Under the Growing Together with KidSTART partnership, KidSTART Singapore, SP Group and EtonHouse Community Fund (ECF) have launched KidSTART Stories to equip more than 1,800 families with resources to support parents in the early childhood development of their children through storytelling and reading.
This is another initiative in KidSTART Singapore’s ongoing #AGoodStart initiative to create awareness on the importance of child development in the early years.
KidSTART Stories was launched at Keat Hong Community Club, with Ms Sun Xueling, Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Social and Family Development in attendance as Guest of Honour.
A Mini-Library & Access To Video Guides For Every KidSTART Family
The mini-library will facilitate families to create a conducive space at home for children to explore books and enjoy reading sessions with parents.
Parents will also have access to a series of videos produced by KidSTART Singapore to guide them on techniques for storytelling and conversational reading to infants and young children and how they can inject fun and learning in the activities through pictures, songs and dance.
Moving forward, KidSTART is looking to collaborate with various partners to create more video reading guides and sponsorship of new books in the pipeline.
KidSTART Sea Adventures
Recently, KidSTART had also launched an interactive play KidSTART Sea Adventures, adapted from a storybook written by KidSTART’s early childhood specialist.
The KidSTART Sea Adventures play will be restaged across different neighbourhoods around Singapore to reach out to more families.
