Star learners Branksome branch

Postby Partyof5 » Thu Nov 18, 2010 9:08 am

Hi all, i am interested in Star Learner branksome branch after viewing their website. However after calling them for inquiry the principal seems impatient and dodgy. She wanted me to view the school only in the afternoon but I insisted to see it in the morning.

She was also hesitant when asked abt the teacher-student ratio.

Anyone has feedback on this school? How abt the other neat by branch in
Boscombe?

Appreciate any feedback from parent.

Thanks very much!

what i can think of at the moment..

Pros
- good principal & teachers & assistants (have seen them carrying the newcomers and walk around the compound to distract crying new kids instead of leaving them crying in a corner)
- in house water play and playground
- so far security OK
- quite bright inside
- uses fan which is better than aircon

Cons
- narrow road to school so driving is headache (dead end so have to x point turn to get out depending on how heavy is the traffic). If walk there by public transport also tiring so its a upslope. Have school bus though
- shows DVD before and after school
- school fees have been increasing for the past few years
- many children (was closed down due to HFMD last year)

Cannot comment much on their syllabus since I only have 1 child so no one else to compare with

If you have not visited the place, you might wan to make an appointment to visit. BTW, there are several CCs around that area.

mum_dad, DVD includes cartoons (my gal quoted mulan, kung fu panda, rio). Not sure if there is any educational shows. Yes, DVD is also shown before class starts at 9am.

Wow..didn't realise that all the CCs are full.

School fees will include gym and akido (not sure if akido is available for N1 and N2). Other enrichment include speech and drama, computer and abacus.

My child has speech delay and I am glad to say that she had improved much after going to child care, as if obedient, alot might have to do with the teacher and peers (so it depends on which class your DD/DS end up in as I do not know all the teachers). So far my DD likes all her teachers, but she did tell me there are other teachers that will shout.

my 2 kids are happy in starlearners@sembawang. Supervisor and teachers are friendly and responsible., to my knowledge, teachers who are teaching both my kids do give impromptu update of my kids progress which i value.

also, the activities, in school and excursions are well plan.

They have a school Facebook page as well to keep parents updated of the children's learning and school activities.

the only concern you might have is probably transport to and fro for your child as they are located in landed properties.

Hi leo,


Thanks for the info given.. Very seldom heard before that videos will be shown before school, I will asked the in-charge when I visit them.

Yes, CC are very crazy nowadays, I have check with certain centers near my house, its full till year 2014. So I cant even placed my child under the waiting list. They told me no point I place in the waiting list, coz all their children will be rolled over to the next year and they are already having very long waiting list.

Its making me headache.. so no point got to find those CC that provides transport and this is how I came to know about Star Learners... :)


Thanks alot ya...
