Besides, children will be taught words and numbers.
The City has said it will provide enough teachers for pre-schools and offer them competitive salaries.
A sum of VND2.7 trillion (US$130.7 million) will be earmarked for three tasks: building class and other rooms in pre-schools; buying equipment, teaching aids, and toys; and training 4,732 teachers.
By 2013 kindergarten students will stay in school the whole day have a new curriculum.
The City People’s Committee is considering building more kindergartens with qualified teachers and other supervisory staff near industrial parks and export processing zones to meet workers’ needs.
