Canossaville runs an integrated Preschool and Student Care Centre in the Aljunied-MacPherson region which includes the provision of specialised programmes and therapies for the children, and outreach to families in the neighbourhood. The programmes cater to both mainstream children, as well as those with additional needs, giving priority to the poorest living among the lower income neighbourhoods.
Under Canossaville's Formation of the Heart programme, the children are nurtured and empowered to be persons of integrity, committed to God and caring for others. Founded by the Canossian Sisters in 1941, Canossaville is licensed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA).
