 Parents say...

“I feel so lucky that I found DMP for my son. I still remember the first time I brought my son to visit the school. Uncle Jake and Ms Wendy were very caring and friendly. My son felt immediately at home as he introduced to a lovely big turtle, which was the school pet and also fed a turtle for the first time in this life!
That started a very interesting and fruitful 4 years of pre-school experience for my son as well as me as a parent. dMP is a pre-school that actually delivers a true learning experience which in my definition is not just about maths, grammar or hanyu pinyin. It is more than that. It is about a young child being able to experience the sourness of a lemon; learning how to button a shirt; having a pleasant environment to develop social skills and learn how to communicate with peers and adults; and most important of all enjoying every moment of it.

Each person has only one chance in life to experience childhood and each child is a pre-schooler only but once. dMP has made this experience for our son one that he will treasure and reminiscence about when he gets older.

It has been a privilege and our good luck to be able to have our son be a part of the experience at dMP. I personally endorse dMP and also the wonderful team of Uncle Jake, Ms Wendy, Ms Angela, Lu Laoshi and Ms Furing who work hard to make dMP the top quality pre-school that I would recommend to any parent.”

Wendy, mummy of Hayden, K2, Nov ‘16

Felicia, mummy of Raphael, Pre-Nursery, May '13

Louie, daddy of Aidan, Nursery, May '13

"The past 4 years have truly been amazing for Elkan! From a boy who did not even know his ABCs and 123s, Elkan has matured and grown so much in his journey with dMP. As parents, it is our desire to give our children the best. I am confident that I have provided him with the best possible preschool education by selecting dMP. The Montessori Curriculum has definitely given him a headstart for Primary 1. Most importantly, when he looks back at his childhood, I am sure he will have beautiful and happy memories of the time spent in dMP with his siblings (Elgin & Elyse), friends and teachers.... Thank you very much for the love, care and concern showered on Elkan. Elkan says he will miss dMP a lot!!!!"

Evangelline, mummy of Elkan (K2), Elgin (K1), Elyse (PN), Nov '12

 

"dMP is a small school. One of the greatest benefits is every student will receive sufficient attention from the teachers. Also, there is no barrier to communicate with the teachers or the principal. Problem usually can be addressed quickly. In most of the time, talking to the teachers are like talking to friends. Hence, parents can be fully aware of his child's behaviour in school. The curriculum provided by the school is also sufficient and no enrichment class is needed. The learning environment is relaxing and content is interesting. This is why I can see most of the students go to the school with a smile even after a long school break : )"

Siew Hwee, mummy of Jit, K2, Nov '12

 

"The interaction between school and parents are very consistent and regular. This is very different from other school from previous experience. The approach to education is also more contemporary."

Alvin, daddy of Yong Han, K2, Nov '12

 

"I am glad that I found DMP for my child. Being a year end baby, he needs more attention in every little thing he do. The teachers have done that and had been very patient with him when he was at a difficult stage to handle at first. He has now grown to be a part of the DMP family and I can see some of his improvements in all levels. Thank you very much!"

Shermaine, mummy of Darrence, Nursery, Nov '12

Parent of a K1 student, Nov '12

 

"I remembered the first year When Jan attended school, he was sick most of the time that I almost pulled him off the school. I am glad I did not do it as during these few years, I have seen how the teachers nurture him and how he enjoyed going to school. Julian has joined his brother in school and I know I have made the right choice."

