Helping Children and Youth
- We are expanding KidSTART, as well as our volunteer-run tuition and mentoring programmes. They help give every child the best chance to develop, early in life.
- We have expanded childcare and infant- care centres across Jurong GRC, so
they are within easy reach. Government subsidies, which have been increased significantly, will ensure that quality preschool education remains affordable for young parents.
- We will pay special attention to families with children with special education needs. Grace Orchard School in Jurong GRC will be expanded to provide more places for students with mild intellectual disability, and the school’s facilities will also be upgraded.
- We will also build on our programmes in Jurong GRC for youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. We must do all we can to help them discover their talents and interests, and to provide them with mentorship.
WHAT WE ARE DOING TOGETHER IN JURONG GRC
We must never stop in our efforts to make Singapore better, for every citizen.
We believe this requires good government policies complemented by strong community initiatives.
We strengthened many of our schemes during COVID-19, and will continue with several of these initiatives in Jurong GRC even after the pandemic.
We will work closely with government agencies, volunteer organisations, employers, our many committed volunteers and all our residents,
to build a strong and compassionate community.
