Creative Education for Life Learning (CELL) School Cavite
POSTED: JUNE 2013
Creative Education for Life Learning (CELL) is a progressive school at Bahayang Pag-Asa in Bacoor Cavite.
The school’s interior and exterior design is very secure and very child friendly.
Here is a panoramic view of the 2 classrooms
This is the play area, and they have a mini zoo too.
This is the parents lounging area
The washing area and the comfort room
They offer a mainstreaming program or Special Needs Inclusion Program BUT they are not a SPED school. They accept all kids as long as the parents are cooperative and the kids are willing and capable to be in a regular class set-up. BUT you need to provide all the necessary interventions like therapy and shadow teacher if needed.
Here are the requirements for application for preschool:
- Copy of birth certificate
- Copy of Immunization Record
- Two 2×2 ID picture of the child
- Accomplished Application forms (Data File & Medical History Sheet)
- Copy of Marriage contract of Parents
For Mainstreaming/Inclusion Program:
- Latest Assessment from Developmental Pediatrician/Psychologist/Therapist
- Other pertinent medical records
- Duly signed Mainstreaming Policy/Contract
UPDATE: MAY 2014
Ren is still enrolled with CELL for the school year 2014-2015. There are lots of changes that happened at the school when I visited them a few weeks ago. The office was changed, the play area has a new mural and what surprised me the most was the new classroom. It was divided into two.
Since the weather is too hot when I went there, I felt that the classroom was hot.
I forgot to mention here before that they have non air-conditioned classrooms, so with this smaller classroom, I don’t know what the kids will feel when classes starts.
I know this is a small concern of what the school can offer, but I feel responsible to share it with you.
Another thing, they are now offering a referral discount. Wherein existing students will get a P500.00 discount on their tuition fees for every new students that will enroll. Just to let you know, I did not earn a single cent from posting this article and even if you tell them that you learned about them through this site it will still not be credited.
The referral discount only applies if I know you personally and/or I told them about you before you go there and inquire.
I just want to make it clear that I made this article without getting any compensation in return, I did not. I even encouraged you that if you have some problems with the school, you can comment on this page. it is open for discussion and sharing.
But also, I encourage you to talk first to the administration about it because I know they can answer all your dilemmas (if there is any) directly.
UPDATE: OCTOBER 2015
The school is now air-conditioned. There are already around 100 students of CELL this year 2015 (from starter to grade schooler). We are still enrolled here this school year. My son is now in Grade 2.
I updated this post to inform you (so that you won’t be surprised) that the preschool curriculum is very different from grade school. If you decide to enroll your kid/s for grade school here prepare yourself for Science Expos every quarter (this is reporting in front of the class), seatworks every day (or at least thrice a week) and assignments.
If you want your kid/s to be exposed in public speaking and increase their confidence in front of other people then this is a plus point. But, at the same time this can be overwhelming for them and you too. Usually the Science Expo presentation is after the quarter’s final exams.
Final Exams plus Science Expo plus other projects in various subjects will challenge your time management.
BTW, Ren is doing great in reporting. He is now used to stand and talk in front of the class and answer his teachers questions. But there are times he doesn’t want to do it (pagod na!)
So, I’m warning you, be prepared!
Here is an example of how Science Expo is presented – http://mommylevy.com/2016/02/science-expo-organic-farming-report.html
For school year 2017-2018, Ren wanted to change school, so my husband and I decided to transfer him to a school with highschool and one that is more established in handling kids with special needs. Good luck to all students and parents in this school.
