Thanks for yr comments. Can u briefly describe what are the curriculum like & do they include any play approach in their program? Will there be any organisation of field trips or excursions? Kindly advise. Thanks!

i only accompanied my girl for the 1st day and these are what I observed.

they start their day playing with some montessori based toys, then they will have story telling session. After which, they go for lessons (everyday there will be different subject), then it will be snack time. Followed by lessons again, singing...

I do see my girl bring back worksheets and crafts work they do in school. My girl is only 2+ so I guess not too much of lessons....

Overall, am quite please with the school. Principle / teacher are also helpful and friendly whenever I call up the school.

During my visit to this centre for a trial session, I find the place quite nice and the staff are very helpful.

My only concern is they do not have their own toilet and are using the building toilet shared by the public.
