Who We Are


Day One is a home grown, Singapore based organisation uniquely dedicated to innovation in the Learning Enhancement and Alternative Pediatric Therapy sector.

We believe strongly in the importance of preparing the next generation for the future.

Using the three-pillar approach: Cognitive, Social, and Emotional functioning, we prepare our clients to be future-ready and prepared to tackle any difficulties they may face at school, at work, and in life.

A strong believer in natural holistic approaches, and backed by experienced professionals in the areas of natural, external therapy techniques for children, we are also among the few Pediatric Wellness providers in Singapore with our own proprietary treatment methods.

Today, our team consists of experts offering natural, psycho-educational, behavioural and learning related support to children from the ages of 3 to 12.

Our experts use evidence-based approaches to address the social and emotional needs of children. Always keen to contribute to educational research, we are in the midst of establishing a long-term collaboration with the leading educational research facility, the National Institute of Education, Singapore.

Through talks with industry experts, Day One’s research shows that a notable segment of children between the ages of 6 and 12 slip through the cracks due to undiagnosed mild learning disorders. Though the effects of these disorders can be seen between 6 and 12, detection and prevention is recommended in infancy and early childhood.

Therefore, we also work with children with developmental concerns, attention difficulties, learning disorders and behavioural problems. These can be due to conditions such as developmental delay, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorders (ADHD), Dyslexia and numerous others related to intellectual development and executive functioning in children.

Day One Academy provides individual and group sessions for children between the ages of 3 to 12 in the areas of literacy, numeracy, social skills, and behavioural management. We also conduct cognitive and behavioural assessments for school admissions, applications for access arrangements, etc

Our Team

Jennifer Loo
Founder & CEO

Jennifer Loo has 20 extensive years of experience in multidisciplinary marketing playing a key role in strategic development, branding and managing a wide range of marketing efforts involving print, digital and integrated advertising. Through Jennifer’s deeply personal journey towards heightened self-awareness, personal mastery, healing, inner freedom and her natural inclination towards youth issues, she has questioned if the tools she learned as an adult could be applied to young children and adolescents who could benefit from being more mentally and socially cognizant. Jennifer is also particularly interested in developmental delays and health challenges and how they interplay with learning difficulties, behavioural disorders, low self-esteem and self-worth.

As such, Jennifer decided to venture into Early Intervention, Enrichment and Natural Herbal Therapies for children aged between 0 months and 6 years of age. Recognizing the child’s mental, emotional and physical needs as important components of one’s development and drawing inspiration from the famous African proverb that ‘it takes a village to raise a child’; she seeks to make integrated and cutting edge early intervention and enrichment strategies accessible to parents, children, teachers and caregivers alike.

She envisions a world where every child has the opportunity to grow up as compassionate mindful human beings, resilient in coping with life’s stresses, aware of their emotional and mental well-being and motivated to fulfil their own pursuits in a responsible way.

Our philosophy

We believe prevention is better than cure and the best way to prevent a child from falling sick is no other than by strengthening the child’s immune system. we advocate building kids health through natural ways as excessive oral medications may weaken the child’s immune system.

How we do it?

We combine Research & Development and TCM knowledge together with our years of clinical experience in Paediatric care to develop our unique methods in treating various childhood ailments and keeping children in the pink of health.
