The ecosystem of partners play a key role in supporting the holistic development of our KidSTART children and their families.

 

While KidSTART’s work is centred on a child and their needs, we work with community agencies to address family functioning, wellbeing and basic needs of the families and also partner key stakeholders across the early childhood, health and social service sectors to support the entire family system.

Such partnerships have also allowed us to deliver services to families more effectively, by tapping on each other’s strengths and experiences; and to support even more children and families.

For interested partners

Multi-disciplinary Training (MDT) Programme

A child’s development is contingent on many factors, including health and nutrition, family support and opportunities for learning. To effectively meet the diverse needs of our KidSTART families, it is critical that our practitioners are well-trained and equipped with broad-based knowledge and skills across healthcare, child development and social work.

Launched by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) and Temasek Foundation (TF), in partnership with Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), the Multi-Disciplinary Programme for Enhancing Child Development comprises of (i) a foundational training programme and (ii) an in-service training programme to enhance the capabilities of KidSTART practitioners.

The foundational training conducted by NYP in collaboration with KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital and National Institute of Early Childhood Development, provides practitioners with limited or no prior work experience with young children from low-income families, with multi-domain knowledge and skills and an understanding of the challenges faced by low-income families.

Experienced practitioners may deepen their capabilities through the in-service training conducted by SUSS. The in-service training programme which comprises seven Continuing Education and Training (CET) modules aims to equip KidSTART practitioners with deeper knowledge and skills to better support KidSTART families.
