Micron sets up first industry-driven childcare centre at Batu Kawan

24/11/2022 02:54 PM

BATU KAWAN, Nov 24 (Bernama) -- Micron Technology, an industry leader in innovative memory and storage solutions, has set up the first public-privately funded childcare centre in the country in a bid to support a work-life balance lifestyle for its employees.

Micron Technology president and chief executive officer, Datuk Sanjay Mehrotra said the childcare centre was set up through a partnership with the Penang government and TalentCorp.

“The childcare centre will be operating this December and it is expected to accommodate up to 100 children between the age of three and six years," he told reporters at the launch of the childcare centre at the Borealis Commercial Centre, yesterday.

Sanjay said the centre would be managed by the WhyteHouse Education Group, an established operator of early childcare education facilities in Malaysia.

Explaining further, he said the centre was only opened for children of Micron employees at an affordable fee as the focus was to ease the burden of working parents by providing a safe daycare for their children, while they were at work.

“Access to childcare is one of the biggest determiners of whether working parents, and mothers specifically, are able to build a strong and fulfilling career. This is part of Micron’s strategy to build a diverse team with the strongest talent,” he said.

He said that with the outcome of the experiment of the first child care centre in Penang, expansion plans might take place in the future.
