Brainy Bunch Islamic Montessori & Dilema....


semalam pi open day BBIM dekat Putra Mahkota punya branch...mmg sejak2 nie ada jer survey2 tadika area rumah utk hantar eman...selain tadika2 biasa ada juga smart reader, q-dees, krista....so secara kebetulan BBIM nie baru jer buka and ada buat open day so ajak mydear and dia setuju pegi...bwk eman sekali...dia sukalah sbb ada mcm playground kat sana...

BBIM nie baru lai and derang takder student lai...brg2 ponx tak complete lai and class start early Jan...so dengar penerangan semua cam okeylah...saya mula2 ingat nak amik yg regular class jer...class dari 8.30 pagi smpi 12.30...lepas tu blk lah umah bbysitter...tp mydear tetiba ckp suh amik full day program dari 8.00 pagi smpi 6.30 ptg....sbb bila kira2 balik yuran plus bbysitter sama jer...



mydear fikir biarlah eman dok kat BBIM nie dari pagi smpi petang...tak yah transfer2 g umah bbysitter...sbbnye dia risau anak dia tak pndi nak naik van nnti...hehe yerlah kecik lai kan eman....

yang menjadi dilemanye adalah eman 11hb Nov nie baru nak masuk 3 thn...klu ikut tahun, tahun depan 2013 dia dah umur 4 thn...so dia akan masuk pogram utk 4-6 years punye program...biasalah budak lahir hujung thn lmbt lah sket...masa dia lahir bdk yg lahir bln jan dah berjaln dah kot...huhu dia still lai berdiaper, blum diaper less lai...so risau disitu kami...bila tanya auntie2 kat situ derang ckp takper derang akan toilet train eman...

tp biasalahkan mak ayah mana tak risau....risau boley ker eman pagi2 bgn nak g sekolah...skrg still lai minum susu botol...kang tetiba dlm kelas dia nangis2 nak susu, leceh lah juga...ckp mmg still tak fluent lai, masih ada perkataan hujung yg sesetngh org bley paham...boleh ker dia campur dengan bdk2 lain yg lebay dewasa sket dari dia....

mydear mula2 cam setuju...bila saya ckp nak fikir dulu dia tanya nak fikir apa lai...program nie bgs sbb mydear suka cara pembelajaran dia, pendekatan Islamic dia...sbb kat kwsn rumah kitaorg tak byk tadika cam nie....tp lama2 mydear plak cair hatinya bila tgk eman...it's not about the fees lah, wpun a bit expensive byran bulanan tp sbb dia kesiankan eman, mydear asik ckp kesian lah plak klu nak atr dia g sekolah...haha dah berjangkit sindrom kesian dari saya...tp bila fikir umur mengikut thn mmg dah layak ke sekolah, biar dia belajar sket, biar dia berdikari, biar dia bercampur dengan ramai org....takderlah asik ngan ipad, iphone jer...at least learn something lah kat sekolah...

owh dilemanye...huhu apa pendapat korang as a parents jika situasinye adalah seperti saya...

Bgus sekolah pra tuh kak...tp mmg sungguh dilema bila ckp soal nk htr ank baru umur 3-4 thn sekolah pra...yelah belum putus susu dan diapers mana mak ayah x susah hatikan...but btol ckp sis mimi, berdikari dan bergaul dgn org ramai baru dia pandai bawa diri bila besar...mudah-mudahan amin :)

Mimie, berdasarkan pengalaman akak, elok lah hantar aje..dulu anak akak pon boy juga, gitu lah lahir lambat hujung October 2003..pasal diaper and bottle tu takpe...dulu anak akak siap kena ada nap lagi petang2 and biasa dalam buaian...tapi dia akan jadi biasa sendiri sbb budak2 ni sgt cepat absorb environment sekeliling, evn better than adult kadang2..

Hi Mimie,
Maybe u can enroll Eman under playschool dulu,for age 18mos-3yo.After couples of mos,let say dia dah ok,masuk lah plak primary punye.Boleh tak agak2,sb fees dia sama je kan. Just my 2cents!

asmah : yg others tu utk little scientist tu adalah projek2 sains lah lebay kurang, mcm experiment kata mudahnye...yg tu byr sekali jer utk setahun..

fieda : tulah pslnye delima kan sbb faktor umur tu...

juejue : harap2 insya-Allah eman boley berdikari juga sdri wpun tak g kindy yg penting jgn manjakan sgtlah kan...

kak hanis : terima kaseh sbb share pengalaman akak...insya-Allah akan kami pertimbangkan...budak kan fast learner kan kak...sbb terlebay manjakan sbb tu jadi susah sket nak independent... :)

mommynadia : mula2 mmg ingat nak mskkan playschool jer tapi risau sbb nnti nak transit pi rumah bbysitter...risau takut bley ker dia nak naik and turun van...biasalah parents kan risau terlebay byk sgt...huhu

mieoney said...

