Singapore Childhood

Our Stories Then and Now


The political, economic and social changes that have occurred over the past 60 years have shaped and transformed the childhood of children in Singapore. This book explores this transformation through anecdotes and memories through interviews with individuals hailing from different races and age groups, together with related archived materials from different sources. The components of childhood — birth, home, play, school, health and welfare — are revisited so as to provide useful insights about the past to young readers and at the same time serve as a nostalgic read for older readers.
