Our Children and Families

 

 

Lyndel, G4

We continue to choose Child’s SPACE as our partner for Lyndel’s education because we feel he is in a nurturing environment where he can grow academically, emotionally and spiritually. We appreciate the school’s efforts in reminding each student how relating to each other is just as important as learning the lessons. One thing that also made me decide in sending Lyndel here for Grade school was when I saw first hand how the upper grades conducted themselves during Lyndel’s 100 days of Kinder. Lyndel had a super fun Lego setup and they were so eager to experience it. But since Lyndel was not on his desk that time, they waited for him without touching his setup. That’s when I truly saw how the school molds the kids – that every action should be found with respect and care.

I also appreciate that the school decided, early on, to integrate STEM in their curriculum. It shows that the school recognizes the need to be future forward but at the same time, still grounded on the basic principles in shaping the kids. 

Rigel, G2 

  1. Proper inclusion implementation – modification and accommodation are done well such that Rigel really feels included and not left out in any activity, be it academic or not; when she feels confident, we feel that we are maximizing her potentials for learning.
  2. Appropriate student:teacher ratio – teachers can give enough attention to each student thus they have the bandwidth to really know and understand their students; it makes them better teachers because they can reach out and communicate with their kids in a manner acceptable to them
  3. Values Formation is aligned with our family’s values – to us this is the most important

Liam, G1

– Their holistic approach of teaching kids specially those with special needs. 

– Fun and friendly environment for kids, parents and teachers

Ocean, G1

  1. There is personal approach to each individual student.  Teachers know their students well, (their interests, strengths and weaknesses), enabling them to help each child develop.
  2. Christian values and love for others is taught and most importantly, practiced and applied.
  3. Family involvement

Pablo, G7

– the school provides education that nurtures and develops not just the brain of the kids but their hearts as well

 

– the teachers and school staff care for the kids’ overall well-being, not just their grades but more importantly their character, their health, their relationships

 

– our family has seen how this kind of nurturing environment in school has mattered significantly in Pablo’s transition from a boy with frustration issues and who hated school and school work to a responsible young lad who shows empathy for family and friends, who has learned to be comfortable with his funny personality and weird interests, who has built strong friendships, who loves school even on days when he has to deal with a lot Filipino (the language!)

Skyler, G7

  1. We feel the school’s sincerity in helping us parents raise good and God-fearing children.
  2. A progressive school with a well-balanced curriculum, that won’t burn out children so much.

Lexi, Pre-Kinder

  1. Christ-centered community with progressive type of education;
  2. The teachers and non-teaching personnel genuinely care for the students;
  3. Relatively cheaper tuition fees than other Catholic schools with progressive type of education;
  4. Generally all concerns and issues are immediately being addressed with the involvement of the students, and the students’ families.

Gavy, Pre-K

  1. Teacher or assistant to student ratio.
  2. Progressive Learning and Christ-centered community.

Nigel, G3

Child’s SPACE is a second home to my son. He is very comfortable with everybody even with the school helpers. I love how he enjoys going to school everyday and he doesn’t like being absent even if he’s sick.

Having a small class size is a plus because “smaller class” means kids will learn equally and will be given equal attention. 

I love that Child’s SPACE doesn’t only teach inside the classroom. My son is also learning outside the campus by being exposed to so much fun activities from various field trips, visiting historical places and community activities which he enjoys all the time. I love how Child’s SPACE helped me mold my son to be a great kid, God fearing and very kind kid. 

We thank God for leading us to Child’s Space! “Christ Centered, Quality of Teachers, Progressive” – these are our three non-negotiable requirements in finding the right school for our children.  Child’s Space met them all and even exceeded our expectations.

Christ-Centered Mission and Vision – A rare find in a pre-school!
Child’s Space mission is to provide a Christ-Centered environment for its students.  Quoting a fellow parent “while it is no longer common to find a pre-school that includes Jesus in their curriculum, Child’s Space has a special subject called Jesus Discovery!”  And we feel very blessed knowing that our children’s school is our partner in teaching our children how much they are loved by a Great God!

Child’s Space Christ-Centered mission and vision also gives us the peace of mind that our children are growing in a safe and loving environment.  The values the school embraces is very much aligned with our personal beliefs.

Whenever our children tell us their great stories about their typical day in school, we are always affirmed that God has placed them at the right place.

Quality of Teachers – Very creative and passionate!
We commend the quality of teachers in Child’s Space! Aside from their very good academic backgrounds (many of them having Masters Degrees or are  currently taking one), we have personally witnessed their creativity and passion in making learning enjoyable for their little students. We are amazed on how they conceptualize and implement special activities for the school. We honor you Teachers!  Job well done! We pray that God will continue to bless all of you. J

Progressive Learning Approach – Learning in Child’s Space is Fun!
We really liked the progressive learning approach that Child’s Space offers. Our children are always excited to go to school because Child’s Space makes learning very fun!

Just to share, our eldest is starting to read at 4 years old and already knows the concept of days and dates! Our other child, in just one year, from being very shy has significantly developed her confidence with the help of the school and her very good teachers. 🙂

Very Affordable (a Big Bonus!) – Child’s Space is the most affordable progressive pre-school in the Metro!
1 is to 7 Teacher to Student ratio. Progressive. Very Good Quality of Teachers. Christ-Centered program. With all these offers, it is surprising to know that the tuition fee is 40%-60% more affordable than most progressive type school around the area.

We honor the school founders for their generosity in offering such quality education at an affordable price.

We are really blessed to have found Child’s Space. God willing, we look forward to spending more years with this school. We do pray for exponential growth in all areas of your plans – for the school, for your teachers and your students!

God bless,
Daddy RJ and Mommy Jo Serra

We were never a believer of sending kids to school at an early age until we came across Child Space!

Kayel was once a very shy girl and would literally ignore strangers and even cry at times. At first, from a fathers perspective, I was fond of saying ok keep that until your 30! (mostly due to my fears) but Child’s Space showed us how important social involvement is to a child’s development and helped us nurture our daughter to become a very confident and smart little girl that is making her way to a big school with very impressive comments from the teachers who evaluated her; prompting the questions, where does she go to school?

It has always brought us joy every time we pick up Kayel from school as she has always something to share to us and does it in a very enthusiastic manner! (Oh my goodness it’s a turtle!)

Kayel’s social skill is really polished by Child Space to the point that we have to stop her from talking to our friends, which she would eagerly share her jokes with. We are really amazed by how involved and nature conscious she is! She consistently reminds us to turn off the lights to save energy and not to let the water run.

Her “can do” attitude and analytical skills are becoming very evident which most of the time puts us in awe on how she figure things out and know what goes where… from driving to Frank Sinatra.

All the developments we have seen in Kayel made us say we made the right choice with Child’s Space; dedication coupled with personal touch by the (beautiful) teachers gave us peace of mind and was one of the deciding factors of choosing Child’s Space!     -Mommy Red and Daddy Archie Espina
