currently, my boy doesn't attend any enrichment course. my boy now attends to a full day CCC at Hougang (Cambridge Learning Centre), any comments on this? once a week, the CCC engaged ACTs for speech & drama lesson which I've paid for too. I thought since he's already on full day programme from Mon to Fri should be more than enough for him but find him a bit loss (ie dun know what to do during his free time in the evenings and weekends) he will draw a bit then ask for my attn to play. dun like to write :(
He tried GUG before. seems to like it. may want to go back and check out their weekend programmes again.

Hi,

I've recently placed my kid (N2) in Cambridge Learning Centre in Hougang. They have 2 outlet there. any comments? Been searching around, found this CCC, small with big outdoor area. 1 form teacher with 12kids, is the ratio too big?

My nephew is with Cambridge (novena branch) and they do have very tough spelling and tingxie for K2. they have quite a fair bit on add-ons enrichment too. if the kid is in childcare full day, its good to spend the 'free' weekend and evenings to just play with them. :)
maybe you wanna look at swimming courses for him?

12 is pretty good wat. My girl in Kinderland has 15 kids in her class - the max allowed by the MCYS. That's the reason why we're thinking of switching her to Schoolhouse by the bay.

Thanks Chiefkiasu,

feel more at ease after your comments :lol:
nearby my son's CCC is Pat Schoolhouse..but price too steep to pay for the branding, so settle with Cambridge (about 600/mth with speech and drama once a week). The CCC provides one outing for the kids every month which I thought is quite good to let the kids expose to outdoor instead of cooping in the centre everyday.

my boy class also 15 pax. use to be much lower. Outing once a week is pretty good! Ours is 4 times a year.

Any good childcare centres near sengkang compasspoint?

We are urgently looking for a childcare centre at sengkang, preferably near compasspoint but most of them are fully booked.

Anyone heard of Agape or Faith Educare?

I heard Agape is not very good. Teachers there are first. I had a friend who withdrew her son from the school. Faith Educare has quite good comments. You can find reviews about them on the internet.

However, don't go to Kiddy Academy at Compassvale Link, many bad reviews about them. MMI Sengkang too!

Sorry, what I had meant is "Teachers there are fierce", not "first"

Thanks Amanda.

I ever heard the teachers at Agape are fierce. We are not sending my child there cos Agape has increased their fees by $200!

You have friends whom tried MMI, the school looks good, though I saw many bad comments on the internet too. There is another new Montessori at Sengkang called Chartered. Ever heard of that?
