Going to be very tough to get PR from S Pass. Please try to upgrade to EP and then apply.

The headline from your skill sets probably give you a reasonable chance, but your ethnicity stands against you.

Your son is going to a local school (MOE) or is he going to a school locally? These are two different things

I also don't understand why people say they go to a top university or work for a top company. Who wouldn't say they didn't go to a top university/company?

I would be interested to know what you are actually doing as a data analytics "expert". Many juniors working at banks work with massive amounts of data (SQL, python etc), but wouldn't call themselves data analytics experts. They laugh and say - oh we just learn at undergrad.

I work on the business side and not IT. I collaborate with senior management across departments including front office to Solve problems, support strategic decision making, deliver business insights and perform impact measurement for key business initiatives. So not a junior level sql data retriever :)

My son goes to a cherie hearts center in the neighbourhood which follows the ECDA guidelines.

As for cherie hearts, as local as it might sound, its a privately run kindergarten.
No brownie points from the integration aspect of it.

- TOP / reputed universities in motherland (but how many of them are really TOP in world rankings really?)
- experts in DA, AI, ML, IT
- Masters in engineering, MBA
- blood donations
- monthly donations to SHF, Red Cross or buying X’mas cookies from girl guide, Boy Scout
- heavy contributions to SRS, investment in unit trust, well insured with X insurance policies
- in local pre-schools
- some lucky ones will say own private condos

We have seen it all over the years and ICA MUST give you PR based on the above.

I actually think they would. Up to 2010.
And it all got tweaked, over and over again.

I still think your ethnicity is really what will stand against you.

I like your description of your role. It sounds like what someone would put into a year end review
"collaborate", "strategic", "insights", "impact"
:D

You both earn decent salaries so there is no harm in applying (the application fee won't kill you), but don't be surprised if you are rejected and never approved. Good luck!

I would said almost all childcare follow ECDA guideline

https://www.ecda.gov.sg/pages/aboutus.aspx
