Preschools to be part of national education system:

PUTRAJAYA: Preschools will be made part of the national education system, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said on Tuesday.

These schools will also be provided with trained English teachers as part of the Government’s effort to improve the standard of English, said Muhyiddin, also the Education Minister.

He did not give a timeframe for this however.

“I have seen many parents send their children to preschool and within one year, they can grasp basic English,” Muhyiddin said in off-the-cuff remarks after meeting about 3,000 teachers at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre.

“So we are working on making preschools part of the national education system.

“We have agreed in principle but are still working out the details,” he added.
