Supporting the development and learning of children

In a partnership with the government, we disburse funds into the Child Development Accounts (CDAs) of vulnerable children to best support their early learning and overall development

WHY CDA TOP-UPS?

Lightening the costs of raising children

Pre-school plays a critical role in laying the foundation for children’s growth, yet some families impacted by economic uncertainty and job losses can’t afford pre-school, even with government aid.

By making an initial deposit into children’s CDAs, we help them lighten financial expenses such as pre-school fees and medical bills at Baby Bonus Approved Institutions.

It also enables children to benefit from the government’s dollar-for-dollar matching contribution, thereby doubling the number of financial aid available to them.

WHO WE IMPACT

Providing financial aid to vulnerable children

In 2020, we partnered with MOE and Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS) on a CDA Top-Up programme. We reached out to 14 times more beneficiaries than the previous year, benefiting about 1,300 pre-schoolers from low-income families.

This initiative is facilitated by the Uplifting Pupils in Life and Inspiring Families Taskforce (UPLIFT), an inter-agency taskforce. Eligible children whose families have a gross monthly household income of S$4,500 or less, will receive S$250 top-up to their CDAs each year for up to three years, as well as Additional Subsidy for their pre-school fees as of July 2020.
