Some parents think that Zee’s mainstream cirruculum does not adequately prepare their children for primary school. My friends to,d me that their kids have been exposed to number bonds, simple fractions, composition and comprehension in K2.
While Zee does teach additions, subtractions, composition and comprehension but these are at slower pace and simple worksheets.

It depends on what you want for your child. For me, I was alright with it, especially when my kid enjoyed school and the teachers are really caring.
I’m not in a hurry to put him off school and my decision was proven right when during his primary school orientation, the principal kept stressing on not sending kids to tuition because kids get rowdy and distracted in class when they have already learned the syllabus outside.

And in the 4 years, my son was there, they had the same team of teachers, low turnover rate as compared to his previous school, the teachers change every few months.
Zee also had the odd case of HFMD occasionally but never had to shut down as the school is quick to react. In his previous school, they shut down twice,each time for 2 weeks within 1 year.

Amy overall experience with Zee has been good, hence will recommend it if you like the more relax pacing.

Recognising that some kids just learn a little differently, lessons are customised and adapted to each child’s individual needs to help them achieve independence and academic success. You can check Bright Path Preschool..
