The First Premium Student Care Centre in Singapore
If you’re looking for before or after school care arrangements for your child as he/she enters primary school, look no further!
Out of the Box Kids’ Club is a premium student care centre founded by 2 working professionals, who are more importantly mothers themselves, with primary school-going children of their own. With the aim of being the ideal before and after school care solution for parents, especially that of working parents, Out of the Box Kids’ Club is a holistic student care centre that takes care of the all-rounded development of each child. In addition to providing academic guidance and school-work supervision, the dedicated and caring team at Out of the Box Kids’ Club also ensures that each day for the children is filled with a host of fun enrichment activities.
Is your child entering Primary 1 next year? Are you starting to feel stressed, anxious or worried about how your child will settle into the school environment? Will he/she make friends? Will he/she be able to learn well and enjoy a great start to their learning journey?
Entering Primary 1 can be a very exciting time for a child and the parents but it is also a time of great adjustment and transition. And a well-prepared child will look forward to school and settle in much more smoothly.
How then can parents make sure their child is well-prepared and ready to learn?
As an independent platform for commercial education services in Singapore, we have seen many discussions on various service providers. The happy customers sing praises, the unhappy ones rage and swear, while the skeptics would raise an eyebrow now and then as they critically assess the comments and tear them down as biased or irrelevant. Yes, critical reviews are fun to write and read.
Occasionally, we do come across some educators who stand out of the crowd, and yet remain hidden, because it is not in the nature of these truly good educators to actively promote themselves. Education is about changing people's lives, to find ways to empower and encourage students to challenge their limits. Each step taken by their students, no matter how small, is significant progress in the eyes of these passionate educators.
Spotting careless mistakes in your child’s work is a common but frustrating occurrence for many parents, especially if these mistakes cost marks in an important assignment or during the examinations.
And I’m sure many parents have well-intentionally reminded their children to “Be more careful with your work” or “Remember to double-check after you finish” And yet, these reminders do not seem to work much effect.
Well, besides reminders and patience, we can adopt a more ACTIVE approach to nip this issue in the bud and empower the child to build the ability and keen-ness towards details and ‘subtle’ differences in his/her work.
Ask any champion athletes how they arrived at the top performance of their sports or what they did to achieve peak performance, and you can be sure that besides natural talent and gift, each of these sports champions began by working and building their sports fundamentals before they move on to sharpen their skills and ‘master’ their game. And even when they are at the top, they still consistently put in hard work and effort to fine-tune these fundamentals.
In the same way, if we were to ask ‘How can my child achieve his/her true learning performance and reach their best potential?’
The answer is: We need to build the child’s learning fundamentals!
So, what kind of learning fundamentals are we talking about?
Now that you have successfully registered your child in a primary school, you are probably thinking about his/her before or after school care arrangements. Look no further, because Out of the Box Kids’ Club provides the desired continuity to your current child-care arrangements when your child enters primary school.
Are you having frequent problems with your computer when all you want to do is use the internet? What if your child needs to do some urgent research for a school project and the computer simply will not turn on?
Over 80% of our homes have a computer, and 76% has access to the internet (IDA, 2008). We use the internet and home computers for a variety of functions such as Instant Messaging, information research, online banking, shopping and entertainment. 30% of our children aged 7-14 years also use the internet for education and learning purposes (IDA, 2008). So it can disruptive, even crippling, when your computer breaks down and you can’t get it working again.
