Special Student Care Centres (SSCC)

Special Student Care Centres (SSCCs) offer subsidised before and after school care services for students with special needs aged 7 to 18.

Lowered Special Student Care Centre (SSCCs) fee caps

The Ministry of Social and Family Development has announced plans to lower the Special Student Care Centre fee caps for middle-income families. These families will see their out-of-pocket expenses reduced by up to 40%.


Overview

Special Student Care Centres (SSCCs) provide before and after school care services to Special Education (SPED) school-going students with disabilities aged 7 to 18.

The care services could also include educational support, social and life skills for independent living.

Students who are 7 to 18 years old can apply to enroll in an SSCC and may be eligible for the ComCare Student Subsidies scheme, also known as the Student Care Fee Assistance (SCFA).

To apply, the student must be:
