Can anyone introduce a good option?
Prefer to be in east, can be around the following area:
Katong / Mountbatten / Kembangan / Haig rd / Bedok / Eunos / Marine Parade, etc.
Any good intros will be much appreciated.



There are quite a few of them. Masterhand, Just Kids and House of Hot Shotz. I think Masterhand like a bit further away. Call them for appointment and compare!

any good student care near SVPS or in Bukit Panjang to recommend?


Hi taykn26, check out a new BASC at choa chu kang (next to Choa Chu Kang Primary school) called Time Out Smarties Pte Ltd if you are still looking for BASC. My son will be attending the centre next year.

Are you in Phase 2C? If yes, you might want to start shopping around first. If I'm not wrong, there's a quota per level set by MSF/MOE...Could be max 15 students per level per BASC?

As you know, the siblings of current students would be able to "chope" a place at the BASC earlier than you. And those who clear their registration earlier in Phase 2A1/2A2 might foot their deposit earlier as well.

I suggest you be on standby after you've successfully secured a place in your choice primary school and go down to the BASC within the next couple of days to register. Call to check number of people registered to date.

Those nearer to the school will be highly sought after. Have a back up BASC near to your home. Also check with school bus driver if he plies that area in case the BASC is not within walking distance from your choice school and your DC needs to take the bus to get there.

In addition, check their afternoon programme, environment, tutor-student ratio, shower services, sleeping arrangement (boy girl segregation?), food quality, sanitation, ventilation, locker services, any proper nap time or must rest heads on the table, etc.

Important to check the demographics of each shortlisted BASC too. Majority of the students are from which schools? Your DC's school or some other neighbourhood schools? Boy-girl ratio. Some BASCs have more girls than boys. Go down to visit and see for yourself if the food looks nutritious. Some could be serving vegetarian food, others catered. Some cook their lunch in-house in HDB underground bomb shelters. Meanwhile, check if the students look naughty or well-behaved.

I heard there's a premium student care by Playfacto School opening at 55 Serangoon North Ave 4 #09-05. Is within walking distance from Rosyth School. Has anyone visited the place yet?
