I would like to place my little girl (20months now) in a playgroup and have shortlisted Smiling Star and Talent Plus. Actually, not very much choice as these are the only two near my place. Apple Tree does take children below 3 years old. I was wondering if anyone could share about Smiling Star? There is a new Smiling Star playgroup at Montreal Drive, they just started two days ago. If anyone has kids who have been to their other playgroups eg at Woodlands, Jurong etc, could you please share? Were the teachers patient and caring when the children cried, or did not want to participate? Smiling Star is my first choice currently, as I chatted with the teachers at the venue, and also their supervisor over the phone. They were all very forthcoming.
As for Talent Plus, I emailed and was given a hp number to call, which I did, but there was no answer. No reply to my sms either. It could be a fault in the connection, or the person is busy etc. The playgroup is located near Sembawang MRT station. Any feedback?
thanks for the reply... i had been to similing star and talent plus... both are not satisfactory as of now... but got no choice on playgroups also... btw where do you stay? i stay at 589c... do you think talent plus would be good? half day child care i dont see any nearby...
Haha I live in the next block. I dont't know about Talent Plus because I never got to speak to anyone. Nobody answered the phone, nor my sms-es. I emailed to let them know but there was no reply. Mmmm.... In terms of childcare centres within walking to us, there is PCF Sparkletots at 504. I met a neighbour whose daughter has been there last year, and she seems happy with it. There's also Glory Joy at 501B (near Wellington Pri School), My First Skool at 507 (near Wellington Pri School), Glucklich Schoolhouse along Sembawang Rd, Care Corner (350 Canberra Rd, opposite Sembawang MRT station), Cheeryland (above the NTUC at Sembawang Mart). There's also My First Campus at Sembawang Mart, but I heard there's a super long Q for this one.
