I am reviewing a
I had sent my 2 children to LFP@Thomson. The principal, Ms Lena, came out to be a very friendly and dedicated principal, warm and very professional with a touch of love and caring for the children in her centre. We were sold completely till after we signed up. EVERYTHING that she had portrait to us at the beginning was Gone and what we say was a VERY irresponsible principal that brush matters under the carpet when matters of students was brought up. We heard many very bad stories about Principal Lena and her ways of running the school. She pretended to be a very caring principal, only to entice you to sign up and after she got you, your child/children are left to fend for themselves. My children cringed every time I sent them to school. She has excellent PR skills but that all she has. Irresponsible Principal. Was told by many parents that left LFP@Thomson she was the WORST principal ever to be employed. Was also told there were once almost 100 students in the school and had dwindled to 57 after her take over. She would smile and kiss the students when we were there but was told by teachers she doesn't even acknowledge the students when parents aren't around. We eventually pulled our children from that school and now enrolled to another and they seemed happier and learn a lot more. We, as parents of 2 young children that had mistakenly enrolled to LFP@Thomson, after 'buying' Ms Lena PR stunt and skills, highly DO NOT RECOMMEND any parents registering there. Don't be 'bought over' by her PR stunts and cleverly sold PR words. Its just a show!!!!!!
Learning vision@KKH teachers and supervisor are the best. They show care & concern at all time. My boys always talk about their teachers everyday. They partner with learning horizon for extra curriculum activity during school hours.
Child to teacher ratio is not manageable by teachers even though adhered to given guidelines by ECDA.Child struggled w basic care such as eating, sleeping, toilet visits etc. Insufficient manpower or expertise to give enough attention to basic childcare needs.
highly not reccomended to put kids in MFS infant care as everything in terms of activities and environment and teachers are lacking of it.
My child studies in Superland and find the school’s inconsistency in curriculum. No official notice or announcement and feedbacks from parents is less enrichment and practise differs since new Teachers always onboard
My child joined in early April this year because they have stable school bus service. I'm impress with their small teacher child and their enrichment classes. Quite special as they do have Korean dance and fitness. I like the Parental involvement every 2 months once which I enjoy alot with my child as I'm working so this is a good opportunity to have bonding session with my child and get to know the teachers.
The school management and teachers seem to be secretive . Updates to parents were simple and no photos of children. Teachers do not make attempts to update if things went wrong especially when my child is in Toddler level.
Teaching staff is good and cooperative with parents and childrens. Facilities and activities are good enough to make children understand the base.
No proper plan about what the learning goals are for the year or are clueless about what the children will do on a daily basis to occupy their time.
Great brand name and good curriculum. Each school operates as a franchise of MapleBear so they follow the curriculum. However, practice, quality of teachers and standards vary from branch to branch. The Holland branch is in a relatively inaccessible location but good for providing outdoor activities for kids as school is in a detached house so sufficient outdoor play. Principal not very proactive in sharing updates and photos of kids or activities with parents. Most of the time, photos are posted on school’s social media accounts in advance of sharing with parents via portal. Some nice teachers (especially the Chinese ones and Vice President) but management of school relatively rigid and materialistic. Principal doesn’t interact well with parents.
My child is with the school and having prolonged HFMD cases. The school has grown too fast and teacher student ratio is falling back since students increase more than Teachers in past year. The school try to use relief Teachers and aunties as back up. Facilities are present and teaching sense is varying due to teachers this is not the actual Montessori.
Little skittle is a cosy little kindergarten which is a perfect first school for my little girls.. the staff is very warm, friendly and caring. They have an amazing outdoor space which my girls love. The curriculum is play based and the school collaborates with parents for a lot of activities..
This childcare center teaches good values and their teachers are very gracious. I believe children that attends this school will turn out to be rock-solid kids!
Visited Mulberry (Woodlands) and fall in love with their no-wall concept!
My child was very unhappy in the school. Did not seems to learn much in school. Mostly left to play in the small space while the teachers monitor them.
This school has a team of very responsible, nice and friendly principal and teachers. They have been updating me with my daughter's progress and happenings during classroom time. The principal has been very kind to assist us whenever we have any queries, same goes to the teachers who took time off their break to communicate with me. Principal is relatively well-informed of what takes place in school so it really helps that she is often ready to answer our queries. Otherwise, she will check with teachers and make it a point to always followup and resolve any matters and keep us notify.
Placed my girl in K1 class for 3 months and decide to withdraw. Find it difficult to communicate with principal and teachers (personal feedback and may not apply to all parents) Within this 3 months already had replace 2 teachers for K1 class. I keep inquiring about my daughters' performance but did not receive adequate feedback.
