My First Skool Raises Fees – Are Parents Paying Too Much?
« on: January 22, 2018, 05:04:28 pm »
Your child may not be old enough for you to worry about tuition just yet, but get ready to pay all the same.

My First Skool, the NTUC-run childcare/infantcare centre and preschool, one of Singapore biggest chains, has raised their school fees yet again, sending new parents into a panic.

The fee increase will be between $6 and $33 a month for childcare and $5 and $20 for infantcare.

Is this overkill when NTUC is supposed to be committed to making childcare services more, and not less, affordable?

They have been hiking up their prices a lot over the years

Up to $34 a month more may not sound like much at first glance.

But take into account the fact that My First Skool has been increasing their school fees every year from 2014-2016.

You want 6.30pm educators for your kids?

Common sense should prevail that good educators don't come cheap ... ::)
