on to my school hunting…
i’ve asked my friends of school recommendation that same night. a friend suggested ISYC (Integrated School for Young Learners), located at the back of Marquinton. she said that this is the best pre-school in Marikina.

and so the following day, May 22, after my 9am meeting at Max’s Taytay with a client, i immediately checked ISYC. the school is nice, beautiful classrooms and surroundings, as well as good teachers. the environment is perfect also, and their way of teaching is Progressive, which i think is necessary for my lil boy.

i explained to the teacher my son’s case, and she told me that even if my son is intellectually ready for Prep, he may not be emotionally ready as this is his 1st time to attend school. that’s exactly my point! so she suggested to still enroll him in Nursery, but since Progressive nga sila, individual approach naman daw sila sa kids. so if they see na my son knows the lessons for Nursery already, he will be given advanced materials, so as not to bore him and to enhance him more.

ok na sana lahat, i was already considering the 55K tuition fee, though medyo stiff talaga. but the problem is, there were no more slots!!! waaah! their slots got filled up as early as January pa daw. so she suggested to enroll him for next school year na lang. i can go back daw as early as December to get a slot. hay, ang hirap!

and so on my way back home, i was still looking for other available schools nearby. and luckily, i saw Kids on Focus in Marikina Heights.

i went there and inquired. it was smaller than ISYC but facilities were good also. same progressive style of teaching, talented teachers from UP, Ateneo and Miriam. the owner knows about ISYC and claimed that they are the 2 best schools in Marikina. tuition is stiff also at 53k. yeah, i’m convinced. so i promised to go back that afternoon so they can have my son assessed.

on my way home, i accidentally passed by OB Montessori, Marikina brach. so i went down and inquired also. the ambience wasn’t that nice, medyo madilim ang mga rooms and as the teacher explained, parallel ang style ng teaching daw sa Montessori, meaning, all the kids from Nursery, Kinder and Prep are all together in 1 room, pero different curriculums. and the tuition is affordable at 25k. promised to go back also that afternoon.

so i went home and ate lunch. after that, i took lil boy to Montessori first for assessment. same thing happened, advanced daw ang learning ng anak ko. and it will be good to enroll him there so he’ll be able to socialize with everybody, pati sa mga Prep students, and possible daw nga na bigyan sya ng Prep curriculum na din.

then we went to Kids on Focus after. lil boy had a great time here, kasi there were a lot of alphabet toys which he didn’t want to leave even after the assessment, hehe. teacher assessed him also and same comment din, he can be given advanced materials while he still stays in Nursery class.

after all these, i asked lil boy where he likes best, and he said Kids on Focus. =)

owel, still have to discuss this with hubby first.
