Volunteer with KidSTART to help children

KidSTART is a pilot programme led by Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) to enable children from low-income families to have a good start in life.

Friends of KidSTART will work with our KidSTART partner agencies to support the engagement with children (from 0 to 3 years old) and/or their older siblings (mainly from 4 to 12 years old) from lower income families. These could include organising simple yet meaningful activities for them and their families.

Your support during our KidSTART sessions contribute to positive programme outcomes by giving parents the peace of mind to participate in the curricula/activities conducted by trained professionals. Every Friend of KidSTART will undergo basic training to help you better interact with young children and their families. If you’re interested in signing up or learning more please e-mail us at  KidSTARTVolunteer@ecda.gov.sg​​​​​​
