    What happens if my child becomes ill or is injured at the centre?

    Parents / caregivers are actively involved in their child’s attendance at SPRING, as such SPRING will not be held liable for any illness or injuries sustained by the child at the centre.

  • 14
    What is the centre’s discipline policy?

    Positive reinforcement is always practiced and encouraged. Our teaching staff adheres to our policy on discipline, giving clear instructions to children, using praise and being empathetic. Children’s learning is maximised if they are in a happy environment. Consistency is important for a child, so we ask parents / caregivers to carry out the same practice as our teachers in behaviour management. There is absolutely no shouting, belittling or rough handling of any child at SPRING.

  • 15
    How involved can parents be at the centre?

    Working closely with our parents / caregivers is essential at SPRING. How a child performs in his / her learning largely depends on how much the parent / caregiver is involved in the programme. It is our will to ensure parents / caregivers are well informed of their child’s progress, fully engaged and participate in the activities and their child’s learning. Cooperative and supportive families are fundamental contributors in a successful learning establishment for children.

    SPRING has an open door policy and hopefully parents / caregivers will feel comfortable to talk with, share or give suggestions and feedback to any of our staff.

    CCTV cameras with a recording system are installed in certain points of the centre to provide visibility of children, ensuring their safety.

    Are parents provided with daily or weekly comments / assessments to keep us informed on how our children are doing?

    Upon enrolment a Parent Handbook is distributed along with a folder. We suggest parents to use that folder to file all learning documents provided in class. Parents / caregivers are encouraged to keep a personal record of their child’s learning achievements, in order to revisit their learning experiences any time.  We also offer parents access to an online platform called KeptMe, allowing our educators and parents to jointly view and contribute to their child’s educational journey in a secure and interactive environment.  Through the KeptMe app, parents can view period updates on their child’s progress and in-class activities, including pictures, commentary and more all in one centralized place.

    May I take photos of my child in class?

    Taking photographs during a class is usually disruptive for both children and teachers, and thus is not permitted. If you want to photograph your child, please make prior arrangements with the centre’s principal. From time to time, there will be professional photographs or short video footage taken of children in the centre for media purposes. Should parents not wish their children to be included in photos or videos, they will need to inform the centre and we will ensure to keep your child’s privacy. We would encourage parents to register and download the KeptMe app, where periodic updates of your child will be uploaded to the platform including pictures of your child taken during class by our staff.
