KidSTART

Care Corner is the appointed Social Service Agency for KidSTART in the Woodlands and Sembawang regions. KidSTART is a programme for children 6 years and below from low-income families. It aims to give children a good start in life by empowering families to build strong foundations for their children and foster positive child development outcomes.

Under KidSTART, we provide support for child development, coordinate and strengthen holistic services for families where needed, and monitor the developmental progress of children from birth onwards.
