Hi everyone, Im currently doing a marketing survey for school to find out parents opinions on childcare adopting catering services to provide meals for their child. Really hope that all of u could spare just 5mins to do this 6 qns survey!

The most important factors to prove the center is confident good:
1. Non close door so all parents can see through the window what was going on. This also prevent teacher misconduct on innocent children and to let parent judge center's quality. If it is closed door, this means the center has something very wrong going on.
2. No TV because some teacher tend to short cut using tv to teach or even make herself free.
3. Security that no outsiders or parents can enter into the center unattended.
4. Teacher/assistance and student ratio so the adults can handle the children well.
5. Proper English communication.

The rest are just useless because you have to be 24/7 or worked with them to find out.

Depending on which cc you go to but according to ECDA, it should be 1 teacher to 12 students for N1 and 1 teacher to 15 students in N2.

I would think the best is to observe the centre based on the criteria as stated by the parents in this thread. One may answer your questions very well, so best is to check whether what they say is consistent with what they do.

Had an unpleasant experience with Amazing Star Montessori House. All I can say is, make sure the childcare has cctv at assembly area and classrooms. That was the mistake I made- I didn't ask if the centre has cctv.
