" My son first entered Child's SPACE at age 2.8 to attend their summer playgroup program. Because I saw the teachers' compassion for each student, I decided to continue his schooling there. He is now in Pre-Kinder and I have no regrets. Because of their play-based and child-centered structure, my son does not feel the pressure of being in school like most traditional schools. No morning tantrums because he really looks forward in going to school everyday. He comes home with new learnings not only on academics but also on good values and faith. I am proud to be part of Child's SPACE family. I would highly recommend this wonderful school to parents seeking a quality learning environment for their children."

"As parents, we are very pleased when Keilah enjoyed her Nursery year at Child's Space! She was exposed to different activities that made her ask, explore and learn more. Child's Space addressed all the aspects of our child's development. They provide well detailed quarterly assessment, which help us parents to focus on what she needs to learn more. The school did not limit learning on the basic reading and writing. They will encourage your child on rough&tumble play which our little daughter lacks from having sisters as siblings. We noticed Keilah's full development at Child's Space, thus, we look forward to another fun-filled learning this coming school year.Keep it up Child's Space!"

"Never have we found a school where teachers keep a close-bond relationship with their students, but here in
Child's SPACE. That's one of the reasons why we love this school. Teachers are all professionals. They are so kind, loving and patient to the kids. They see the kids as precious human beings that have unique talents and abilities. Thus, mode of teaching considers individual differences and unique learning abilities. Kids themselves see the school as a very comforting home and not just a place to learn and play. Our son, Ryle in particular, truly enjoyed studying in Child's Space. He had learned a lot of things through experience, discovery, exploration and teacher's stories, teaching and guidance. He developed his creative thinking and self-confidence. They are learning while playing-- as my son always tell us, "Kids do best when they play."
We had regrets then why we didn't enroll our eldest son , Ryle to Child's SPACE when he was in Nursery, but we are glad and thankful that Child's Space teachers were able to fill what he had missed. Now, we are very confident that Ryle is very much prepared to enter a new phase, which is Grade 1. Moving forward, our second child will surely go to Child's SPACE when it's time for him to start school. "
Thumbs up to you Child's Space!

My husband and I made the best decision when we enrolled our daughter Ava at Child’s Space. It’s one of the best preschools in Metro Manila to bring in a child for her early childhood education. The teachers as well as non-teaching staff are caring, nurturing, warm and committed. They are trained professionals and are experts in teaching education infused with fun and values. I’m impressed with what my daughter has become. It’s feels so rewarding as a parent to have my child come home talking about her friends, new colors she learned, learning about her human body- how she is different from a boy and new songs she learned at school. She has improved academically and has developed socially as a kid.
Child’s Space goes beyond our expectations. Our experience has been great. Thanks a lot and more power!

We thank God for leading us to Child’s Space! “Christ Centered, Quality of Teachers, Progressive” – these are our three non-negotiable requirements in finding the right school for our children. Child’s Space met them all and even exceeded our expectations.
Christ-Centered Mission and Vision – A rare find in a pre-school!
Child’s Space mission is to provide a Christ-Centered environment for its students. Quoting a fellow parent “while it is no longer common to find a pre-school that includes Jesus in their curriculum, Child’s Space has a special subject called Jesus Discovery!” And we feel very blessed knowing that our children’s school is our partner in teaching our children how much they are loved by a Great God!
Child’s Space Christ-Centered mission and vision also gives us the peace of mind that our children are growing in a safe and loving environment. The values the school embraces is very much aligned with our personal beliefs.
Whenever our children tell us their great stories about their typical day in school, we are always affirmed that God has placed them at the right place.
Quality of Teachers – Very creative and passionate!
We commend the quality of teachers in Child’s Space! Aside from their very good academic backgrounds (many of them having Masters Degrees or are currently taking one), we have personally witnessed their creativity and passion in making learning enjoyable for their little students. We are amazed on how they conceptualize and implement special activities for the school. We honor you Teachers! Job well done! We pray that God will continue to bless all of you. J
Progressive Learning Approach – Learning in Child’s Space is Fun!
We really liked the progressive learning approach that Child’s Space offers. Our children are always excited to go to school because Child’s Space makes learning very fun!
Just to share, our eldest is starting to read at 4 years old and already knows the concept of days and dates! Our other child, in just one year, from being very shy has significantly developed her confidence with the help of the school and her very good teachers. J
Very Affordable (a Big Bonus!) – Child’s Space is the most affordable progressive pre-school in the Metro!
1 is to 7 Teacher to Student ratio. Progressive. Very Good Quality of Teachers. Christ-Centered program. With all these offers, it is surprising to know that the tuition fee is 40%-60% more affordable than most progressive type school around the area.
We honor the school founders for their generosity in offering such quality education at an affordable price.
We are really blessed to have found Child’s Space. God willing, we look forward to spending more years with this school. We do pray for exponential growth in all areas of your plans – for the school, for your teachers and your students!

