Partners of Operators (POP)



Minister Tan Chuan-Jin announced on 19th October 2015 the appointment of Partner Operators under the POP Scheme.

The POP Scheme was introduced:

a. to keep fees affordable

b. to support centre quality: throught the Singapore Pre-school Accreditation Framework (SPARK) and by investing in corporate capabilities

c. to support teacher quality: through the professional development and career progression of educators in the centre

Alliance First has been appointed a Partner Operator (POP), supported by the Government. Being a member of Alliance First, The Sunbird is able to share with you the benefits of the POP Scheme.



Under the Scheme, Singapore children will enjoy a one-off reduction in published fees with effect from 1 January 2016. This reduction (subsidized by the Government) supplements the Basic and Additional subsidies that may already apply to you.

The Sunbird 2016 FULL DAY FEES (before GST) are:

Levels Toddler N1 N2 K1 K2
Singapore Citizen $800* $798* $798* $798* $798*

 *after one-off reduction

Any future fee increases by POP centres from 2016 to 2020 will be kept affordable to parents and not exceed $800 (excluding GST) for full day care.



The Sunbird's quality journeydoes not stop there. We will build on our strengths, continue to create authentic learning experiences for your children, and preserve the culture of handholding with parents to reinforce centre learning at home.

All of this will not have been possible without our core people, the dedicated team of passionate educators in The Sunbird. They are central to our delivery of quality childcare and curriculum. For them, the roll-out of the POP Scheme is timely. Our teachers can expect Government support in their professional development. As the centre grows, the creation of larger job roles within the centre will provide them with more career progression choices.

Thank you for choosing The Sunbird to be a part of your child's learning journey. Your strong support and active participation continues to motivate all of us at The Sunbird to continually improve the quality of our services and exceed your expectations.
