Parent of Max (Graduated) , Eva (K2) Isa (K1)

I’m a mother of 4 and I have enrolled 3 of my children into Treasurebox (TB) since 2012. I still remember my firstborn, Max, who never fails to cry and refuse to attend classes each time i brought him there. He even throws frequent tantrums by rolling on the floor of the school’s car porch that I had pick him up and drag him inside just to attend classes.

My experience in Treasure Box has been an extremely memorable one. The teachers were very friendly and understanding, and showed immense care for me. At times when I was unable to grasp certain concepts, they would patiently help and guide me until I understood them.

  • I’m a mother of 4 and I have enrolled 3 of my children into Treasurebox (TB) since 2012. I still remember my firstborn, Max, who never fails to cry and refuse to attend classes each time i brought him there. He even throws frequent tantrums by rolling on the floor of the school’s car porch that I had pick him up and drag him inside just to attend classes. It’s quite a heartbreaking experience for any first-time parent, however the teachers at TB were very kind, helpful and reassuring. They will come out and assist me by carrying my son, calming him down, talking to him, encouraging him and shower him with praises when he stops crying. This daily “routine” carried on for an entire year. They are very sympathetic towards parents and children. Unlike other schools which endorses “no-visiting” policies once the child is present in school, TB allows parents to visit any time of the day as some parents might want to check on their children from time to time just to have a peace of mind. In addition, TB has an established, systematic notification system to inform and update parents on their children curriculum, be it via E-Portal, word of mouth from the teachers when we pick our kids up or through a notebook. 

    As a parent, important factors (to me) when evaluating a suitable pre-school is not limited to only the level empathy in which the school displays for the children and parents, but also ensuring the environment and the quality of education material that is provided is of exemplary standards. In terms of the environment, TB for the past 6-years has maintained its premises with utmost cleanliness by airing the school on a daily basis, teaching and making sure the children execute the correct hygiene procedures. Every morning, a stringent check on INDIVIDUAL child is being conducted to ensure that they are not having fever, HFMD or any other illnesses which would hence spread to other kids and cause a mass breakout of diseases. Thus allowing HFMD cases to be kept at a minimal level. If a kid is found to have HFMD during the day, the kid will be isolated along with a teacher who would be constantly beside him/her and made available to attend his/her needs until the parents have arrived. This is very reassuring for parents who are at work and requires time to arrange for alternative childcare with relatives. 

    As for teaching materials, I would say TB is definitely a “P1-ready” school even though they are just a childcare and not a standard MOE kindergarten. Unlike most childcare whereby they focus on taking care of the child and making sure the child has the basic pre-school knowledge, TB surprisingly goes one-step beyond. Children at k1 and k2 level are taught primary one syllabus such as hanyu pinyin, additions and subtractions, science (in terms of their day to day interactions, spellings and many more. The children are educated to have personal responsibilities such as; packing of their own bags, doing of their homework/s, practicing of purchasing stuff using specimen money and being independent by taking care of themselves. Unlike government subsidised pre-schools, TB organises many excursions in a year to various interesting venues in Singapore such as Kidzania, watching of musical plays or even going to the Science Centre. These trips provides the opportunities and enables the children to learn outside of their classrooms. This is beneficial for the children as, not only do they enjoy themselves through the educational trips, they also learn the intrinsic value on how to follow instructions, behave in public and so much more. My firstborn, MAX,  is currently studying P3 in Pei Chun Public School and he has no trouble bridging from pre-school to primary 1. He has always been one of the top few students in his class and is currently taking higher Chinese. He doesn’t attend any external tuition classes and is always responsible in completing his own homework on time.

    I will definitely recommend TB to any parents out there who wants to give their children a good foundation to start of their studies and at the same time enable their children to enjoy a school-life balance childcare. It is the good memories, friends and experiences which we would want to create for our children which would stay with them for life.  My 4th child will be enrolling in the year 2019 into their toddler class. I hope to meet more new parents there.

  • Treasure Box child development centre had laid a solid foundation on speaking and writing for both my sons from N1 to K2. Indeed my boys have blossomed into confident and independent children with the unwavering support and guidance from the teachers. It is with great pleasure that i write this testimonial. My elder son had achieved an outstanding academic results during P1. I knew i had made the right choice to enrol them in this centre.

    I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the following teachers, Ms Yang and Ms Juvien. With Ms Yang and her introduction of Chinese calligraphy and Di Zi Gui. My son has greatly improved his concentration and patience. He has also developed an interest for Chinese language.

    With the introduction of enrichment programs (like mathematics model drawing, young chef time, water play lesson, sports ball, phonics, abacus, going on excursions and many more), Ms Juvien has made a mother like me, who stays in Sengkang, choose this preschool. This place is spacious with its own playground and the classroom is always lively, full of inquisitive children and interactive teachers. The teachers are nurturing and loving while providing guidance towards my boy. The small class size ensures excellent involvement between teacher and child.

    As a parent, i feel connected as we often receive their learning progress through the class tree apps. I am very contented with the services rendered by the child care. Thank you to all the teachers. Thank you Treasure Box!!

  • You guys determine our responses to circumstances! One memory of treasure box I had is that you guys are always so enthusiastic when sharing and teaching! And it in turn influenced me to share enthusiastically with my parents about what I learnt in childcare when they fetched me!! You guys are setting the standards for character and excellence in our lives!! 

    Also, I think it also helped me build up my foundation and realize what I want to do in life. I think in treasure box, I was really allowed to explore what I like to do (which was building things), and even growing up I still build things! Even recently, it reminded me about my passion to be an architect and therefore I wanted to change my course and pursue architecture instead.

    I think the most amazing thing about teachers during our early childhood is that you guys are inspiring the next generation… Whether they want to save lives, become doctors, think out of the box, or just go with the flow, follow the hype, chase after popularity, and just be a copy… Because during that time, we didn’t know how the world works, and in fact, that was our world. 50% of our time are spent at the childcare. Everyone at that time were just curious about anything and everything!

    Just really grateful for being in treasure box, even though not everyone might feel that way, but I do! Because I know you guys gave your best, and are still doing so after 15 years! 🙂

  • My experience in Treasure Box has been an extremely memorable one. The teachers were very friendly and understanding, and showed immense care for me. At times when I was unable to grasp certain concepts, they would patiently help and guide me until I understood them. They also made the effort to get to know me better by interacting and talking to me. Being able to perform at every year-end annual concert became a joy for me because not only did it allow me to showcase the hard work I have put in my performance to my family, it has also enabled me to overcome my fear of standing in front of a crowd and be a more outspoken person in the long run.

    Treasure Box had also made me enjoy learning not only through books, but also through their all-rounded curriculum like interesting cooking lessons, hands-on activities, and creative art and crafts lessons which eventually developed my interest in the Arts.

    Treasure Box went the extra mile to ensure that all my needs were met and that I was well taken care of, which I am extremely grateful for. It is in Treasure Box that I found another home away from home.
