New framework to look into quality of pre-schools next year
To raise the quality of pre-schools, the Ministry of Social and Family Development will be introducing a new legislative framework under new Act next year.
All kindergartens and childcare centres will be licensed under the same Act.
The Ministry will work with operators to ensure a smooth transition.
The Singapore Pre-School Accreditation Framework or SPARK will also be enhanced to improve quality of pre-schools.
The assessment process of pre-schools will be streamlined and there will be a clearer rating system to distinguish centre quality by the end of the year.
These were announced by MSF Minister Chan Chun Sing.
