Pre-School Bursary


ABOUT

BURSARY


SINDA’s pre-school bursary helps Indian children from low-income families with costs relating to pre-school education. Children must be aged seven years old and below and must already be receiving additional subsidy from Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) before applying for the Bursary. This Bursary is especially helpful to parents who are keen to enroll their children in an ECDA-Registered Childcare Centre.
