Thanks Herbie for your response.

Yeah, sounds like it's a bit of Kumon style...

Am wondering if interactive programmes are better for preschoolers though.

I think we can compare Seriously Addictive Maths (SAM) to MPM instead of KUMON. Three of them are based on worksheets but MPM and SAM worksheets are thinking worksheets meaning they are not only using formulas and equations and doesnt rely much on memorization, they have worded problems too, number bonds, data analysis, measurement, etc..Questions that our children are getting from their primary schools' exams.

From their website, it says there that SAM adheres to the MOE syllabus too...interesting..

What I like about Enrichment classes that are based on worksheets is they cultivate independent learning and discipline as they don't depend on tuition teacher that they can see only once a week..Worksheets based enrichment classes like KUMON and SAM give homework that children needs to do for few mins everyday to cultivate good study habits and self-discipline :)

Yeah, that's why I'm still a little hesitant about sending my kid for Math enrichment classes. Wanna see whether there's sthg that the classes can do that I can't do on my own (provided i have the time and commitment).

Hmmm.... I think I prefer MPM math over S.A.M.

My child attended the class for over 3 months with S.A.M and start to feel bored! Very assessment based. I switched her to MPM math recently, am seeing that she enjoys the class more. Slightly more expensive though, but I see that the materials are more structured and an interactive! Thumbs up for MPM math

different children have different responses...

i send my ds to kent ridge before but my ds doesnt like the tutor... but kent ridge is a plc where so many parents around me say is gd and must try and so on... but it does no good to my ds because he simply doesnt like the whole plc...

in the end, we just settled for a nearby tuition center which he enjoys because he says the teacher is fun when she teaches...
but i hv my neighbour complaining about the tuition center previously and was hesistant about switching until my dh says

"dun always listen to the whatever parents of dunno-what-name kids!!! they are not ur children, what matters most is ur children wants to learn in that school!!"

this wakes me up... be it gd or not, most impt is children willing to learn in there...
