Integrated resort operator Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd will open a nursery to help support working parents within its organisation. The company issued a written announcement late in November saying its in-house nursery would be the first of its kind in Macao, subject to getting all relevant licences.
According to Melco Resorts, a charity with experience of running crèches, the Macau Holy House of Mercy, would manage the facility. The nursery’s location was not announced but the facility would be located at one of Melco Resorts’ properties.
Melco Resorts operates two integrated resorts in Cotai – Studio City and the City of Dreams – and the Altira Macau hotel-casino in nearby Taipa.
The initiative by Melco Resorts is part of a more holistic effort by the organisation to show corporate social responsibility. The integrated resort operator offers free cancer screening to female employees, lactation rooms at its main establishments in Macao, and has helped the Women’s General Association of Macau stage the Best Mom Awards that celebrate women’s contributions to society.
