Hi chixchix,

When did you enquire about it? I recently spoke to the Principal at LV@NUS. She said they have recently open up for public. Think they want more business lor.

I was asked in another thread on the teachers in LV@NUS.

My children have been in this centre since Dec 06. My son is graduating this year, and my daughter, next year. However, Learning Vision has just been informed by NUS that the management of the centre will be carried out by Little Skool House next year onwards. Hence, Learning Vision is currently looking for an alternative location that is within 1 km from Kent Vale to cater to the NUS staff.

So far, I am happy with Learning Vision, although there were some hiccups initially. Since the change of Principal, things have improved tremendously.

As the largest centre of Learning Vision, LV@NUS has more than 200 students. Due to this large number, viruses tend to spread more rapidly. However, LV@NUS has done rather well this year to contain the viruses (AH1N1, HFMD, etc.). It was bad last year, such that the centre was required to close for one week. It's a good thing everyone learned and hence the good results this year.

Perhaps it is not Learning Vision's procedure to constantly update parents with the child's progress. Parents get formal updates from teachers twice a year, in the bi-annual PTC. However, for parents who want more frequent updates, please communicate with your child's teacher. Most of them are helpful. They provide every child with a COM book. Just write down whatever you want to say to the teachers in the book. The most important thing is to communicate, communicate and communicate. Lay down your expectations with the child's class teacher.

Most of the teachers in LV@NUS are diploma holders. There are also quite a number of teachers who have worked with Learning Vision for a long time, although it is usual that turnover becomes high immediately following April.

Meals-wise, I think it is decent, too. At least, I don't see them serving hard boiled egg and plain water only for breakfast. They follow the HPB guidelines for nutrition.

Curriculum-wise, they use Letterland to teach English. They teach number bonds for Maths. They have a Home-School Literacy Program to encourage parents and children bonding, as well as inculate reading habits in the children. Besides the normal program, they have included English Speech and Drama in the curriculum, too, even though this program is an optional program. Starting from last year, they have also included Multiple Intelligence in their curriculum.

Optional programs offered by LV@NUS this year are: Junior Gym Program, Ballet (Junior Dance Program), Junior Science Program and Music-in-the-Minds.

That's all I can think of. Anyone who has other questions, just let me know. :celebrate:
