San Lorenzo Montessori Preschool

Postby Tika » Tue Sep 07, 2010 7:24 pm

Went to have a look. they are located at waringin road (off chai chee road) or something.

http://www.slmontessori.com

really love their bright cheery environment. we dropped by without an appointment (on purpose). we were surprised to be greeted by 4 smiling teachers. of ALL the montessori preschools we've been to, this is the ONLY school with teachers who bothered to SMILE at us. and they actually bothered to play with our two girls while we spoke to the playgroup teacher. when it was time to leave, my 2 year old was actually reluctant to go. drastic difference from the other preschools we dragged her to.

those other montessori preschools we went to were either too rigid/uppety class or standoffish. which was upsetting for us because we are friendly, on the ball kind of parents. :(

Anyone else can recommend montessori preschools in siglap/tampines/simei/parade/pasir ris area? Not MMI please.

Thank you in advance.

Visited a couple of years ago. Took a trial lesson, am not very impressed. Seem a little chaotic and disorganised in lesson plan & pace.

Perhaps they have improved since then :scratchhead:

thank you so much for sharing. Maybe it's a gd idea to go for trial first before deciding. However I never knew Montessori preschools (those that touch on wrksheets only later in k2, not by choice) allow trial lessons. Wouldn't it disrupt the natural process of learning for the children cos a stranger is ard?

but nonetheless, I shall ask San Lorenzo for a trial. Hopefully they have improved.
