Covid-19: Registered kindergartens and childcare centres can operate


By John Isaac

REGISTERED private childcare centres and kindergartens were given the green light to operate.

This was enforced to meet the needs of working parents and guardians, said Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah.

She said sending children to registered kindergartens would ensure their safety.

“We don’t want parents to send their children to unlicensed kindergartens because most of the buildings are not certified and do not comply with safety regulations.

“Many of these unlicensed centres do not limit the number of children allowed to attend,” she said at the reopening of Tadika Kurnia in Jalan Noakes, Sungai Apong, Kuching.

According to New Sarawak tribune, she reiterated that childcare centres located in the area enforced under the conditional movement control order (CMCO) and recovery movement control order (RMCO) are allowed to resume operation.

“The childcare centres at places that implements the movement control order (MCO) are not allowed to operate,” she added.
