I'm usually a lurker here but decided to write something today. My son, in K1, this year is suspected to be a special needs child. When his previous playground informed me to transfer him out, I was devastated. After searching around, we found Zee Schoolhouse and brought him in for assessment. They have infant care, play groups, nursery, kindergarten and intervention programmes.
So we enrolled him in the intervention programmes. After 1 year, he could join the normal Nursery classes.
And now he is at Zee Junior, in K1, as Zee Schoolhouse didn't have K1 classes.

Zee Schoolhouse and Zee Junior are near to each other.
To be honest, I was extremely apprehensive when I first visited the schools as they look run-down and not as spiffy as other schools in the east area. Plus they had a lot of foreign teachers. But I didn't have a choice so we went ahead.

And it's the best decision we've ever made. The teachers are really caring and even whatsapps frequently to update on the situation. In fact, they were the ones who initiated giving me their numbers as I'm not the kind of patent who hound teachers day and night.

When he misses school, his teacher will call or message to ask if he is going to school.
And I believe its coz they also offer intervention programmes to special needs kids, hence the teachers probably picked up some kids-handling skills from the therapists. And all of them are extremely patient.

I do spot checks occasionally and always find the teachers to be engaging the children. Whereas in his previous school, it seems chaotic at times. Food is really nutritious too, with vegetables and even green bean soup for tea-time. His previous had like nuggets and sausages most of the time!

They also have tie-ups with music, abacus, speech/drama specialist, where you just pay extra and and everything is done in school. Don't have to ferry the kids all over the island for enrichment classes.

Their progress report is amazing, extremely personal and can see that the teachers spent a lot of effort on it. It's not just single liners, then they ticked off boxes.

Can consider the schools if you're living in the area.

Yes, I sent my son there a few years back (for daycare) and it was great. The owner (John) takes personal interest in the development and care of the children. The atmosphere is quite good, food was healthy and my son enjoyed his time there. I only stopped because my wife and I eventually wanted to have our son go to bigger kindergarten (St. Hilda's) but we've always held Little Fellow Childcare in high regard.

Hi Parents,

need some advice on a toddler playgroup (18 months). I have visited Pats Katong, Maple bear Katong Point and Shaw at Katong.

Pats : Nice big area, seems to be highly regarded but hearing now some good teachers have left, not sure if its as good as it sounds.
Shaws : Fees are on a higher end, curriculum is theme based, interesting but seems abit random with no learning milestone. Outdoor playground is small and aged. Not sure if its worth the fees?
Maple bear : very good curriculum but somehow execution seems quite bad, no outdoor as well. Reading some MB reviews that kids can come out learning nothing. Seems bizarre as the curriculum seems robust. Cheapest of the lot.

Out of these 3, which one would be most ideal based on your experience?

Thanks for your help!

My child has been there for 3 months and she's loving it. I agree that the principal takes personal interest in the child's interest and needs. My child is very anxious kind and took her a while to settle in and he wasn't pushy with her and that was exactly what she needed. She transited into her new class with ease thereafter and I love the homely feel of the school.

Just in case anyone wants to know more about this childcare. ;) :boogie:

Hi parents, may I know if there is any review on Zee Schoolhouse along Wareham road and Zee Junior along Dunman road? It’s convenient for our 20m old kiddo but couldn’t find any recent reviews on them. The owner seemed friendly enough but not sure about the Teachers.

Any comments and feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!
