DO NOT send your kids to Starkids Nursery Playschool

I feel rejoice that I did not continue sending Adrian to Starkids Nursery Playschool few months back but at the same time feel sorry to a friend of mine when I saw her status in FB this morning. Her 11-month old daughter is suffering from food poisoning after one month care under Starkids Nursery Playschool. They fed her daughter rice porridge (not fine enough for a baby) & cube carrot (too big for a baby), eventually her daughter vomited from 6pm 'till the next morning.

These are the residue vomited by the poor little girl.

They even found some green stuffs in it, nursery insisted those are vegetables but in fact the parents found out it's actually color paper kind of thing. This is absolutely intolerable!

Their first impression to me wasn't pleasant at all. I went & picked up Adrian everyday to find him very dirty with awful smell on his body. I started to hesitate whether to continue the day-care service with them or not.

The owner of the nursery (Mr. Chan) has very bad attitude problems, a terrible gentlemen I would say. I remember myself sending Adrian to the nursery every morning (for one week), their gate were widely opened, I was being told by the owner that they normally keep the gate open during that time for every parent's convenient to drop off their children. After one week of observation, I realized it was just an excuse for them, in fact they've never closed nor locked the gate. I found the gate was widely opened even at odd time like 2 to 3 o'clock in the afternoon. When hubby confronted them, the owner told hubby that the place is very safe, his car was in good condition parking at the garage even the gate was not locked, not to mention the kids. We could not accept such a ridiculous explanation, how could he compare his car with our son? My immediate decision was to withdraw Adrian from their care. The owner got very mad at our withdrawn, he even fought with hubby when we tried to explain things to him politely.

I believe many parents have had bad experience with them, I don't get it why they still get their license to operate a nursery / child care. They're definitely not qualified!

Nursery Address:

Hi Alan, I'm sending my son to Taska Ashee at Fortuna Park. They are not the best but I'd rate them 100 times better than Starkids. My son enjoys there & learnt a lot from them.

Further, if your child is more than 2 years old. You can consider sending him/her to Angel Playschool at Taman Selesa. I have yet to see the place, but got lots of good recommendation from other experienced parents. Anyway, I'm seeing them tomorrow to get more info, if everything is fine, I'll register my son for next year's intake! =)

Hi, you are right. Both Starkids branch run by the same boss, DO NOT send your baby there. If you are staying near QE, I'd recommend you to send your baby to Taska Ashee at Taman Fortuna, where I send my son there. You may contact the principal Vin at 016-8473836.

Hi!

I heard taska Glory very good, at Damai Glory Church. However I'm not familiar with Inanam & Likas areas.

Zac, are you a frequent FB user? If yes, I'd recommend you to join a few parenting group in FB namely "KK Mommies" & KK 育儿坊 (KK Parenting"). Very useful, mommies from all over KK discurss ideas & bring out opinions there. If you have any question, anytime welcome to post a question, you will sure get the answer that you want.

My suggestion is better the all nursery provide cctv that can connect to handphone online so that the parents can see their son and also can monitor how the nursery staff take care of their son.this is important.hope all parents will support this suggestion.thank you..

Hi there, i sent my son to Angel Playschool, Taman Selesa since he was 2yrs old. They used montessori method. Highly recommended. From safety to education standard, i would rate 10/10. They limit around 15 student per class for each age of class. Another option of Taska is Bright Beginning but the queue for waiting list is sooo panjang.
