Faith Kindergarten, formerly known as the Faith Methodist Church Nursery Programme, owes its humble beginnings to the vision of one man over 50 years ago. In 1966, the Rev T. C. Nga, Pioneer Work Pastor of Faith Methodist Church (FMC), saw the need for pre-school education for children within the Queenstown community, and laboured hard to meet it.
Over the years, enrolment gradually grew and it soon became well-known both within and beyond Queenstown. In 2004, almost 40 years after its inception, the kindergarten was officially registered with the Ministry of Education and became a joint ministry of FMC and Queenstown Chinese Methodist Church (QCMC).
On 18 March 2017, Faith Kindergarten celebrated its Jubilee year with a Thanksgiving Service, giving honour and glory to God for His continual protection and faithfulness over the past five decades. In attendance were the current batch of students, along with their parents, fellow alumni, pastors, and leaders from FMC and QCMC, as well as supporters and well-wishers.
Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Secretary-General of NTUC, and Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC, was present to grace the Service. He said: “As parents, we can help our children better define success. We can use different yardsticks as their needs may be different. If our children can do justice to their blessings, and learn to give thanks as an individual, to their families and society, we would have succeeded.”
To God be the Glory!
