Daycare/pre-school in Songshan area

Postby Harold » 14 Oct 2006, 13:13

Harold's wife posting:
I work around Minsheng and Fuxing and we are going to move downtown (or at least closer to my office around New Year) so I am looking for a daycare for my daughter who will then be 19-20 months old (right now she has a Taiwanese babysitter who speaks Chinese to her).
We are moving mainly because I am tired of commuting (from Yangming Shan) and wasting so much time in public transportation while I could spend time with her. So I don't really want to have to run to the other side of town to go pick her up.

We would like to find a shool with the following specifications:

Area: Songshan (Minsheng E. R. Sec. 3, Fuxing N. Rd, Dunhua N. Rd)
Language: Chinese exclusively (or very little English)
Public prefered but private also ok
Daycare must accept children under 2
A lot of physical activities, arts and crafts and a lot of playing (no structured classes, no homework :eek: )
Loving teachers and staff
Healthy food (I don't think you can actually find this in Taiwanese schools...)
Reasonable tuition

Would appreciate any advise.

Beya

Beya, I've ben meaning to tell you I was around Minsheng E. Rd Section 5 last week and saw a small school that accept babies from 0-3 years only. Are you interested in that area? If so I'll go find the number for you, I wrote it down somewhere... :oops:

Yes that would be great! Thanks A.
Instead of a trap door, what about a trap window? The guy looks out it, and if he leans too far, he falls out. Wait. I guess that's like a regular window. (Courtesy of Jack Handy)

I might be talking about the same school, they just moved from Da'an Park to a large open school near Fuxing and Minquan. The teach to student ratio is about 1:4, both of my kids attended this school, the teachers are Montessori trained.
Call Ivy Chuang 0935 518 875.
