Hi, I would also like to know more about carpe diem in punggol 21.

My girl likes the place wonder what is the turnover rate of the teachers.

Can anyone advise?

Our son is in Carpe Diem Starlet 120 (Teck Whye - CCK). I understand that they adopt the same learning program thru out every branch. We have to pay a certain fees ($xx X 12mths) other than the usual childcare fees. They claim that even if there is a change of teacher, the replacement can continue the teaching without any disruption, accordingly as planned. He brings homework every Friday - a page each for Maths, Chinese and English.
Other than the philosopy of the childcare, it also depends on the personal caring and character of the teacher-in-charge if he/she can handles and teaches your child.

Hi ongyu, thanks for the reply.

I am concerned about the turnover rate of teachers as i have heard from friends that some centres have constant change of teachers and every few months, the familiar faces disappear and someone new comes to teach.

hi ongyu, i'm contemplating to send my son the starlet 120 branch, cos i'm just staying opposite. however, i don't have much confidence on franchised outlets.

can you give me some insights since you son is studying there?

my boy used to b w/Carpe Diem Punggol 21. at first was impressed by the cmmitment and TLC over at the ctr. but things started to change when one of the teacher quit and then follow by the ctr mgr. both were v good and experience ladies, doh young.

teachers turn over just keep 'shooting up'. after 1yr+, my boy suddenly dun wan to go to sch one day, no matter how hard i tried - talking to the new ctr mgr, teachers in-charge and my boy still doesn't helps.

so boh bian, withdraw him from there and now he's a happy boy! he is with LSH at ocbc ctr.

So things do take a turn ever if the comments or initial experience is good...

I am wondering why there are so few comments on this thread, considering they have many centers. Went to their website and is pretty impressed. They look good on the outside so I wonder with so few comments if they're good on the inside too?
