"Miss Kate and Miss Nadine did a wonderful job facilitating our daughter's adjustment to pre-school. It really helped that she is familiar with Miss Kate and the setting of the school from the BCT playgroups.

I love the interaction between the teachers and the preschoolers. I like how the morning is organised, enabling preschoolers to be engaged in a variety of activities while enjoying the learning process at the same time. I would like to highlight that I am particularly delighted with the shopping activity whereby kids are given a coin each to buy apples based on the numbers on the cards shown by the teacher. I believe in introducing money to young children as early as possible to help them develop a healthy relationship with money."   Riehen pre-school mom, Nov 2021

"Our daughter had a wonderful time at the pre-school kitchen theme week, and I noticed her new skills at home when she wanted to help make dinner. We are really impressed with the pre-school. Our daughter is always happy to talk about her day and sing some songs to us. She is also becoming very helpful around the house!


Thanks so much for creating such interesting theme weeks! Our daughter enjoyed the excitement of a new activity, and she was very proud to share the treats she made with her big sister!"   Riehen pre-school mom, 2020

"Ahead with English, along with all his teachers of the past five years have really supported, encouraged and given our son the foundation of the English language. You all have been instrumental in developing his interest in varied subjects that have not been part of his public schooling curriculum.


I would also like to thank you and his teachers for inculcating in him the habit of reading.

We are, and would be ever indebted and grateful for the contribution the teachers and you have made towards growing his knowledge in his most formative years."
