Minister for Social and Family Development Tan Chuan-Jin says that pre-school prices are unlikely to rise despite a proposed law that forces them to adhere to higher standards.

During the parliamentary debate on the Early Childhood Development Centres Bill, which was passed in parliament, 6 MPs raised the issue of the possibility of raised prices.

Mr Tan says that the requirements have been “calibrated” to raise the quality of programmes without raising costs for pre-schools, and that rent and staff salaries are the main costs for pre-schools. There are also no plans to raise space-child or staff-child ratios.

Mr Tan added that many of the requirements are already in place in schools and so they would not have to make too many adjustments that require a rise in prices.
