Teacher educating the children at My First Skool (MFS) (70 Telok Blangah Heights) on the COVID-19 vaccine.

The safety and health of our children at MFS is our top priority.

In preparation for our children's first week of school, all MFS centres have been sanitised. Nearly all MFS staff are fully vaccinated, and more than half have also received their booster shots.

The usual routine health checks for symptoms of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease and COVID-19 also greet our children before they start their classes.

With these safety measures in place, our parents are reassured when they send their children to school for the new school year. 

Across the 145 pre-school centres with a total of 22,000 children, 80 per cent of children returned to school on January 3. Only 3 per cent have gone abroad during the year-end holiday.   

"I trust the teachers, and support has been rendered to us, so I have peace of mind," said a parent. Another parent said that the teachers at MFS have done a good job in educating the children on the hygiene precautions they should take during the pandemic thus far.

MFS is looking forward to having outdoor play resume this year. "As children are active by nature, we hope that field trips can resume in 2022," said Thian Ai Ling, General Manager of MFS.

CNA, Channel 8 and Suria Berita visited MFS (70 Telok Blangah Heights) on January 4 and documented the children's first week of school.
