About us

We stand with parents of autistic children in their crucial role of nurturing their children’s educational and social development. We understand the delicate balance they face, juggling the academic demands of school and fostering their children’s social and communication skills.

Our after-school care program is specifically designed to address these important challenges. Through a holistic approach, we empower your child to flourish in various aspects of their development.

Founded 2012

We started our business by providing language services to adults in Singapore. Our plan to include helping autistic children started after the birth of our son.

Our son was born in 2012 and was diagnosed with autism in 2016. The news hit us hard, and we asked many people for advice. People with the best intentions often give us conflicting advice, usually based on personal experience or from someone they know. It was not clinical, and frequently missed out on many important details.

Finding passionate early intervention teachers is challenging. So, back in 2017, we decided to start a website to help parents find the best for their autistic child, from swim coaches to music teachers to someone who can help them academically. It was a simple website, nothing too fancy.

In 2019, when my son started primary school, we realised that there are no after school care centres that focus solely on mainstream autistic children. There are after school care centres that handle autistic kids and also kids of various disorders. This arrangement is not the best as they may neglect a child on the higher spectrum to do well academically. That’s when we decided to start Starlight Centre, and we specialise in caring for kids at the higher end of the spectrum using a clinical-based teaching approach to train them to excel socially and academically.

We enrolled our son in Starlight School Holiday Programme for a week and we can see positive improvements in him! Ms Lee constantly updated us on our son’s activities of that day and was very welcoming. He enjoyed being with his friends in Starlight and even requested me to fetch him later 😂 He looked forward to go to Starlight everyday and even got a little teary eyed on his last day. We would recommend starlight for any high functioning ASD kids as the teachers not only teach but also nurture good daily living skills to the students. Would consider sending my son for Starlight’s after school care!

A Special Place for Special Needs: Starlight After School CareStarlight After School Care with Autism specializes in providing tailored education for children like my son. Their customized approach has helped him transition from challenging behaviors to positive ones, fostering his growth and development. I'm relieved to see him eager and happy to attend school and student care every day, especially after a negative experience with a previous after-school program. Starlight After School Care has truly made a difference in our lives.
