Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children – P (EIPIC-P)

The Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children – P (EIPIC-P) is provided by ECDA-appointed private Early Intervention (EI) centres. It offers more choices of EI for children who have been referred for the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC). Children enrolled in the EIPIC-P will receive subsidies that will help to partially defray the cost of the EI services received.

More places added to the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) and EIPIC-P in 2024

In March 2024, the Ministry of Social and Family Development announced plans to add 1,500 places to EIPIC and EIPIC-P in 2024. This will ensure more children with developmental needs can receive timely support.

A new pilot programme, EIPIC-Care, will also be launched in the 2nd half of 2024. EIPIC-Care is a six-month training programme for caregivers of two to three-year-old children with developmental needs. Caregivers will learn from professionals how to support their children’s development at home, through group workshops and individual sessions. More details of this pilot will be announced later in 2024.


The EIPIC-P is administered by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA), part of the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF). Subsidies are only applicable to ECDA-approved EI programmes offered by appointed EIPIC-P Centres for children who are referred via SG Enable. Please refer to the Guide to EIPIC-P for more details.

Who can Apply?

To be eligible for the EIPIC-P subsidies, the child should be assessed by a paediatrician to require Early Intervention support at an EIPIC centre, with a referral made through SG Enable. Please refer to the EIPIC page for more information of the EIPIC eligibility criteria.
