The Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) has introduced a new child care Registration Management System (RMS) that can bring greater convenience to both parents and child care operators.
The system enables parents to search for suitable child care centres for their children and indicate interest to register at their preferred centres online. The system also helps child care centres better manage registrations. Parents can register their interest in up to 5 centres at a time.
Here is an example:.
So far, 250 of the 1,200 childcare centres in Singapore are already using the system. As more parents and centres use the system, it will provide ECDA with more comprehensive demand and supply information which helps in the planning of child care capacity.
In addition, over the next few months, ECDA will facilitate the development of another 16 child care centres, which will provide an additional 1,600 child care places. This is the second batch of sites to be developed by the Anchor Operators (AOPs) since the start of the Enhanced AOP Scheme in January 2014.
The centres are expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2015. Parents, tell us what you think below of this new online service please.
