I find the cost for this centre rather high at $700 per month but it's nice for both me and Faris to have an extra 2 hours of sleep because the centre is so near and convenient to my workplace. My colleague later shared that there is a childcare centre at Hougang that cost only $300 with Malay and religion being taught. Told wife to check it out.
In the meantime, I hope Faris continue to learn and enjoy himself there.
Update (11 May 2014)
The convenience of having my son placed in a childcare that is near my workplace is really fantastic. One thing that I find lacking in every childcare is the offer of Malay as 2nd language. I guess the issue is not having enough Malay kids to actually warrant the childcare centre to teach Malay. On a positive notes, there are 3 Malay teachers at Cambridge Sengkang and I'm happy to see them talking to Faris in Malay.
In terms of additional activities, most of the external excursions would cost more than $100 and would require mommy or daddy to go... really...
Oh, because the centre is actually a semi-detached house, I found my son coming home with all sorts of insects bites on his legs... my wife bought the J&J mosquito lotion and I applied it on his legs every morning and the result has been positive!
Most importantly, my son enjoys going to school. While parents may worry about the things being taught, I felt it's important for him to be able to socialise with other kids and adults. Now, if only he can stop his baby talk already...
