Every child deserves
an equal opportunity
live a life filled
with hope, love
Up to 53% of children from families that earn less than $450 per capita showed delays in functioning skills.Annals Academy Of Medicine, 2015
Some parents may struggle with resource and time constraints, spending very little time with their children because they have to work, often at odd hours and sometimes with unpredictable changes in shifts. This may affect their children’s well-being and development, thereby placing them behind the starting line in life’s race.
Early Childhood Education
Children who do not go through early childhood education may face a 25% decrease in average adult earning potential.The Lancet, 2016
Early childhood education is important because it consists of not just education but also interaction. Having early interactions and experiences an help a child to have a strong foundation in life. However, due to different family circumstances, some children may require more care and support. Initiatives under Youth Corps Singapore such as KidsCount and KidsFun Holiday Programme provide opportunities to the children to further develop themselves by gaining skills and meaningful interaction.
