Chinese Taipei School (KL) Kindergarten

We plan to enroll Sarah to kindergarten only in year 2011 but somehow we would start to explore the options available, especially in our area; just like last Sunday, we brought her to Chinese Taipei School (KL) Kindergarten open day.



The place is just five minutes drive away from our house. Sarah behaved well on the day, although she started with a little uneasiness when we reached the school; but things changed once she saw my neighbour Kiyo’s son was there too.



Sarah just following us visits the classrooms one by one; those classrooms fill with music instrument would able to attract her attention particularly. There was a moment I felt very proud of her - she was able to follow a teacher’s instructions well and enjoy the process when the teacher guiding her to play the Hoola-Hoop.



From the management we gathered that the Primary and Secondary school is only reserved for Taiwanese or foreigner, but for kindergarten they do accepted local.

I must say the school environments are conductive for learning and their tuition fee are quite reasonable; but the only things that holding us back are the medium language…

Sarah likes the place so much that she doesn’t want to go home at the end. We really hope these exposures will enlighten and teach her the meaning of “school” as we always mentioned to her.

As for the enrollment, we still have time; we just keep our options open.

gaiki said...

The kindergarden looks big and nice environment.

Do ask if they have trial period. Some kindergarden do gave parents to tried out for 1 week FOC to see if their child is suitable.

LittleLamb said...

ITs a good school.....
nice choice if u finally decide it.

MeRy said...

The school environment looks good...i guess the fee must be expensive since the primary & sec is targetted for foreigner & taiwanese only.Does it mean their main language will be Mandarin instead of English?
So will Sarah enroll for Taska next yr? I plan to enroll Taska next yr.

Joanne, must be quite difficult to search for kindie ya? Have u decided when you want to send Sarah to kindie?
I am staying in cheras so even harder for me to decide where to bring my boy for kindie. Although there're many kindie, but the traffic is horrendous...
Joanne, u stay in kemuning area aR? hahaha one day I bring both my boys go play at Sarah slides...

Wonderful Life said...

little prince's mummy said...

No rush, you still got a lot of time to search for kindy!~

2ma said...

Mummy Gwen said...

It's an international school right? It's a good kindie but is their system follow our national curiculum or not..this one you need to consider too.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

2ma:
Actually the Taipei Kindy only a single storey building, and the big one is actually the primary and secondary school.
Yes, there is still a year for me to decide the right kindy for Sarah, so I will take my time to check it.
Happy Weekend to you too.

Kylie:
Hehe, yes...that's what we think too:-)
How about Sean? Will he going to kindy next year?

Doreen:
The environment is good and the kindy is really clean. I like it;-)

Lynette:
Yea, it is not easy to find a right kindy for our kid and it really needs time.
I am planning to enroll Sarah in the year 2011.
How about you? Planning to send Manfred to kindy soon? How old is he now?
Ooo, you are staying at Cheras? My uncle is staying there too.
If the traffic is bad within your area, then I guess is better to get a kindy nearby, but of course the environment must be nice and clean for kids.
Yes, I am staying near Kota Kemuning. You are familiar with this area?
Sure, feel free to bring Jude and Manfred here.

Mery:
The environment there is really good and clean. And surprisingly the fees is not so expensive and it almost the same as others kindy.
The kindy uses Mandarin as medium of communication which makes me and my husband hold back of our decision of sending Sarah there in future.
We will enroll Sarah to kindy in year 2011.
Good that Ryan will be going to school soon. I am sure he will loves it.

Rachel:
I like the school too as it is clean and has some compound for kids to run around:-)

Kitty:

Good suggestion about the trial period. Will check with the teachers in our next kindy hunting:-) Thanks!

Lynn:
You are staying near Kota Kemuning too? I did not know that neither:-)
For Sarah, she was blurred when the teacher was talking to her in Mandarin, but luckily the interpreter (which is me) was there.

Moon:

Sarah was quite enjoyed the moment when she was playing the toys, but I am not too sure about studying, hehe.

