OCBC-NTUC First Campus Bridging Programme
Supporting Singapore’s national agenda of making pre-school education more accessible, the OCBC-NTUC First Campus Bridging programme provides a one-time top-up of $400 into the Child Development Account (CDA) of every child from low-income Union families who are enrolled at a My First Skool centre.
This programmes ensures that preschool education and healthcare remain accessible to families, regardless of financial circumstances. The CDA top-up is extended to every eligible new enrolment. Families eligible for the Baby Bonus Scheme also receive dollar-for-dollar matching from the Government.
As an added support for the children and their families, OCBC Bank also organises Financial Literacy Workshops for parents under the programme, equipping them with necessary money management skills. These Workshops are conducted by staff volunteers from the OCBC Wealth Management team on a quarterly basis.
To be eligible:
- The child must be a new My First Skool enrolment from 1 January 2020.
- Either parent must be an NTUC Union Member.
- Monthly gross household income is $4,500 or less; or $1,125 per capita or less (applicable for 5 or more members in the household).
