Art and Craft

Qiqi really like art and craft. Her teacher even commented she enjoys a lot and make sure she colors and does a good job which others at her age dont. I guess this does have some genes similarity with his dad.

I bought her make some art and craft at nex while we were waiting for daddy. She tolds me the old one at home is spoil already so we need to make another new one.

Her complete work!

Look how happy she is! Noe is pasting proudly at our overflooded fridge with cute magnets and art work...

Last day of school

For memory purpose, this post came in real late but yet essential that we cannot miss it.

We have left enrichment classroom and on to Agape!
Reason being it has always been straining to pay for everything now and soon auntie's contract is going to end and if we renew her mummy could no longer afford it. Besides that we have to consider next year the timing will change and afterall mummy hopes i can learn more lifeskills too. If mummy wants to put me to a longer timing childcare mummy have to do it now before all the spaces run out.

With me now much stronger, mummy decided to try childcare again so our financial problems will be less straining.

Of course with such a good school, it will be wasted to let it go thus mummy have enrolled for me an additional weekend class to let me continue my phonics class which it will help me gain the skills of reading faster. Cross fingers all work out well!

3rd Day of School

Its the 3rd Day of school and Alicia is starting to adapt Agape.

She calls the school "Bear School". Although she crys a little here and there, it was still manageble. We are just keeping our fingers cross every single day.

Monday although is a monday blue for us but it seems good for her at school. The curiculam was pretty fun esp there was gym kids for her so to her it was a lot of fun.

When we went to pick her up, she was in all smiles. Hope this goes on and on.

The teacher even tie a scorpion hair style which was cool...

Ok! Time to go home!

Childcare at Agape

Alicia started her childcare at 1 Dec 2011 at Agape. This is first day of school and alicia woke up earlier than usual.

The children were watching tv and some were having breakfast. The bad part i think about this school is they like to drown the children with tv programs and the whole morning it was almost just tv, national anthem and karaok. It was quite dissapointing that they can do a lot of things instead like morning exercise, read a storybook, talk abt safety, teach children songs and nursery rhymes. They gave me the feeling like they were passing by time with no plan of what they want to do. The teachers can do things halfway and suddenly switch to another activity. It let me remember the days where qiqi was in first skool and i try not to think abt it. I just had to keep telling myself its dec and they have no curriculam to teach the children.

But of course yet it was still not as bad as first skool experience but its just that alicia previous preschool really spoilt the market and they were really good i just cant help comparing. choice..Last year my expectation to the school is education is very important but nw childcarin is also important thus i couldnt be fussy and pick on it. It let me wonder are all childcare like that? I decided to close two eyes...

Of course they arent all that bad.. I personally find the school makes a lot of effort decorating the school making it bright and cheerful. They even have a website for the parents to view what the kids have learnt or doing at school.This was a plus point. They even create a file for all the children with a lot of pictures of the past half year and their progress. This i nv saw it at first skool nor kidzone,

And there are so many fun trips for the children every term which is also a plus point cause i wan alicia to enjoy and love her school. Thus i decided to press on. Hopefully after the transit is over, it will be much better. Press on! Qiqi and mummy!

Pretty qiqi

I believe everyone has their own style of dressing up their children and their own set of prettiness of defination. Thats why some like to get this and some like that design. For me, this was the prettiest qiqi at her casual self which i bought the clothes for her. Fyi i hardly need to buy clothes as she got lots of hand down clothes and gifts.

I really like this match. Not too drama but look very sweet and a ballerina liked that she wore this she was so happy dancing around like this on top.

Then she go all posing around with her cute moves.

No need expensive clothes for children. She just look so cute and sweet like this

Its pizza time again and decided to let qiqi do some diy cooking.

It was actually quite easy and fuss free. Just buy the ingredients and cut them in small pieces, then use ur imagination or preference and mix and match. Here is the end result. Bottom mine, middle qiqi and top is daddy's!

After 10 min of baking, we can enjoy the pizza.

Withdraw qiqi out of Letterland sch

It is with a heavy heart that in a few hours time, i will be submitting the withdrawl of school for Alicia from her Letterland school.

During alicia toddler years she went to kidzone for childcare but little emphasis was on the education. Most importantly was she was able to learn some discipline and life skills. Unfortunately she kept getting sick and we had to keep her at home which help and now she is almost declared asthma free. We employed sutikah and thing was pretty smooth till nursery 2 this early part of the year we had to put her bac and learn something. She went to pap then first skool but none of them the syllabus i was satisfied as she didnt learn anything at all. Until we decided on Enrichment classroom.

She quickly adapted over there and i cannot disagree the english and math syllabus was very good. Alicia was actually learning way beyond K1 now. She was actually of her future school syllabus.

Sadly the chinese syllabus was pretty weak thus we supplement with tien hsia. Without a doubt all the money was all worth it.

Every Monday we will look forward her taking art and crafts bac and we will paste them on the wall. She made many friends there and she will tell who she played with.

But coming to the end of the year, mummy have to start thinking and decide for Alicia. Sutikah contract is going to end and we will hv to raise her salary. Together with all the rising cost, we could no longer afford the luxury now we have. If we will to even stick on the current situation, mummy is hoping to get another sibling for Alicia and even with a maid, Alicia will still have to be in a childcare as its difficult to handle 2 children at 1 time. By then it will be too late to find Alicia a school as she will be K2 and childcares will be difficult to find.
We just have to make this decision now while there is still a seat for Alicia. Thus we decided to go for Agape just downstairs our house, since alicia was an infant, mummy has always wanted to put alicia in as the syllabus they provide are interesting but it was way too expensive thus we had to travel far just to put her in but after the calculations after 2 years we can afford now as it worth it if she can learn something over there. There will be complimentary enrichment classes provided like abacus, phonics, chinese speech and drama, gym stuff so all of them its pretty worth it.
With is impending change, we will loose sutikah, enrichment classroom and tienhsia. The current method which is working but soon to loose it because of financial problems. To be frank till now my heart is pretty heavy for this decision that i make.

God! Please dont let me make the wrong decision! Please Alicia love this school and make friends. Please let her learn more than what she does now. There is no turning back for us now . Please! Make it work! :(
