My daughter was there. She thoroughly enjoyed herself there and still had fond memories of it. There was a waiting list though. We waited half a year before getting a place.

Yes they do as second language. In fact there were other races like malay, indian ,caucasian pupils there too. And they all do Chinese! I don't know how they manage. But generally I feel the children are happy there. Go and have a look. I did that with my daughter in tow and she fell in love with the place the moment she set foot there, mainly because there was a play kitchen and swing cars etc.

wow wii,

you reply quick. Thanks. I just emailed them to ask if i can visit the schoo. Because i stayed in Clementi.

Tot of putting him at Newton Kindergarden with strong Chinese teaching but its quite far. Well, my hubby cannot teach chinese because his parents are very English spoken. And now my son is taken care of by my mother in law....for sure he will be like daddy. cannot speak a word of Chinese.

How old is you girl now? Still studying there?

hi
my elder daughter is in K1 this year.
Clementi Woods kindi has a well rounded curriculum in terms of English and Chinese language.
The teachers are caring and bond very closely with the children.
Last year when I was at the graduation ceremony, i was impressed with the performance put up by the kids. They are so confident of themselves on the stage. My girl used to be very shy but i am surprised she was so confident with the performance.
Enrolment around Jul/Aug. Call them early and know the dates. I remember arriving there seeing long queue of parents registering. 80% were already taken up by the siblings and the church members.

Hi,

My son been there since Jan. The school is very very good and the teachers are so warm. When my son was ill, they even post us a get well card. Not once, but 2 times!

However, i am pulling him out and put him to My First Skool near my in laws and my place after June.

It is a sad and diffcult decision but because he takes the school bus and he is the last to alight...quite poor thing.

I strongly encourage you to send you kid there :) Btw, i will be posting his uniform to sell. Let me know if you keen to purchase.
