Frequently asked questions
1. How do I enroll my child?
Please write in to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name, date of birth and the branch you are interested in. We will share more on a suitable program, schedule a visit to the branch of your choice and advise on availability.
Please note that we cannot offer a spot if there is no availability. If an offer of a spot is given with the earliest possible enrolment date, please do respond within a week whether you would like to accept or not. The offer expires after a week, to be fair to other waitlisted parents.
When an offer is made and accepted by the parent, please proceed to complete application by completing registration form and paying the application fee. The enrolment fee, term fees and deposit shall be payable upon enrolment. A enrolment date can only be postponed/extension up to a month or the offer shall expire, to be fair to other waitlisted parents. Application fee will be refunded to parents.
We are unable to accept enrolment application without a visit.
Please note that the school has full discretion whether to make an offer and do not have to disclose the reasons behind the decision.
2. Why do parents have to visit with their child?
We ask parents to bring along their child during initial visit because it involves the child in the decision-making and optimises the chance of a smooth transition subsequently. Over the years, we find a strong correlation between a smooth transition to starting school and a child who has been involved in the school selection process.
During the scheduled visit, our Admission Manager will spend as much time as parents and child require on our philosophy, our programs & services, fees and any other questions parents may have. This will give the parents a chance to observe how the child likes the environment. Listen to your parental instinct.
Please note that we do not conduct group visit and the visit is limited to one family at a time. We require all adults visitor to provide an ID (IC or passport) to register at entry for security purpose.
3. Does Trinity Kids allow short-term enrolment?
No, Trinity Kids does not offer short term enrolment for students. This is to preserve the dynamics within classrooms and the community culture of the school.
4. Why is there a long waiting list?
We have been blessed with strong word of mouth and recommendation that contributes to a waiting list for some of our programs.
There is a waiting list for most of the classes and this varies according to the class level, branch and time of the year.
We adhere strictly to our students-teacher ratio and prefer one class per level, say one Toddler class, one N1 class etc per branch. Due to the lower students-ratio of the younger age groups, this tends to be the classes that get filled up first.
Siblings and cousins have priority as we believe in keeping children of the same family together in the same branch. Priority is also given the families who are transferring across branches for any reasons.
Classes tend to be filled up and spots are given out for the year by term 1. Enrolment, however, may be staggered to different entry points to preserve the dynamics within classes.
In addition, we limit the number of new students starting to begining or mid of the calendar month. This is to ensure a suitable level of extra attention is dedicated to the new student and to maximise the chance of a smooth transition to the new environment. We limit new starts each month to maintain the existing dynamics of the class. We want existing students to stay happy too!
Our objective is always in prioritizing the interest of the children.
To first register for the waiting list, we request parent and child to visit the branch of choice. If the parent and child have visited and would like to sign up for a class that is currently full, they can request to be placed themselves on the waiting list.
To manage the waiting list, we factor in consideration such as a sibling priority, extended family (cousins) priority, strong recommendation from existing parent and hence progress on the waiting list may not be linear.
5. What is your phone number?
Please note that we prefer emails for enquiries, due to the volume of enquiries received daily.
We communicate with existing parents through Little Lives, email, phone and face-to-face interaction.
6. What are your operation hours?
Our operation hours are 8 am to 6.30 pm.
Our school session is from 8 am to 12 pm, with daycare extension options to 2 pm and 6.30 pm respectively.
7. What is your policy on late pick-up?
We do not observe a late pick-up penalty as we believe that most parents earnestly endeavor to pick up their child punctually. In the case persistent late pick-ups, we reserve the right to terminate the service.
8. What are your fees?
Our fees range from RM 2,800 to RM 6,500 per term. There are four terms in a year. The fees vary according to the options selected by the parents.
