Nurture is a 40-week community literacy and numeracy programme for disadvantaged children aged 7 to 12. The programme comprises two core modules – Communications (20 weeks) and Problem-Solving (20 weeks).

The activity-based curriculum is designed to be interactive, engaging and child-centric. With targeted lesson plans for each Primary Level, the programme aims to complement existing educational efforts and help children strengthen their academic foundation while developing essential skills that will equip them for the future.

Nurture supports and complements the efforts of MOE schools and self-help groups by helping children to:

  • Develop essential future-ready skills
  • Build their confidence
  • Empower them to be self-directed learners
  • Build their character and values

To date, there are 10 Nurture Centres in the Central Singapore District, with more than 600 children under the programme. Our existing Centres are located at:
