The KidSTART Programme
The KidSTART programme, introduced in 2016, aims to give children aged 0 to 6 years old from low-income families in Singapore a good start in life by supporting their parents and caregivers in the areas of early childhood development. The programme supports pregnant mothers and monitors the developmental progress of children from birth onwards. It also coordinates and strengthens holistic services for families, where needed.
Through KidSTART, parents and caregivers are equipped with the knowledge and skills to:
- Build warm nurturing relationships with their children;
- Support the age-appropriate development of their children; and
- Care for the health and social wellbeing of their children in their early years.
