My kids are attending the one-month free trial. I'm quite happy with the centre, though it's too soon to see any concrete results. Intend to sign them up for the term after the trial period.

One month free trial? That is very long, so they actually allow you to go for free for one month? That is very good :wink: How are you happy with them? Could you share more?

The centre will do an assessment for your child before the tral lesson starts. The assessment will help them gauge ypur child's learning style, and which level your child should be placed in. This will also help them adapt the teaching method to your child's learning style.

At the end of every month, the teacher will provide a progress report on what has been covered, what your child can do, as well as areas to work on. I find this useful.

For both maths and phonics. For phonics, they will tell you the sounds taught, which words your child can pronounce, and which are the difficult ones. They will also suggest words/phrases to practise at home. Very detailed.

My child is currently attending the program and has improved a lot. For sure, she speaks more clearly and remember words better. Her counting skills improved too. I have been practising stamford's special counting methods with her at home. great teachers, great program, highly recommended!
