Child care centres providing infant care services cater to children aged between 2 months to 18 months. These centres provide full day and half-day care programme for the infants/toddlers.

In addition to providing working parents with reliable care services, centre based infant care providers strive to meet and develop the physical, cognitive and psychosocial needs of the infant in a safe and conducive environment. As specialised training is an important requisite for staff working with infants, infant care centres are required to employ a state registered nurse or qualified infant care teacher to attend to the health and safety requirements of the infants.

The Ministry regulates and licenses child care programmes through the Child Care Centres Act and Regulations. It also governs child care programmes incorporating infant care services. Child care centres providing infant care services are required to comply with other requirements as specified in the guideline.
