What Parents Say

One morning, after I dropped my child off, I stood by the window to watch her. That’s when I saw an N1 child crying badly. As soon as the child entered the common area, a teacher comforted her and about six children rushed forward to comfort her. My daughter was one of those who went forward to pat the child and to make eye contact with her. I had not seen her do that before. It was very heartwarming because it was the playgroup kids comforting an older N1 child! It must be because of the behaviour modelled by the teachers. I believe that at the end of the day, our children will learn their alphabet and numerals, but it’s the soft skills that will set them apart in the long run. These soft skills can’t be taught, they have to be caught. Well done, MY World @ Boon Keng, for demonstrating empathy and impacting our young ones!  Read More

When we visited, we saw how dedicated the teachers were. We witnessed teacher Irene (now principal of MY World @ Boon Keng) acting out an animal story to the children with a pair of bunny ears. Though she was perspiring profusely, she managed to put up a convincing act. Her passion in her work really touched my heart and I still remember it vividly after all these years. I knew right then that this is the right place for my children.  Read More

Even though we are a Chinese-speaking family, our children managed to pick up English language swiftly after attending the preschool. Now, they are able to communicate with their peers in English confidently. Besides, the teachers also work closely with us to help our children. In addition, our girl, Gracia Lee, really loves her teachers, such as Teacher Deborah, 杨老师 and Teacher Yvonne, whom have guided her through these years and put in extra efforts to help our little

Our daughter Wen Kee is not an easy child to care for or teach, but Teacher Michelle Low has shown tremendous patience and love in coaxing her to eat her food and learning to be a more cheerful and out-spoken girl in class. Teacher Michelle is a very dedicated educator who would genuinely care for the welfare and learning of her students. She is always observing her charges and providing relevant feedback to concerned parents like us. All this would not have been possible without the able principal-ship (leadership) of Mrs Jane Lee as well.

I would like to send my sincere thanks to Yang Lao Shi. Ever since Ryan joined N1 in 2012, he has improved his Mandarin tremendously – From not able to recognise any Chinese characters to liking the language, understanding it and speaking more of it with us at home. Yang Lao Shi is truly a dedicated and passionate teacher who shares her knowledge with our children and teaching them the good values in life. Ryan has learned a lot from her and she has indeed done a wonderful job as his teacher. Thank you for being such a great example to our son!

The best decision I made was to transfer my daughter to MY World last year. Since the switch, she has blossomed from a little girl who survives on mainly milk and who hardly speaks Mandarin into a happy girl with improved eating habits. She looks forward to going to school everyday. What's more, she comes home reciting Mandarin Nursery rhymes, singing English songs and telling me what her teachers taught her in school each day. As a parent, I look forward to bedtime as she will share endless stories about her friends and teachers with me. Thanks to Teacher Jackie and Teacher Nathiya for their stewardship!  Read More

My favourite teacher is now teaching my child! I was a student in Metropolitan YMCA Childcare and Development Centre at Bishan from 1991 to 1993. My preschool years were pleasant, largely due to the preschool teachers in the centre. They were gentle and assuring, and I remembered one particular teacher vividly – Mdm Cheng. This year, I enrolled my daughter in the Playgroup class at MY World @ Bishan. Imagine my surprise and delight to see Mdm Cheng still teaching at the centre! It is obvious to me that this centre has Champions who believe in nurturing and caring for the children.  Read More

While we are all excited about Yue Yi entering a new phase of life as a P1 student, we know that she will miss MY World Preschool, her close friends and favourite teachers too. The patience, care and love that they have rendered over the years have helped Yue Yi grow and develop each day. Once a 'cry baby' who had severe anxiety, she has now grown into a confident, resilient and happy child. We truly treasure the time Yue Yi spent at MY World Preschool, whose life you’ve touched and inspired tremendously.

As parents, I can see MY World Preschool is unlike other profit-driven childcare centres, but a committed preschool centre with the focus of instilling good values and conscience to children. It also emphasises on the development of the children’s self-esteem and well-being. May all your staff be affirmed and hope that they remain passionate in doing such excellent work.

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all the teachers at MY World @ Tampines Central who have taught our daughter, Elena Lee, from N2 to K2. Teacher Ann, Teacher Yvonne, Teacher Nur, Teacher Deborah, Teacher Gina and Yang Lao Shi are those who really touched our hearts with their dedication and love towards our child. They really made a difference in Elena’s life. We are very glad that God has made them part of her childhood learning journey and she has since grown up well under their care. Thank you all teachers for your good work. Well done!

PARENTS COMMUNICATION

We believe greatly in building a solid partnership with you as a parent for the well-being and development of your child.

If you have any concerns at all about your child, please feel free to approach our teachers, principals and staff. We are more than happy to speak with you, so we can partner with you on your child’s development.

Communication with our teachers takes place through day-to-day conversations and short updates during morning drop-offs and evening pick-ups, as well as the more formal opportunities listed below.

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES

Parent/Teacher Conferences are great opportunities to discuss your child’s development with his/her teachers. These are held at least twice a year where you can discuss your concerns and also to gain insights about your child’s behaviour, preferences and progress.

PARENT SURVEYS

We conduct written surveys at least once a year. However, you do not have to wait for a formal survey to give us your feedback. We strive to constantly improve and adapt, and your ideas and feedback will help us do better.


LETTERS AND NOTES

We keep you updated on important matters like health updates and key events (e.g. centre closure or excursions dates) through letters and notes.

CENTRE EVENTS

The centre hosts special events such as New Year Gathering, Christmas Party and Sports Day from time to time. Join in the fun! You are more than welcome to contribute your skills in the area of food preparation, photography, performances, games and competitions (as a game master, referee or judge). Your child will love to see you getting involved, and you will get to observe your child interacting with his/her peers.

PARENTS GIVEBACK

MY World Preschool is founded by Metropolitan YMCA which has a strong ethos of community service.

We welcome parents to participate in our community outreach activities. These activities are often an eye-opener for both parents and children, and seeing you in action serving the needy will leave a deep impression on your children like nothing else can.

MY MANNA: PROVISIONS WITH A MISSION

At Metropolitan YMCA, a provisions bank was set up to supply essential food items to the poor and needy. Children and their families donate essential provisions to this provisions bank, which is then used to bless the community. This is a great opportunity to encourage your child to look beyond themselves and to think of those who are not as fortunate as they are.

MY CHILD CARES! NURTURING YOUNG HEARTS

This initiative invites children, families and staff to embrace the joy of giving and sharing by participating at MY Manna provision distribution and by visiting some of the beneficiaries at their homes.

Thank you for caring for the poor and loving the needy in practical ways!
