School-based SCCs constitute an important pillar in our holistic support for students. They provide an environment which is safe, structured and conducive for rest and learning after school hours.
School-based SCC Programme
The SCC programmes are student-centric, age appropriate, and provide opportunities for students to develop social and emotional competencies and foster positive relationships. In addition, the after-school care support provided for families helps to strengthen home-school partnerships.
How to apply?
Parents may approach their child’s school to find out about application procedures and admission criteria of the school-based SCC. For Primary One students, schools will also share details of the school-based SCC during orientation, prior to start of the academic year.
Which schools have SCCs?
The Ministry of Education (MOE) has been working with primary schools to set up school-based Student Care Centres (SCCs). As of July 2016, 135 primary schools have SCCs. All primary schools are expected to have SCCs by the end of 2020. The list of school-based SCCs can be found here.
School-based SCC Fees
As fees vary across the SCCs, parents may want to approach the schools you are interested in for more information.
Support for School-based SCC Fees
To ensure affordability for children from low-income families, students eligible for the Student Care Fee Assistance (SCFA) scheme administered by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) can receive up to 98% subsidy of the monthly fees.
Application forms for SCFA are available at the school-based SCC.
