Tots House vs PCF???

Postby jacqueline_han » Thu Jan 05, 2012 10:58 pm

Hi everyone,

I need advise urgently. My son when to Tots House this 3 days n I realise the teachers there lack of patience. Dey left d children to play d toys for half an hr after tt keep d toys, do some coloring after that play toys again for abt 30mins den wash hands hv some snacks after tt singing with no music on. N tt a day for the 1st day of school.

3rd day of school, the teacher very roughly pull my son out after class as we r waiting for him outside n a black face look. This type of situation is making me no more heart to continue with them.

I decided to enroll my son to PCF N1 as he will b turnin 3yrs old in Sept 2012. Anyone can give me so comments on whether go continue or enroll him to PCF as I blive those ppl hv experience at PCF can guide me. Thanks alot!!!

Do what your heart tells you to. A mother's instinct is reliable. But why must it be PCF? No other childcare around?

PCF no good meh? dun get me wrong, I just want to know. been pondering whether to change ds2 from montessori to PCF. just not sure if the move is the right one.

Can really save a LOT if ds2 can go to PCF. Montessori is exp. :(

Why make such a drastic change? I would suggest you to just go to a mid-tier private childcare/ preschool. Personally, I won't send to PCF if can afford it (reasons cannot say :siam: ).

As i don't intend to put him to childcare and only PCF they provide few hrs schooling only. If childcare i still prefer Learning Vision.

Therefore PCF is only choice for me. We do oso go to PCF while we r young cos ONLY choice.

Can share with me thru PM why PCF not good? As i feel the teacher der more lively n friendly.

No need to pm. Feel free to use them if you like PCF since it's only for a few hours.

PCF is good for preparing kids for primary school I guess. They may have improved over the years.
