I DO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE TEACHING STAFFS ARE GOOD - THAT'S Y I WANTED TO ENROLL MY SON HERE. BUT, I WISH I COULD WAS ABLE TO GIVE -1 STAR. PLEASE TEACH YOUR CENTRE MANAGER ANGER MANAGEMENT. IF THEY DON'T HAVE THIS BASIC DECENCY AND PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITY HOW CAN U TAKE GOOD CARE OF CHILDREN. GOOD THAT GOD STOPPED ME FROM ENROLLING MY KIDS IN WRONG HANDS. THE CENTRE MANAGER AND ADMINISTRATOR BOTH WERE LITERALLY SHOUTING - RAISING VOICE, I JUST ASKED IF THERE IS A MISCOMMUNICATION CALL YOUR HEAD STAFF AND ASK HER BEFORE ME WHAT HAD HAPPENED. THESE SO CALLED MANAGER AND ADMINISTRATOR WERE NOT READY TO DO THIS INSTEAD CALLED ME A LIAR? I AM NOT READY TO LET GO LIKE THIS AS THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO RIGHTS TO INSULT A PARENT THIS WAY. THUS POSTING THIS TO WARN OTHER PARENTS "SAME THING MIGHT HAPPEN TO U. THEY MIGHT DO EVERYTHING WRONG AND TURN THE BLAME ON U AND WOULD DOMINATE U BY SHOUTING AND RAISING THEIR VOICE AS A GROUP AGAINST U AS ONE. I KNOW THE MANAGER AND THE ADMIN WILL SURELY PRETEND TO BE GOOD BY REPLYING TO THIS COMMENT BUT PLEASE THIS REVIEW IS NOT FOR U TO PROVE YOURSELF RIGHT BUT FOR OTHER FELLOW PARENT WHO WISH A PEACEFUL PLACE FOR THEIR KIDS WHILE THEY ARE AT WORK
