HCMC to build more kindergartens schools

Ho Chi Minh City will allocate over VND 44 billion (US $2 million) to build 20 new preschools.

The city will also provide investment capital for 93 school building projects in 22 districts with VND9.4 billion (US$446,500) for the first phase.

The city will provide over VND 1 trillion to support private kindergartens in accordance to government’s decision on supporting private preschools, said Director of the Department of Finance in HCMC Dao Thi Huong Lan. However, it is a big sum.

Lan petitions indirect supporting methods including providing stimulus packages, land hiring exemptions, and free training for teaching staff in non-public kindergartens.

The Ministry of Education and Training, the Ministry of Finance, and the Ministry of Interior issued a decree to provide financial support to teachers in private preschools. At present, preschools teachers are still not able to receive aid due to unclear policy and registration.