Joey, mummy of Jan (K1) & Julian (Pre-nursery), Nov '12

"

 Dharti, mummy of Jeet, Pre-Nursery, May ‘12

 

"Time flies! It has been almost 3 years since Elkan first joined dMP. I can still remember the days when we were busy searching for the right pre-school for Elkan. In fact, dMP is the 3rd school which we have enrolled Elkan in and our search for the right pre-school ends here. : ) 

The past year has been the most exciting for my family since Elgin joins dMP in Jan 2011. It is a joy to hear the boys talking fondly about the activities which they did in school. They have so much fun in school and they really look forward to going to school everyday!  : ) A big thank you to Jake, Ms Maisy, Ms Veron, He Laoshi and Lu Laoshi for providing Elkan & Elgin with a stimulating and loving learning environment!  Special thanks to Ms Wendy for your patience, for being loving and stern at the appropriate times, for bearing with my boys and answering their never-ending questions.  Looking back, I think my boys have really grown a lot in dMP.  Apart from imparting knowledge, I feel that the curriculum in dMP also focuses a lot on character building.  In my opinion, this is truly what early childhood education is all about. We don't want to bring up a generation of smart but spoilt brats! 

 I am thankful that my boys are in dMP, I truly believe that this is one of the best pre-schools around.  dMP is like a 2nd home to my boys.  Our family is looking forward to next year when our youngest girl can join her brothers in dMP. Like what Elkan always loves to say, "I can't even wait!" : ) "

 Evangelline, mummy of Elkan, K1 & Elgin, Nursery, Nov ‘11

"It was indeed a meaningful and fulfilling journey for Demetrius and its time to say goodbye to dMP and to all the wonderful teachers. We cannot express my satisfaction enough to all the teachers who have each done their very best for the children. The positive attitude that Demetrius has shown towards school (except for his usual dosage of grouses :D ) has assured Louis and myself that we made a right choice to entrust 3 years of his learning path in the right place in the right direction.

We believe Demetrius will feel sad (I am!) to leave the familiar place and all his friends but he is also excited to go into a bigger school next year and knowing more friends.

We hereby would like to wish all the teachers well and may dMP continue to be a successful school as it is today!

Many thanks and best wishes,"

Louis & Euphemia, parents of Demetrius, K2, Nov '09

"Eliza is my second child at dMP.  I like dMP for its low children-to-teacher ratio, therefore the teachers and principal know every child very well and provide regular feedback to parents on their child's progress.  Eliza likes the cosy environment and enjoys the frequent field trips, cookery and art & craft time.  The children are encouraged to express themselves freely and be themselves.  Eliza has become more vocal and chatty after joining dMP."

Angeline, mummy of Eliza, Nursery, Nov '09

 

"Hi Jake and Wendy, just want to share my feedback on the holiday program.  I was rather skeptical about the theme as I wondered how interesting it could be talking about the respiratory and digestive system.  Nevertheless I enrolled him as I didn't want him to laze at home. :)  However, I must say I was amazed with the experiments and with Demetrius sharing his knowledge excitedly. I was very pleased and happy he learnt so much.  It was a great program and as usual, dMP has not disappointed me. :)"

Euphemia, mummy of Demetrius, K2, June '09

 

“It is so difficult to find a school such as yours, holding so true to principle, so tirelessly attentive to detail, so compassionate to every child that comes your way...  Thank you, Jake, for setting up such a wonderful school with your wife, Wendy, and for assembling such a fine team of devoted teachers to guide our young ones.  As parents and educators ourselves, we have been deeply moved by every encounter we've had with the school.  I assure you that I've never acclaimed any other school or group of educators as much as I have done so for this school and neither my husband nor I are known for our compliments!  So it is with every ounce of sincerity when we say that you ought to be very proud of dMP.  You have established something great and we are so assured of Rae Jye's all-rounded well-being, knowing that she is in your fold."

Lih Woon, mummy of Rae Jye, Nursery, May '09

“dMP will be the first school that I will want to send my children to because I know that they are growing and learning in an environment with a holistic development purpose.  My children learned life skills apart from the renowned Montessori curriculum.  The directresses (teachers) are the ones who make a big difference!"

Leng Leng, mummy of Samuel, Nursery, Nov ‘08

 

The teachers are patient and always show a positive attitude towards the children and even parents.  Even the teachers and the children have a bond which is close and unlike just being a typical student and teacher."

