There are two things that I consider before sending my child to a school. The first one is the method of teaching. It has to be aligned with my objective of teaching my child through play (since she’s still young) and teaching her using actual things that she will experience in her daily life. The second one is if it takes into consideration the flexibility that a school should have, and adjust to what a child needs. Every child is different, so you can’t really treat all of them the same way.
Oh, I have one more thing that I consider and that’s proximity.
For those who are in Makati, I will highly recommend this school that we visited. It’s a preschool in Makati. It’s called Carsoncrest International School, a franchisee of Clarenter Education, U.S. and is authorized to offer the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC). At the moment, they are offering the following programs:
- International Toddler (2 years old) Program
- International Nursery (3 years old) Program
- International Prekinder (4 years old) Program
- International Kinder (5 years old) Program – Starts next year (2019) This is that start establishing the K-to-12 department

What is IPC or the International Preschool Curriculum?
The International Preschool Curriculum embodies the best in academic research and practices. It is aligned to meet or exceed the standards of all major education systems making it the most internationally accepted early childhood education curriculum in the world. From Singapore Math to UK Literacy, the IPC has had to meet some of the most stringent standards to be truly international (for more information visit www.ipc.education).
What I like about the International Preschool Curriculum or IPC is that Carsoncrest International School’s students will be exposed to the following:
- Language Arts
- Motor Skills
- Creative Arts
If you want to check out this school, there will be available summer classes at Carsoncrest International school in cooperation with Manila Workshops. This will be posted in the events page (announcement will be in a few days): http://manilaworkshops.com/events
