Selecting a childcare centre

First, list down your criteria , and priority
- Conductive environment for child to learn?
- Clean environment? or children always fall sick? How does school implement isolation policies?
- Patient and passionate teachers?
- Within your budget?
- Your expectation?

For us, we just need our kids to learn :
- independence
- socializing
- sharing in a "group"

Secondly, shortlist school and make ground visits
- http://www.childcarelink.gov.sg/ccls/home/CCLSHome.jsp
- go for interviews with Principal (you can gauge how a school is managed, just by chatting with the principal)
- we believe in affinity 缘, teacher-child bonding is crucial to a happy child :)

Lastly, get reviews/brickbats on preferred childcare centres

Most important tip which we give to friends is to manage our own expectations.
It is very normal for us to worry about how our kids will cope in new environment.
Or we could be expecting the Sky, but only willing to pay $peanuts??

Let your little ones survive the new environment, and see them adapt.
We did not have much choices to start with, no helpers, and parents working.
So we have to chuck kiddos into schools from an early age.
Look how they have bloom.
