Phase 2A2 eligibility for MOE Kindergarten

Post by tankee » Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:34 pm

From MOE Press Release

A Smoother Transition from MOE Kindergarten to Primary School

1. To provide more quality and affordable pre-school places, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong had announced at the National Day Rally 2017 that MOE would increase the number of MOE Kindergartens (MKs) to about 50 by 2023. All new MKs will be co-located with primary schools.

2. MOE will conduct a pilot, to extend Phase 2A2 eligibility to MK children for admissions to the respective primary schools that their MK is co-located with1. This will take effect for MK children participating in the 2018 Primary 1 Registration Exercise, for 2019 Primary 1 admission. The list of MKs co-located with primary schools with MK children participating in the 2018 Primary 1 Registration Exercise are in Annex A.

3. MOE recognises that there are developmental benefits in facilitating this transition for MK children. Facilitating them to remain in a familiar physical, social and educational environment for their primary school education will help smoothen their transition to Primary 1. With a close partnership between the MK and the primary school, the latter would also be more familiar with the needs of the MK children, and can more quickly ensure that they have the necessary developmental support when they enter Primary 1.

4. As a commitment to ensure open access to all primary schools, MOE will continue to ensure a minimum of 40 places in every primary school at Phases 2B and 2C. For details of the P1 registration framework, please refer to Annex B.

The change is timely for DD2 as she is currently studying in an MOE Kindergarten. Prefers the school as it is within walking distance.

Sad. This year’s cohort misses the boat. Would have been a nice option / alternative for me.

Quite a number of these schools are already balloting in Phase 2C. I think it’s just a matter of time before MOE K becomes the next battle ground for places.

presently the MOE kindergartens are not in many primary schools...otherwise it will create a big shift for kids to register in those kindergartens, since next year is p1 registration for dragon year kids.
MOE K will definitely be next battle ground...poor kindergartens will suffer a drop in enrolment.
