Basic Infant Care Training for Foreign Domestic Workers
Having a good infant care trained Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) gives you a peace of mind wherever you are.

"The course is very comprehensive and teaches FDW the proper standards of taking care of an infant."
- Ms Sherry Tan, Employer of FDW
Parents are always in a dilemma between caring for their child themselves and engaging external help in child caring duties. Nothing beats having your child by your best at all times, but it could sometimes be difficult to do that in a fast-paced work demanding Singapore.
We know your concerns and we want to take a weight off your mind knowing that your child is well looked after. Together with infant care professionals from KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, we co-developed the Basic Infant Care Training for FDW programme to support you and your family better.
The Basic Infant Care Training for FDW programme is a hands-on workshop that helps to prepare your FDW in caring for your infant. Specially written for infants from 0 to 18 months, you can be assured that the curriculum covers the daily needs in routine care. Click below to view our curriculum.
