Good evening meron po bang nakakaalam f anung playschool ang malapit sa sm north edsa?or sa munoz q.c.?i nid ur help i want to enrol yung daughter ko 3 yrs  old n siya...its hr first time to go to school which is better for her a playschool or a preschool?

HI! There's Gymboree in Trinoma. I enrolled my 2yo baby girl there for a 12-week program, which we divided into three themes - Play and Learn (recommended for first timers in Gymboree, or for those who had never gone into play schools), Music (learning through various dancing and singing activities, similar to those we see in learning videos like brainy baby), and Learning Lab (classroom-based learning activity, ready-ing your child for for academic activities thereafter).

The sessions can be 1x/week, or 2x, up to 3x/week. We chose the once a week schedule so the baby won't be shocked with the change of lifestyle. Good thing, she's already very familiar with Gymboree as that's the only play area we brought her to since she was barely 1 year old (safest!)

For the once-a-week schedule, we paid around 13k for the 12 sessions, including the membership fee which you have to pay (membership can be used up to 4 yrs old, with free gameplay coupons, and entitles your kid for discounted rates for playtime and event fees).

It's been great because it helped my baby to learn how to interact with other babies (they were 4 in their class), follow instructions of the teachers, and learned how to be independent (there are several teacher aides around). It's a good pre-nursery program for your baby so when she enters nursery, she won't get perplexed with the sudden change of her lifestyle. :-)

I can only say good words for Early Literacy Clinic (ELC) in New Capitol Estates I just across Don Antonio. The private village is right beside Ever Gotesco Mall in Commonwealth. They focus on reading/writing/creatives suited for the child's performance (individualized program). They only allow 10 to 16 (the most) kids per level. The owner/teacher is a former UPIS teacher and still holds a teaching sked for UP graduate school and Miriam. The class curriculum is authored by the owner (Teacher Mimi) and have teachers from U.P.  The owner wanted the pre-school to remain small and homey-approach, her former students who now have now sons/daughters are already attending ELC program. She only wanted a word-of-mouth approach and declines putting up websites/online presence even if the school can afford it. You can inquire in NCE I main gate or call ELC at 931-4132 . Tell them Mommy Daryll recommend the learning center. :) We are on our second year and working on to get an entrance for UPIS this April. :)

hi! we went to different preschools this week. so far, Creative Children Learning Center is the one that we liked most for our baby. Napakabait and very accommodating ni teacher Ina. She answered all our questions and was very upfront with the way things are done in her preschool.
It's a progressive preschool and disney based. She showed us the different materials that they use and some of the works of their kids. I didn't realize na sobrang tagal na pla ng kwento namin.  She made us feel very comfortable and she even brought some toys over for my daughter to play.
There are two classes. nursery and kinder. i think the maximum students per class is 12-13 with 2 teachers. so the ratio is 1:6. There's a playground just outside the classrooms. I like the fact that there is a waiting area for parents and yayas. I will definitely recommend this school. It's located in 32 Riverview, Blue Ridge, Quezon City.

Good morning,  new here.  Currently, my children are studying at PIQC in Banawe.  Since we will be transferring in Filinvest this coming summer, I am scouting for private school to where they can transfer.   I came across these three schools as a possible choice: 
1.  School of St. Anthony in Lagro
2.  International Chrstian School in Novaliches
3.  Mater Carmeli in Novaliches

May I know your feedbacks on the three schools? And also, if anybody knows any Chinese school located in Cmmonwealth, Fairview or Novaliches?

Thank you very much!

Hi mommies! I went around these schools and here are my findings/opinion:

1. Mother Goose Nursery School - school is very nice and equipped. Location is ok but the roads are under construction when we went there also I noticed that there are only few vehicles passing by this road (Don Manuel near Sto. domingo Ave). Tuition is too steep at P135k! Subject to adjustment for next school year. They were accommodating buy I was expecting more (with that tuition fee).

2. Lieve Deheegher - prior to going here this morning, I was able to speak with Teacher Rochelle last Monday and she was very nice and accommodating. So I put this school on top of my list for my daughter. So I went this morning and found the school right away inside Taayan Village. I arrived 11am and there were no cars or ther vehicles parked in front of the school. The building/structure needs major repainting or renovations. When I went down my car, an old man was standing in front of the gate. Before I spoke, he asked me "mag-iinquire?" I said "opo". He answered in a whispering like voice "tagilid na tong school na to" I was surprised and clarified "po? Magsasara na to?" Again almost whispering "oo" He didn't even move from where he was standing so I didn't attempt to go inside anymore. To be honest I was scared and puzzled because I just spoke with Teacher Rochelle 2 days ago. So I left and to confirm what the old man said, I called Teacher. I asked her about it and she said that they are still operational. I asked who was the old man and she said it was 1 of their maintenance person. I was still within the area and Teacher asked if I could go back and she'll wait for me at the gate. I made an excuse that I had to pick up my son in school but the truth was I was SCARED of the old man. I went ahead to another school for my preschool hunting. Although I was considering this school, this situation changed my mind. I heard good reviews for Lieve but I can't ignore what the old man said and also why would the old man say things like that if Lieve was ok with their employees...

3. Our Lady of Lourdes Child Devt Center - school facilities medyo old na. Very limited parking (side street lang). When I was waiting to be entertained a class was gong n and was able to observe. I like the way the teacher was handling her class. Fluent english and the kids were so interested. Teacher Lian (owner), was very accommodating. The school is one of  the 1st progressive schools, 55 years na sila! Tuition is p54,500 but will increase 5-10%.

4. Young Minds Learning Center - I've read very good reviews with this school. I called the school to inquire. The staff told me that rateis at P38k per year!  So I went there. I was surprised when the staff gave me their rates and it was at P52k already! She showed me the breakdown. Chinese is included in the tuition na. So if the child does not want Mandarin classes the P12k +++ goes to waste...

5. Moppets Learning Spring - wasn't able to go down. I called their contact numbers but all 3 were not working. Also the school doesn't look like a school. It's an apartment with the gate painted with the school name.

With this, top of my list or the only 1 on my list for now is Our Lady of Lourdes Child Devt Center. My daughter will be sitting in tomorrw.

@steroxas hindi natuloy sit in namin because one of the teachers sa 2s and 3s class were absent. Teacher Lian will text me for the resched. My son's (gr1 from Lourdes)  tutor was a teacher at this school. She left because she wanted to pursue teaching in a public school kung baga "calling" daw. I asked her unbiased feedback on this school and she had good words for it. My best friends son also came from this school, he's in LSGH now.

I'll update you when we sit in. Btw, what level would be your daughter in this school year? TF to increase 5-10% daw. Also we'll sign up for summer to warm up my little one  ;D
