Hi tinglebellz,

May I know what level your child is currently in? What is the teacher to student ratio? My boy is starting PG in Nov 18.

Is the $200 rebate for as long as the child is in the level?

TYIA!
Hi cruisercruiser,

The $200 rebate is regardless of the level. I have PM you more details :)

hello... how about the enrichment programs for babies and toddlers at the tampines outlet? anyone there? also wondering if the enrichment teachers are same as the childcare teachers?

and anyone can share if the classroom for childcare is open concept like sparkletots or proper classrooms?

school fees of $1.8k is before subsidy? how about price range for add-ons such as enrichment, excursions, concerts if any, etc

Hi shoppingger,

During the school tour, I was told the prechool curriculum consists of the enrichment programs so there is no need for us to enrol in both preschool and enrichment. Last I know was some of the childcare teachers will teach for enrichment as well.

The classrooms are proper classrooms with heavy furnitures like cupboard, shoe shelves, bookshelves as built-in. Each classroom has glass panels as windows so you can look into the classroom. But there is a walkway at the entrance where you have to walk through before reaching the classrooms inside. So it's not possible for parents to take a peep anytime they pass by the school.

Yup, $1.8k is before subsidy. Class photo is $35-$45. No need to add on enrichment since its already in the preschool curriculum. I have not encountered excursions and concerts so unable to advise.

They have Welcome Day (i.e. Open House) for Tampines branch on 12 Oct (coming Sat), Thomson branch on 19 Oct and Katong branch on 2 Nov. Timing is 10am-12pm. Heard that there are savings of up to $3,000 when you enrol during the Welcome Day. There will be further $200 discount for referral.

This school is even being featured in Straits Times on 24 Sep 2019. Perhaps you could visit the school to take a look. Let me know if you need more info.

Hi Shoppinger, I have recently attended a trial class on montessori phonics for my toddler at Lucky Heights. The teachers seems to be very patient and loving. The centre has a complete montessori setup, it is a branch out from My Prep School at Mandarin Gardens (they have another at Kembangan too). I will be enrolling my child soon. You may like to try out. Not sure where you are staying.

Hi itsmeperry,

My child has been with GUG Tampines since mid last year. The classrooms are proper classrooms with heavy furnitures like cupboard, shoe shelves, bookshelves as built-in. Teacher-student ratio is quite low, around 2:7 currently.

Their curriculum have their well-known enrichment programs already incorporated. Teachers are patient and takes in feedback openly. Principal is approachable and children of the teachers and principal are even enrolled with the school. Love their app where we could communicate with the teachers and even principal directly, know upcoming events, and there is a weekly update of your child with photos doing different kind of activities in school. So far my child likes the school, enjoy interacting with classmates and teachers there.

Heard that there is a CNY open house and there will be savings of up to $5,000. They have a referral program where you can get further $200 rebate.

Let me know if you need more info.

new here. hello all. are any of your kids in their PG program? do you find it very stressful for the kid or just about right? we had a tour of the place, we are quite impressed by the curriculum, but were left abit uncertain about the prinicpal. Perhaps we didn't have time for a deeper conversation with her. what do you all think of the principal?
