Inclusive Support Programme (InSP)


The InSP caters to children with developmental needs aged three to six who require medium levels of early intervention support.

By integrating both early childhood education and early intervention in a preschool setting for these children, the InSP seeks to provide a more inclusive learning experience for both typically developing children and children with developmental needs.


Admission Criteria

The InSP pilot will be implemented in 6 childcare centres and 1 MOE Kindergarten.

For the InSP in childcare centres, children who can enrol in the programme:

  1. Are 3 to 6 years old in the year of enrolment;
  2. Are Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents;
  3. Require medium levels of early intervention support;

    1. Your child should be assessed by a paediatrician1 to be at risk or diagnosed with a developmental, intellectual, sensory or physical disability, or a combination of disabilities.
    2. Your child will also be screened by the InSP preschool to confirm that his/her needs can be supported through the InSP in a preschool.
  4. Not concurrently enrolled in any other ECDA-funded EI programmes2.

The InSP in MOE Kindergarten is for children with hearing loss requiring signing. More information can be found MOE Kindergarten website.


The maximum Out-Of-Pocket (OOP) fees per month for the InSP ranges from $10 to $430, depending on monthly household per capita income. The fees are only applicable to children served under the InSP. The fees for InSP are payable to the preschool. For more detailed information on fees, please approach the InSP providers.
