Learning is a life long journey, and it is necessary for us to inculcate in our children the desire to learn. Here are a series of articles, tips and tools that can help give our kids get the head-start on their learning journey.
The best way for parents to beat the stress of Primary school education is to stay informed! This section contains a wealth of information contributed by experienced parents and teachers on how to prepare your child for Primary school, register successfully for a Primary school, and help your child overcome the challenges of Primary school education in Singapore.
While parents get a breather once our children reach Secondary school, there is still a need to keep informed so that we can guide our children with advice based on facts. Stay in touch with the latest happenings in the academic front, and learn how to support your child through Secondary school while battling teenage angst.
Beyond Secondary school, education becomes more specialised, and the options for further education increase exponentially. Find out which path is most suitable for your child, through A-Levels, polytechnics, IB, and unversity degree programmes.
As parents, we occasionally need to be inspired and motivated to remind ourselves of the great responsibility that we have in growing our children into loving and responsible adults.

Are you referring to this:
My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.
IMO, William Wordsworth was celebrating the innocent curiosity of the child, and prays that he will continue to retain this quality always, as long as he lives. He feels that life is not worth living if one loses his innate ability to appreciate the marvels of life and nature.
So even as the child becomes the man, in spite of our experiences and knowledge that brings wisdom and enlightenment on how life works, we should continue to live our days in appreciative wonder of life.
Yes, it is a timely reflection for fathers, who can relive their childhood memories through their children, and remember how, once, we used to be like them – curious, innocent, and full of hope for the future.
Ever wonder what this means…. I read this in sec 2 literature … The prelude by William Wordsworth
sad to say I only realized what it meant now …. And this is how I interpret it
you only can learn about yourself after looking at your child and see yourself…in him or her … This realization about yourself is the key to life ……. Your child is you ….
I like these great contributions.
Thanks for sharing.
