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.

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.
I hereby confirmed that I had known Elayne Cheong since 2007. Ms Elayne taught my three boys Mental Arithmetic from Feb 2010 – July 2011. My boys are from Alice Smith International School and they were 10, 6 and 3 years old respectively when Ms Elayne first taught them. It has benefitted them tremendously.
At all times I find Ms Elayne to be hard-working, conscientious, honest and courteous. She really knows how to interact with kids helping them to realize their potentials.
I wish her all the best in continuing her passion for children in her future undertakings.
