JOHOR BARU - The Education Ministry does not plan to impose a ceiling on the fees charged by pre-schools nationwide.
Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said imposing a ceiling would hinder business for the pre-schools.
"Parents who want to give their children the best education possible should be able to afford it," he said.
Dr Wee added that pre-schools followed a syllabus set by the ministry. Additional subjects offered by a pre-school would need approval.
"If a kindergarten charges extra because of additional subjects, then it will be considered justifiable," he told reporters at a press conference after a working visit to SRJK(C) Foon Yew Two here yesterday.