Salam,

Sekadar berkongsi,actually BBIM PM dah beroperasi since last year,sy ada htr anak utk playschool kt sana (lokasi sederet family store)..owner tu ustaz dan sume aunties (teacher) sgt baik dn islami (jaga aurat etc)..anak sy awal2 tu pun asek nanges je p school (3.y.o) tp lani dia seronok p school n jumpa kawan2..
tp syg,BBIM PM utk thn 2013 dh tkr owner,aunties pn dh tkr,lokasi pn dh baru atas speed mart tu,sy xteruskan utk anak sy,BBIM ni sy notice xbnyk sgt tekankan hal ehwal islamic (xseperti namanya,even dia ada panel syariah etc) sbb kukurikulum dia terlalu bnyk utk montessori shja,cume sy sgt2 bersyukur,BBIM yg sblm ni owner nyer ustaz,so mereka mmg tambah inisiatif sendiri utk ajar anak2 sy iqra dn hafazan.ikutkan mmg management BBIM xde silibus iqra dlm kukurikulum mereka..
Tp puan,berbalik kepada pilihan puan juga,mcm sy sendiri,apa yg sy tekankan adalah aspek islamic tu,sblm ni sy pilih BBIM sbb ada islamic tu,kaedah montessori tu terlalu bnyk centre yg dh amalkan,in fact leh dpt lg murah dr apa yg BBIM bagi,tp syg kualiti islami tu kurg diterapkan dlm BBIM.sy lihat sendiri dlm fb BBIM,gmbr2 auntie xcover aurat o pakai baju ketat2,so sy mmg amek kptsn utk tidak lg meneruskan anak sy dgn BBIM..maaf,sy tidak bermaksud utk memburukkan BBIM,tp as parents,itulah yg sy nmpk dan sy masih ada pilihan lain,moga yg terbaik utk anak puan juga insyaAllah :)

Salam, saya baru hantar anak ke BBIM Ampang Branch. She's 3yo next year, minggu ni orientation week. Saya masukkan dia dalam Playhouse Regular (3 hours) 8:30-12:00pm. The reason i chose BBIM ni sbb the Islamic value yg diorg tekankan dlm sistem Montessori. Maybe it is too early to judge/comments on their outcome tapi kita ambil pendekatan istoqamah dan tawakkal. Kita dah memilih yang terbaik utk anak kita and move on. Doakan yang bagus2 utk diorang kan. Temporary separation mmg sukar, kesian tgk diorg menangis masa hantar ke sekolah, tapi sekejap je. They actually having fun bila dah jumpa kawan2. Meanwhile, kita as parents tak perlu risau and ada masa utk diri sendiri jugak :). Hope my comments sedikit sebyk bagi u points utk buat keputusan ;) Good luck!

As salam,

I terpanggil untuk respond to this post.. I sent my first boy tu BBIM Putrajaya in 2012 regular programme. He was 4y.o. Normal, first day he cried.. It took 3 months for him to mingle and sesuaikan diri.. Dalam tempoh dia menyesuaikan diri, even I felt very sorry for him, menyesal hantar dia ke sekolah, with such a pricey fees.. but then I tekad, if not now, when??? At times kita kena berhati kering demi kebaikan anak2 kita..

Why I chose BBIM? Simply because I want English and Islamic medium in the syllabus.. Montessori is a bonus to me.. Well from my one year experience, what can i say, my boy changed a lot.. In fact he is more independent compared to his other cousins and relatives of same age..

He can pray (Though sebutan tak terang), recite simple ayat lazim, Al-Fatihah, 3 Qul and doas. (I think thats good enough for four year old boy).

Furthermore, our daily conversation is in Bahasa. Which he felt like talking to alien whenever he's in school.. He doesn't understand any englis at his early days in BBIM.. But alhamdulillah, he is now can understand simple english and converse in english as well..

I am not being biased here.. I just sharing my boy's experience. I am now resuming him to BBIM for 5years with Star Programme and so his younger brother (3y.o) for playhouse.. Every parent of course wants the best for their children so just believe in what you choose because Allah will always there to protect our babies..

Till then, as salam.. :)

FYI, montessori is unlike normal pre-school so u dont have to worry abt ur boy being too small. in fact i enrolled my 3 yo son to one of islamic montessori & am very glad that i did. it's not a book sylabus, they play, pray, taught manners, recite quran (my son can hafz around 7 surah in a few months), living skill, taught to think out of the box etc.

i'm especially proud of how he speaks with others, really polite & soft spoken words. whenever he speaks, it always amaze me. the latest one was while i was lying in pain on my bed, he came to me & said 'its ok mommy, dont cry, everything will be alright' of course i cry but with amazament, proud & touched feeling - he's not yet 4!

if money is no isse, y dont give it a try, u'll be amazed :)
