hi j2mum,

I went to the childcare on Sat but no children only teachers. The difference from other childcare that it is not an open concept. I find it is clean and neat. The kitchen is on a different floor which is good too.

The teacher show me the timetables. Programmes quite interesting... computer class in eng & chinese,cookery, music & movement,dance class, water play, creative workshop, manipulative play, dough play, blocks corner, dress up centre.

Hmm... still need to brush teeth after lunch. hahahaha. But their meals are vegetarian. Forgot to ask the teacher whether do they serve egg.

They hv homework every fri.. good also which we know wat they hv learn

So hw is yr veiwing...? Do u think intend to enrol yr kid there?

Yaokel,

where do u stay? How old is your child?

Yes, I went to visit them last Friday. I brot my ger along. Like u said, the place is very clean and neat. I find the kids there very polite and orderly. Kids are study in a very calming environment. The programme shld be quite standard but I am more concern of them preparing the kids for Primary One as I wanna found a place where they can prepare my ger for Pri school education. Overall, I like it very much. As I am also sending my son in, and luckily they are willing to take in my son who is still on diaper.

I asked my daughter and she told me she wanna go to the CC.
I will be doing the adminission soon, after I sent in the withdrawal letter to my daughter current kindergarten.

However, my kids will only start in Mid Nov as I have already paid her kindergarten school fee. Will let my daughter go for full day immediately but will let my son go for half day then see how he is adapting and transit over to full day in Dec.

Hi J2mum,

I'm staying at King Geroge's Ave (Near Lavender MRT) and my office is at Textile Centre.

Ya... I have to 2 girls. Elder girl borns in 2004 and younger one at 2006. I'm going to enrol both. hmm.. Shd be admit together on 18 Nov after my ger finish her current school. I dont' think both my gers can adapt to it so fast. Haiz.. I very scared.

U can send her for peparation for P1 courses on weekend.

I just called them and check if they can bottle fed on milk.. She said no for N2 class onwards.. I scared my elder cant sleep.

Oh then we are enroling the same time. I am planning to send them both in 17 Nov. Hey both of my kids both in the same yr.
My ger also in 2004 and she is a January bb. My son in 2006 and is a July bb.

I am more worry abt my son, he needs his smelly bloster and pacifier. I hope going to CC will wean him off his pacifier.

Althot both of my kids need to have milk before nap but I think my ger is ok not to have milk before nap but will ask the teacher to make milk for my son instead.

Did u bring your ger to view the CC?

Both my girls need to carry their mickey mouse which the centre doesnt allow. So Bo pian .. just let them go.. I dun hv other choices. I think bloster is allowed.
