I'd like to give my feedback about the mfs at Telok Blangah Heights. The infant care is quite good the teachers and good and care about the children and communicate often with the parents to give feedback. The feedback book is filled up every day with accurate information I'm confident that my child is well taken care of. But the toddler class I feel is not that great, so I'm thinking of looking elsewhere..

Was wondering if anyone has any feedback about Children's Cove behind Queenstown library? I searched in this forum but couldn't find anything .

Just want to share my experience and raise awareness to whoever considering to send their children to this school.

I enrolled my Daughter to this school 2 years ago and within this time span, I moved her to a total of 4 different outlets hoping that they may be better but I was so wrong.

To think that sending your children to a private preschool may bring you more value, learning and development for your child, think again for this school as my child was mostly playing all the time and could not even get her basics right. It gets worse.

The Montessori is just a gimmick to earn more money for the school. I am not sure if the teachers are even properly trained as I feel they are very unprofessional and clueless, wonder how are they even qualified to be Teachers in the first place?

I had even witnessed an incident where officers came down for certain checks, and a few classes were brought elsewhere out of the office to “hide”. Believe they could be unlicensed or had no carts. This was my last straw, to have a school doing such acts and shortchanging my child.

Isabelle and Danielle (owner and principal of the school) had always tried comforting me by saying that my child was in good hands, my foot. Just trying to make easy money is what both of them are good at. They are salespeople, the kinds you meet when engaging an ID or buying a secondhand car. All promises are made beforehand, and until you have made your purchase, that’s when your worst nightmare comes.

Conclusion, if you want to bring your children here, think twice. For the fees you are paying, I believe there are better schools out there. Even government schools are better in my opinion. Anyone has the same thoughts, feel the strong need to share this to everyone.

Does any parents have any first hand experience with Maple Bear Alexandra (Alexis) or Pat's Schoolhouse Tanglin or MindChamps PreSchool @ Tanglin?? I am pondering which one to choose for my daughter N1.

Hi,

I'm not sure about Maplebear Alexandra, my boy attends MapleBear Havelock in the Annexe building of Furama Riverfront hotel.

It's a big centre with big indoor playground, good & clean facilities, teachers are very caring & it's directly managed by Mrs Pat Koh. My boy's very happy there, he started when they opened 3 years ago. Balanced emphasis on academics & play. It's not too far away from the Alexandra centre, you may wish to call them for a school visit.

- Bloomberry
- Zion Babies (Depot Rd)
- Appleland Playhouse (Depot Rd)
- Cherie Hearts (Depot Rd or HBF)

Thank you!
