Partnership Programmes


Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre is happy to be a partner of Start Small Dream Big for the first time.


As this year’s theme is “Our Family, Our Community”, we collaborated with local illustrator Jang to create a series of comics which looks at the family values of filial piety, kindness, and love. In these bilingual stories, Little Fox and friends meet Little Otter in Singapore and many adventures await them.


Teachers are encouraged to use these comics to teach these family values to their students and make it relevant in their daily lives. Another example of how teachers can use our materials as teaching resources is shown in this video where we shared stories from the cultural picture books created in partnership with Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Each preschool centre is provided with a poster for teaching and learning, and each student gets to choose one out of four postcard designs to colour and write to their loved ones. Teachers are encouraged to email the completed postcards to for a virtual showcase. The top submissions would get free workshops and guided tour for teachers at your preferred date and time.


Preschools that are interested to partner us can watch the video below to find out more. For enquiries, please email

Inside the Chinese Singaporean – The Evolution of our Culture and Heritage Virtual Tour

The Chinese Singaporean identity today is a result of generations of intercultural influences. Through a walking trail of buildings, arts and food, we will bring you on a journey of discovery, to find out the level of ‘Chinese-ness’ Singaporean Chinese are.


Co-organised by Singapore Chinese Culture Centre and Tribe Tours, the tour will start off with the SINGAPO人 permanent exhibition which sets the context of the tour, we continue exploring the themes of the exhibition zones by embarking on a walking trail to Telok Ayer – the backbone of development of the Chinese migrant community in early Singapore.

  • What Makes Us, “Us” – Besides being shaped by our roots, culture and origins, buildings also tell a story. Behind the skyscrapers, conserved buildings, sculptures and green spaces is the story of how urban planners shape our Singapore image on the global stage.
  • Beyond Generations – What roles did clans play in shaping the Chinese Singaporean identity and how much of these remains for us?
  • When Cultures Meet – How did a Methodist church and mosque come to be in the heart of Telok Ayer? What role does a Chinese temple play in the past and present
  • Made in Singapore – Do you know that local favourite Hainanese Chicken Rice is a made in Singapore dish? Learn more about origins of Singapore food!
