Original Title: Columbus child development centre, upper east coast road

Anybody got any commend on Columbus child development centre located in upper east coast road? informations in their website are quite impressive. They got native speaking teacher from the UK, Montessori programme, and lots of enrichment programmes which dont need to pay extra (including in the school fee). and the fee for K1 is about 980+.

is this the one at 440A Upper East Coast Road?
I thought I saw the name as Alphabet, and not Columbus?
I am interested to know more reviews. Impressive space for kids.

I went down to check out, and the school has changed its name to Alphabet. Impressive space, but disappointing (personal view).
It;s a big space internally divided into sections, where many ( i really mean, MANY) kids are group in N1, N2 etc.. and you can imagine the noises.
I wonder how the kids can concentrate without a proper partition.
Also the principal didn't seem proactive. She didn't explain much to me, except Fees and basic program. Even after i posted questions, she didn't elaborate and keeps showing me the fees. Hmmm...
Also when I stepped inside, it was very sandy, the principal noticed it herself, and told me (without me asking) "ohh.. its quite sandy, because the kids just played outside for sandplay."
I didn't probe further except thinking to myself, what happened to their cleaner?
