Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. Limited (SGX:O39) HEFFX Highlights
- The facility, at OCBC Centre in Boat Quay, is run by the bank in partnership with NTUC First Campus, which manages The Little Skool-House childcare centre. Unlike most other such pre-schools, the OCBC facility provides dinner for the children and closes at 7.30pm. Others tend to shut their doors at 7pm.
- Ms Jacinta Low, OCBC’s head of human resource planning, told The Straits Times the initial low enrolment may be due to parents wanting to wait and see or not wishing to move their child from another centre.
- The bank’s partnership with NTUC First Campus has also expanded. In 2010, a similar centre was set up near the bank’s Tampines office. Later this year, another will open at One Marina Boulevard.
