Dear Parents,

My youngest boy is turning 5 in 2016; K1. He is currently full-time in a CC on weekdays. I did enrolled him for school's Phonics class, Speech & Drama-Both English & Chinese) in 2015. Starting from 2016, he will only take Chinese Step-Up Phonics Reading Programme and Art Explorer partly due to budget. I drop him out of English Phonics is because the teacher teaching will be his class teacher(a Pilipino-No Offence); I just don't think she is trained to teach Phonics because the school's principal aren't able to provide any certs in relation which I am not comfortable with. Am thinking of continuing with the English S&D with the school by outside provider-ACT. I notice that he is quite good with numbers as he knows 1-80 plus so I hope to further enhance his Maths so that he can have a easier time in Primary School later. Because his eldest brother is currently having a hard time with Maths & Science in Upper Primary:(

Any Maths or English Phonics or Reading Programme for recommendation in AMK area; preferably effective and reasonable priced? Would prefer the recommendations to come from parents who have kids attending these courses before and results are seen visibly in their children.

Thanks in advance

Hi Baby BJ,

My nieces attended a great enrichment class at From Tiny Acorns when they were in K1 and K2.
It helps their English, Math and Science so much that they became such advanced students. The older one is doing really well at Upper Primary now. From Tiny Acorns classes are not the usual phonic or reading classes, but through a very hands-on learning approach, my nieces made lapbooks and in the process learnt so much. You can check it out at https://from-tiny-acorns.blogspot.sg/. The founder of the classes has girl same age as yours and she teaches her own kid using same materials. http://domesticgoddess-ourworldmyworld. ... ed-ii.html Hope this helps you!

Hi parents! I'm from NUS and am doing a final-year project to understand more about why parents send their children to enrichment classes.

If it's not too much trouble, could you guys help me fill up this survey?

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8MTB3WN

The aim of the survey is to understand how early a child is enrolled to enrichment classes, reasons behind their enrolment and how have the classes benefit the child.

The survey is anonymous, so please answer freely! :)

Thanks in advance!

Hi, JMHO from friends' experiences, since I've not used MS or ICR pre-school programs before. If it's English enrichment, I'd go for ICR. My experience w MS Primary makes me feel tt MS doesn't really take good care of the child's security, so I'd not consider them for my youngest (pre-schooler, unless I want to sit outside their classroom throughout! :-P )
