I am more at NFC because my personal welfare is always emphasised.

I first joined NFC as an English teacher in 2009 because I was drawn to its mission of making quality childcare services accessible to working families. Never did I think that I would one day be doing research management! Although I was a little apprehensive at first, I was given plenty of support and guidance as the project went along. The empowerment given to me as well as my bosses’ feedback and guidance have also been very helpful.

As a working mother of three preschool-aged children, NFC’s family-friendly policies have helped me maintain good work-life balance. In fact, during the circuit breaker, my boss was concerned that I was pushing myself too hard and encouraged me to take some days off to spend time with my children.

I believe that the best way to give back to society is to build the next generation by giving children a high-quality education. NFC has allowed me to do just that.
