Canossaville Children and Community Services
How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Founded in 1941, Canossaville Children's Home (CCH) offers residential care to girls aged between 6 years to 12 years who come from family situations which may put them at risk. Our Special Student Care Centre offers before/after school care for boys and girls, including those with special needs; with priority for the most needy.
In view of the changing social landscape, the new name of Canossaville Children and Community Services will be adopted to serve the larger community in MacPherson/ Aljunied. There are plans to expand our Student Care Centre, as well as start an Inclusive Childcare Centre to cater mainstream and Special Needs children from the community. We also aim to ultimately include a specialist team consisting of speech therapist, educational psychologist, social workers etc. called "Canossian Circle of Care" to provide additional professional help required by the children and families within the Canossian Eduplex and community.
2017 is our transitional year. Operations for the new centres will begin in 2018.
Our goal is to build an inclusive and life-giving environment, no matter what the needs of the children and families are. The main focus on the programmes will be directed at nurturing character and values to ensure children grow up to contribute back to society through opportunities given to them in Canossaville. Most importantly, the approach will be for children to discover and appreciate their own unique strengths, talents and maximising their God-given potentials.
To enhance our children's learning and social skills, we offer a wide range of programmes such as reading, music, sports and arts. Recent programmes include literacy programme to build foundation to basic reading/writing, percussion lessons and moral education to instill compassion and empathy.
