What Our Parents Say
Children’s Cove is a huge part of Darcie’s life and she has benefitted by your great education supported by great teachers. Darcie has always enjoyed this cosy yet stimulating environment. Thank you Children’s Cove for everything that you do and for being my daughter’s second home. I am forever grateful.
Warmly, Kiyomi (Darcie’s Mom)
Children’s Cove is a great school for those looking for a place where the kids can get lotsa learning in nature. They make the whole school experience so much fun! The school facilities are great, kids get to play a lot outdoors and develop their curiosity by many things outside the classroom, like plants, animals and playing freely. The teachers and staff have created a great safe environment for education and my daughter is always excited to be at school.
– Lim Hui Li (Gladys’s Mummy)
As a Mum sending my child to school, what I really care about before what he learns at school is feeling safe about sending him to school. Feeling safe putting my child in someone else’s care for a big part of his days. That’s exactly what the team at children’s cove has made me feel. So thankful to Teacher Adella, Teacher Jessica, Mi Lao Shi, Gong Lao Shi, and Ms Liza. You have all been AMAZING. Thank you.
– Eugenia, Ethaan, Isaac Mummy
