Hi, does anyone have any info/feedback on Marymount Kindergarten? I had just registered my son for PN class starting jan 2009. Would like to know what i can look out for and if there is anything i should prepare him for. Did anyone attend the orientation? Please share. Maybe, Chief Kiasu, can you share what would be taught for a 3yr old in a Pre-Nursery? Thank You.

Heard that children who came from Marymount Kndergarten had a very good foundation in English. That was years ago so I'm not sure whether it's still the same.

Have been unsuccessfully trying to call their phone number (62515049) over the last week to enquire, but the number always seems to be engaged or it'll ring off! That in itself is pretty off-putting :?

What are the fees and Nursery class sessions like? Do they have a website? Cant seem to find one. Are they located next to Marymount Convent or IN the convent grounds itself, just next to Thomson Road?

It's around $700/term. I can't remember. They are located next to MM convent. if you wish to register now, I think they are opening for registration in the next few weeks (if I can remember correctly).

If you drive, you have to turn left at the petrol kiosk, pls do not turn into the MM convent.

Morning class is 8.15-11.15am and afternoon 11.30-2.30pm.

HTHs.

My boys attend Marymount Kinder. And I must say that I am so glad that I've enrolled them there.

My priorities lie in the pastoral care of the children and the curriculum. After all, happy kids would love to go to school and it is rather obvious if the kids like it or not.

The boys love school. The teachers are warm and positive and they make learning fun for the kids. They have the opportunity to swim (or play in the splashing pool), go for computing classes, attend assemblies where bible stories are shared or songs are sung and then there's arts and crafts.

The K1 kids have homework that they have to complete over the weekend but, other than that, my boys think that school is a treat.

Speak to their principal, Miss Rose-Marie Ng, for a tour. She's a really lovely lady who never fails to greet you whenever she walks past you.
