This is the guide that all new Singaporean parents cannot do without.
Most new Singaporean parents do not start preparing their children for Primary School education until reality hits them when they have to register their child for Primary One as their child turn six. That leaves them a window of less than 6 months to prepare their children before they start formal education.
While it is debatable whether children really need to be “prepared” for Primary school education, the fact is that Primary school education has evolved way beyond what we as parents were used to during our own time as students in Primary schools. The amount and type of education that our children goes through now is very different from our own expectations. As responsible KiasuParents, we must minimally try to understand the scope of the education, and familiarize ourselves with the syllabus of each of the subjects that our children will be going through. It is from this knowledge that we can craft an education plan for our children which can supplement what our schools provide so that they can grow to fulfill their own dreams as adults.
This guide will be constantly updated with inputs from parents from our community. New articles will be added as the information becomes available. We hope that you will find the information useful, and that you can, in turn, contribute your own experiences and knowledge so that we can all benefit from our shared wisdom.
