Preschools in Mandaluyong

Most of my daughter's friends already go to school. She sees them in a uniform, black shoes, white socks, and ID and she's like, "I want to go to school too, Mama!" She used to attend a playschool for 2 hours Monday to Friday when she was 2 years old. She got tired of it, so I just have to make her stop. Now that I think she's ready, showing excitement about school, it's time to look for a preschool around the area.

  3. There's a preschool at Greenfield District that has reasonable tuition fees. Good student-teacher ratio. Curriculum is progressive and thematic.

    Kites and Strings Learning Center is located at Mayflower St., Greenfield District, Highway Hills, Mandaluyong City. It's near the Pavilion Mall, The Portal, Flair Towers, Twin Oaks, Soho, Shangrila Plaza, and Kapitolyo.
