Special service arrangements for child care centres and special child care centres

     In light of the latest situation of the COVID-19 epidemic as well as the related arrangements for kindergartens, the Social Welfare Department (SWD) announced today (January 11) that all child care centres and special child care centres are required to implement special service arrangements on or before Friday (January 14) until the Chinese New Year holidays.

     To minimise the chance of infection, the SWD advises members of the public not to take their children to child care centres or special child care centres during the period. However, these centres will remain open to serve service users who have difficulty in taking care of their children. Service users in need may contact the centres or service units concerned in advance.      

     In addition, operators of pre-school rehabilitation services (including special child care centres) may arrange appropriate modes of individual training, such as centre-based training, e-learning and home training, for service users having regard to the epidemic situation, service users' circumstances and their parents' preference during the period. 

     For enquiries, please call the SWD hotline on 2343 2255.
