Time to Save! Your Tuition Fee Guide for Makati Preschools
  • As a first-time mommy, one of the things I am excited — and anxious — about is my daughter's first school. I had begun researching for preschools, types of schools, locations, and more, even before she turned 2 years old! We had attended trial classes, weighed in pros and cons, and observed where she will enjoy the most. 

    For some, sending a 2-year-old to school is too early, but it was good for my daughter. She loves her school, and it has helped her to be more friendly and more expressive. We considered the environment, location, and price point in deciding which school is we see best for our toddler.

    This list isn't an all-encompassing directory, but it can hopefully help you decide how much money to set aside.
