Our Story

A Singapore-based company providing professional guardianship services.

Whats is IPGA?

iPGA, or international Professional Guardianship Agency, is a Singapore-based company providing professional Guardianship services.
Set up in 2019, iPGA is the only company known to provide this service and is helmed by its management and team of co-founders, executive director, and host of team and advisors – all of whom have extensive experience working with children and schoolchildren within the care and education industries. We shall meet them a little later on.
iPGA’s mission and vision is to care for and nurture the children and youth of today to become adults with good character and positive values, contributing to the community in the future

iPGA Brand Ethos

Our name itself spells out our Brand Ethos, and we would like to share this with you.

  • I is for International
because we have in our care, children and youth from various different countries and nations in Asia and beyond. We are also friendly, approachable, humble and our wards’ interests always come first.
  • G is for Guardianship
and this is the important service we offer to families who have children in Singapore. Rest assured that our team and Mentors are all carefully handpicked – they come from strong backgrounds of providing care for others and they perform their guardian roles with warmth, love and understanding. Our team mirror the traits of an Emperor penguin because just like them, our team are doting parents, like a parent penguin embracing its chick as seen in our logo.
  • P is for Professional
our Founders and team, Mentors and Trainers, and Advisors, are all certified, established, deeply experienced and well-respected members of the community at large, as well as professionals in the area of care and education, working with children and youth, and put together, have had charge of a multitude of children in the past 10 to 15 years.
  • A is for Agency
the company and people whom you engage to care over your child here in Singapore, providing the services required in an upright, responsible and professional way. ‘A’ also symbolises a peak – for strength, confidence, adventure, and high purpose.
