Precautionary Measures for COVID-19

MSF has been stepping up precautions to protect our preschool community and other vulnerable groups.  

Update as of 19 May:

Preschools and Early Intervention (EI) centres will start to reopen from 2 June 2020, to allow young children to continue learning and to support parents as they return to work. The centres will reopen in phases, emphasising safety and minimising the risk of transmission.

• Kindergarten 1 and Kindergarten 2 children may return from 2 June 2020

• Nursery 1 and Nursery 2 children may return from 8 June 2020

• Infant Care and Playgroup children may return from 10 June 2020

EI centres providing the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) and centres on the Pilot for Private Intervention Providers (PPIP) scheme will also reopen from 2 June 2020 in phases, starting with in-person intervention for children with higher needs, or who are only attending EI centres.

You can find more details in our latest advisories and announcements:
