I am also thinking about to enroll my son to ER International School, and have done with a tour. The facilities there are really good: huge class room, new toys and very clean enviroment. I observed their activities for a while today. The whole class is too quiet, and I didn't see any specific activity organized by teachers. Most children play by themsevles.

my son was in a preschool in America, where teachers organize and creat different activities everyday, For example, at "science corner", kids play with magnet on Monday, and will play with microscope on Tuesday. However, in ERIS, kids have almost the same things every day and no exciting games or activities organized. Even for music time, they can only have twice a week. I am wondering my son would get borried if he stays there for whole year.

Anyone knows ERIS better? Thanks for any input!

I also toured ERIS in May and July. I agreed that they are not as 'happening' as other schools. However, I think the preschool was just opened in January this year. They said they are going to have a British teacher this August. There are two ways of looking at the quiet environment for me. My daughter is very active and this maybe a bit challenging but at the same time it might calm her down a little bit. I dont know, it is just what I think. The other thing is Singapore is tropical country, and having an indoor play area may add a positive impact during rainy days. They also get to learn Mandarin. Coming from US like you, I have visited a real Montesorri school and found similarities in terms of the teaching method with ERIS unlike some 'unatuhentic' Montesorri in Singapore. Well, hope this will help.

She seems very happy. I observed the class for a few days and really liked the way adults interacted with kids. It's maybe not the most academically oriented (yet they have math, phonics etc) but they are very caring and truly interested in children. Teachers had good laughs with kids and the atmosphere was very relaxed and loving. They have several outlets, we go to Linden Drive.
