EK – Evangel Kindergarten

Asher will only attend Apple Tree Playgroup for this year as the teacher told me from next year onwards, if I still want Asher to continue with AP, I have to send him to CCK. I don’t drive and I don’t think I can send him to school daily. That’s insane, from my place to CCK?!

So in March, I started looking for another kindy for Asher. There are only a handful of “better” Church Kindy around our estate and only 1 that is closer to our house. Yes, I prefer walking distance. Okay, I don’t really know how good is this kiddy but I know the number of applicants exceeds the available vacancies for all levels and they hold balloting session yearly. I was thinking, this was my only choice (at this moment) so I would just give it a try since the registration date was early March. They probably know the applications were going to be overwhelming hence they only open for registration for 5 days. I went on the 3rd day and when I was told the balloting date was 31st march, I informed them that we would be in Shanghai, one lady was telling me I had to give up my seat if I was absent on the balloting day, another lady was helpful enough to hand me all the documents to sign and told me I could get a family member to come on my behalf.

How lucky we are, on 31st March, I received a message from my sister that Asher got a place for next year Pre-Nursery class. 😀

Evangelical Free Church, it was demolished and rebuilt last year, started fuctioning since early this year. The premises are very clean, new and bright.

The kindergarten is located at Level 2

Walk out from the lift and these are the classes. Like the idea of having the gate to prevent children leaving the class/area without permission.

I like the school and the environment, I hope Asher enjoys his new school and makes new friends in EK.
