The pupil-teacher for kindergartens is compiled based on half-day equivalent unit. The figure excludes non-local kindergartens.

After the harmonization of pre-primary services with effect from September 2005, some kindergarten-cum-child care centres do not divide kindergarten pupils into classes by classroom. Pupils are divided into groups in conducting a variety of learning activities in school premises. Hence, the average class size in kindergarten is not available.
