Hi,
my girl goes to Dr Lieu at Baby n Kids.
I find her ok. Only visited 1 PD so far (other than the one who attended to my girl in hospital). So I can't compare...

My girl is currently 27 month and will be going to ichiban kiddie kollege next year. I actually enrolled her in another CC in June this year which I queued up for a long time but her experience there was terrible. I withdraw her after just 4 days.

Now she has a fear of sch that's why even at 27 mth she's still not attending sch. Will let her grow out of her fear for a while more than let her attend ichiban. She attended Ichiban when she was 18 mth and was very happy there. However, at that time, she was still very young. Still eating porridge at home and walking also not very stable type. I was worried about her eating so I withdrew her after 1 week and she keep asking to go to school. I regretted withdrawing her. Then she won't have the bad experience at the other centre and won't have a fear of school now.

Last time when I ask whether she want to go to school she always say 'yes'. But now when I ask whether she want to go to school she will always say 'No'. Sigh.... Think i made a wrong move...

Your girl's teacher is Choo Leh Leh right? Is she strict? Not sure how she is compared to Tay Hee Ngerng of Ballet Eastern Dance @ Bukit Panjang CC.

My girl used to attend ballet lessons at Punggol CC and it was terrible there. The teacher is either always not around (we had some relief teacher), alot of time was wasted organising the girls and disciplining the class and the children from other time slots were inside the class making alot of noise and distracting the girls.

Thanks for your feedback. Actually, I'm looking for a strict teacher. Maybe I'll give Miss Tay @ bukit panjang CC a try then.

I send both my girls to Cherie Hearts @ gombak but I heard they're full occupancy already.

mamapanda,
My girl still attendig the ballet at Senja-cashew cc, the teacher is young and nice. The Senja-cashew cc is shifting to the new sports complex opposite bukit panjang plaza from 8 Sep onwards. So the lesson will be at the new sports complex.

Other ballet school is at cck, beside lot 1 is Crestar and The Ballet and Music Company.

Hi Huingee, any idea when earliest we can send our child for the ballet classes at CC or other sch which you mentioned in your post? my girl is 2/1/2YO only. any idea if she is too young for the Grade 1 class?

WWT,
Most start with baby ballet, then pre ballet, primary ballet and then to Grade 1.
I think baby ballet about 3 years old, the pre-ballet about 4 years old. Not too sure, you can call to check with the ballet school.

Any mummies have let you kids join Ichiban Montessori Kiddie Kollege and Adelfibel Infant And Child Development Centre Pte Ltd? Please give me your comments.

Hi Ceron,

My girl juz joined Ichiban recently.... less than 1 month ago. She's in the playgroup and will promote to pre-nursery next year. I would say it's not bad, i think. My girl had a phobia of school initially as she had a bad experience at her previous childcare. Over here, she settled down quite fast. She only cries when I bring her to school or when I fetch her. If it's my mum or my maid, she's happy to go. My mum even say every morning, my girl will keep telling her she want to go to school liao. But that's when I'm not at home. So I think it should be quite ok.

Hi Shelyn,

Thanks for your advice. I have put my son's name under waitlist cos it's full now... I am just wondering how is their curriculum for the kids. My son had attended tat school before but tat's before they implemented the montessori program... i'm staying at B/629 senja rd, where are u staying?

Hi Ceron,
Which class is your son waiting for? Full so fast? I know playgroup is full, others I not sure. I think their curriculum is ok. She's now in playgroup, so I think curriculum still not that much, I can't comment much. My girl is there for less than a month also, so don't think can see anything yet.

She was also in that school last Nov when she was 18 months but I drew her out after 1 week cos I find her not ready. That time she still can't eat rice and I find the food not suitable for her. She walk also not that stable. Then this june I put her in another childcare that's bigger and more spacious with their own playground, thinking she'll like it but who knows she had such a bad experience, I took her out after 4 days and this Oct start with Ichiban again.

I'm staying at Bt Panjang Blk 177. It's quite far from Ichiban but as long as my girl enjoys it, I don't mind cos it's not really that far. Still within Bt Panjang so not too bad.
