Hi all. I have a problem sending my son 3yrs old to the kindy where he goes now.
His teacher somehow slapped his hand cos he didn't listen to what he was asked to do,(or maybe he throw things cos he wasn't happy), and now he's traumatized with this incident, refuse to go there anymore.

I ve tried Small wonder in SS19, but their morning session 4 next year is
already full for 4yrs old.
Has anyone been to Little Montessori house in SS14 or Taska Raibow in SS18, or any recommendations for a kid who's scared of going to kindy?
Thanks.

hi molly , maybe u can try this ( THE CORE LEARNING CENTRE) AT 83 , JLN USJ 11/4J TEL : 03-56366703.
My daughter was there since she at age 5 & 6 (i never send her to any school before) and she really enjoyed and learned a lot . i very satisfied on this school. The principal & teacher here patient and soft spoken . the best thing in this school is, if your kid have problem (maybe he is highper active kid or slow learning)... like my daughter is DYSLEXIA concentration very short than they will put your kid into the class with super patient teacher (PLEASE TALK TO PRINCIPAL).
My son just turn at age 2 . i has register him for next year.
This school have morning session, half day and full day. hope this can help !!

Hi sleepbeauty02. Good to hear that the place has "Super patient teacher".
It all depends on the teacher-kid chemistry, isn't it?
Is the Core learning center applying conventional way of teaching i.e. kids need to sit in a row with high academic anticipation from their teachers, or focusing more on children's character building & social skills?
(i prefer the latter for my son)

My son is a bit slow in learning or in cooperating with others, (he's not diagnosed as any kind of learning difficulties),yet the teacher wants him to be more obedient & fast learner .
I want him to feel comfortable when he's in a kindy.
Anyways, I'll go & check them out. Thanks :)

hi there,

I'm just wondering if three year old to start "schooling" could be a lil too soon ? I have heard of these Real-kids, smart reader, etc, not sure if there's any difference ? any parents out there have better experience with some nursery centres near USJ ?

Hi Molly, as to what was told by a few friends who sent their kids to the core, its a pretty good kindy if academic and a more serious kinda teaching is what you are looking for. But to those with more playful kids, they switch to montessories. But then again, the fees are very much different lah! Character wise you know your own kid better. It all depends on the parents and their kid what kind of teaching method would suit. Some even opt for home tutoring after more than 1/2 a year trying to coup with nurseries...like me, but then again you must be a housewife or operating a homebase business to be able to settle for home tutoring as time again is the essence.
I find that my son (age 4 1/2 now) learns more in 2 months with 1 1/2 hr daily) compares to 8 months in this nursery (4 hrs daily). Besides home tutoring, I send him to activity classes once weekly eg..mental arithmatic, art lessons and to i-clay centre where he can meddle with his imagination, problem solving and creativity skills. Due to practicing practical with theory as well as social interactive classes, he has become more sociable, realistic and more responsible for a child his age.

So if you think you prefer montessori, then you can't compare montessori methods to of conventional nurseries'. They are just very different. Yup Small Wonder is good as they practice alot of life skills and they are always full. Try speak to Teacher Jelita and reg with a small deposit (returnable) coz sometimes there are parents that pulls out last minute. What is good here too is that they have this webcam service that you can connect to your 3G hp/pc so that you can see your child anytime you want.

Yup, I too think that 3 is still too young but then again it all depends... ofcoz schools will tell you that you can even send a 2 year old ya. Then again every child is special and different so you decide.

I think you should send your kid to school only when your kid can talk/communicate well enough so he is able to express his concerns to you (if any). Else he may come home crying and you can't figure out what's wrong. Lil common sense.

imho the teacher shouldnt slap him. she should instead given him a time off or stand at the corner. Slap him wouldnt do any good. Just my 2 cents.

Thank you all for your comments.
Since I am not a local, (that means I can't teach my son Chinese & Bahasa myself), and my elder son who is now in Primary had had a very very difficult time when he first joined kindy in Malaysia at the age of 5, I wanted my second one (he'll be 4 soon) to be a little bit more prepared than my elder one.
Well, my elder son even didn't know how to read& write or speak ABCs when he was 5, so that some kindy didn't want him to even join their school!
I agree that 3 might be too young for schooling, but until he was slapped and traumatised, he really enjoyed going to the kindy.

Hi Molly. Have you decided on the school yet? My son will be 4 next year so he's starting school for the first time this Jan.

Hi LMei,
Still not decided where to send him.

I brought my son to PLC 2-day Holiday course. Teachers there were really patient and the students & helpers were very well-mannered and kind. My son seemed to enjoy the 2day course. I also like the teachers there.
Just that the school is using Smxxx Reaxxx Kids programme, and
where my son previously went was also using SRK programme and he didn't like all those dot-to dot writing and reading (i.e. study-based program) at all...

Also went to talk to The core learning centre, the principal was kind enough to show us around and give me some advice for slow learner, and my son seemed to like her too. But again , I am not sure if my son can cope with their study-based curriculum, with 20 over children in one class.

Should I go back to Small Wonder even though they have no place for morning session, (He'll be sleepy & very cranky during his afternoon-session i.e. he won't learn much in that kind of situation)or keep him @ home and worry about his Chinese and Bahasa ability later on.

I heard many parents praising Tadika Sri Comel (USJ4), perhaps you may want to check it out.

Fong,

I don't think Tadika Sri Comel is Montessori-based - try Tadika St Nicholas at USJ13, near the Persiaran Kewajipan (opposite USJ14 Petronas) main road.
