What are the Differences Between Childcare (Singaporean), Childcare (Foreigner), and Extended Childcare Leaves

Introduction

All three leave types are MOM-mandated leaves. Each of the staff is entitled to a particular leave type, depending on the length of service of the staff, and the age and citizenship of the child. Below are the definitions and examples for each:

Childcare (Foreigner)*: 2 days for non-Singaporean child 7 years and below

Childcare (Singaporean)*:  6 days for Singaporean child 7 years and below

Extended Childcare Leave*:  2 days for Singaporean child between 8-12 years old

 

Note: For the appropriate CCL to appear on the users' end, child details of the staff need to be completed on the Leave>Administration>Child Details page. Please make sure to indicate if the child is Singaporean or Non-Singaporean under the column Pro-Family Leave. If ticked, Singaporean, if unticked, non-Singaporean.

Examples:

  • The staff has a 5-year-old Singaporean child - the staff will be entitled to 6 days of Childcare (Singaporean) Leave
  • The staff has a 5-year-old non-Singaporean child - the staff will be entitled to 2 days of Childcare (Foreigner) Leave
  • The staff has a 9-year-old Singaporean child - the staff will be entitled to 2 days of Extended Childcare Leave
  • The staff has a 9-year-old non-Singaporean child - the staff will not be entitled to any child-related leave type anymore
