Start Small Dream Big 2020: Curious Creation Art Sale for President’s Challenge
In partnership with Preschool Market, Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse has registered their participation for this year’s Start Small Dream Big 2020 project. Through ‘Curious Creations: Art Sale’, over $8000 were raised for the beneficiaries under the President’s Challenge.
‘Curious Creations: Art Sale’ is a collaborative initiative by Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse and Preschool Market to raise funds and support the President’s Challenge. Since the onset of COVID-19, it has curbed traditional fundraising events due to the implementation of safe distancing measures and guidelines to adhere. Therefore, ‘Curious Creations: Art Sale’ was hosted online from 17th August to 31st August 2020. It was truly heart-warming to witness how supportive and giving the children, teachers and parents have been in contributing to this community project. Their efforts have raised a total sum of $8823 for the President’s Challenge.
In line with this year’s Start Small Dream Big theme “A Caring and Inclusive Home for All”, the dedicated team of teachers and children at Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse embarked on a discussion regarding how the pandemic has impacted the people in our community. After sharing how they could each play their part and contribute back to the society, the children created crafts that depicted their feelings towards our nation and showcased the spirit of kindness and compassion. Below are some photos of passionate children creating their artworks.
By providing some resources and hosting the online art sale on our Marketplace, Preschool Market hopes that the children from Kiddiwinkie have not only learnt and appreciated the theme for this year, but also understand the process of art sale from start to finish, all while doing good!

About Start Small Dream Big
The ‘Start Small Dream Big’ (SSDB) movement was initiated by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) in 2015 to encourage preschools to create platforms for children to give back to the community. It was first launched as part of SG50 and the 15th anniversary of President’s Challenge, as an annual series of fund-raising and volunteer activities. Participating preschools design and implement community service projects for children over a period of six months. This year, over 53,000 children from 950 preschools collectively dedicated 1.5 million hours of community service projects under the SSDB movement.
