Hi,
I am new to this forum.
Has anyone heard of the Discovery Garden?
As I am considering of putting my girl there.
Any ideas if it is good?

Hi jloh11,

I went to view it yesterday and i really like the environment. All the teachers are very young and friendly too. But worries young teacher tends to be impatient. Did u go for their trial class? I will be enrolling for pg too. hope to have more feed back on this cc.

Hi both:

My 2 girls just started at the school this week. I like the school environment as it is big and yet single storey with lots of outdoor space. The school uses aircon only when the kids are napping and actively encourages outdoor play.

I've known Sophie the owner for a few years as my older boy was in her previous childcare in Hougang. She is a good manager and is very well-respected by the teachers, and runs her childcare well. She also values communication with parents. In the previous childcare, they prepared the kids very well for P1, which I think is important.

So it's quite a no-brainer for me to switch my girls there now that Sophie has finally opened her dream school.... Hope to see you around!

Which class?

I still see a few crying kids over the past 2 days amongst the younger age groups. I'm sure it'll improve soon. Being a brand new childcare, the school has many children that are entering a childcare for the rest first time. It may take several weeks...

Hi,
ya, I had already put my girl there since July. She is ok so far, and she likes to go there.
She is in playground too.
I didn't went for the trial, I just went there 2~3 times to enquiry, then decided to enrol her there. As I prefer non-aircon and like the open space.
So far the teachers are ok, and active hand-on with the kids.