Amazing infancy care center with such kind and caring teachers. My daughter felt at ease from the very first day she started going. The staff is very motivated into keeping the little ones entertained with different little projects, and make pictures of the activities for the parents. Once or twice a week, the teachers would come up with something new (waterplay, coloured tissues, hand puppets for storytelling...). They have a very large, light area with different corners for play, and kids are encouraged to go explore and choose with whatever they want to play. It took us a while to communicate our preferences to the teachers, but they were open for all our demands, even the ones that were foreign to them. Absolutely amazing school and we will miss them.
I was not too impressed with their infancy care. The space used for the babies is a small room, where a few toys are kept. In the two weeks my daughter went, she was in a high chair or a playpit, but never playing with a toy. They had other rooms with toys, a balcony for water play.. didn’t see any of it happen. Staff was also not very compliant to personal preferences regarding baby care, and were quite pushy in convincing us of their ways. Overall, the older groups seemed to be better entertained with a large outdoor area with many play houses, a trampoline, and a water play area.
My daughter loves the school. Everyday she comes home singing songs and telling me what she has learnt. She can't stop talking about her teacher too. Their curriculum is high order and they really prepare their children for Primary school. Facilities great too. Fully air conditioned. Love it and strongly recommend.
The teachers are very nice and welcoming. My mathematics improved from an F9 to a B4. The teachers ensure that our basics & concepts are strong. I strongly recommend this tuition centre to primary & secondary school students. :)
Very kind and considerate tutor. The tutor knows how to make sure that the student does not get stressed up during math tuition and I am no exception especially when I am weak in math. I have also seen a noticeable improvement in my math grades since I have joined his tuition.
Service is bad, I couldn't even get in touch to the customer service hotline at 10 am in the morning, I wonder if the teaching can be as good as promoted......is the number listed on the website is really the hotline ???
Teachers are patience, encouraging. Admin staffs are friendly and efficient. The programme is caters to individual progress, which I like this.
My child is in this Student Care Center in Bukit Batok. It is a very good environment for my child, while i am at work.
After looking at my child's worksheets after a few lessons, I am impressed by what she is learning. Her recent CA result finally shows improvement and I am so happy to share with other parents who are at their wits to improve their children's results.
They have selections of well-planned and integrated programmes, taught by pool of qualified and dedicated teachers.
The trainer at Kovan Learning Centre boosted our daughter's interest in Mathematics as he engaged her to learn in a more effective manner implementing the Neuro Schema Based Learning and her excellent results are achieved through the innovative & creative teaching methods adopted at Kovan LC.
The tuition teacher is very nice, subject and amount of information given is sufficient. The curriculum is in good order.
Very systematic. Especially helpful for Chinese oral exam. They teach how to answer the orals. Not just practice as most schools do. My girl is usually a borderline Marks. Scored A2 for Last year GCE O Level Higher Chinese. Super happy that she went for this tuition with Chen Lao Shi.
Observed that whenever any month have 5 weeks, the school will place a day for closure and left 4 lessons in that month. Certain months have 4 weeks the school will sometimes declare school closure for that week, that left with 3 lessons to attend for the month with no make up lesson. Why the planning plan as such? Is it fair to us?
I would like to express my gratitude to hanlin Centre, expecially Mr Wilfred Lim, for guiding and coaching my daughter in obtaining an A* for her PSLE mathematics. The centre has a team of dedicated teachers who go the extra mile to ensure that every student strive for their best. They are patient and knowledgeable and show their deep passion in teaching for every lesson. Thank you once again, for helping my daughter maximize her potential.
After attending the class my son have a major improvement in the mathematic plus the teacher is very attentive to the kids over at the center and patience too
I enrolled my son since K1-P6. We never speak mandarin at home and he managed to get an A for Psle CL last year. I find that cultivating interest and engaging my child in Chinese before 7 is really very important! Just sent my youngest daughter to their centre for K1 two months ago. Many thanks to their teachers for the guidance and their excellent teaching materials. Kudos!!
Bad teaching style. Teacher spoke broken English. Mostly Philippines teacher and Malaysian teacher that did not graduate at TOP university
Dedicated and passionate teachers with excellent service staffs.
Keith and Kester have both scored A2 in their O levels for their English, thanks to Mr Kenneth, they have great improvement!
Attended my A level physics tuition classes here with Teacher Jack... Had my CCA stopped pretty late and we had a crash course that brought us back to speed. Got A for the A levels so thats not too bad.
Good Teachers and interactive programme. I entrust them with my boy and girl happily. My son’s writing improves and my girl’s passion grows! Highly recommended:)
My girl joined their P4 math classes as the only student. Later on few others joined the class and she enjoyed it more. Gets more than 90% after joining their classes. Good job by the team.
