SINGAPORE - A white photo frame and a colourful scrap book that comes with stickers are just some items that parents of babies born next year can look forward to.
Both items, part of an eight-item SG50Baby Jubilee Gift, were shown to the media on Tuesday by the National Population and Talent Division under the Prime Minister's Office. Other items, which include a baby sling, medallion and diaper bag, will also be unveiled this Sunday.
In June, it was announced that every Singaporean baby born in 2015 - Singapore's Golden Jubilee year - will receive the Jubilee Gift set, which also includes a shawl, a baby book and a set of baby clothes.
On top of the Gift items, the Government is also rolling out a suite of courses for parents of SG50 babies from March 2015.
Parents can head to community centres and resident committee centres around the island to attend classes ranging from scrapbooking classes to baby massage techniques.
More details on the courses, such as the types of courses on offer and how to sign up, will be put on the People's Association (PA) and SG50Baby websites in early 2015.
The PA is partnering the National Population and Talent Division to offer the courses, which aims to equip mothers and fathers-to-be with parenting skills.
Ms Tan Swee Leng, PA director of the Lifeskills and Lifestyle Division, said: "Parenthood is an exciting journey for many new and expecting parents... From the learning of baby care tips to creating a scrapbook to store precious moments of the child's growing years, parents next year can look forward to a variety of parenthood related courses at various community centres and resident committee centres island-wide."