Sha:
The fees is not expensive. It is almost the same like other kindies. It is about RM250 monthly.
You are still thinking yeah about the right time to sent Sha to school, hehe. For me, I think 2011 will be good for Sarah.

Kathy:

Cynthia:
Yalor....see see and look look for kindy info:-)
Yes, sometimes I do need some "me" time but I think it is more impt for Sarah to mix around with other kids.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Mommy Gwen:
I think consider half half, coz their primary and secondary school only accepted foreign students but not kindy. :-)
The kindergarten is following M'sia curriculum.

Kristie said...

yes, never too early to check out and survey educational instutions around ur area! few yrs down the road is actually a very fast thing... :)

good to expose sarah to more kids and diff environments too!

Joanne said...

I like the playground there, very big :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Joanne:
The kindy has 2 playgrounds. The one that shown in the pic is a bit wear-out. But it is really big!:-)

Kristie:
I agreed with you Kristie. I like to plan things ahead and for me, education is something needs to plan early too.

Blessed mum said...

wow! this school is BIG!!!!

Michelle:
The school has a big compound and it even has two playround. Kids will surely love it.

Dora said...

oh my impression is the same like others, this kindy is so big!

ChloeRuoyi said...

Looks like a very nice school. Cleanliness is the most important thing i look for in a kindy/school. You don't intend to let Sarah learn Mandarin? Since u mentioned that this is holding back your decision...

lyncpf513 said...

Joanne,
I am quite familiar with KK area. My sister is staying in bukit rimau. And previously her hubby family stays in KK. So we visit quite often. Then a few of my friends also staying in that area. Also we once "shop" for new home there.... Long story.

I am thinking to enrol Manfred to kindie when he turns 3. earliest also 2.5yo... Still thinking.. maybe i will stretch longer and try to enrol both Manfred and Jude together gether..

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Lynette:
No wonder you are familiar with KK aread, you have a sister who is staying here, hehe.
For me, I started to familiar with the routes and ROUNDABOUTS after staying here for 2 years. I am sure you know that they are a lot of roundabouts here:-)
Good idea. If both brothers going to kindy at the same time, they will have accompanion.

HweiiLi:
Correct. Hygienic issue is important too. And the kindy does maintain the place very clean.
Actually me and my husband using Mandarin in our daily conversation, so we wont worry that she will not picked up mandarin in future. We are more concern about her English proficiency.

Dora:
The kindy looked very big hor, but the most important thing is, it is clean.

wenn said...

it's good to start early with other language..children learn fast..

Ann said...

The kindy looks like a big place. Very specialised. Good that the fees are still affordable!

All the best in choosing and really hope Sarah will love it as much when the real day comes.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Ann:
Yes, it is quite big and also clean.
We were surprised too that they do not charge high fees.
Thanks. We will try our best to find a good one for Sarah.

agnes said...

wow, the school looks nice and clean.. :)

yea, understand ur concern and I will be having the same concern too since we speak mainly mandarin with chloe at home too..

and decided to enroll her to chinese primary next.. so that will be good if she can expose w english more at kiddy ya?

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Agnes:
hihi...welcome back to my blog.
How is Jayden boy doing?
Yes, the kindy really look very clean. I think that's very important thing for us to look for for kindy hunting.
When you plan to send Chloe to kindy?
Yes, I think English is important as a medium of communication in nowadays.

UmmiRosma said...

The kindies looks really nice and condusive to the kindie kids...I love it. Sarah sure will have good times there...but...she doesnt want to go home ya? Doesnt the school have nursery level dear? At least Sarah can join the nursery class for the time being.

FAMILY FIRST said...

This kindy looks so HUGE!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Ummi:
As a teacher, I am sure you will know that what is the best environment for kids and glad that you also have the same comment as other mommies that the kindy look good and nice.
Yes, she has a great time there because the teacher let her played with the hoola hoop. She loved it!
I wonder what is the nursery means? You mean a "kindy" for younger kids? Sometimes I am confused btwn the terms of nursery and kindergarten.

Family First:
The kindy has a beutiful environment and it is clean and neat.
