“Aunty Khong cooks for us every day. She is happy because the other Aunties are helping her.’’
Voices from The Parents
“We first sent Zayn to Child at Street 11 when he was only 8 months old. The teachers are always patient with Zayn and take care of him with so much love. The most surprising to us was that Zayn was able to follow the dance steps during the graduation ceremony. We thought he’ll just stand/sit or even cry on stage. This must have been putting a lot of effort to make this happen! Really appreciated it and thankful to the teachers for their efforts in creating a wonderful environment for the children.”
"We are so happy to have found Child at Street 11 IFC. We send our baby girl when she was around 3 months old. We can feel she enjoy going to the centre everyday with smiley face and can’t wait to be carried by the teacher. Teachers are very caring to our baby girl and there are lots of activity in the centre. Thanks to the teachers who are taking really good care of Aaliyah."
“My experience working with the school is great. The teachers are very friendly and take initiative towards my kid. It’s not easy to take care of my kid as my kid has learning needs.. But the teachers work with us by asking us how to handle him so that they can handle him better. The determination of the teacher to take care of the kids is wordless. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the principal and the teachers for the effort that you all have put in.”
“Ryan Ting is able to adapt to the school environment. The main reason being the friendly and caring staff and teachers. He has a lot of friends in C11. We can see that he enjoys the school activities, especially the excursions. He is always happy when the teachers accompany him while waiting for us. Till today, Ryan has learnt to sing songs, write a few letters and numbers, draw simple shapes and speak English well. We believe that these are all the efforts and hard work by the school teachers.”
"Child@St11's infant care centre exceeded our expectations in caring for our little one. Within days of enrolment, they sent us a photo of our daughter beaming with joy, which instantly assured us that she was in great hands. The teachers also went above and beyond by sending our daughter a lovely dress during the Christmas season, which was a heartwarming gesture that we will never forget. We are grateful for the love and care our daughter received at Child@St11 and highly recommend them to any parent looking for a nurturing environment for their child."

Thank you teachers for the love, care and motivation for teaching our little ones."

“The first day of school for Deyan were like riding a bicycle up and down the hills. Sometimes he was calm and receptive to the school and the new norms and at other times anxious and expressive wanting his mummy and daddy to comeback to fetch him home. However, the teachers at Child at Street 11 and us together managed to calm his nerves and now he is happy to go to school. The next big achievement was making him wear the uniform and that he has come to accept too. Thank you teachers for your hard work and perseverance. "
