Govt urged to support kindergartens
(04-08 18:55)

The legislator representing the education sector, Ip Kin-yuen, said on Tuesday that the government should consider subsidising kindergartens after a Tin Shui Wai pre-school was forced to close after its rent was doubled.
Topkids Anglo-Chinese Kindergarten had offered to pay almost double its current rent of HK$260,000 a month but lost its lease to a rival which is already operating another pre-school in the same area.
Ip said subsidizing kindergartens would prevent this from happening again. --RTHK
