“The employers from the private sector have not been forthcoming. We want as many childcare centres to register with us so they can enjoy the incentives,” said Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim during the first “Let’s Get Together” series of informal meetings with the ministry’s stakeholders here yesterday.
Rohani said private firms would get a 10% tax rebate on the initial childcare set-up cost. However, it was previously reported that employers had said they could not sustain the subsequent maintenance of the centres because parents could not afford to pay the fees.
A check with the ministry revealed that nationwide, there were 2,645 community childcare centres, 106 in the public sector, 26 in the private sector and 44 1Malaysia centres or taska.
The “Let’s Get Together” event included officers from foreign embassies and the business community.
