When is the best time to send baby to school. And why?? If you dont send. At what age u send. And why? I dont know if i want to send or dont. Expenses that i am worried. Any subsidy or etc?? Please help.
It depends on your financial . For me i dont send my baby to school earlier neither do i send them infant care. I will wait till about 3 years old then i enrol my child to child care. To me , i think its their childhood so i prefer him to enjoy a childhood life insteas of being pressurize in school and for infant or kids below 3 wont be learning much things in school. as those under 3 are more into play than learn . And those basic things cam be taught at home easily. However i will try enrol enrichment class or so when i think my child is ready as i dont think i need to spend unnecessary money on things which might not be useful at the moment and i prefer home school during the first 3 years at the same time i can bond with my baby. Because after 3 years old , they get to know things and understand certain things so its easy for them to digest their work from school and time spent after 3 years old will be lesser with son.Read more
I would be sending at 18 months because I think they will learn to socialise, work with peers as well as independence. I feel these are the things home school will not be able to Match. Moreover for homeschool it depends a lot on the discipline of the caregiver. Are u able to really sit down n "teach" the kids for like afew hours each day?Read more
i sent mine at 20months old. yes there is subsidies for working mum and additional subisies for income below 7k for both parents. you can try sourcing for a cheaper CC (sparkletots) but the waiting list are usually very high. so try it out. for those schools, usually aft subs it's cheaperRead more
My friend who is a primary school teacher recommended to send at least to nursery class. Coz at kindergarten level, they start to prepare the kid for primary school. There is the $300 subsidy for working mums.
Homeschooler here. Homeschooling does not equate to being alone w your child a few hrs. There are such things as a co-op where you meet fellow homeschooling kids and learn together.
around 18 months & there's childcare subsidy for working mothers
