Original Title: Childfirst/Cheri Hearts/LittleSkoolHouse/MyFirstSchool/Eton

Hi All, I am staying at Mountbatten, and i do have a few choices for my boy, whom i will be sending him to childcare when he turns 18 months (so that i can go back to work).

However, i have the following childcare centres which i dont know which is better, can anyone give me their reviews or comments on this? Many many thanks!

1. ChildFirst
2. Little Skool House
3. Cheri Hearts
4. My First School (NTUC)
5. Eton (717 Mountbatten Rd)

Thanks alot

If school fees is not a concern, you may want to consider childfirst and Eton. They are premium CCs.

Both of these schools, the fees are about $1k after subsidy.

How about LSH, MFS and Cheri? which one is better?

Thx Thx

MFS - afordable CC, so you can't expect top quality teachers

LSH - one category up compare to MFS and they belong to the same group.

Cherie Heart - should be comparable with LSH

Actually it depends on what is your expectation as these CCs caters differently.

High school fees - you can expect to see highly qualified teachers but they may not be as compassionate as those you see at affordable CCs. So there is always a pros and cons.

Just my opinion though.

That's what I have mentioned, if fees is not a concerned, you may want to consider the eton or childfirst.

For me, though i have the same expectation as you, someone to take good care of my kid and at the same time, he can enjoy and learn as he moves on, i cant afford the premium range lor...:(

have you tried going to the school and take a look? Talk to the teachers to find out more about the school and the teachers

Personally, I like LSH more than MFS. the rest of those mentioned, i have not seen the school before

Hi,
Do try to have a look at Brighton Montessori further down Fort road if you have the time.
My son had fun when he was there and was well prepared for P1..

LSH or Cherie Hearts or MFS all sama sama but environment is very important.

get a childcare centre with playground, it really make their day happy after a long day of study.

so far, hard to find a centre with comprehensive playground exclusive for the CC kids only.
