Additional seats eyed at nurseries

SHANGHAI will build 150 new kindergartens with both nursing and education functions this year and 200 more next year, city’s education authority said yesterday.

According to the Shanghai Education Commission, the city now has 917 nursing facilities, which can serve about 14,000 children under 3 years old.

“We will increase 10,000 seats at nurseries this year and next to benefit more children under 3,” Wang Ping, the commission director, told a radio program.

In the past two years, the government planned to build 50 new affordable nurseries each year, but had built 109 in total.

He said in the next five years, the city will also set up more parenting guidance centers to enable families to get professional help in taking care of children in areas within 15 minutes of travel from home.

As Shanghai builds “five new towns” in the districts of Jiading, Qingpu, Songjiang and Fengxian and Nanhui in the Pudong New Area, Wang said authorities will introduce more high-quality education resources in these areas based on their development plans and population changes.

“For example, we will continue to support development of the existing outstanding high schools, such as the Jiading No. 1 High School, Qingpu Senior High School, Songjiang No. 2 High School and Fengxian High School, as well as the Jiading branch of the High School Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the Qingpu branch of the High School Affiliated to Fudan University.”
