True. No one is forcing parents to buy wah

On a side note, if really fully intend to accelerate, might as well buy p1 papers :evil:

K2 work is rather similar to P1 work. If pop by Popular and flip thru K2 assessment, parents should not be shock.

With the new directives shared by insider, not sure if kindy and CCC will change track.

Maybe the shocked parents do not send their pre-school kids for enrichment bah, heard that the expensive one at united Sq now has classes for pre-school.

If remember correctly, TH, my kids not in it, give their K2 class test too.

If afraid of self-esteem if fail test, I find that if parents don't care, neither will kids. dd1 has tests in P1 but she was only aware of tests in P2. Even now she does not know the implication of tests.

If worried abt kindy administering such tests, don't need to worry lah becos result of tests will not affect P1 placement.

Doing p1 test papers at K2 not considered advanced teaching lah since K2 already teach P1 stuff.

Although the cover page title is "exam papers" but i believe they are daily worksheets. Some kindys let the kids do alot of worksheets.

U r right. They are merely worksheets that happen to look like "exam papers". Vendor anyhow print "exam papers"...tsk tsk

They look no diff from those Bridging K2-P1 assessment books Popular is selling.

Why not just buy those K2 assessment books instead of "Top Kindergarten" exam papers. Is there such a league table in the first place? *ROLL EYES*

If kindergartens are still exposing students to unnecessary worksheets and tests, I wonder are they still living in the 80's? 21st century early childhood education should be what our children of this age need to be exposed to. Curiosity in children will be diminished with the increment of worksheets. Real authentic learning should be exploratory learning that ignites a child's curiosity to want to learn more.
