NTUC’s My First Skool will be raising school fees at its childcare centres.

This comes barely a week since the PAP Community Foundation announced it would increase school fees at its childcare centres.

The PCF is Singapore’s largest childcare operator, followed by NTUC.

NTUC says it will increase fees by an average of S$34 per month for childcare next year, while infant care fees will go up by S$14 per month.

Nursery classes will see the largest fee increase of S$69.02.

This fee hike brings monthly fees for toddler, playgroup and nursery classes to S$743.12, inclusive of GST.

Fees for K1 and K2 classes will increase to S$678.31.

My First Skool has in the past said that annual fee increases are necessary to improve the quality of their programmes and keep up with rising operating costs.

To help parents adjust to the fees, it will give parents a rebate on the increase from January to March 2016.

This is similar to measures by PCF, which will provide rebates for six months to affected Singaporean and Permanent-Resident parents.
