What Parents Say

A definite A++ service for principal, Ms Esther and to all the lovely teachers.
Searching for a preschool for my five-month-old is definitely not an easy task for me especially having all sorts of doubts in my mind as a working parent. Enrolling my little one at the very last minute has indeed caused me much stress since I am fully aware that by then most of the preschools would have left only limited slots, have a long-waiting list or have no vacancies at all. However with a very positive mind-set, I went forward to approach MY World @Canberra and it was such a great blessing that most of my worries were eased immediately and sending my child to MY World @ Canberra could fit into my schedule.

I want to take this opportunity to sincerely express a very big thank you to MY World @ Canberra Centre Principal, Miss Esther and her team of teachers. Ever since my little one started her infant care till playgroup now, I never once had to be worried to leave her alone and all these can happen because of the teachers who were always attentive, caring, responsible and friendly. They are filled with cheerfulness whenever they receive or return my child.

What makes me even more comforting as a parent is to know that every time when my child returns from school, she carries a smile on her face and would sing all the songs that were taught in class to me.
Once again, thank you Centre Principal Ms Esther for your kind advice whenever I need and thank you all for being such awesome teachers to Adra!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone for all the help rendered to Yukai (N1 class) to settle down in the preschool environment. I understand it has been challenging as he is still trying to adjust amidst all the whining, crying and refusal to eat. Special thanks to Teacher Isah and Teacher Liu, Principal and Kelly for being so patient and assuring me, as a parent that it takes time and they will do their best to help Yukai. I am glad I chose My World Preschool. Thank you once again.

Our son, Sy Le attended MY World@Sims since he was 4.5 years old and it had been a wonderful experience for the whole family ever since. Sy Le has grown from a shy boy to a confident student. He enjoys attending lessons and going to school is one of his best moments. He would come back home and share with us his learnings especially the stories which were told in class.
With full trust and confidence, I know that I have left Sy Le in good hands and am assured of his daily growth in all areas.
I would like to recommend MY World@Sims to all prospective parents. It is a great school to give your child a ‘Solid Rock Head Start’ in life. It has definitely done that for Sy Le!
Thank you MY World@Sims for all that you do! Special thanks to teacher Priscilla, Jiang laoshi and teacher Karen for all that you have given to my boy!

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.

Dear Madame Koh and my MYMCA Family,
I will be celebrating my 7th Birthday Party with my new school, classmates and teachers in Primary 1. I remembered, I have celebrated my 5th and 6th Birthday Party in MY World @ Sims. It was just like yesterday, and I can still hear all the cheers and birthday greetings to me from my MY World @ Sims’ family. My happy 3 years (from Nursery 2 to Kinder 2) with my MY World family, I will truly treasure in my heart and bring with me as I move to my new journey as a Primary 1 student.

Again, big thank you to Madame Koh, Teacher Karen, Teacher Priscilla, Jiang Lao Shi, MY World teaching team and staffs for all your love, care, support and guidance for the past 3 years. You are not just my teachers and mentors, but I have considered you as my family too! You are a great part of me! Please continue sharing the love to your new children/students. We may all come and go, but the love and memories will live with us.

I am looking forward to come and visit you again, perhaps to bring some Mangoes and sweet treats from Manila, Philippines. God bless you all and more power to MY World Preschool @ Sims.
Thanks.

My husband and I sent our boys, Murphey and Tytus to MY World@Sims in 2008 and 2016 respectively when they were 2 years old. They had since graduated in 2012 and 2016 respectively. MY World Preschool had given them a very good learning foundation which had enabled them to do well in primary school now. Throughout the years, MY World Preschool had also helped to cultivate them not only in academics, but good values in life too.
Thank you to the dedicated teachers and staff for nurturing our boys. We would recommend MY World Preschool to any friends who want their children to have a good head start.

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.

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!

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!

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!
