    Schools in Discovery Bay: DMK or Sunshine?

    Hi there!

    I would like to ask for some input from current/past DMK or Sunshine schools students please? Junior is turning 2 soon, and is waitlisted at both schools' playgroup. Do you have any good/bad experiences with the schools that you would like to share please?

    Thanks so much.

    Hi! My son, who's almost 3 years old goes to Sunshine House and loves it....We sent our older son, who's now 5 there as well and he really enjoyed the class, especially Miss Gigi, who is absolutely wonderful with the kids. I like the fact that they are exposed to Mandarin and also the convenience of being in the Plaza. Very good experience for them both.

    Thanks very much, thekartons!

    A few days after my initial question, we went to DM in the Plaza, and came back with such disappointment. We had another bad experience with them last weekend when they had an Open House Day. So for sure, we're going to Sunshine.

    Sorry to hear you had a negative experience with the DM Play Centre in the Plaza.

    Our son has been going there for a year now and we have been very happy overall with the quality of the teaching staff and centre surroundings and facilities.

    I will admit the administration side can be very frustrating, but we have chosen to work through that as the rest was so positive.

    By the way, DMK also has Mandarin exposure for the 2 yr olds. ;)
