Understanding Child Outcomes from Early to Middle Childhood

The Singapore Kindergarten Impact Project (SKIP) was initiated in 2014 with the aim of studying child development across the pre-school years. The early childhood period is a crucial time in a child’s development as it lays the foundation for later outcomes such as academic performance and well-being. What occurs when the child enters middle childhood? To provide a holistic view of child outcomes across the early and middle childhood years, a follow-up study, “SKIP-Up”, for short, has been mounted. Dr Fannie Khng Kiat Hui, Senior Education Research Scientist with the Centre for Research in Child Development at NIE, tells us more about this project.
