Leong Sze Hian on Independent Singapore using numbers to confuse Singaporeans and claim our Government is stingy on childcare funding?!
Just because there are 137,278 child care places, it doesn’t mean all are under Govt funding! There are also private childcares included! And why not show how much the Govt is subsidising for all Singaporean parents?
FACT: All parents with Singapore Citizen children enrolled in child care centres licensed by ECDA will continue to be eligible for a Basic Subsidy. In addition, families with monthly household incomes of $7,500 and below are eligible for an Additional Subsidy, with lower income families receiving more. Larger families with many dependents can also choose to have their Additional Subsidy computed on a per capita income basis
