Hi to all and especailly those who attend / have experience with Al Worood School DIP ..I
am looking for your feedback on this school as now the year has started,,, and things are getting underway ...I have my children over there ... and frankly I see that the FS classes are a bit more crowded than I expected ,,,one teacher per 23-24 kids with an assitant who is not much of a teaching assistant but more of a school nanny ,,, and they also have a rather rigid very structured Time Table format for these FS classes ... whereas I see at that age especially FS1 should be more about play, enjoyment and LOVING going to school everyday,,,, I dont wnat my child to start hating education because he / she hates going to school ... and I see this happening a lot ...
also coupled with their long hours from 8 to 2 and then the bus commute ,,, I have voiced these concerns to the school managment a lot ... but I dont see that it is getting anywhere ,,, so I am seeking other mums' opinions /experinces on this ,,, as I dont like to feel that I am only paranoid :-) and just another over- concerned parent ....
Frankly though I see that their style of education at the FS stage is a bit daunting for children at that age ... for older classes and primary sections .. I am ok about it ... it is just FS that I am concerned about .... hope to get some feedback and advice .. will be much apprecaited :-)
