You're very welcome!

You sure are an early starter, :salute: to you!
Good to recce early and settle in a lesson by
the time the child is about 4yrs old. Just a nice
age to begin fun lessons other than school! :wink:

Bad reception experience with ICR. Didn't like what i saw..... how the
ang moh teacher handle the BIG group of children. Or rather how she
was NOT able to handle them..... and a very messy dismissal time. So
ICR won't get my vote this time. However, different people will have
different experiences, so you should go down and look see for yourself
to gauge. I didn't even want to consider enrolling my kiddies after a
very bad first impression. JMHO.

As for MMI, staff turn-over rate is rather high in a few centres. I am
pro-Montessori... hehee... so my review can be seen somewhat a lil
biased. :lol: So, i would say i like the Montessori Method of teaching
Phonics. :wink:

Okay, seriously now yeah... even with MMI; again... teacher calibre
is important here. Better if you get to speak to the MMI teacher who
will be taking your class b4 U decide 2 take up the programme. There
is also a ruling about having to finish the entire course or U may lose
your deposit. Please find out the exact details of the terms & conditions
when you visit the centre of your choice.

I dun suppose i helped much here with your question but just my
honest inputs, okie. :oops:

Fairly good experience with ICanRead over at Woodlands Civic Centre.
On occasions when there are issues with administrative stuff, I will speak
to the centre manager(s) who usually can resolve the problem pretty
quickly and professionally. Curriculum is fantastic! :D
