03 Connecting with communities
We connect them to communities where they parents can get assistance and support easily.
Sharing of best practices by conducting training and workshops to educate the public on:
- Building a caring and inclusive society.
- Collaborating with corporates and communities.
Knowledge Access is a part of the Busy Bees Group, a global early education organisation with a network of close to 600 education locations worldwide.
At our core, we believe that parental and community involvement are essential in ensuring a child's success – especially in their formative early years, when they should have access to high-quality infant care and preschools throughout Singapore.
We support vulnerable children – especially those from less-privileged families or with special needs – by offering them places in high-quality preschools at highly subsidised rates. While this isn’t free education, it’s a fantastic head start that makes good education in a safe environment, possible for these children.
We empower families by supporting parents with skills training, apprenticeships and mentoring, career counselling and placement. And we also offer financial assistance so parents can be assured that their children’s education will fit into their budgets – whatever it may be.
Through these efforts, and by connecting the community with relevant government agencies, we aspire to nurture a sustainable ecosystem and a more inclusive, caring society. Our goal is to ensure that no child gets left behind in their early-years education. Placements are at Busy Bees’ network of preschools in Singapore, which includes but not limited to BrightPath Inclusive Preschool, Learning Vision Preschool, and Small Wonder Preschool.
