The Caterpillar's Cove

Mission Statement


The Caterpillar’s Cove Child Development and Study Centre focuses on growing children’s potential and connecting a learning community through research and teacher education and strives to exemplify educational practice at its best.
The Caterpillar’s Cove is a child study centre that aims to set new boundaries through quality and innovative curriculum and programmes to meet the developmental needs of children from 18 months to 6 years.
The Cove was conceptualized and designed by a team of early childhood specialists of NTUC First Campus, led by SEED Institute and was constructed with a grant from the Ngee Ann polytechnic at a cost of nearly $1 million. The Cove is managed by SEED Institute which also funds and supervises the curriculum development, staffing and operational costs of The Cove. SEED Institute is a key partner with Ngee Ann Polytechnic which jointly conducts the Diploma in ECE programme since 1999.
