I’m still grappling with the decision of whether to send Little Edison to preschool next year or wait. Is he ready for preschool? Is he confident and independent enough? Will he be able to keep up with his classmates? What if he cries at school and refuses to go the next day? I have endless questions in my mind now.
Personally, I feel that preschool is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn from the professionals who know how to teach in a fun and age-appropriate methods. Children who attend preschool are more confident and better prepared when the time comes to go to kindergarten.
Apart from learning, I want Little Edison to experience being away from home and begin socializing with other children. He will learn to interact with other children and adults who aren’t his family members. He will develop social skills that are crucial for his development.
In terms of academic, he will be exposed to curriculum and materials that are not available at home. He will learn through organized play, structured curriculum, with experienced teachers and in a stimulating environment.
I have a few preschools in my mind now. It’s time to give them a visit and make a careful decision for Little Edison.
- St. James’s Church Kindergarten
I love the curriculum and environment, but its location is a bit far. Heard that it is has a long waiting list too. True?
- Bethany Kindergarten
This is the nearest church kindergarten from my office as well as my PIL’s house. It’s easy to send him to and from school.
- Kinderland Preschool
Mummies, are there any other good preschools in Serangoon or Upper Paya Lebar area? Appreciate all your inputs. Thanks.
