List of Pre-school/Daycare in Mandaluyong and Tuition Fees

Choosing a pre-school is one of the momentous decision we do for our kids. Education is very important and essential, I believe all of us parents know that and this is something we will do everything that we can, to give them the best education they can possibly have. At di ako nainform na ang mahal na pala magpaaral ng pre-school ngayon. Baket? Dinaig pa tuition fee ko nung college. I've been researching, inquiring and reading reviews about schools here in Mandaluyong. Let me share what I got and let's start with the expensive one.

This is the first pre-school I saw around our area that I got interested with. According to them, the fee depends on how many months and which programs your child will be enrolled in. Cambridge is a Singapore International Preschool founded in 1993 by Yale Holdings Pte Inc. and began operation in the Philippines in 2001. They use a child-centered, teacher-framed approach which means they don’t rely on a single method for all students.

Annual Fee: According to smartparenting site, ₱150,000 to ₱185,000 (inclusive of materials and snacks).
*Price may increase or different anytime, depends on the location and program.

This learning center has a huge poster along Shaw Blvd. so I can't help but notice that. When I saw it, I tried browsing for this school and I saw a lot of good reviews about it. The facilities are great too but, sad reality, I just can't afford it. Clayton Learning Center is a progressive quality preschool that respects the uniqueness of each child in a warm, loving, secure, and ideal learning environment. All their classes are offered in English and Mandarin for children as young as 10 months up to 6 years old.

Annual Fee: According to smartparenting site ₱80,000 to ₱125,000.

These are only few of the expensive preschools in Mandaluyong that I know. If I can afford any of them, I might try one of these schools but of course, we need to live within our means so the hunting must go on. I kept on looking for a school (I actually prefer progressive school because I believe that kids will learn effectively through play) that won't hurt my wallet and bank account. So here are the list of not so expensive preschools.

I personally don't know this school and I don't have any friends or relatives who went here but I read on forums, blogs and other resources that they have the affordable tuition fee for pre-school and grade school. According to the resources I read online, the experience is good and worthy of their money. The school’s aim is for everyone involved in the education of the children enrolled in STePS – the pupils’ parents and guardians, benefactors, the school administrators, the faculty and the staff of the school – to be united, to move as one in helping these budding children develop into full-bloomed flowers in their quest for learning that goes even beyond time, without losing the Christian values inculcated in them.

Annual Fee: ₱26,000 to ₱30,000 (according to the forum I read, I'm trying to contact them to clarify this)

I saw this on facebook and inquired for tuition fee. They pretty much don't update on their social media accounts nor have their own website so I don't know what kind of approach they use for teaching. I think they use traditional, I'm not sure but their tuition fee is affordable.

I saw this school when I was still studying in PUP. I saw from the forums that parents had great experience in this school and very satisfied with the teaching. This school is using a Montessori approach of teaching which means, lessons are based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. They have practical life and motor skills program and it focus on exercises that'll lead to independence, self-control, and intellectual order essential for later learning.

This one is walking distance from our house and I've seen this school a lot but it's ironic I've never seen this school with kids. I don't know, maybe that's how secured they are. So I thought, this is not a pre-school but a tutorial center only. I contacted them thru facebook and visited the place. According to them, they use eclectic approach which is a combination of different methods of teaching.

Last week, we tried a one day free trial of Camp Start and I'm really happy with it. They started last year, so practically they're new. I saw them on facebook and reached thru messenger, I'm glad because they respond quickly to my inquiries. They use progressive approach means learning through play. They have 2 teachers and 2 assistant teachers for maximum of 20 students which is super thumbs up for me. I like the place, very secured, kids are comfortable, they teach values and hygiene during class. They even have potty time which helps parents if they are having problem potty training their kids. I like it and decided to enroll my son this coming school year.

So far yan palang ang mga info na nakalap ko and hopefully it helps you mommies and daddies who are looking for a pre-school. I promise I'll update this. Kung di talaga kaya ng budget niyo ang mga gantong schools, there are barangay day care centers who offer teaching for pre-school na minimal lang ang fee like below 5k for whole year.

If you know a school that can benefit other parents, let me know. You can send me a message thru my facebook page, or email me at or comment it down below. Thanks for dropping by!
