As a family, we couldn't be more thankful to stumble upon finding Fairchild. While other schools would not accept students midway through the school year, Fairchild welcomed us with open arms. It was this open mindedness and flexibility that also reflected well into our child's experience at the school. The teachers and staff are real genuine people - relaxed and down-to-earth. They care about the kids, and allow them the time and space to be themselves while furthering their personal growth and learning experiences. This school really felt like a home away from home (which, out of pure coincidence, operates on the Canadian curriculum and our family originated from Canada originally).
5 years ago we were looking for a playgroup for our first child Justin when he was 2. We found Fairchild was newly established at that time, and we have loved it from the moment we stepped foot inside! The feeling of family and the level of caring that goes into every single child is unmatched! Justin spent two amazing years at Fairchild. He had built confidence and great friendships there. Until now many of his best friends are from Fairchild.
This year, we didn’t doubt and placed our second child Valerie to the PN class. Valerie started without fears and tears. She loves going to school every day. We found the teachers very caring and appreciating. Teachers also keep families updated with newsletters and beautiful pictures detailing all of the learning that was happening in the classroom.
My children had learned so much through play and were glowing with excitement every day at pick up! It warmed my heart to know they were in great hands every single day! I highly recommend Fairchild, look no further, it’s truly a gem!
Mattie has only been at Fairchild Pre-Nursery for 3 months. However, we are amazed by her seemingly accelerated development— she comes home with new words and concepts. Many of these I would not think to hear from a two year old. She has developed expert playdough skills, showed us a pentagon, and has drawn a leaf! What I like the most are the positive affirming words she sprinkles our day with. These are words like amazing and awesome! We actually live in Lohas Park but would not think of another school for Mattie at this critical stage in her development. We love the Fairchild educators for being professional and more importantly, loving and gentle to the children.
When we were looking for a kindergarten for our boy Heikki, we wanted a place that’s warm and fun, and a place that gives kids the confidence and tools to explore. We were lucky to come across Fairchild during our search. Fairchild welcomed our family to its community and exceeded our expectations. Heikki’s teachers have been wonderful to our son and very supportive to us, his parents.
Every day we can feel the love and attention Heikki gets -not only from his teachers- but everyone he comes across at Fairchild. Our boy is happy to go to school and he regularly tells us how much he loves his teachers. Thanks to Fairchild, our son made tremendous progress in Mandarin and English, and further developed his motor and social skills - and all this through play. Hearing Heikki describing the adventures and games he shared with his classmates brightens up our day!
We wish other kids and parent come and join the Fairchild family and let the kids be the best of the themselves.
Fairchild is the best schooling decision we have made for our boys Olive and Almond. The teachers understand their individuality and nurture them with patience and care. During the periods of lockdown due to Covid, the school offered flexible solutions to accommodate our family’s need without disrupting our boys’ learning journey. We cannot express our gratitude enough to the Fairchild team and hope more parents can get to know this hidden gem.
