    PCF to lift pre-school standards

    SINGAPORE'S largest pre-school operator will continue to raise standards and quality at its pre-schools to meet the rising expectations of parents, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong yesterday.

    Speaking at the PAP Community Foundation (PCF) Family Day at Resorts World Sentosa, Mr Lee said PCF will work closely with the Government to raise the quality of kindergarten education while keeping costs affordable.

    PCF has been putting its kindergartens and childcare centres under a centralised system since 2011, to address the issue of uneven standards at different centres.

    So far, more than two thirds of its 353 pre-schools have been consolidated, with the rest to be completed next year.
