About Us

About ESO 

At ESO, our desire is for every child to experience a joyful childhood. We pay close attention to a child’s psychological development, especially in the areas of social and emotional growth.


Research reveals that a startling 18% of young adults in Singapore grapple with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety (Evlanola, 2019). This is co-related to the manner in which they learn how to cope with their complex range of emotions in their formative years in early education.


We believe strongly in the importance of equipping children with the necessary skills to become confident and resilient individuals. We are collaborating with two early childhood education experts and one early childhood education partner to help our students develop social and emotional skills.  

ESO Story

The OEL (Holdings) Limited (SGX:584) had on 4 March 2020 established a wholly-owned subsidiary ESO Health Child Care Pte Ltd (EHCC). Under the leadership of CEO Zhao Xin and the Board of Directors, a shareholders' meeting was convened on 1 April 2020 where the diversification of the group's core business to include Childcare Wellness Education was approved.    


We successfully acquired the first preschool centre in Singapore by taking into our fold Discovery Kidz Preschool on 1 March 2020. We have developed a "Mission" and "Vision" for our preschool that will focus on promoting the mental, physical and behavioural wellbeing of our children.


Starting from 1 September 2020, our preschool will now operate under the brand name “ESŌ”, which will better reflect our enhanced curriculum. 


We are also collaborating with two early childhood education experts and one early childhood education partner to help our students develop social and emotional skills.


On 15 November 2021, ESO under OEL (Holdings) Limited has officially launched a societal-benefiting textbook which promotes social-emotional development in toddlers (age 1.5-3 years old). It is the first out of four series for age 1.5-6 years old, and is based on theories by Dr. Gail E. Joseph “Enhancing Emotional Vocabulary in Young Children”, and the Head Start Early Learning Outcome Framework from U.S. Department of Health and Human Science. This textbook is versatile as parents can also use this book at home to enhance what the child learns in the preschool. Link to book:
