Any feedback on Kim Keat Christian church Kindergartens located at Beng Wan Road opposite St Michael Road and Learning Vision @ KK Hospital? How are the teachers and curriculum sufficient for P1 preparation?

I welcome other Childcare or Kindergarten feedback for the area of Whampoa, Kallang, Boon Keng.

At Whompoa, think there are
1) Cherie Hearts @Kim Keat House
2) My First Skool @85 Whampoa Drive
3) some Ci You and Tai Pei CCCs

If you are willing to stretch further, there are 2 Learning Visions @Novena and Cambridge near Novena Sq. Of course, there are some really premium ones like Eton and Pat's.

Should visit them and see which one meets ur reqds better

If you can afford it and there's place in pat's i would recommend it!

The others not to sure you can check it out and see which you are most comfortable with :)

Thank you for all your replies. Really appreciate it!

I have narrowed it down to the following three and can't really decide. Any recommendation which one is better in terms of quality and the teachers' competence.

Learning Vision ( United Square)
Pat's School house at Beckley
Thomson Road Baptist Church Kindergarten
