Hi Happydaddy,


I think is all CC gonna increase the fees. As I am looking for a CC for my girl next year N2, I went to MCYS website to look at their prices, but when I call those CC, all CC tell me next year they gonna increase the price, some increase $50, some even up to $100. :slapshead:

Dunno izzit a trend, one increase, all increase... :grphug:


I did ask the reason for the increase, and they mention that coz everything also increase, including their rental, esp those hot spot area, like near mrt, even a CC at hdb branch office, hdb also increase their rental.. so they put the cost to us... :stupid:

Gov grant, :roll: I guess unless alot of parents write in to MCYS to complain den only will work ba... :rotflmao:

I'm lucky then that my DD's childcare fees remained status quo since she joined at 2.5yrs, it's been 3 years now. The centre's increased fees over the years apply to newly joined kids only, who are paying $100 more than mine.

Actually I hope the grants keep pace with the eventual increase in CC fees.. Govt should help the parents more if they want fertility rates to rebound.

Currently, my son's CC is a new set-up and we are lucky to lock in a 20% discount for 12 full months, which certainly makes it easier on our pockets. No idea how fees will look like in a year's time given the inflation in Singapore - rents, food etc.
