I tried kindermusik, Julia Gabriel, growing up gifted, gymboree (or similar to that), etc.

I would think, save your money. use the money to buy more toys and spend time playing with the child. no need to travel, no need to pay for sch fee.

however, if you dun mind paying, try Julia Gabriel cos after trying so many centres, I find that, that is the best enrichment centre.

I did Shichida when my girl was 6 mths, than JG, Growing up gifted, Sempi Music, kindermusik, gymboree. Pull her out when she is 3 to join Little Neuro Tree.
Twins started Little Neuro Tree since 10 mths old, for 9 mths already. Its weekend, once a week. Am quite happy with the progress. $600 for a term. You can call them out and check if they have trial.
