Fulfill the '1km residential address from school' requirement

Importance of Staying 1km from Primary School in P1 Registration

preschool singapore expert

When there is balloting in Phase 2B or Phase 2C for a school's Primary 1 registration, priority is given to Singaporeans or Permenant Residents residing near to the school. Hence it is common for Singapore parents to purchase or rent a property in order to fulfill this mandate requirement.

Distance Affects Priority Admission in P1 Balloting

We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to stay 1km from a school inorder to be given priority in the P1 Registration! Without the address, fulfilling the requirements in Phase 2B is fruitless.
Please note down the timeline we've consolidated below so that you do not miss the opportunity to acquire that desired home before the registration exercise which usually takes place in June/ Jul of the year prior to the year your child turns 7.

Important Timeline!

If you are: Looking for a New Launch:
New Launches require a longer leadtime before the TOP date. If you are looking for a new home near your school, start your house search at least 4 years before your child’s registration year (the June before he/ she turns 7)!

If you are: Looking for Resale Homes:
Start your house search 1 year before your child’s registration year (the June before he/ she turns 7).

If you are: Looking to Rent:
Start your house search 6 months before your child’s registration year (the June before he/ she turns 7).
