Sunday, 29 May 2022 9:27 PM MYTMELAKA, May 29 — The establishment of new kindergartens under the Social Welfare Department (Kemas) in an area will depend on whether it is needed to avoid wastage.Rural Development Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said currently Kemas kindergartens are competing with primary schools that are offering pre-school education for children as young as four years of age.

“We are constantly reviewing applications or the need to establish a new Kemas kindergarten in the outskirts of towns or rural areas because it involves numerous factors, especially in terms of funding.“A certain amount of money is needed to open a new Kemas kindergarten and each year there will be new Kemas kindergartens opening and there are also those that we had to shut down due to the lack of pupils as parents chose to send their children to pre-schools,” he said to reporters after officiating the Persatuan Anggota Kemas Malaysia 2022 and Kelab Anak Muda Perintis Intelektual Semalaysia annual general meeting, which was also attended by Kemas director-general Datuk Mohamad Yaasid Bidin.

Sunday, 29 May 2022 9:27 PM MYT MELAKA, May 29 — The establishment of new kindergartens under the Social Welfare Department (Kemas) in an area will depend on whether it is needed to avoid wastage. Rural Development Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said currently Kemas kindergartens are competing with primary schools that are offering pre-school education for children as young as four years of age. A TOTAL of 180 Community Development Department (Kemas) preschools and nurseries have been closed due to the hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) as of yesterday. “We are constantly reviewing applications or the need to establish a new Kemas kindergarten in the outskirts of towns or rural areas because it involves numerous factors, especially in terms of funding. “A certain amount of money is needed to open a new Kemas kindergarten and each year there will be new Kemas kindergartens opening and there are also those that we had to shut down due to the lack of pupils as parents chose to send their children to pre-schools,” he said to reporters after officiating the Persatuan Anggota Kemas Malaysia 2022 and Kelab Anak Muda Perintis Intelektual Semalaysia annual general meeting, which was also attended by Kemas director-general Datuk Mohamad Yaasid Bidin. Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription. Mahdzir also said new Kemas kindergartens will be opened to reduce the density of students in existing kindergartens to ensure that early education classes can be conducted smoothly and comfortably. He also assured that Kemas would monitor the development and take proactive measures to address the spread of the disease on their premises based on standard operating procedures (SOP) set by MOH.

“We only need between 20 and 30 pupils for each kindergarten, if the number exceeds this, we will have to open new kindergartens because we do not want the classes to be crowded,” he said. He said there were 10,765 Kemas kindergartens nationwide with 215,565 pupils. In other developments, he said a proposal to raise the allowance of Kemas kindergarten assistants to RM800 a month was still at the study stage at the Finance Ministry. Mahdzir added that Kemas kindergarten assistants receive an RM500 allowance a month involving about 11,000 volunteers. “The proposal to increase the allowance is now at the Finance Ministry and we hope to get a positive response,” he added. — Bernama Advertisement.
