Orientation at Tadika Juara Cerdik

Hubby and I attended the Parents’ Orientation at Tadika Juara Cerdik yesterday. The program serves to inform parents of children who are newly enrolled into the kindy on its mission, objectives and values of the kindy, as well as its parent organization, the Damansara Utama Methodist Church. Parents were also informed of the school’s rules, and other practical matters such as traffic flow into the Dream Centre complex where Tadika Juara Cerdik is located, as well as the procedures for dropping and picking up children before and after school. At the end of the session, we collected the books, name tag and security card. Uniforms won’t be given out until a few weeks later, and the children will be wearing their normal clothes to school in the first few weeks. This is to help teachers identify the children better in the initial stages. Parents are only allowed to be with their children for the first three days, which suits me just fine as I had only taken two days off next week. Anyhow, for the first week, the children will only be in school from 8.30 – 10.30am, to help them ease into kindy life. The hours will revert back to the regular 8.30 – 11.45am from the second week onwards.

This multi-talented blogger mummy was also there and Yiu Yiu will be in the same class as Faythe. I also met another long-time friend from secondary school whose son is also enrolled in the kindy, though he’ll be in a different class. She stays in the same housing area as me but we both didn’t realize that we enrolled our child in the same kindy. What a small world.

In less than nine hours, Yiu Yiu will step into a new milestone in her life and she seems excited enough. She even complied when we asked her to go to bed early, saying that she needs to wake up early tomorrow for her. Lets hope she keeps up her enthusiasm.

Chinnee - yeah, such a coincidence, but Jazz and I stay far apart, so car pooling is out of the question.

Hijackqueen - in her own words, "I cry a bit only la." :-)

Jazz - hehe...only once in a blue moon my posts are not backdated.
