The school that’s a home away from home for kids
Our little one (LO) started attending Little Petals Preschool (LPP) only a month ago. That said, we are already very impressed with what we have gathered from our LO.
Prior to attending LPP, our LO was in higher-tier well-known childcare in a beautiful, sprawling country club. It was sad that beauty didn’t last for us. Our LO started disliking going to school more and more as each day drew on. And because he was not quite verbal, we never knew what went on in school that caused him so much unhappiness.
We decided to explore our neighbourhood for a potential school our LO may attend. We visited two preschools along the stretch of LPP. At first skeptical of LPP’s lack of ‘history’, we were soon won over by Mr Yap (owner) and Principal Karen. They were sincere and genuinely caring towards our LO right from the day of the tour. With good synchronization, one would speak to us while the other one automatically tended to our LO.
Honestly, no preschool has done that for us on tours.
So, we forfeited our deposit in the previous school and jumped right into LPP. Working with our LO’s speech therapist, LPP’s staff met us a couple of times to understand the needs of our LO better. Again, no school has done that for us before.
Our LO started new school and we were of course, nervous wrecks ourselves as we paced anxiously back home waiting for the school to call for any mishaps, meltdowns or inability to cope.
But you know what? By Day 2, our LO happily walked into school on his own. No tears, no drama. In his previous school, he never stopped wailing whenever I sent him to school.
These days, our LO enjoys going to school so much sometimes he forgets there’s no school on weekends. He comes home telling us the names of the staff there and happily smiles to himself, with great contentment.
We receive almost daily feedback from our LO’s teacher, the preschool owner and even the aunties who care for him.
He eagerly lunges forward to hug the aunties whenever he sees them in the mornings – another first that he’s ever done to someone other than Daddy and Mommy.
This school lives up to its tagline “where every child blossoms”. Our LO has certainly blossomed under the loving care of the staff there.
We are so glad we made the switch and we continue to pray that our LO and all the children there will blossom into individual with great characters and personalities.
