New School For Our Kids

I’m making my life more organize now by making a to-do list for a week and for a month. And as the first week of May ended, I crossed out one major task— to enroll our two kids to their new school.
We finally settled at Scholastica de San Alfonso in Cainta Rizal after hearing positive feedbacks from some friends and relatives about the school’s reputation. Aside from that, my aunt also works there as one of the school’s accounting staff. Having a relative inside the campus gave us an additional relief so after our ocular inspection of the school, we paid our son’s tuition fee. He was exempted from taking the entrance exams because of his excellent report card and since he can read very well at the age of 5. Books and uniforms are not yet available but my aunt said she will notify me as soon as they are available.
We could have got a 10% off on my son’s tuition fee if we also enrolled my daughter Erin to their Preschool but since this year will be their first time to handle preschoolers, hubby decided that we enroll her to Light Bearer Child Development Center. It is the same school where his brother attended Preparatory last year and where she spent summer classes a year ago.
The reasons why we chose these two different schools for our two kids are as follows:
Scholastica de San Alfonso- Cainta Rizal
• Approximately just 10-15 minutes away from our house
• Air-conditioned rooms
• Handles 10-15 students only in each class
• Fully-covered school grounds
• Tuition fee ranges from 16k-20k only (field trip, retreat/recollection fee included)
• High standard ways of teachings
Light Bearer Child Development Center- Taytay Rizal
• Approximately just 10-15 minutes away from our house
• Air-conditioned rooms
• Handles 5-10 students only in each class
• Has three teachers in charge for each class
• Rest room inside the classroom
• Friendly environment inside the class
• High standard ways of teachings (most of their students learn how to read at the age of 4-5, my son can read both English and Tagalog very well at the age of 5)
• Tuition fee ranges from 16k-20k only (books, uniforms and miscellaneous fees not yet included)
As of now, we enrolled Erin to their Reading Tutorials (Php2500/month for one hour) to harness her reading skills before the school year starts. By the way, my son is an incoming Grade 1 while my daughter will be attending Senior Kinder Level (Preparatory).
In a month’s time it will be another chaotic days of home works, projects, school programs and snack preparations (taking note of buying take-out boxes as I write).
