Appraisal

"Jasmine was attached to my centre at Gloryland Toh Tuck, for her final year practicum. She was a dedicated and hardworking individual who was meticulous to her attached class of Kindergarten 2 children's needs. The lessons and learning corners that was required of her for her practicum was interesting and excellent. Not only it was interactive, it also met the individual needs of the children. She created age-appropriate activities integrating play, had benefited the children tremendously. I observed the children engrossed playing at the learning corners. They had not hesitated to re-visit the corners and re-do the activities again."

-Lynn Tan, Principal of Gloryland Learning Center, Cashew
