In 2016, Blossom Educare Centre was awarded an Innovation Grant by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) to embark on the Innovation Project entitled “Current Affairs for Preschoolers”. We partnered with Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and subscribed to their “Little Red Dot” newspaper for our K1 & K2 children.
As part of this project, parents and their preschoolers were invited to a “Young Storymakers” workshop to equip them with the necessary skills to engage their preschoolers with news materials. This workshop was conducted by the Imagin8ors and Little Red Dot’s team from SPH. Participants enjoyed the morning with fun-filled activities and the preschoolers even had a chance to record their news broadcasting to showcase the News Front Page that they created.
The Innovation Project was subsequently accorded the Early Childhood Innovation (Merit) Award at the ECDA Conference 2017 and the project was showcased at the Conference Exhibition hall.
We would like to thank all our teachers and children who have participated in this project and made this achievement possible!
