Merryweather Playcare Centre was established in January 2015 by educators who have been involved in early childhood care & education for over 10 years. After our personal exposure to a Waldorf school and seeing the difference Waldorf education made to our own children, we decided on investigating further by pursuing formal training overseas. Since 2016, although the Waldorf method does not recommend academic learning until a later age, we have decided to add in certain elements of academic teaching into our centre programme so that our students will be able to fulfil the requirements of the Malaysian education system. Other than that, we remain true to the principles of a Waldorf education and our students' parents are grateful for what we have done.

Sincerely, I am very thankful that my son, Caleb has T.Elayne as his teacher. MerryWeather Playcare centre is his first full day childcare centre in Puchong. Because of her patient and love that make him accepting to stay with us in Puchong instead of go back to grandparents 's house in Port Dickson. From June 16 until now, I see a lots of growth on Caleb especially mentally, he is more closer with his father after every review with T.Elayne, he is more open heart to us and he willing to share with me about what he thinking now. He is able to take shower by himself, communicate in simple English, and etc which all learned from Merryweather Playcare Centre. T.Elayne, Thanks for your patience and keep your passion to build a better playcare centre.
I sent my daughter to Merryweather Playcare Centre since 2014 and now my girl is still there for daycare after school, even after graduated from the centre. Throughout these years, I could see that T. Elayne is not merely a preschool educator, she is very passionate in working with each child with true love and care, to make sure they grow up happily and healthily, and become better person when they grow up. My daughter from being a picky eater and difficult child, had improved and became a happier child and knows how to appreciate food and everything. I still remember she called T. Elayne “*Mommy*” … Same goes to other children, I’ve seen them growing happily and healthily in the centre too. The children grew up together since preschool, and now they are good buddies even they are primary school students.
Overall, I trust T. Elayne is a teacher/educator/caregiver by heart. She loves all her centre’s children equally, and treat them as own kids. We all here LOVE T. Elayne so much and we hope she will continue her centre operation as long as possible so that we have peace of mind at work, as we know our children are in good hands.
Elayne is an amazing teacher with the kindest heart. I had enroll my two sons since yr 2014 till to date for the full day care session. I'm so thankful that she is part of our parenting journey with my two boys. The foundation she is providing through her gentle guidance and unwavering support gives us faith my two boys will continue to grow and face the challenges of their future. While I am aware of Waldorf education is not an instant process to evaluate a child academic performance; the values they learned provide a lifelong platform from which to grow!
It's been a year after we sent our elder daughter Xu Jing to study at Merryweather Playcare Center. From a small and skinny little girl, with timid and grumpy character, she is now become more healthy, bravely, independent, sharing and care about the others.
We feel grateful for the loving care and conducive environment with Waldoft teaching methods provided to her. She has been very blessed with awesome activities and great teachers who understand her need.
As parent, we appreciate very much on the guidance provided to us patiently on Waldoft concept as well. It helps us to be more understandable on her different types of behaviour and handle her with grace.
We believe we can draw an unique and beautiful learning curve together with our daughter.
Once again, thank you for the amazing job and please continue the good work to teach children with heart and passion. Your center is truly a gems in early childhood education.
It is nice to see he is being so creative, I think it’s so important. Nowadays, he enjoys tying things to build a house, even tying a knot on his head. This is good for building a highway between the right and left brain. I’m so glad we found your centre.
We are really lucky to have her started her first school at your centre! She is very different in my eyes. Strong, very understanding and independent at her 3 to 4 years. Very, very contented. I can’t thank you enough!
Elayne Cheong is one of my personal friends that I’ve known her for more than five years. She is not only my personal friend but also a teacher to my children for years.
At all time I have found Elayne to be dependable, reliable, dedicated, courteous and honest person. She is also a loving educator with patience that I have ever known. She could handle children in peace.
