like last 4 weeks i got a phone call from Adni. I was happy and anxious at the same time. at that time, Iman was still in IOP tumble tots. So anyway, since he's been in the waiting list for some times already and did decline once the offer (because at that time i've just paid for IOP-ins. of play), so i think he'll just go for it this time.
so i never really had an entry about IOP pon, but i'm just gonna compare these two schools in this entry. so Iman started his first day in adni on 10 june. he was happy when we left not kowing he's being left there. the second day, he cried :( poor my baby!! for the very first week, he only went for two days; the next 3 days he was not very well, huhuhu. the week after my family went to Perth. this week he only went today, friday. today he cried.
well actually the drama is not really my main concern. he's like that in IOP the firsts weeks too. what i worried most is that he's not drinking/ eating at all. and i leave him there from 8am to 3pm. that is long hour. he's like that in IOP too, but he's only there from 9.30-12.30am. at least he dranks his ribena there from day 1.
in adni they will bath the kids. and the sleeping hours is from 12pm to 3pm. when i picked him up today he's awake. it kinda broke my heart to see my starving child couldnt sleep because he's hungry. i wonder why he does not even take his ribena. when he saw me later at 3 pm, he drank his ribena that puzzled the teachers , aikkk..
i hope this eating problem ends the soonest.and please like the school, iman!
kesian sangatlah anak mama nanti kurus!
a little on IOP, just few weeks before his second term ended, i told the school teacher about Iman's speech delay thru the communication book, just so they know. then i saw iman being placed in Junior classes on facebook. He's supposed in Nursery 1 (N1). junior is a step behind N1. i was quite pissed off because i don't know, i thought, was my child really is not 'there' yet? initially the reason i was told was that, junior class has too little students so they place Iman there, but why Iman, why not other kids? i was sad sad. junior and N1 are the same except junior they dont have workbook kot. but Iman has a workbook.
little that i know they placed Iman there to attend him more. he's just placed in the junior area. he's improving a lot alhamdulillah. even he does not make sentences, his vocab increases. and of course there's other initiatives made to help iman. alhamdulillah.
IOP is great place for your child, but is a bit pricey.
Adni is still new to Iman and me. cannot comment too much now.
hope school/task-searching parents out there benefit a little on both of these schools.
