Hi Jennifer,

Cheers

My 3yo daughter is in a small little establishment in Katong Mall called Forever Education. It's a tiny outfit - and that's just the way I like it because they are flexible and offer personal attention to each child. It's pretty much like Berries, using children's songs distilled into Chinese verses and the kids are taught to recognize the characters. No hypy involved at all.

Thanks all for the warm welcome.

At present, my elder boy is with Modular Education @ Bt Timah Plaza. Prob is there were only 2 children when we started after the Jun hols. The other classmate has dropped out midway, leaving only my boy now. The centre has agreed to continue for next term on a 1-1 basis at no extra charge(which I am very grateful for) even though they do not have a policy for such arrangement (ie 1-1).

Modular Education specialises in Maths and English. The Chinese dept is outsourced to an agency. I met the person in charge during the open house and she told me she is from a centre specialising in Chinese located in Thomson Plaza.

My boy's Chinese has improved greatly as the school materials (HC) is repeated again at the tuition centre in greater details. His grades in tingxie has gone up from 50-60+ to 70-80+.

I hv heard that Berries is for young children and Tien Hsia for upper primary. But I doubt my boy would ever want to attend Tien Hsia once he knows about their weekly spelling list :lol: He does not like the subject.

I am now thinking of dropping HC next year so that he concentrates on NC for PSLE. It's so difficult to get him to self study for NC too.

As for the younger boy, he is more playful. So I think a play environment would suit him. He's not the sit down to do guy.

Btw do we need to pay for trial lesson?

Been busy this week, hv yet to explore this forum extensively :oops:

TIA your advices.
