If it includes their right-brain training programme as part of the fees, that could make it worthwhile. Does it?

hmmmmmm.....my girl is also attending right brainz training on Sundays and on top of that i manage to get some materials and teach her myself.

My point is: if you have the $$$, go ahead and register. But, you can't guarantee that your child is paying attention and listening in class. Branded school does not mean you will get results.

Please note the above is strictly my personal view. No offence please.

:sweat:
the fees is 800 bucks per month and has every week 1 day of the right brain training... I am not really going for the brand... more looking at the curriculum... it's very different from all the pre schools nowadays...

strange.....i remember that when i called them up, they told me that the fee is $1000++. You are talking about the one at Tanjong Pagar, right?

My girl used to attend her lessons at the Right Brainz Ctr at Bishan for one term. I then transferred her to Little Neuro Tree at T Payoh, because they conduct their lessons in three languagues (each language for each week - English, Chinese and Japanese). Note that they are really not focusing on the langauge, but rather exposing them to it. However, LNT's activity does not include linking memory. I managed to get some materials and have been teaching her.

Just a personal experience, it seem like the trend nowadays that as long as an enrichment centre has gained some reputation, it would venture off into starting some form of childcare centres or kindergardens ... for example Zoophonics kindergarden, Shichida kindergarden, GUG kindergarden etc. It's a business model concept. But whether their cirriculum is really good is subjective, and how one see its worth (considering that the fee don't come cheap).

Shichida Kindergarten

Postby windie » Sun Jun 07, 2009 3:08 pm

Hi,

Does anyone have feedback on Shichida Kindergarten just opened this yr? Can you share how the child has benefited from the program and if they prepare the child from P1? Also, are they accomodating towards children who may be slower in terms of speech and fine motor skills?

TIA!
