KidSTART was introduced as a three-year pilot programme in 2016 to provide upstream support to children (aged 0-6) from low-income families in the areas of childhood development, health and social service. As we prepare to expand into new regions over the next few years, the Ministry of Social and Family Development is setting up a dedicated agency to implement the KidSTART programme and deepen partnerships between the community and Government to give these children a good start in life.
