Cutie Cottage® Childcare Centre was founded by Ms Yew Tian Tian. She moved her first centre from a resident house to 1 First Avenue in 2012, opened her second centre at BU4 in 2013 and third centre at Kota Damansara in 2015. Her mission to help working mothers and passion in promoting breastfeeding has encouraged her to open up centres near to office buildings. Her vision is to create a professional childcare centre that is specialised in taking care of young children from 2 months onward. She has 3 core targets in mind for her childcare centre: professionalism, promote breastfeeding, transparency.
Ms Yew has three professional teams to support the operation of Cutie Cottage®. There are the nurses, the educators and the supporters.
The nurses have at least diploma in nursing and are registered with the Lembaga Jururawat Malaysia (LJM). Nurses are compulsory to attend in-house Level 1 and Level 2 Training. This is follow by written assessment and practical observation. Nurses must attend Peadiatric First Aid Course and have valid certificates. They would also attend Kursus Asuhan Permata (KAP) organised by JKMM.
The Educators have at least a Diploma in Education with experience from well-known kindergarten. The support team include the chef, the hygiene controller, the area manager, HR and account team. All the staff must pass the pre-employment medical screening and have their vaccination.
Besides getting qualified staff, Cutie Cottage uses Early Year Foundation Stage, England as the curriculum framework. The weekly activities include manipulative activities, science and maths, early literacy, art & craft, sensory play that target to achieve the seven areas of learning in the EYFS framework.
In order to support breastfeeding, parents are welcome to bring breast milk or walk-in to breastfeed their babies at the centre.
Ms Yew believes that a childcare centre should be transparent. She welcomes parents to visit the centre (as long it does not disrupt the children activities). She subscribes to online CCTV that allows parents to log in and view the centre anytime*.
