Will my child be able to follow the lesson/activities if he/she does not know how to read?

Every child develops at a different rate and with our phonics and reading programme (Letterland), your child will be exposed to many reading materials while at nursery.

Will I know who will be my child’s class teachers before the start of school?

Yes, you will and there would be regular opportunities for you to meet with your child’s class teachers.

How can I keep up with what’s going on with my child in class?

The Early Years department (nursery & pre-school) uses the LittleLives virtual platform to communicate with parents. Updates such as monthly newsletters, photographs of activities, school calendar and event calendar are uploaded regularly.

How can I be more involved in my child’s learning and development?

You are most welcome to join us at every opportunity such as School events and parents-in-class activities that are held every term, parents’ curriculum tea (January), and parent-teacher conference (March and September).

Children experience anxiety when going through changes or difficulties such as nightmares, death in the family, divorce, illness, new baby, or simply a change in routine. We would appreciate it if you would notify us of such changes and rest assure that all information is kept confidential.

What forms of security does the School implement to ensure the safety of my child?

We have a Sign In & Sign Out policy. A Parent or Guardian or Person authorised by the Parent (duly advised/named on Pickup Authorisation form) must sign the child in and out each day. Anyone picking up the child from this programme must be named on the Pickup Authorisation form and provide identification upon request. Children will only be released to people listed on the Pickup Authorisation form. The Parent or Guardian may update the form at any time by contacting the staff in person or in writing. If necessary, changes may be made by filling out a new form. Children aged 12 and under must be signed out by an authorised individual 18 years of age or older. Custody issues require special attention and may require authorisation by both parents.

What if I am late to pick up my child?

A late fee of RM50 for every 15 minutes will be applied. If your child is constantly left to wait for pick up, the school will take further action by raising the fee. Children become upset when parents are not on time, so please call the office if you know you will be late. Our Staff members are not allowed to take your child home.

What if I can’t pick up my child? Can someone else do it?

Only people who have been named in the pickup authorisation form can pick up your child. However, you may also call the office to notify us should you need to make other pick up arrangements. Our Staff members will not release your child to anyone who is not authorised by you.

How are tuition fees paid?

Tuition fees are paid each semester, which is three times a year. You can make your payment at our finance office during office hours or when you pick up/drop off your child.

Will my child need to wear a uniform?

Yes. Children are required to wear school uniform and covered shoes to school daily.
