寶貝快滿六個月的時候由於工作因素白天沒辦法照顧孩子,經過許多朋友推薦決定把孩子送到the ole schoolhouse。第一天懷著忐忑的心把孩子帶到幼兒園,一進門有親切的老師把孩子接手過去,叫媽咪放心去上班。這裡的老師們充滿熱忱,對孩子很有愛心,才送去幾天寶貝的表情就從一開始的疑惑不安轉變成安心自在。
在這裡有友善的母乳環境,需要工作的哺乳媽咪可以把事先儲存的冰凍母乳帶去幼兒園請老師幫忙餵;每天還提供新鮮現做的食物讓孩子們吃的安心健康;即使是小寶寶也有安排豐富活潑的室內外活動,不論是畫畫,讀故事書,音樂律動或者是在戶外玩沙都讓寶貝玩的很開心。
這裡就像一個大家庭,孩子們互相學習,扶持著成長。如果你在尋找可以安心託付孩子的好學校,走一趟the ole schoolhouse,他們不會讓你失望的。

想了很久,該怎麼下筆來說說這間幼兒園呢?
OLE SCHOOLHOUSE這所幼兒園,周邊的朋友評價都很高,老實說...當時有點半信半疑,因為太多人說好,那到底是好在哪邊阿?? 還要先預約排隊 ?還要等待!...... 讓人實在好奇!! 直到某日的下午,先生提議帶孩子去拜訪幼兒園,順便看看孩子的反應如何?
走進幼兒園時,已經是下午四點多,大部分的孩子都已經回家了,剩下的孩子雖然不多,但是每個孩子的臉上是開心的,甚至看到幾個孩子不願意跟家長回家,已經把幼兒園當作另一個家了,此時回頭再看看自己的孩子時,已經完全不怕生的去尋找遊戲區,而孩子的反應,是最真實的一切,讓我們兩個決定,就算要等..也要送孩子進這所幼兒園。
附帶一提,我們家的寶貝講話有點慢,老師們知道以後,馬上安排課程來輔導孩子語言發展,這是在其他間的幼兒園所看不到的用心!
你真的要親身去感受,這種放心託付的感覺 ,這是文字無法表達出來,真的!

After researching our options for daycare for our son and visiting local centres we found The Ole Schoolhouse. The moment we walked in we knew we had found the loving, caring, clean, nurturing, friendly and safe environment we were searching for. The children are happy and the teachers cannot be faulted. The communication is excellent and the facilities, toys, books, resources, house-made food, play areas, ever changing decorations, and celebration days are brilliant!

My baby started at the Ole Schoolhouse when she was three months old and now she's going to be 1 very soon. Her teachers are like her masis (aunties) who love her immensely. There is genuine love, care and affection and you can see it on the happy and joyful faces of the children here. I can feel that my baby is calm and contended and always busy exploring the wide range of resources in the environment. I can very confidently say that it is like a second home for my baby girl.