Our son Ezekiel Ivan C. Aromin, or “Evan” is an only child and also an only grandchild which limited his interaction with other kids. We wanted to increase his exposure to children his age so we enrolled him in school at a very young age of 3. Evan’s first school was “traditional” that focused on the core subjects and he had a difficult time comprehending basic ideas since he was still used to “play” and not formal schooling. On his supposed second year in school, we looked for another school, prayed that it will help Evan love learning. We saw a flyer on Child’s Space and called to inquire about the school and the methodologies they use. Teacher Lady scheduled us for a meet up and visit to the school with Teacher Cecilia. I immediately felt that it was going to be a very good preschool for Evan which will prepare him for big school and help him love learning. It took about a quarter for Evan to adjust but the journey was well worth it. Learning through play helped develop Evan’s love for learning. The low student to teacher ratio also ensured that Evan’s emotional and academic needs were properly monitored and addressed, also in coordination with us, his parents. Various teaching tools proved effective, with music and arts as those that appealed most to our son. Two years in Child’s Space transformed Evan from a timid and non-interactive child to a self-confident and very friendly person. We thank God for leading us to Child’s SPACE and we shall always look back and remember how blessed Evan was to have been “reared” in this institution.

We were never a believer of sending kids to school at an early age until we came across Child Space!
Kayel was once a very shy girl and would literally ignore strangers and even cry at times. At first, from a fathers perspective, I was fond of saying ok keep that until your 30! (mostly due to my fears) but Child’s Space showed us how important social involvement is to a child’s development and helped us nurture our daughter to become a very confident and smart little girl that is making her way to a big school with very impressive comments from the teachers who evaluated her; prompting the questions, where does she go to school?
It has always brought us joy every time we pick up Kayel from school as she has always something to share to us and does it in a very enthusiastic manner! (Oh my goodness it's a turtle!)
Kayel’s social skill is really polished by Child Space to the point that we have to stop her from talking to our friends, which she would eagerly share her jokes with. We are really amazed by how involved and nature conscious she is! She consistently reminds us to turn off the lights to save energy and not to let the water run.
Her "can do" attitude and analytical skills are becoming very evident which most of the time puts us in awe on how she figure things out and know what goes where... from driving to Frank Sinatra.
All the developments we have seen in Kayel made us say we made the right choice with Child’s Space; dedication coupled with personal touch by the (beautiful) teachers gave us peace of mind and was one of the deciding factors of choosing Child’s Space!

Being a working mother, Yanna is left at home only with the company of her yaya everyday. During her toddler years, my husband and I thought its better to send her to school, rather than leave her alone at home where her only learning can come from the TV. With this in mind, we also thought of the dangers of sending a child too early to school, because of what other mothers call the “sawa” factor. At that time, Yanna was only 2 ½ years old. Coincidentally, when we were considering all these, my late father informed me that there was one party interested to rent a space in my Lola’s newly built building to start a new school. I learned that the school’s approach was different from the traditional one – it was a progressive school. So I did my homework. I researched the net what a progressive school is. I learned that a progressive school is play-based among other things, and so I thought hey this could solve our “sawa” factor problem. At the same time, I can be at ease whenever Yanna is in school, knowing that she’s learning while she’s having fun. After all, what is a kid if he or she doesn’t know how to play? And so our 3-year journey with Child’s Space began.
Now what is Child’s Space to us as a school? Diba SPACE stands for School for the Practice of Appropriate Childhood Education? Now, I thought of another meaning for the SPACE acronym. It goes like this:
· Second Home – It’s very comforting to know that everyday Yanna is very excited to go to school. She enjoys going to school so much. And whenever there are long breaks, she tells me she misses her classmates and teachers. I think that’s how Yanna sees her school: her second home, her second family.
· Pretty Teachers – I remember during my late father’s wake, when the teachers visited us, my younger brother had this comment: “Ate, ang gaganda talaga ng teachers ni Yanna.” Does anyone in the room disagree? =)
· Approachable – One nice quality I experienced here in Child’s Space is that the teachers are all very approachable. You really see them as a partner in your child’s education and well being. I find it very helpful that we can easily text or call the teachers to clarify something, or to ask for a favor. Being a working mother, I can not always accompany Yanna during class trips. So she is only accompanied by her yaya. I find it reassuring that I could just text the teacher to ask that they assist Yanna and her yaya during the trip. I have a lot more examples on my mind, but unfortunately I have only a limited time for my speech =)
· Child Centered – This is the main reason why we chose Child’s Space as Yanna’s preschool. There are a lot of schools out there claiming to be progressive, but are not really true to its principles. In Child’s Space I can attest that the education here is truly child centered, it’s really individualized. For me that kind of education is better, with the teacher adjusting to the pace of the child, rather than the other way around where the child adjusts to the pace of the teacher.
· Effective – Well I must say we wouldn’t be with Child’s Space for three solid years, which if I may add includes summer classes, if we didn’t see the school as an effective partner in my child’s education. We saw Yanna’s development and improvements through the years, and we are quite happy with the overall experience we had with the school.
With the families enrolling in the next school year, I give you my word, your sons and daughters are in good hands =) Thank you and may God bless us all.
