CareNights@Morning Star

 

Temasek Foundation Cares – CareNights@Morning Star Programme was launched on 25 November 2016 to help parents from low-income families get respite from caregiving at night.

 

Some of the criteria for children to get enrolled in the scheme include parents seeking to improve their employability by upgrading their skills, families seeking to improve their economic condition by working overtime or taking on a second employment at night, among others. CareNights@Morning Star operates from 6 pm to 10 pm every weeknight. Children aged 7 to 14 are engaged in structured activities to support their learning of values and skills, such as Art for Therapy and performing arts.

 

The programme is free for parents for up to 6 months and is supported by Temasek Foundation Cares, which has committed $683,000. CareNights@Morning Star is expected to benefit 540 children and their families.
