Seed institute

SEED Institute is built upon a vision to give children the best head-start in life.  Set up in 1989 by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), in collaboration with the Bernard van Leer Foundation, a Dutch private philanthropic foundation, the Institute has groomed and accredited close to 15,000 early childhood professionals to provide the best care and education to young children in Singapore and the region.

With decades of accrued knowledge and expertise, SEED Institute now supports the development of both the local and international early childhood communities by offering practice-oriented training and consultancy services.

It has also built the capabilities to deliver whole-of-organisation training for early childhood operators of all sizes.

 

Recognising that parents play a pivotal role in their children’s education, Parents College was set up to partner and support families with young children with online and offline resources and services in parenting and school-related matters.

 

SEED Institute is also developing children’s enrichment and outdoor learning and adventure programmes that supports the holistic development of children beyond their preschools.
