About

Little CAMPUS

SBC Little Campus is the Singapore Book Council’s preschool outreach programme that brings Singapore literature to preschool students and schools.

Our sessions allow young students to experience SingLit first-hand with interactive, customisable workshops focusing on storytelling, social-emotional competencies, literacy skills and more. These workshops are conducted in Chinese, English, Malay and Tamil. SBC Little Campus engages a pool of seasoned SingLit facilitators to ensure that students get the most out of their workshops at SBC Campus. Our workshops are great for programmes throughout the year or as enrichment activities.
