OCBC-NTUC First Campus Bridging Programme

Supporting Singapore’s national agenda of making preschool education more accessible, the OCBC-NTUC First Campus Bridging Programme provides a one-time top-up of $400 into the Child Development Account of every child from low-income Union families who are enrolled at a My First Skool centre.


  • One-time top-up of $400 into the Child Development Account (CDA).
  • Dollar-for-dollar matching (i.e. total $800 of grants) by the government for families eligible for MSF’s Baby Bonus Scheme.
  • Financial Literacy Workshops conducted by OCBC Bank volunteers, which will equip parents with money management skills.

  • Preschool fees
  • Learning support programmes
  • Healthcare costs
