Hi mummies

Ive recently moved to Siglap and am interested to know more about the nearby childcare centres for my dd.

Little Skool House Fidelio is very near my place, do any of you have any experience to share about this cc?

Your comments are much appreciated! TIA! :smile:

Hi Shabaka mummy, I see that you are new to the forum too. Just like me!

I'm a SAHM living in Siglap. Welcome to Siglap! I thought LSH was sold to Cheriehearts?

Hi scramble!

Thanks for your reply! Was starting to think I'll be pretty lonely here in Siglap! :p
Maybe everyone's away for the long weekend...

Cherie Hearts? Isn't that the chain of childcares? Are they going to buy over all ths LSH then? Do you have any additional info?

By the way how many kids do you have? :)

I have a girlfren who enrolls her DD there. She told me the centre is bought over by a new operator and the parents were told to either stay with them or look for alternatives. I guess she wasn’t too please on the way the principal delivered the message. :mad: :mad: :mad:

Hi Pearlyshell, thanks for the info! Does your fren know who the new operator is? Will the philosophy and curriculum be continued?

Hi Shabaka, I'm not so sure. You may want to call the centre and check with them directly. :smile:

Hi PS, you are right. I called the school and decided to drop by to check it out. The principal was hush hush about the change. I guess no one is certain whats happening.  But I bumped into a parent on my way out.  He mentioned that the new operator’s name is twinkle tots or something. I tried googling but don’t seem to be able to find anything.  There are a lot of references about this school in jalan saudara ku.

Hi Shabaka, different parents have different needs depending on their circumstances. Since this is a forum for sharing, I’ll share my experience and hopefully you dun find me long-winded...

Twinklekidz used to be a kindergarten in Jalan Saudara Ku. My dd was there last year. It was a very small setup as the school only has 2 small classrooms.

Apparently the operator and the owner of the school are not the same. There were some disagreements between them and the owner suddenly decided to stop the operation. We were not sure what happened but judging from what other mummies mentioned here about LSH, transparency may have been the issue with TK owner.

Anyway, through the constant parent/school communications, we became very good frens with the operator of TK. She decided to setup a school on her own. She managed to retain all teachers and her teaching philosophy remains the same. Most of us parents decided to stay with her as we did not want to create too many changes in our kids’ learning environment. The school has changed its name to Two By Two Schoolhouse at the same location in Jalan Saudara Ku.

The school has since moved to Eastgate and currently occupies the location where WhiteLodge used to be. Breaking away from the owner of TK seems to give the school to freedom to expand their curriculum. They are now able to offer kindergarten classes in the morning, and enrichment classes in the afternoon, which suits me very well.
