The Ministry of Social and Family Development of Singapore stated that due to stricter safety distance measures implemented by the government, schools and education centers will be closed for one month, but during this period, parents must continue to pay tuition fees.
The spokesman said that many suppliers are SMEs, and if the government requires them to provide refunds, they may face the risk of closure or layoffs.
The Singapore government has initiated assistance measures to help local families and companies. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Wang Ruijie will also release more new policies to help new policies for Chinese and companies.
The spokesman also said that eligible parents can also enjoy tuition and trusteeship allowance during this period. Parents can also contact the pre-school education center to inquire whether a refund or fee waiver is required.
