PETALING JAYA: Private kindergartens registered under the Education Ministry have been given the nod of approval to start operations effective immediately – but only if the location they are in is not or no longer subject to the conditional movement control order (MCO).
“The ministry has decided that private kindergartens under our purview, in states and areas where the conditional MCO has ended, as well as locations not subject to the conditional MCO, will be allowed to resume operations, ” the ministry said in a letter sighted by The Star.
The letter, issued on Nov 26, stated that the contents of the letter were to be made known to all officers in charge of private kindergarten matters, at the ministry, state education departments, and district education offices.
“This notification is effective from the date this letter is issued and is subject to the conditional MCO’s due date of each state or area, which will be decided by the National Security Council (NSC) from time to time, ” said the letter signed by Education deputy director-general (school operation sector) Adzman Talib.
The letter reminded private kindergartens to comply with the ministry’s School Management and Operation In The New Norms Guidelines as well as standard operating procedures set by the NSC and Health Ministry.