Many thanks for being our best partner to nurture our daughter.  Thank you for helping her to cope better and prepare her by giving the best based education with love and care.  Hope to see another school opening in other areas of Singapore so that other children can benefit from the best based education for young kids that dMP has!

Cleina was a very timid type of a child and often does not cooperate in such interactions.  As time goes, she developed her shy personality and became more expressive and interacts with other people."

“At dMP, Siddharth has grown into a confident young boy with a love for learning.  And most important, he loves going to his school!  We feel that the love, patience and individual attention shown by the teachers really helps in making the school a “second home” for Siddharth.”

Shalini, mummy of Siddharth, Nursery, May ‘08

 

“I am deeply impressed with the genuine dedication of dMP’s teachers.  They work tirelessly for the children – I remember when Ms Wendy even called me after office hours to update me on my daughter who had been a bit distressed in school that day.

Recently, the debate regarding whether seat belts should be mandatorily installed in school buses raged on the newspaper forum pages.  I recalled with gratitude how Principal Jake had so readily taken up my suggestion and installed belts in the dMP school bus when I brought it up in casual conversation in 2007.  It’s rare to find school administrators as open and responsible as that!

Not only has my child learnt much from dMP, so have I!  I developed a greater awareness of the Montessori approach and phonics teaching and learning thought dMP’s complimentary parent workshops!”

Lih Woon, mummy of Rae Jye, Pre-Nursery, May ‘08

"This is truly of what my husband and myself think of the school:-

Our daughter, Tan Wei Qi, joined DMP when she was about 2 1/4 years old. She never cried or refused to enter school on the first day and came home with a broad smile on her face. That was amazing to us. Since then she has enjoyed her pre-school days.

 School Program And Curriculum

 Wei Qi loves the school program. This can be evident by her enthusiastic of attending school. At home, she would sing the songs and dance what she has learnt in school. Wei Qi also talks about the activities in school and the classmates.

 However, she never complains about teachers. I would think that is very important factor for a good pre-school as teachers play an important role in children’s up-bringing.

 With the Montessori Program, Wei Qi has developed into an independent and responsible child. She demonstrates them by completing her assignments without many reminders.

 With the school reading program, Wei Qi has cultivated a love to read. She is able to read quite wordy books, such as Enid Blyton, when she was in K1.*

Empathy

 With the friendly environment and patience provided by the teachers, Wei Qi has developed empathy by being a considerate child.

School Concert

 I must also mention this point as not many pre-school in Singapore can make an effort to plan for annual concert. Most pre-school concerts are performed by K2 kids. In DMP, you can see that all kids in all level are given a chance to stand on stage. Wei Qi is very motivated in her performance. Usually, she will “performed” in advance at home for us before the actual day.

Field Trips

DMP also has taken effort to organize field trips which Wei Qi has enjoyed and learnt.

Out Door

 The school program not only confine to classroom learning but outdoor activities are organized to allow kids to expose themselves to sunlight and involve in physical activities too. 

Conclusion:

We are glad that we have selected DMP as the pre-school for Wei Qi. The school has provided her all the memorable happiness and opportunity for her to explore in her learning path.

Once again, we take this opportunity to thanks the school and hope the school will grow so as more kids can join the school and develop their fullest potential.

Thanking you."

Terence and Jenny, parents of Wei Qi , Kindergarten 2, Nov '07

"I must say that the school and all the teachers have done well and the concert indeed was a success.  It's hard work and not easy but the theme, songs and the children's participation were fantastic!  I really enjoyed and very happy that Demetrius has done his best and performed well.  He looks so cute in the costumes.  I guess it was a worthwhile decision to enrol him in the school and I got a few friends asking which school he went to as they heard of the activities he participated and I guess his growth was recognised as well.  Once again, thanks!"

Euphemia, mummy of Demetrius, Nursery, Oct '07

 

"I am very satisfied with your teaching method and even tell my colleagues that I will enrol Syn (my younger girl) in dMP when she reaches the right age.  dMP has laid a good foundation for Ang Oon.  Thanks very much."

