    Tutor Time Caine Road does not have any outdoor space. My girl is currently there, but I'm now thinking of sending her somewhere else later.

    I've decided against Tutor Time for this reason and think I will stick with Woodlands The Peak. Although the outside space is limited my son enjoys it and I think the teachers are good. My son is 14 months and attends the Wrigglers class, which prepares him for proper nursery.

    so the proportion of time dedicated to Mandarin in Tutor Time (in someone's opinion or is it for sure or is it just a concern??) would be bigger than the one to English?

    actually, when locals say "chinese" they mean cantonese...

    ie) the job requires someone who can speak "english, chinese and putonghua"
