Another Failed Trial

Went to a popular pre-school today for another trial class.

The programme offered by the centre is very attractive but when I sit in today, I have this feeling that the teachers had not been doing their "work" until when parents like me sit in, then they pretend to teach...

What makes me said this? Well, if what the teachers are teaching is a normal day routine, the little kids would have known more or less what to expect/ do, isn't it? But I can see that they don't and the kids are not new to the centre, according to the teachers, they had been with them for a few months already! When the kids didn't respond, the teacher will remark that "O..so-and-so not here today...he is star of the class, he will bring live to the class...." I was thinking inside me "Do you need a kid to add fun into the class? Isn't it supposed to be the teacher's job?"

So, this centre is out again...I really hate it to put my little boy through all these trials/changes in environment but when I first talked to these centres, they always have great vision and planning. Only later that I found out they have no deliveries...*sigh*

Wonder was it my expectation too high? But I just want a fun, lively school for my boy to play and learn and grow...

Hey...did u try "Vital Years"? Not too bad as compared to those nurseries. Somehow I don't prefer those nursery, the cleanliness in the environment and space are always a question to me.

Nah! for such thingy, high expectation is a MUST!!!

Impressive job mdm, though tiring and troublesome, but your experience as a Mommy to 3 kids has proven your foresight.
