Dear Ms Sandy
Thank for organising this sports day event together with other NutureStar centres, to give us parents the opportunity to engage in healthy activities with our children.
I particularly enjoyed the segment on Jacpa, where the K2 students displayed great teamwork and coordination, forming interesting human-structures such as sushi and fireworks.
Overall, a well-organised event!
I look forward to participate with great enthusiasm for Sports Day next year.

Being educators ourselves, my husband and I understand the challenges a teacher faces in the classroom. This is especially true when the class comprises toddlers who have limited language skills. The teacher needs to have a lot of patience and passion, as well as commitment to his/her job. Fortunately for our children, Rayan Lim (PN1) and Natasha Lim (PN2), they have such good form and co-form teachers.
Professionalism, Patience & Passion
2 Ms Su Yanhong, Mdm Loh King Choo (of PN1), Mdm Samantha Xu and Mdm Li Xue (of PN2) possess the 3 ‘P’s; professionalism, patience and passion. They have demonstrated their duty of care and concern for children under their charge. The teachers have kept us informed of our children’s all-round development. Knowing how active Rayan and Natasha can be, we believe that the teachers’ patience and staying true to their passion and the mission of the centre have allowed them to bring out the best in Rayan and Natasha.
Forthcoming In Providing Feedback
3 We believe that effective teachers provide consistent feedback, and not only during the scheduled parent-teacher meetings. The form and co-form teachers of PN1 and PN2 were able to do this which greatly helped us to provide reinforcement on the good practices and habits our children has picked up and ‘rehabilitation’ on the undesired ones. This has allowed us to better tailor our method of disciplining and educating them at home.
Positive Impact & Influence On Our Children
5 The form and co-form teachers of PN1 and PN2 possess the 2 ‘I’s; impact and influence. Henry Brooks Adams once wrote:
“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell, where his influence stops”. At home, our children would share with us daily on what they have learnt from their teachers in school and how they have enjoyed the teacher-led activities.
6 We would like to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Ms Su Yanhong, Mdm Loh King Choo, Mdm Samantha Xu and Mdm Li Xue for being present and be engaged in our children’s all-round development. We feel privileged that NurtureStars has such committed teachers as part of its caring teaching staff. - Mdm Cheryl Lim (Mother of Rayan Lim, PN1 and Natasha Lim, PN2)
Hi Joyce, I attended the fathers' day breakfast and really enjoyed the session at the centre. I got to bond with my son and also see the environment that he is in. More importantly, it was an insightful time for me to get to know the plans that you have for the centre. Both my wife and I feel that the centre seems to be more systematic now than before. We feel that You also brought a lot of new ideas which will enrich the learning experience for the kids at the centre. We both are grateful for the passion you have for improving the curriculum and the level of experience you have in running the centre. The interactions we have with you made us believe that we have chosen the most suitable centre for Shiheng to learn and grow. We also want to make special mention of Shiheng's teacher, ???. During our various interactions with her since Shiheng enrolled 6 months ago, we have been very impressed by her sense of responsibilities and her attention paid to the students. She demonstrate a genuine and keen interest to educate the kids and have a deep sense of care and affections for them as well. She is able to share her knowledge of Shiheng with us which allow us to understand how we can mould him better. Her accurate feedback to us also enabled us to know how he is developing in school. We both feel very blessed to have someone as dedicated as her to teach Shiheng
