National day focus: Something very wrong with preschool help? (Part 2)

We need to give more help to parents to have childten

After writing “National day focus: Something very wrong with preschool help?” (Aug 10), about the childcare fees’ financial assistance for a family of four with two children and gross household monthly income of $4,501 – I shall now write about the financial assistance for kindergarten fees, using the same family as an example.

According to a media report this year – “The PCF could not provide a range for how much fees would increase by, but a letter to parents from PCF Sparkletots Preschool @ Nanyang Blk 922 on revised fees — which was has been circulating online since last week — showed that from next year, K2 fees will be S$617.90 a month for Singapore citizens. Permanent residents (PRs) will pay S$765 and foreigners pay S$926.80.

For infant care, fees would be S$1235.80 a month for citizens, S$1,530.10 for PRs and S$1,853.70 for foreigners.”

In this connection, the Maximum % of Fee Assistance for household income of $4,501 is up to 35 per cent or Maximum Fee Assistance of up to $60.

So, does it mean that this family will get only $60 of financial assistance for each of their two childten’s kindergarten fees?

    Instead of focusing on our future direction and marco-planning of how to grow our GDP, having more jobs for fellow SG, lowering taxes, our useless leaders are telling us on preschool education slots, while preschool education are getting more and more affordable.

    This is the mere directions our next gen leaders has in mind for our countries, no wonder why more and more fellow citizens are migrating, lost hope for this country!!!

    The govt wants more kids? Start by being hardnosed about The constant price hikes on all things practically everyday. Increase productivity by slimming down the state. It would increase salaries. Take a really hard look at immigration and encourage companies to be more flexible with work and not show off home by hours employers work. If you have to work more than 40 hours there are serious ineffiencies and bad work structures.

    Now gimme my millions for the consultations:)

  • Going to Increase fees...:

    So must come up with some ‘justifications’ and test water first.

    Hope the fees increase is not going to be as shocking as the 30% increase in price of water!
