Punggol to get new childcare centre next year


RESIDENTS in Punggol Coris will get a new childcare centre by June next year.

It will be built on a futsal court at Block 269D Compassvale Bow, and will help to alleviate the shortage of childcare places in the area.

Mr Gan Thiam Poh, an MP for Pasir-Ris Punggol GRC, told reporters at a grassroots event on Sunday that the current childcare centre has been full since last year.

The new facility will provide places for 170 children from the age of 18 months to 6 years.