Berlinda, mummy of Ang Oon, Nursery, Sep '07

 

“Simone has attended this kindergarten for 1 ˝ years and during this time she has enjoyed going to school and participating in all its activities. The teachers were all very caring and have nurtured her very well. Academically, I am also very impressed with what she has been learning in school as I do not teach her anything at home. She completely learned her numbers, how to read and write from her teachers at school and she continuously amazes me at the new things she is capable of doing all the time. Thank you teachers for making learning so enjoyable for her.”

Melissa, mummy of Simone, Kindergarten 1, Apr '07

 

“This is a kindergarten that you can entrust your child to.  The teachers are patient and kind and allow the child to develop naturally rather than restrict their movements.  Isabelle has developed a lot of self-confidence ever since she joined dMP Kindergarten.”

Wan Tze, mummy of Isabelle, Pre-Nursery, Oct '06

 

“I’m very pleased with the frequent feedback I receive from Nathan’s teachers using the communications book.  With this, it is evident that the students are individually assessed and handled according to their specific needs and abilities.  The weekly circulars are as well very good and allow us to review the topics at home with him.  As for Nathan, he enjoys the outdoor activities most.”

Roda, mummy of Nathan, Pre-Nursery, Oct '06

 

“The teachers in dMP Kindergarten are very committed to their jobs.  I can see their commitments through their daily actions and care and concern shown to the children.  My son, Ethan, who has only been attending dMP for one month is always talking about his teachers at home. Thank you and keep up the good work, dMP! ”

Evina, mummy of Ethan, Pre-Nursery, Oct '06

 

“dMP Kindergarten has a team of dedicated & caring teachers to coach and guide children in their learning in their early years,”

Jamie, mummy of Janka, Kindergarten 2, Oct '06

 

“dMP Kindergarten is a good partner with parents to build the vital foundations for our child’s learning journey.  Adopting and integrating the wholesome Montessori concept and methodology into the curriculum, it has enabled my child to learn in a very caring and stimulating environment and be equipped with vital skills such as independence, confidence, socially-abled and good concentration.  I am particularly happy that the teaching team at dMP faithfully take efforts to keep parents informed and updated on my child’s learning journey milestones!”

Leng Leng, mummy of Megan, Pre-Nursery, Oct '06

 

“Before dMP, she used to speak Singlish to friends but after joining dMP for about 2 months, she now speaks proper English.”

Shirley, mummy of Kristina, Kindergarten 1, Oct '06

 

“Marissa has certainly blossomed since she joined dMP Kindergarten at the beginning of this year.  We’ve seen a marked improvement in her verbal skills – she’s able to express herself rather articulately and self-assuredly.  She has a good grasp of the alphabet and numbers and will spontaneously apply what she has learnt in school by reading whatever she chances upon aloud.  The teachers are nurturing and provide individualised affection.  What I particularly like is how prompt the teachers are in giving feedback about Marissa’s progress and the keen interest they take in her overall development.”

Marietta, mummy of Marissa, Nursery, Oct '06

 

“My girl has very caring teachers and loving guidance.  This school has definitely built my girl and made her a better person.  She is always looking forward to go to school, even when she was sick or she experienced changes at home.  Not only is she taught academically, she is moulded as a whole person.  A good elementary education is the key to a successful education of life.”

Marina, mummy of Phoebe, Kindergarten 1, Oct '06

 

“There are no words to describe how much we appreciate your graciousness towards our daughter Yasmeen when she was schooling at The Montessori Playroom Kindergarten.  You teachers have made a big difference in her life.  It makes us really glad to know that she is learning something new everyday in school.  For that, we want to take this chance to thank all the teachers in dMP Kindergarten for guiding Yasmeen in her early education.  Thank you once again."

