Unregistered babysitters, nurseries and childcare centres are urged to register with the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry (KPWKM) and the Department of Social Welfare (JKM) as well as adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOP) to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob when making the call said the government is aware that there are unregistered private nurseries and babysitters operating out there.
The government is worried because these babysitters have no training of any sort and if something bad were to happen, it is out of its knowledge, he added.
“I’m appealing to these private nurseries to register with KPWKM so that training and aid can be provided,” he said during his daily press conference on Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) here today.
Ismail Sabri said babysitters, nurseries and childcare centres are encouraged to download the COVID-19 Infection Prevention Guide, Post-Movement Control Order for the Safety of Childcare Centres from KPWKM or JKM’s websites.
