Parents, kindly give me your opinion without any derogatory remarks.
My girl is 4yr plus. She was born end of the year. We thought that she would be in K1 next year. After half of the year passed, someone mentioned that she is 5yo this year and should be in K1 this year, not next year.
Singapore Children's Society dropped by my place when I am not around, regards my girl not being in preschool.
We have more than 1 children below age of 6. I am their only caregiver. I intend to start working as we are getting our BTO keys early or mid next year. Currently living in North East area and husband is working near current home (15 mins bus ride away), new place is at North area (20mins - 1hr bus ride away from the current place).
I suggested placing the children in Childcare so I can look for a job. Husband suggested sending our 4yo to pre-school only near current home or his workplace asap.
If you were me, would you:
1. Place 4yo in pre-school near current home asap for now.
2. Place 4yo in pre-school near husband workplace asap for now.
3. Place all in childcare near current home asap.
4. Place all in childcare near husband workplace asap.
5. Place all in childcare near new place asap and look for a job near new place.
Please also note we are facing financial difficulties and intend to approach FSC and SSO for assistance if need to place our children in CC. And that our current location most pre-school and CC are full. However, more CC and pre-school are coming up too.
Appreciate all your input. Thank you!
