ooo...GUG is not cheap and is pretty out of the way for me.
I had enrolled my boy in BPMCK after good reviews of their kindergarten programme. This is the first intake of their PreN programme though.
As they are only taking in todd from 30mths onwards, my boy will only start class during Term 3. Anyway, it is good too cos the teachers then will be able to spend more time with him when he starts class as a portion of the class students had already started in term 1 or 2. He sure needs that extra attention - during the orientation 3 days back, he was the only kid walking around and around the hall while the rest of the kiddos sat quietly with their parents :oops: .
Meanwhile, he will just spend his time at home with me...pretty much the same for the past 2 years. 8)

ya...gug is quite fair for me too. i stay in the west :)

i was reluctant to change school initially cos the school is quite advance. at 2.5 years old, the teachers taught them writing and my son learn to spell his own name.

but now i got no choice cos i have to handle my daughter, work and my domestic help leaving in april so got to make adjustments lor. :(

if your boy enjoys schooling there, maybe you can explore school bus option?
