Kindergarteners in Hanoi will come back to school next week under the capital city's new decision after a nearly-one-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Deputy chairman of the People’s Committee of Hanoi Chu Xuan Dung signed on Friday afternoon an official decision to allow kindergarteners in all of the capital’s 30 districts and towns to resume direct class attendance from April 13.

Most parents said they were willing to bring their children back to preschools, according to the municipal Department of Education and Training’s survey.

The committee asked the local education department to coordinate with the health department to regularly update and follow related regulations to ensure COVID-19 prevention and control at schools. 

Local authorities of districts and towns are entrusted with increasing supervision and inspection over the implementation of COVID-19 prevention and control measures at schools. 

Hanoi is the last locality among 63 provinces and cities nationwide to allow kindergartens to resume in-person learning.

City schools have reopened to all students from first to sixth grades on April 6, with the rate of students returning reaching 94 percent, according to the education department.

The number of new COVID-19 cases has kept dropping in the capital, with 2,897 new infections recorded on Friday, only a fraction of the peak in March.

Vietnam is preparing to inoculate children from five to under 12 years old in the second week of April with Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines whereas the first batch of Moderna vaccines for children is expected to be delivered to the country on May 10.
