The three rings from left to right, represents the Centre, the Parents and the Child. The lower front tail marks the beginning of a learning journey and the upper back tail marks the child’s independence, broken from the bonds which nature bestowed upon him.
The white symbolises a renewal, whereby the child is well-equipped to start facing future challenges on his own. The white is present in all three rings of the logo to signify the integration of the child into mainstream society can only be made possible together with the support of the parents and the centre.
Green symbolises growth and continuity. Just like peas in a peapod, children needs to be continuously nurtured and showered with love, care and attention. From the time your child first join us, there will be progress and development in your child. This is represented by the overall ascending position of the logo.
Finally, the three green overlapping rings symbolises the commitment and cooperation between the centre, the parents and the child to eventually present the child the gift to live better in the community.
To compliment the name of the centre, we created our very own cartoon to further distinguish ourselves.
Our mascot shows the faces of three children wrapped in the comfort of a peapod. The three faces are of different age, gender and nationalities, which accurately depicts the profiles of children enrolled in our centre.
The colourful mascot portrays the curious, cheerful and unassuming behaviour of children which never fail to invoke the interest of parents and children alike.
