"Every Day is Fruity Day" • 

PCF Sparkletots Preschool @ Changi-Simei Blk 131 (KN)  



This is the 3rd year that PCF Sparkletots Preschool Changi Simei Blk 131 (KN) has carried out our ‘Fruity Day’. We are extremely glad that this practice has been beneficial to the children in our centre and we are certain you would find it beneficial too! We began with promoting Fruity Day once a week in 2015. In 2016, we had Fruity Day thrice a week, and in 2017, EVERY DAY is Fruity Day!
