Im searching for a new kindergarten for my kids, an Islamic English medium. Few recommended Genius Aulad, although i heard good review of the school but the branch nearest to my place is in Kota Damansara and their centre is a shop lot…im not keen coz i think for my kids’ age they need ground for outdoor activities.
2 weeks back, we went to CIC Open Day (Childr3n Islamic C3ntr3) wasn’t really happy with the school coz (no offence to those who send their kids’ there, this is a matter of personal preference):
1. the teacher to student ratio is 1:20. I think this is possible if the kids are 5 , 6 years old coz they have settled down. But 20 of uZAir to a teacher??
2. Its a bungalow house, so i asked max how many students you can take in, and the answer was 150 kids. I just can’t imagine 150 kids in that house
3. When husband asked does the teacher keep on changing? The teacher was being very honest telling me, most teachers are SPM leavers coz they can’t go anywhere with their qualification, thus they usually stay longer there as compared to degree holder, the turn over rate for degree holder are high coz they take that place merely as a stepping stone b4 getting a proper job.
4. And another major turn off was when we saw their meal menu, for snack in the morning, they serve alternately different drinks on different days; milo (still acceptable), tea (?) and tea susu (????) Are they for real serving 2, 3 year old boy tea and tea susu? Org tua minum tea pun bleh angin ni kan lagi budak. As for food, i saw cucur udang n cucur pisang among it. And for lunch i only saw half of monday menu, i was so shocked that i didn’t manage to read the rest of the menu before the teacher flip the pages; Nasi + TOM YAM AYAM
Any suggestion of Islamic English Medium Kindergarten? Was thinking of sending them to Itqan but they don’t take uZAir’s age and it will be a problem to send the kids at 2 different school in the morning.
