As we are indoors with air-conditioning, your children will be safe from the worsening haze.

We will allow for extra playground time to give everyone the chance to let off some steam :-)

The Haze

Posted by: Thinking Box Staff on: September 15, 2015

Dear Parents,

As the current haze situation is likely to continue for at least the next week or so, please try to take extra precautions to minimize your child’s exposure to the outside air as much as possible to prevent them from being too uncomfortable. You may want to use the health and hygiene room to wipe over your child’s face and eyes if it makes them feel more refreshed :-)
Our environment is air-conditioned and we regularly have air cleaners in the rooms after the children have left for the day during our daily sanitization process. The indoor playground means that the children will not miss out on their regular playtime in class and we will be extending their playtime for 15 minutes each day until the situation improves to allow more time for movement and exercise given that being outdoors is not recommended at this time.
Have a good evening :-)

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to Term 3! We hope everyone had some time to relax and recharge during the mid-year break . It was wonderful to see the smiling faces of both parents and children as we start the new term. The children have all come back to school appearing more grown up and mature. It is lovely to see them reunite with their friends and settle back into the preschool routine. We are definitely looking forward to the new term ahead as it is going to be filled with more fun activities for your dear ones!
