Making a difference to our children
Olive Tree Development Center is an extension of Olive Tree Baby & Kids Clinic with over 15 years of medical practice in Singapore.
Our Mission is to provide personalized learning services for children with special needs and community
reefs of support for their families in the developmental journey of the child.
What spurred us to build this team? In 2011 we conducted many interviews and realized resource and facilities were constrained to meet pressing demands for early intervention. This was a call to action to make a small difference.
The Mission of OTDC is simple. In the Olive Tree logo, the tree represents a nurturing environment, the two children at play symbolises joy and social integration at home, school or community. The Star depicts their potential. We aim to reach out to these "twinkling stars" and draw out their talents and gifts to help them Shine!
As an early intervention center, our multi-disciplinary team consisting of paediatricians, educational psychologists, occupational therapists, speech & language therapists, special needs teachers, music therapists, art and dance movement therapists strive to deliver a child-centric suite of medical and therapy services. All our Intervention programs are accredited by MSF (Ministry of Social & Family Development) and eligible for CDA/Baby Bonus)
We have a special focus on Music Therapy which is an evidence-based intervention. When music and movement are a natural, joyous part of childhood, children benefit greatly in many areas of life. Language development, self expression, memory skills, concentration, social interaction, fine motor skills, listening, problem solving, teamwork, goal setting, and coordination are all impacted by early music and movement education.
