hi yep, they have lots of hands on even at nursery level lots of worksheets , fo rmy son at k1 got spelling. they do lots of phonics for all levels. they follow routine. they are a ccc. its just that i put my kids halfday coz i sahm. the teachers are good, my kids are not very good eaters so they always make it a point to feed and ensure my kids and every child there finishes the food. which is good in my opinion coz they learn to appreciate food. the supervisor Ms Jas is very good and knowledgeable. u can contact them at 67633637. check out it worth a try. they are montessori so they have their own set of worksheets. u can go donw and visit and check the sch out. also say u wan to take a look at their worksheets, she will show u

hi dor
how long is your son at the centre? they have optional classes like speech & drama and akido, did your son attend? how is it?

agree with you that ms jas is good. most of the time you liaise with jas more or the centre-in-charge, patricia more? i notice that though patricia is the centre-in-charge, she has fewer knowledge on how the centre functions. :|

i deal mostly with jas, patricia is hardly at the front desk to meet parents. they have aikido, abacus, and speech and drama (my son is in speech and drama) but these are not part of their curriculum. u have to pay separately but they are conducted in the centre whereby a specialist teacher from outside will come to the centre to conduct the class. my son has been in this sch since he was 18 mths but of course that time the management was different. this amazing star took over just last dec. i put my dd in this jan only. my kids love their teachers esp my dd she loves jas and her chinese teacher. the cook and cleaning aunties are also very caring from the way my dd hugs them and say goodbye when i fetch her from sch.

thanks for the reply. Jas is only overseeing everything and coach the english teachers who are not montessori certified right? is she the main teacher of any level?
