You can take him out in the garden house preschool in Singapore which is an early childhood centre where your children get with the ideal environment to learn and grow, well-rounded development and building communication. Your children will get really good environment there to enhance skills.

Hi,

Have a question. My Snake year kid (born Dec) is at N1 now instead of N2. Should I have her promoted to N2 at mid-year to help catchup with the P1 schedule? Any advice on how to cope up and has any one faced this before...?

In most case, the age group are largely as follows :
•Playgroup (18 months to 2 years old)
•Nursery 1 (the year they turn 3 years old)
•Nursery 2 (the year they turn 4 years old)
•Kindergarten 1 (the year they turn 5 years old)
•Kindergarten 2 (the year they turn 6 years old)

Strange that your kid is still in N1. My 2014 (Horse) Nov girl, has already been in N1 since the start of 2017, as this is the year she turn 3 years old.

You should check with the school why you child is still in N1 ?

for me i dont think there much 'catch up' to do for n1 or n2. they are still in the playing stage. basically kids just need to know phonics from a-z, can count 1-10, know the basic chinese bihua. that should be about all they teach in n2. read to ur kid every nite, do some puzzle or play some board games when u r free. that should prepare them well for p1.

but it will be a good idea to get your kid promoted to n2. kid should mix around with kids of their own age.

Hi folks,
Be aware that many centres are not willing to pay for curriculum writers.

For the past 10 years, I was training preschool teachers at the polys and quit recently. I went to a manpower recruitment agency that specialises in the preschool industry.

I told the recruiter I am keen to do curriculum writing and he warned me that the salary will be lower than a principal's salary because the latter brings in revenue for the company but the former doesn't.

I did my own homework by looking at job street. The recruiter was right. Some centres had very low expectations of a writer's qualifications, they ask for a diploma qualification only for writer's position.

I would think a writer need at least a bachelor degree in preschool education.

One new centre put the range of the writer's salary as $3,500 maximum while the principal's salary starts from $3,500.

Raising this for awareness, don't be fooled by the centre's claim of their so-called premium curriculum.

A curriculum writer must be able to see the big picture and align the centre's philosophy with the contents while making room for differentiated learning. He must also have a solid knowledge of child development in addition to subject domain knowledge. And finally, be able to train the teachers who will be delivering the contents and make the necessary tweaks along the way. It is not an easy task. Definitely not any less easy than the principal's job.

Anybody heard about/or had their kids in growing up gifted kindergarten? Any feedback about its curriculum? I have gone into its website and looks impressive. They are into preschool curriculum now. Feel free to share ...

Hi parents! I am from the NUS Child Development Lab, a research lab that focuses on moral and cognitive development in pre-school Singaporean children.

We are currently studying effective ways of promoting honesty in children and are looking for participants to join us. This study will be conducted through a series of interactive games with your child, who will also stand to win prizes (e.g. stickers). We also conduct standardised cognitive and language tests, which can give you some insight into your child's development relative to his/her peers.
