If distance isn't a factor, my personal choice is GUG :)

I think it depends what you're looking for. The curriculum at Growing up gifted is all rounded and really gives children a very good education. I've compared GUG with other schools and at the end of the day, we still feel it is the best! My elder one been with GUG since toddler and now in their kindergarten class. Both my 2 kids love going to school becos their lessons and activities are always interesting and creative, and the teachers are caring and passionate.

GUG is about learning in a fun way.
But after a while the songs can be v repetitive.

LNT is about right brain training, so very different from GUG.

I think GUG is good for kids who are not attending other childcare of playgroup/kindergarten. LNT is more like Shichida where parents attend with the kids to learn ways to engage the kids in learning thtough activities like flash cards.

My youngest attended GUG's bilingual kids playclub and really enjoyed it! In 1.5 hrs there's a lot of learning incl zoophonics but also very fun for the kids. So after 2 terms, we decided to switch him to the Gifted Kids prog 3 x per week. I think teachers in both centres are the same (they move around between the centres).

The teachers are fixed to the centres and there are no rotation. Most of the good ones are at United Square. My daughter now is in K2, and I can tell you the course fees are much more expensive than her getting a tertiary diploma. :lol:
But I noticed that there were alot of turnover of teachers. You may want to highlight that issue to the school admin. But I suggest you go to United Square.
Cheers!

My boy also attended their twice a week class. He enjoyed his class very much and after 3-4 lessons, he was able to do the zoophonics actions and their sounds. Would love to continue the lesson but the journey is too far away.

Have tried out a few trials at Pat's schoolhouse for the D storyclub and tumbletots but they were not as good as GUG. Are there any good ones around East area?
