Infrastructure Support Grant (Kindergarten Conversion)
In 2013, ECDA introduced the Kindergarten Conversion Grant (KCG) to support kindergartens that intended to convert to quality and affordable childcare centres. With effect from March 2020, the Infrastructure Support Grant (Kindergarten Conversion) will supersede the KCG. To be eligible, kindergartens must be located in areas where there is demand for child care services but low demand for kindergarten services. Kindergartens must seek in-principle approval from ECDA one year prior to the proposed conversion date, to give parents adequate notice of any changes in operations.
