SINGAPORE: AWARE has welcomed Budget 2011, saying it is glad to see the greater support for early childhood education and caregiving services. It said this would go some ways towards addressing income inequalities. However, it noted that there is no mention of increased infant care or after-school or before-school care facilities.

AWARE said it hoped these will be elaborated upon during the Committee of Supply debate.
