Urgent help: Eton House or Mindchamps?

Postby pink shoes » Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:31 am

Hi, parents. I am looking for a preschool for my daughter. We finally came down with two options: Mindchamps or Eton House, but we can't really decide between the two. Please help. I just moved to Singapore and do not know much information on these two schools. We did visit bunch of preschools and these two are the one that we think are the best among all. Need your insights please.

Hi Pink Shoes,

Where do you stay? I've visited both centres before and MindChamps is still my first choice. Like the spacious and clean environment, bilingual teaching and various enrichment programs all included. My son is now in the N1 class in the Toa Payoh centre, pretty good so far. :)

Hi Pinkshoes,

Same as Wanyee, I have visited both centres before. I have not signed up for either but I decided against Etonhouse. The reason being when I reviewed the Etonhouse curriculum and approach (inquiry based), I feel the approach is more suitable if I intend to enrol my child in an International School at later stage. However, our plans for our child is to enrol him in local Primary School hence Etonhouse did not really meet our needs. Later on, I shortlisted, Pats and Mindchamps.

We are still reviewing but probbaly will drop Pat's due to distance and logistics.

We're in the same boat! Will make a decision about N1 2014 enrollment after we visit both schools which are near us, thankfully. Will let you know what we decide and why :)
Oh, also, we do intend to enrol our boy in local school, esp. as the IB curriculum is offered locally nowadays

Hi Lovewonder

Sure. My older dd attended Etonhouse since she was 18mths old.
The teachers were very dedicated. I would say she was well taken care.
They did toilet training, taught her manners, taught how to ride a
tricycle, bicycle, etc, etc.

I did visit a few other preschools, but I couldnt find one to replace Eton.
So I will stick with Etonhouse. : )
