26 Jul 2021 02:25pm
All MOE kindergartens offer teaching of all three Mother Tongue Languages and efforts are underway to expand this in preschools, especially for Malay and Tamil, said Minister of State for Education and Social and Family Development Sun Xueling in Parliament on Monday (Jul 26). She said there are plans to double the provision of Malay and/or Tamil language education to about 350 centres by 2022, but it will take time to train teachers. Ms Sun gave the number of preschools offering Malay or Tamil in heartland planning areas, including specifically in Sengkang, in response to an MP's question.
