Wright, S., Lim, A., Lim, S., Ng, Z. J., Poon, K., Tan, L. S., & Yang, C.-H. (2020). A development project for the scoping of the Singapore early years longitudinal study (Report No. OER 15/08 SW). National Institute of Education (Singapore), Office of Education Research.
Much of early childhood care and education policies and practices worldwide have been informed by a knowledge base derived from longitudinal studies of child outcomes in the United States, United Kingdom and other countries in the Northern hemisphere. There is an urgent need to acknowledge that research on young children in Singapore (as much as in other Asian contexts) needs to be supported by indigenous research to validate measures developed and normed elsewhere, and to verify and ascertain the factors that influence children’s developmental pathways across culturally diverse contexts. This pilot study, thus, set out to trial a selection of child measures, as well as design and pilot a parent survey that aims to yield useful baseline data on how families in Singapore are raising their 4-to-5-year-olds in this particular climate of academic pursuit and educational competition.
