does any mummies here ve kids attending PAP school?
im deciding btw PAP or private for my boy.
any difference in teaching btw PAP & Private?
Not so sure about the difference in curriculum, although the PAP ones have tied up with Little Skoolhouse so might be better than previously? They also have enrichment lessons (computer, etc). Maybe you could shortlist a few centres and then ask them about their curriculum.
Also to consider would be teacher qualification. I dont't want to sound snobbish but my ex-colleague sent her son to PCF Kindergarten and she went for the first PT meeting and she was very disturbed by the English spoken by the teacher (ok, she's a GP teacher. Still...) But another friend's daughter who attended PCF kindergarten speaks impeccable English and is very well-mannered/behaved. The home environment is very important too, alongside the school environment, I guess.
