Hi, why dont you make a trip down and speak to the principal? i visited the school recently. The principal was a very nice lady. She will be able to explain to you the school's belief and motto..

Brightstar Child Development Centre at Suntec City-comments?

Postby mum2k » Sun May 09, 2010 2:19 pm

Heard this centre has webcam service for parents to dial in and view their kids while they are in class.
Thus am very tempted to enrol my boy.
But before that, any comments/feedbacks from parents?

Hello Mum2K!

I have called to enquire and visited Brightstar @ Suntec City before and found that they have excellent facilities and security. Yes the webcam is really unusual (I don't think other CCC have this !??) and being able to check on the kid anytime is a really great idea!

Understand from the P this year that they have formed collaboration with the external service providers to do enrichment classes in the afternoons for the children. Furthermore, they only have FULL DAY childcare, not half-day as they have lessons in the afternoon as well after nap time. They are also teaching phonics so there is no need to go for extra-enrichment in this area.

Outdoor activities are either held at the 3rd floor Sky Garden or at Koi Pond.

Why didn't I sign up? Because I am not working at Suntec and they do not have school bus services so it will not be convenient for me to drop-off and pick-up my kid. I sure wish the logistics allows me to put my child there! :love:

If you do not already know, Brightstar is affiliated to the church at Suntec!

Cheers! :lol:

is the premises fully air-con?

If there is an outbreak of HFMD, the spread will be very fast.

Hello Happydaddy,

Yes the place is fully air-con. But perhaps you can ask the CCC whether it has a "germicide" air filtering or not?

As for HFMD, my son's first CCC was not air-con but also outbreak twice already! I think the contact and number of children in close proximity to each other also plays a part....

Sorry ah....I am not from Brightstar just giving my 2 cents worth....

If the air-con spoil? the entire centre will become warmer?

So what if there is filter, how often they change that is the key.

If there is HFMD outbreak, or children with bad cough, it will be 2x worst than no air-con place unless they have a health check corner where they reject any other single kid who cough which i doubt they will do it.

Hi,

My child is attending Brightstar too and glad to see fellow parents here :D

Gardentea, I don't think the school fees increased by double lah... they were charging $800+ and increased the fees to $1k this year so about $200 increase...

Well, I did consider switching my child when they told us last year about the fees increase but the other childcare centres around Suntec are all more expensive than Brightstar and I need a childcare in this area cos easier for me to fetch my child after work. It helps when their closing time is 7.30pm instead of the usual 7pm. The extra 30mins helps alot. Furthermore my child likes the teachers there and I'm generally ok with the school on the whole.
