Re: Edusave Scholarship Award

We got this Edusave certificate of learning achievement in the post yesterday, for DC achieving top 25% of his level. Newbie P1 kid and parents so everyone is excited!

Re: Urgent help: Eton House or Mindchamps?

Bailaowai, I guess it's what you are looking for. For me primary 1 readiness translates to being able to read and write simple sentences, do simple addition and subtraction, maybe spell a little, and write simple Chinese characters. But that's wholly my perception! Any other experiences parents can ...

Re: Rosemary Hall Montessori

Anyone has any reviews about the katong branch? How are the teachers? Place looks a little aged. Spacious and kids looked engaged but there wasn't very much interaction between the kids, they were all doing their own thing.

Re: Pink Tower Montessori

Hmm that doesn't sound like a very good setup? If they are charging fees at that level I would expect better teaching or at least good communication. @ AlanisStorm are your kids still there and wondering if there has been any improvement this year?

Re: Pat's Schoolhouse

In a bit of a dilemma! DD is wait listed for both PSH katong and Etonhouse, but the latter just called to offer a place. Actually prefer PSH as nephews all went there and adjusted well to P1, but the wait list is still very long and admin do not know when there will be a place. Should I continue to ...

Anyone has any recommendations for baby ballet, in the east area? Anyone went to Le Grand (Tampines) before? Spoke to the counter but they seemed very busy and could not get much info from them.
