*Cherie Hearts @ Bedok Central is SPARK-certified
Welcome to Cherie Hearts @ Bedok Central.
The idea of setting up a childcare centre evolved from Branch Director Ms Yong’s interest in early childhood before the birth of her daughter. Her interest in this field had since continued to grow as she found great satisfaction in nurturing, taking care of, educating, and playing with her baby.
Conveniently located at Bedok Central, we strive to serve the community by providing high-quality childcare services to parents with young children residing in the east region of Singapore. Offering a safe and conducive environment for preschoolers aged 18 months to 6 years old, we pride ourselves on equipping children with critical 21st century skills that essentially help them adapt to a rapidly changing globalised world where demographics and technological advancements drive the future. The five key components in the SPIRAL Literacies Model™ enable today’s children to problem-solve, create, analyse, collaborate, communicate, and account responsibly.
Besides our core curriculum, the Centre also emphasises on creativity and instilling the love for reading in young children. By introducing a variety of approaches to help cultivate children’s reading habits, we believe it will contribute to their academic success at a later stage.
Our trained and dedicated team of educators ensure the provision of a safe and loving environment for our children. We take pride in ensuring that our staff are professionally trained in the respective fields and conduct both internal and external training sessions to equip themselves with current changes. We are passionate and dedicated in bringing out the best in our children. Taking pride in our children, works by them and pictures of their exciting learning journeys are displayed in the respective classrooms.
Ms Yong has a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Monash University, which enables her to implement proven and effective strategies for the Cherians to cultivate the love for learning. She also regularly provides professional development training for her team of educators to help them remain relevant in the EC industry.
Our Centre believes in parent partnership to ensure smoother transition between home and school. Such involvement would assist our children in developing a sense of security and belonging to the Centre.
Nutritious set meals are provided to ensure that each child consumes sufficient nutrition during his/her growing years. Cherie Hearts @ Bedok Central has also fulfilled the Health Promotion Board’s food service guidelines and is accredited with the Healthy Meals in Pre-schools Programme.
Our trained and dedicated team of educators are qualified in Early Childhood, so you can be assured that your child receives outstanding care during the crucial stages of his/her development. We aim to build the skill sets required for lifelong learning through making learning fun and enjoyable. Through this approach we adopt when nurturing your child, we hope to instill a love for learning, laying the foundations for independent study to stand your child in good stead for his/her bright future ahead.

Here are just some words from our happy parents!
Cherie Hearts @ Bedok Central is one of the best pre-schools in Singapore. My daughter, Niya, has been with the Centre since 2014 and I’ve seen a big transformation in her. The syllabus is age-appropriate and comprehensive for every class, which prepares Niya for future challenges as she moves on to primary school.
The overall environment is very positive, where educators are all very encouraging and motivating. They are always smiling and are always there to meet their needs. The Centre also regularly organises events and outings beyond the classroom walls so they get to learn a lot more about their neighborhood, appreciate the nature, and many others.
Since there are multinationalities in each class, Niya gets exposed to other children from different racial and cultural backgrounds. She enjoys the annual festive celebrations such as Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Deepavali, and Christmas.
I would definitely recommend Cherie Hearts to all parents who wish to leave their kids in a happy, safe, and enriching environment!

Cherie Hearts @ Bedok Central has really been a preschool of our choice. What differentiated it from the other childcare centres (such as the one where my 2 older children used to attend) is its endearing culture. The sense of camaraderie among the educators, the love, care and dedication they have towards the Cherians have impressed me tremendously. There is also a deep sense of responsibility to instil the right values in the children; how to interact with their friends, the importance of maintaining personal hygiene, imbuing in the children, love and gratitude to their parents, etc.
During an in-house Mother’s Day celebration over brunch, the team took pains to decorate the place, engaged the little ones to prepare the food, and even co-ordinated a surprise visit by the daddies! It is also apparent to me that the teachers truly enjoy working with children and partnering with parents to organise such events. I’ve not thought of sending Daniel to enrichment classes yet because he is learning very well at Cherie Hearts @ Bedok Central. The curriculum is well-planned and comprehensive so I have full trust in the team. Thank you, Cherie Hearts!
