Here is Mr Heng's Facebook post in full:
How time flies! One year ago, I was at Dazhong Primary School to announce the launch of our first 5 MOE Kindergartens (MKs). A year later, the space has been transformed into a, lively and colourful kindergarten, with lovely works of art by our children and many happy children playing! Yesterday, the 5 MKs held an open house for parents. I met parents whose children are in our MKs -- happy to hear their children are enjoying their learning, and speaking more confidently, including in their mother tongues. Parents who are thinking of registering their children also came to explore. They like the facilities, the way our teachers teach, the resource materials our experts designed, and the different ways we stimulate the curiosity and imagination of the children. I thank parents for your confidence. In 2015, we will set up another 5 MKs in the heartlands. They will be at Frontier Primary, Punggol Green Primary, Sengkang Primary, West Spring Primary, and Blk318A Yishun Ave 9. The number of places we have is limited. Our aim is to pilot new ways of stimulating children in their preschool years to learn -- through 6 domains of learning. We are developing new resource materials, which we will share with all. Parents, if you are keen to find out more, please visit the upcoming road shows on 22nd and 29th March. More details at http://www.moekindergartens.edu.sg/
