    Hi mummmies out there,

    I would like to find out if you would send your child to a home based playgroup/enrichment class (4-room HDB) that would consist of story telling, music & movement and some simple alphabets learning. The class size would be max of 5 kids which means more personal attention given. Say either once or twice a week for about an hour or 1.5 hour depending on the age of the toddler?

    Hi 2hot,
    I'm staying near central region - tpy. I'm actually considering of starting one but need to find out from the mummies here to see if there's the demand and get some form of feedback such as the timing, the cost & whether they mind if it's held at HDB flat instead of a dedicated centre etc.

    Organising it in a HDB flat can be a bit cramp. If ur hse is spacious then it's quite ok. Just to share wt u that I have organise one for my group of frens but the group is quite big almost 10 of us. somehow can be quite diff to get kids to sit down n go thru the prog.we oso had sing song segment, story time, bubble time and also art and craft. u plan to start a business on this?

    I go to one with my son at a hdb flat. It's an empty room and we all take turns to host a session. It's informal but we collect small amt of funds to cover the expenses. If the prog is good and fees is reasonable, I don't see reason why it's not possible.

    Thanks Megan and ky for your comments [​IMG]
    Ya am thinking of starting a biz on this. It would be good if can get it started & subsequently create some sort of employment opportunties for some mommies too. Tot it's good support oso. Don't really see this kind of arrangement in S'p. I've worked in childcare centres before, neighbourhood & high-end ones.The standard of teachers really can vary a lot. Even those popular big chain ones, it deps on your luck which teacher your child gets...it's crucial for young kids to learn the rite values from the start so the teachers play an impt role in inculcating these to them. It's easy to teach them skills, knowledge but not values. Oops, think I indulge too much in talking about this [​IMG]

    Hi Prissy,
    I'll keep you informed when it gets materialised [​IMG]

    Hi Ky,

    how many children can the room accomodate? Is there any curriculum to follow or is it on an ad hoc basis? Thks!

    Hi Megan,
    am hoping it to be around TPY or AMK area but then again, it depends on space availability as well. Esp now when rental fees are kinda high which is one of the major considerations.

    Yup, really depends on luck. I've a friend working in one of those 'famous' CC & the attitudes of the teachers made me hesitate sending my child to a CC when I have one next time.

    Hi guys!

    I am new to this Forum and to the country!

    I have been reading this post and thought I ask here because I have come across this place that I like and its at Toa Payoh!

    so, I just wanted to ask if anyone of you are interested to do a trial class with me @ Colourful Hearts? My girl is 2.3 yrs old and I have been looking around for a place to send her to, just for enrichment alone.

    I have spoken to the Program Director already. Basically, the trial class can happen when there is a minimum of 3 children so pls do sign up, esp if you have a child around the age group as my daughter!

    Also, I was pretty impressed with the credentials of the Program Director and the fees! Such reasonable prices so there is really no harm trying.

    Hi mummies,

    Would like to find out if any mummies would send your child to a home based playgroup/enrichment class (5-room HDB) that would consist of flash card, story telling, music & movement and art and craft.

    Say either once or twice a week for about an hour?

    My son 1 yo and not in childcare. Thought it would be a good idea for him to join a playgroup for him to start to play with other kids.

    Any mummies interested?
