I was looking for childcare around siglap area. Little Fellow Children does not have many activities as compared to the other childcare at that area. It is a school which focuses on "Strict discipline" and "academic homeworks" (the traditional way). If you only need a school to just take care of/feed your children without giving them too much of exposure (i.e. outing, school concert, baking, speech class), then it might be the place. I guess that is the reason of the lower monthly rate.

Any place but do not think about Raffles Montessori- Still Road. My kids are in K2 and N2 and both have been with the school since playgroup.Teachers are absolutely fantastic and then the Franchise owner decides to not renew/ re contract (we do not know the details) and all the teachers collectively decide to leave to a new franchise opening soon. In all of this drama not even once did the owner decided to even speak with the parents what is going to happen after teachers leave ! What is the plan, none of us even know if the school will exist after this month or now. Above that the current teachers and lessee are paying out of their pockets for the rent so that the students can finish this term un- interrupted. All of us are running helter skelter looking for a new place for kids. The new place where teachers are going is too small. Plus faith in teachers is a bit shaky right now, they collectively decided to leave. Not cool for any parent.

You definitely do not want to be in this kind of situation. And btw the Still Road branch has tried to pull this stunt second time now. So buyer beware !!!!

HI All,

Yup, definitely, anyone whose kid is in any preschool around the east preferably, bedok, upper east coast road can share their kid's preschool experience? Good and caring teachers? Looking to transfer my kid out to a new preschool.

Have you heard about Seeds? I heard it is rather good, really can help your child get ready for P1 if that is what you are looking for..

Hello! Just wondering if anyone has any feedback/reviews on Whizkid Marine Parade? We went for a quick school tour last week and we felt that the school has a more welcoming vibes than the other centres we visited. But will appreciate if we could hear comments about the school from parents of Whizkid here, if any. We're thinking of sending our 19 months old to their full day playgroup. Help this mama, please! Thanks :-)

Sorry to hijack previous posts, i'm looking for infant care in the Bedok or nearby areas. Any experienced parents can share where they had infants at? Thank you!

Understand Siglap Kinderland may have a few slots left last spoke to principal early this week. You may want to check it out. Play ground and open area being spruced up, understand by July. Heard lots of good comment on teachers. Good luck.

My sons are attending whizkid. Elder one since 18 months and now he is 5yo already. The teachers are still the same. There are new ones mainly because of expansion (it used to be only at level 2).

It is not the kind of school with top technology, impressive decorations, but i feel comfortable putting my child there because the teachers are patient and caring, of course also because of the very convenient location. The principle there has been the same since my son's enrolment, and is very helpful and flexible.

There is just so much to say about this school, i'm not sure what is your top priority. There maybe better ones around like shaws, pat's and oddessy but it comes with a price tag, and too westernized for me. Kinderland is too old for me (my husband's preschool, lol). Those at marine parade building, i do not like the fact that they are in a tall block of buildings with limited outdoor space. There are 1 or 2 good ones there as what i heard from other parents) you may want to check out (which i didn't).

I do see parents sending their child to whizkid from other school nearby (twinkle star) and the comment was the teacher changes too frequent.

School plays a part, parents play a big part in bringing up the child. I dont believe there is a perfect school, only how parents work together with the child at home and teachers in school for the best interest of the child.

So i'm good with now although there is definitely room for improvement for the school.

I planning to send my kid for whizkid ifc when sch starts on 10 june. Principal v approachable n responds relatively fast. I never got the chance to speak to the principal for my kid for the rest of the ifc i applied for.

Whatsmore, i volunteer in the grassroots and pple In the area recommended it as an ifc before i popped.

As a first time mom im a little skittish abt sending my bb to ifc at 3 mths but I needed to get back to work soon...

Hi, want to ask any one send kids to Brighton. 1. It's not actually Montessori apporach right? 2. For primary school preparation, is it more towards international school or local school?