Mr and Mrs Weber, parents of Yasmeen, Nursery, Sep '06

 

“We are glad we found a school that shares the same belief, values and approaches towards early childhood learning. It is a place where Kai Zhe learns about the world from his immediate environment to the world at large as a unique individual without pressure and stress. He sees the school as his ‘2nd home’ now where he feels loved and secured to happily learn and explore through independence and group plays. We greatly appreciate the partnership circulars in keeping the parents involved and the other efforts all the directresses put in to make the school such a fun and wonderful place for playing and learning.”

Christine, mummy of Kai Zhe, Kindergarten 1, Mar '06

 

Donovan has been with DMP for about 2 years.  He enjoys going to school, due to the cosy environment, friendly teachers and fun activities.  He is especially excited about the frequent field trips.  The Art & Craft and Cookery lessons are very interesting too and Donovan is always very proud to show off his "work" to us.  With the school's phonics curriculum, Donovan's reading abilities has improved.  I like the low student-to-teacher ratio, which allows more focused attention on each individual child.  Therefore the teachers know the children very well and recognise each child's unique character and abilities.  Hence, they are able to provide very good feedback about the children's developments through quarterly progress reports and open parent-teacher dialogue.  It is good that the year-end concert encourage participation from all children, as with some bigger schools, only the graduating class gets to participate.  My son has learnt a lot since he came to DMP and more importantly, he had fun and is happy, which is all childhood should be about.  The principal and teachers believe very strongly in the Montessori methodology of early childhood education and they have certainly done a good job in delivering it.

Angeline, mummy of Donovan, Kindergarten 1, Nov '05

 

“Phoebe has been very happy in school. She looks forward to go to school. Thanks to the teachers who have been encouraging and kind to her. The teachers’ acceptance and patience have made Phoebe comfortable and in place. It is a very safe and happy environment for my child. Coming from a Chinese speaking background, Phoebe displays interest and confidence in learning and speaking English. The school has provided her with a good English speaking environment too. Phoebe uses English when she plays with her dolls instead of Chinese. A bit sad for me but it is good to see my girl handling both languages well. Other than academic, the teachers, especially Ms Wendy has been very kind and motivating. She has been encouraging Phoebe in building herself up. She has shown her love for Phoebe at all times. e.g., the transition period of settling down in a new learning environment, the developing from being self-centred to showing care to others, the learning of being independent in school or at home and many more. ”

Marina, mummy of Phoebe, Nursery, Nov '05

 

“I like everything about the school because the teachers have done a great job for Sarah. And the frequent field trips are very beneficial to the curriculum.”

Chelsea, mummy of Sarah, Pre-Nursery, Nov '05

 

“My daughter Sasha learns so much and so fast in school. She speaks English and Mandarin with good diction. My friends say all the time that she speaks so well and clear. They say she speaks like a seven-year-old and not a five-year-old. Most important thing about the school is that my daughter loves it. It has the right environment for a growing child.”

Sher, daddy of Sasha, Kindergarten 1, Nov '05

  

“Eugene has been with dMP since July 2004. Since then, we have seen a lot of progress in him. He has shown improvement in his fine motor skills and to our surprise, he loves Chinese and is able to recite the exact word and sentence which He Lao Shi taught in class. He is able to recognize many Chinese characters too and choose his own book in the library. The programme has also help to build on his personality development as his is able to coach/guide his younger brother, take responsibility & be independent. We believe the programme will continue to improve his weaknesses and strengthen his abilities. We wish to express our sincere thanks to all the teachers especially Uncle Jake and Ms Wendy. They have been very helpful, passionate about early childhood education and are also open for suggestion to improve the programme.”

Hock Choon, daddy of Eugene, Nursery, Nov '05

 

“The methodology is excellent, gives children the room for creative play and learning and discovering themselves and their talents. The teachers, principal are caring, responsible and understand both the children and parents well. The reports enable working parents to understand the child’s progress and be informed with any situation.”
