TESTIMONIALS

BECKY & FRANK

Mum & Dad of Aidan

Reflecting back, when we first went searching for a good preschool for Aidan, we had many considerations: the quality of the teachers, a well balanced curriculum, conducive environment and, most importantly, a school which teaches our son the right virtues and character foundation that will last a lifetime.

At Cherrybrook, as the teacher-to-child ratio is relatively low, the teachers were able to provide individual attention and LOVE so as to provide an age/stage appropriate challenging and yet nurturing rich environment with a variety of experiences enabling the child to grow physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.

The good testament of a good school is best exhibited by how a child is being transformed. From young, Aidan has a bit of an assertive and competitive spirit within. Through the 4 years in Cherrybrook, we see how Aidan have been edified and these traits brought to balance where he embraces the virtues such as humility, excellence and fortitude.

Pleasantly surprised, we also noted Aidan’s smooth transition into Primary One: not only has he adjusted well to a completely new social environment, a higher emphasis on academics excellence, expectation to be a more independent learner, he has continued to embrace and practice the virtues he learned in Cherrybrook whenever he faces any challenges in the new school. Thanks to the passion and commitment of the teachers, we are confident that the experience and formation developed at Cherrybrook will continued to serve Aidan in good stead in the future.

Cherrybrook has transformed us as parents. Our family entered many years ago, and have had a child in the school continuously since then. We often receive compliments on our children's behaviour - particularly when we are not with them - and we believe this is certainly largely the result of the courses, talks and workshops offered by the school which have taught us how to be better parents.

Over the last two years, we have seen how Cherrybrook’s holistic approach has helped shape our son to be more confident and independent. On the academic front, the curriculum constantly feeds his curiosity about the world, and we love how he tells us excitedly about what he learns in school every day.

 

The passion and commitment the teachers put in to ensure that every situation, good or bad, can be turned into a learning opportunity is what sets Cherrybrook apart from others. It is readily apparent how much the teachers care about the learning and well-being of the children. We are glad to be part of the Cherrybrook family.

We’ve had both a girl and boy at Cherrybrook. Because of work overseas, our kids have seen a few top branded schools.  There are other schools with fancier or bigger facilities than Cherrybrook.  But at Cherrybrook, the teachers’ level of attention, care, communication and professionalism is second to none. Our girl made important progress in key subjects like English and Chinese to prepare for SCGS.

 

She’s now at her bigger school but misses Cherrybrook, as does our boy.  I find the focus on values, what it means to be a good person to your neighbour, to build strength from within, to be curious - these values the Cherrybrook community took care in imparting, and remains with them years after, even today.

All 7 of my children went through Cherrybrook Kindergarten. 

I like that Cherrybrook was modelled after schools around the world, some of which were founded decades ago, which have the philosophy and educational principles that we cherish.

 

My husband and I felt assured that at the same time that our children were receiving a quality education to prepare them for P1, the school supports us parents in teaching them the virtues. For whatever reason, we parents may emphasise particular virtues and forget to teach others. For instance, we may highlight soft virtues such as kindness but forget to stress the tougher ones such as assertiveness; or vice versa. That there is a system for educating them for character ensures that in the future, we don’t have the regret of overlooking aspects of their early development, thus compromising their becoming the persons we aspire for them to be. 

Having a ‘tutor’ to oversee our family whom we can go to for our clarifications is very reassuring. The school is professionally run, with sound reasons to support everything they do. The staff are carefully selected such that there is optimum congruence with the school philosophy. We sense a deep unity among the teachers and staff; they receive ongoing professional and personal formation to be role models to the children, and it shows.

 

Formation is provided for parents as well, to equip us in our role. These come in the form of well-researched talks or courses by professionals and persons trained in the topics spoken about.

I don't know of any other preschool that includes all these aspects of early childhood education, and with such seriousness.

Mum & Dad of Benedict & John Paul

Being Cherrybrook parents for six years has helped both our sons and ourselves. Their focus on character formation, virtues, holistic education and active participation of parents, has undoubtedly been an enriching experience. For our sons, Cherrybrook has been a second-home, where they found genuine love, nurturing and the freedom to express themselves fully. Seeing them develop as wholesome individuals over the years, we are confident that the experience and formation at Cherrybrook, will serve them in good stead in future.

We believe the main appeal of Cherrybrook that sets it apart from other pre schools, is its strong emphasis on character formation. This is not something that is merely preached or touted as a selling point but instilled upon and put into practice on a daily basis by the entire school community. 

 

Cherrybrook stands out as a centre of excellence for the early years because it truly believes in the value of a holistic education and adheres firmly to its long term vision of partnering parents in moulding their children into mature, responsible and well adjusted adults of the future.
