to kick off construction. Women’s Aid Organisation’s (WAO) new child care centre will be built by the youth division of Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (Rehda Youth) in collaboration with various partners.
“Our goal was to design a loving and nurturing home for children, one that would not feel like a shelter or crisis centre,” said Rehda Youth adviser and GreenRE director Teo Chui Ping during the groundbreaking ceremony for the centre on April 12.
“We used green design principles such as ensuring sufficient daylight and natural ventilation.This will create a comfortable living space for children.
We also designed a special child therapy room in the home,” she said.
