    Hi,

    Agreed. Friendly teachers with low teacher-child ratio. The centre is spacious and clean. My girl loves going to school and cannot stop talking about her teachers, friends and the activities she did in school daily. Overall, I am very satisfied with the centre. Highly recommended centre.

    I highly recommend this preschool. I work in education research and I can say that what this school claims in theory they practice. They use the multiple intelligences theory as applied in education and they are carefully applied across the curriculum. They also integrate the arts in all activities; I hesitate to call them modules or lessons as they are really structured as play appropriate to this age group. I am not so much for academic achievement but more for nourishing love for learning and holistic learning (academic excellence would easily follow if this comes first!). I am happy we stumble upon the school at big box by accident! Hubby and I were really impressed by what we saw considering we were not really expecting much. We enrolled our 3-year old a few days after the accidental visit. As I said, being in the education sector, we can tell if we've found a good place or not just by looking at the premises, reviewing curriculum, and observing lessons. We viewed other high-end preschools but Posso is by far the best in the preschool/childcare set-up in Singapore in our opinion.

    May I check how are the fees like at Posso?

    After discounts (early bird, social media posting, Giro) we pay $1480. We are foreigners so I don't get the local working mom discount. If you're local you'll pay less but you got to hurry before their early bird (first 100 students) expires as I'm seeing more and more students getting enrolled in the past two weeks!

    My girls went to Posso bigbox and currently at west coast rise. Both centre have robust curriculum to well prepare kids for the primary 1. Teachers in both Centers are caring and experienced, and school environment is good. Kids look forward to going to school everyday and happily share with us fun activities they had in school. Highly recommended Posso as the choice of preschool for kids

    Hi.
    Are your girls still studying in Posso? I just check with the Center Manager and they mention there is a one time referral discount of $300 for both the referring parents and the referred parents on the second full month that the referred child attends school at any of our centres. We just need to provide the school with the referal name and children name.
    Will you be able to provide me the above information so that both of us can enjoy the discount?

    Thanks in advance.

    I want to know too. I went to the open house on 8th Sept and didn't see any foreign teachers except the Chinese teacher. But maybe because I was too busy talking with the principal and the center director that I didn't really had a chance to look around much.

    They said only the first 20 can enjoy the early bird discount of $450 at Tampines branch. They had another open house on 15th Sept and apparently the early bird is still there. I causally called to check if the early bird still available and said there is still. My friend visited Big Box and they also said the 100 early bird still available. So, it makes me wonder if they markup the price in the first place and early bird is just a gimmick to make us enroll and it would be available for everyone. Wonder if there is anyone not enjoying the early bird discount.

    Hi, I went for the open house on the 15th of September. Pretty impressed with the facilities and the fact that they had hairdryers to ensure the children's hair will be properly dried to prevent them from catching a cold. This will be the 3rd childcare that my child will be attending if we decide to enrol.
    My concern is if it is new, would there be teething issues in terms of curriculum process, routines etc as the teachers themselves need time to adjust. The second childcare that my child attended closed down as the enrolment size was not many for the K1 and K2 level. This brings me to the second concern about the probability of this centre facing the same issue if the take-up rate is low.
    Would appreciate if anyone can comment on any of these especially since the centre at Big Box etc all started as a new centre before and perhaps your child has been enrolled when they first established the school.

    Regarding the early bird discount not sure if it is a gimmick but the early bird fee still applies as of now when I enquired 2 days ago.

    Thanks in advance!
