No Financial Barriers to Quality Education
My delivery job does not make enough for me to support my family, so my wife has to work to supplement the family income. We had to send our children for childcare so that we could focus on our jobs.
Initially, we were worried about whether the children would eat and sleep well in school. But the teachers shared updates with us regularly, letting us know that the children were settling in well and had no problems eating and sleeping. This made us feel better and we have learned to trust the centre completely in caring for our children.
We learned about the Bright Horizons Fund (BHF) when we enquired about financial assistance. The BHF has really eased our worries; the subsidies have made the school fees affordable and we do not have to worry about being able to send our children to school. The children’s learning is taken care of, and we know that MFS always has the children’s best interest at heart.
Of the many initiatives that we have received from the BHF, the CDA Top-Up Programme has been the most beneficial. Besides school fees, the money can also be used for doctor visits for the children. This practical form of assistance is very helpful to us
The BHF has enabled our children to fully benefit from the quality programme at MFS. As a result, they have learnt to speak better and are curious learners who always ask questions. As parents, we are assured that our children are being given a good foundation that will prepare them for formal education in Primary school.
We often share with our relatives and friends about how the BHF has enriched our children’s early years. Both MFS and the BHF have exceeded our expectations of what a preschool will do for children and their families.
You can touch lives through the BHF. Your contribution goes a long way and helps to ensure that children are given opportunities to education regardless of their family backgrounds. Be a part of the BHF family.
