Kindle Garden
« on: December 08, 2017, 05:40:30 pm »
I had the privilege of attending the film launch of a documentary on Kindle Garden, Singapore’s first inclusive preschool.

At the panel session, Mr Lee Poh Wah, CEO of Lien Foundation quoted the tagline of ECDA and MOE (Pre-school), which was “A Good start for every child” and “A Strong start for every child” respectively, and asked: “Really? Every child?” So Lien Foundation embarked on this project with AWWA, commencing operations in January 2016.

Mr Karthikeyan, a Director at AWWA said :“Inclusion is not the same as integration (See explanation here). Inclusion is not merely just about caring for kids with additional needs, it also encompasses the shaping of both flexibility and quality in thinking to allow for a wholehearted acceptance of diversity”.

The two videos demonstrated what that inclusion looks like. It showcased what Kindle Garden does and can accomplish in the development of children – all the children.
