Ya. Am newbie in this forum and just join so as to find out more info and sharing from fellow parents.

I just enrolled my first child to next year N1 at AMKMC Kindergarten.
Tried google about this school and their teaching, cannot seems to find anything at all.
Anyone can share their experience or knowledge of this Kindergarten?

There seems to be so much choices in the market, such as Montessori, Pat's, Eton, PCF, etc... So confusing for me.
Not sure if I made the right choice in choosing AMKMC Kindergarten as they seems just reopen about a month ago. But was operating in the past. Hard to find any references. Price is very reasonable, just that they mentioned there are no subsidy. Not sure why also.

Any fellow parents care to share their comments on this?

Cheers.

I have 3 older kids who went there before, but I think this kindergarten's management might be different? Been so many years. And I think they closed the kindergarten during the rebuilding.

Yup was told they closed the kindergarten and reopen. So its hard to find any reference. Even the principal is new, and when i visited the place, its rather small but clean. Phankao, can share from the past experience when your 3 kids were there?

And if i can suggest to the school, they should build a shade at the outdoor play area as it was rather hot direct sun to the kids when i observe their play time. Think mandatory hats would be nice.

Hi all. I visited the school last week and was about to enrol my boy for N1 only to find out the morning session is full. I forgot to ask about the fees. How much is it now? But my hubby seems to like the place. So we are most probably going to sign up for afternoon session.

The playground does seem a little dangerous to me with strings tied onto it. I hope it is just a temporary thing.

Not sure if this school is the right choice too. My elder girl used to go to Kinderland at YCK. I love the place. But the school is really too commercialised. So we are school hunting again.

Ang Mo Kio Methodist Church Kindergarten

Hi all,

I think the Principal is fantastic. Very experienced and accomodating, friendly to the kids too. Yes, morning classes all full. Fees about SGD400+. Without subsidy is because it is a kindergarten, not a child-care centre. Every level 4 hours so it is worthwhile. It is quite popular despite you not being able to find anything on the web about it. The kindergarten has run for many many years before the current rebuilding. I am most impressed because they PRINTED their own workbook! Yes! Both English and Chinese homework book comes in a printed glossy cover instead of loose sheets you expect usually.

It is a Christian kindergarten so you will find the assembly time teacher/principal talking to the kids, singing songs etc. Before food also there will be a prayer song.

Around the area not many good choices anymore so this kindy will get more and more popular as time goes by and word spreads around. You still have PM vacancies because I suspect it closed for so long parents already book their kids elsewhere so cannot change.

Marymount kindergarten is going to be relocated soon. Bethesda kindergarten is at a HDB flat. AMKMC has its own premises and playground. Programme well established.

Other choices around the area, yes, the branded CCC like PSH, Brighton Montessori and Learning Vision are all available at the Grassroots club. Prices (school fees will be x times 3 of AMKMC kindergarten). There are also many PCF, My first Skool around the AMK HDB all around.

But I will not put AMKMC kindergarten at the same level to discuss as such branded CCC. nor other PCF CCC. It is a church kindergarten with 4-hour programme daily.

It really depends on what you want and what you are looking for.

Thanks for sharing ahboymum!

I had a long talk with the principal. And yes, she is really so nice. It happened that the kids were on an excursion to kidz amaze at tpy safra that day, and she was dressed in sports attire so she could join the kids for some fun. The principal at my elder girl's ex kindy won't do that. I signed up for the PM session immediately. But i also waitlisted for an AM session. :)

I alsp registered my boy for next year's pre N. I feel that the playground should be cordoned off more securely.. but the teacher and the P says there will be at least 2 teachers around during playground time n that there's no worry..

My worry is to the left side.. there's a gap blocked by plants. .but children can Def squeeze thru. And beyond that is the flight of stairs. . Which is dangerous..

And to the right side.. not blocked off.. is the carpark... which is also dangerous.. If the child wander off the premise. .
