What Parents Say

Sofia was born in Singapore and started at Sunflower Baby House & Preschool when she was 18 months old. We’d been looking for a fun place with friendly teachers where she could develop as an independent and responsive child.

Indeed, she is very happy in this cheerful environment filled with colorful toys and equipment. She loves her teachers, her little friends and the huge variety of activities offered. When I pick her up she’s always so happy, regardless of how tired she may be.

The teachers are experienced carers, and not only have the necessary patience and knowledge, but are there to offer the parents advice, support and understanding. They always take the time to tell me all about Sofia’s day.

At home, she dances and sings and proudly counts to ten in Mandarin. I think it’s wonderful for her to be exposed to the Mandarin language daily. Sunflower represents a good mixture of local and international cultures, and we love that Sofia is exposed to all these different influences.

Sunflower Baby House & Preschool has a great atmosphere of openness and commitment, and I am very grateful to Angela and her wonderful team for taking such good care of our youngest daughter

When my daughter was 4 months old I returned to part time work and confidently left her in the care of Angela and the team at Sunflower Baby House & Preschool. Over the past 15 months I have been impressed with Sunflower Baby House & Preschool's commitment to providing high quality child care, their fun approach to learning and wonderful teachers. Lily loves her teachers, her little friends and the huge variety of activities that are offered. I enjoy hearing about Lily's day from her teachers when I collect her, and this also helps ensure a smooth transition back to her routine at home. I would highly recommend Sunflower Baby House & Preschool to anyone considering childcare in Singapore.

The search for an infant care to send Sathya to was a tedious one, but once we visited Sunflower Baby House & Preschool, the choice was clear. The care & warmth of the staff, the vibrancy of the environment, the cleanliness of the school pointed to Sunflower as a clear choice. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the center offers a comprehensive and educational program to stimulate minds of our little one. From water play to social interaction time with the other kids, Sathya has made friends even at his tender age of One!

We are now looking forward to the day we can send him to toddlers’ play group and we are definitely waiting to hear from him how fun the playgroup has been for him!

Ciaran joined Sunflower Baby House & Preschool at 6 months old. When choosing a nursery for my son I knew that I wanted somewhere where he would be well cared for, learn through play and be happy. Sunflower Baby House & Preschool met these needs right from the start and have continued to do so in a friendly and fun environment.

Ciaran enjoys playing with the other toddlers and his time there is full of activities, educational and physical play and social interaction. The teachers at Sunflower Baby House & Preschool are experienced carers and have the patience and knowledge to not only provide for the children but are always there to offer advice, support and understanding to new mums. Ciaran is now 19 months old and has progressed from the Infant to Toddler section. Unfortunately we have to leave Singapore and Sunflower Babyhouse soon as we are re-locating back to the United Kingdom. I know that Ciaran will miss his teachers and friends but am pleased that his first year at nursery was a happy one.

Thank you Sunflower Baby House & Preschool.

Sam loves Sunflower Baby House & Preschool - and if Sam is happy, we are happy! When we drop off Sam in the morning, we always leave watching him having a big hello cuddle from one of his teachers – it is wonderful to see him being doted on.

We feel very lucky to have such kind and gentle people looking after our precious little boy – and we’d like to say a very big thank you to everyone at Sunflower Baby House & Preschool for taking such good care of little Sam.

Sunflower Baby House & Preschool was clearly our choice when we were scouting for an infant care centre for Sue-Ann. The comfortable environment with its caring team is one that we could immediately recognise when we first visited the centre.

We were initially reluctant to send her to school, at a tender age - only 7months! The assurance and dedication that we get from the experienced teachers sets our minds at ease, especially to us parents when at work. Sue-ann now comes home everyday a happy child. Independent, responsive, sociable, affectionate, curious – the elements of positive developments in her.

Finding a good infant care centre really makes a difference. We are glad we made the right choice! We know that Sue-ann is trusted in good hands. Our sincere gratitude to the caring team at Sunflower Baby House & Preschool.

- Thomas & Susan, Parents of Sue-Ann (16 months old)

Our daughter has truly bloomed at Sunflower Baby House & Preschool. Thanks to the very attentive staff and the fun and safe environment they have created at the centre. When we first saw the place, we were drawn to the cheerful set up – the burst of rainbow colours, fun toys and equipment for kids to play and exercise, as well as Angela’s caring and friendly personality. Her attention to detail – ensuring the kids have healthy meals each day and taking the time to talk to parents has been very reassuring for us as parents. We are very grateful to the teachers and staff for the wonderful introduction to learning and socialising they are providing our daughter. Thanks Sunflower Baby House & Preschool team!

My husband and I put my son Shin Ler with Sunflower Baby House & Preschool when he was 10 months old due to some childcare problem at home. Even though we had to make the adjustment within a month, we managed to scout around before deciding on Sunflower Baby House & Preschool.

We chose Sunflower Baby House & Preschool over some of the other infant care centres we have visited for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, we like the personal touch of Ms Angela Ng, who is very involved in the operations and running of the two centres. Here, each infant and toddler is known by name without any name tag printed on their uniform. Secondly, Angela kept a strict intake ratio which allows maximum supervision of all the infants and toddlers. Although the two units at Watten Estate may not be as big as some of the other centres, you can know at one glance where and what the infants and toddlers are doing. Thirdly, we are also very impressed with the stringent hygiene Angela and her team uphold. Our son managed to steer clear of HFMD despite the outbreaks at other centres and one or two isolated cases at Sunflower Baby House. Above all else, Sunflower has also carefully selected and incorporated many enrichment programs tailored to suit the needs of the infants and toddlers.

Indeed, we have witnessed how Shin Ler has really grown and progressed with his friends at Sunflower. It is such a joy to see him feeding himself, keeping his toys, playing with his friends and interacting with his teachers at the centre. At home, he would also share, show and even sing to us what he has learnt at Sunflower. Both I and my husband would really like to thank Angela and her team who have made Sunflower more like a second home to Shin Ler. We know that should the day come for us to say goodbye to Sunflower Baby House & Preschool, it will not only be an adjustment for Shin Ler but also for us. We will always look with fond memories of our time spent at Sunflower Baby House & Preschool.

For this coming June, as Sunflower shift out of Watten Estate and expand into Turf City, we look forward to an even more exciting time of growing and learning for Shin Ler!

- Mr Chan & Jo, Parents of Shin Ler (2 years & 4 months old)
