A = founder, Alison Euler
J = host, Justine
J: I’m sure a lot of parents want to know what the admission criteria is for Baby Buddies and Letterland here. So, how do they prepare for the process and you know, get into your fantastic facility?
A: You don’t basically. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, which is the British National Curriculum, it does state that each child is a unique child and every, single chid is a competent learner, no matter who they are. So, if it’s the ability of the child or the language skills of the child or anything. We accept any child to any ability into our schools because we believe as educators, it’s our responsibility to educate all children and that each child deserves a right to an education. So the best way you can prepare your child is just to come and have fun and enjoy their learning journey with us here at Baby Buddies and Letterland
J: Lastly, was there anything you wanted to speak to our audience and parents about? Anything memorable since you’ve opened these facilities here in Hong Kong?
A: Well it’s just, over the last 18 years there’s just been, obviously, so many wonderful memories. Seeing children grow with us and still having friends with children that are like 15 years old now who used to come to Letterland, that’s fantastic to have that link with families that have stayed here in Hong Kong as well. There’s just so many happy memories that we’ve had within the last 18 years and for me personally, one of the biggest achievements we have is that we sponsor the special needs children from Mother’s Choice Children’s Home here in Hong Kong to come to our schools. To watch these children thrive and develop with us and to be successfully adopted out to the States, for me, it’s just one of the biggest things that we’ve been able to do and to contribute back to the society here in Hong Kong as educators. So yes, just to thank all the parents and children that have come to Baby Buddies and Letterland and just enjoyed the learning journey with us and we hope that you continue to come to our schools.
J: Wow, thank you so much. That’s fantastic. Thanks again for doing this interview.
A: Thank you for inviting me. Thank you very much.
J: Yes, thank you.
