I tink the one at springleaf one is better, as they have a shop that sells SM pdt/CDS.

Which centre do you think is a better choice, given that both are equally far for me? In terms of environment, teachers, management etc...?

Am considering enrolling my children there... Would greatly appreciate your advice.

According to him, the teacher told him, P3 students which she taught in the class all make it to GEP successfully.
And for yr info, Jocelyn Khoo, the director of SM adopted the SM approach to teach her 3 children and all make it to GEP.

If every parent will just spend 30min to an hour reading to their children, playing games and just have that bonding time(not tv time though) through conversations, your child will definitely see the improvement you want.

I agree with some who are asking : What are the PSLE results of the children who attended the various types of mind training?


I wonder how true that is. My kids who attended shichida classes for 21/2 year did not make it to GEP.

Home practise is very crucial.
my boy class parents very "on" , everyday also practice linking memory, flash card with their child, so dun assume by just sending yr child to SM, they will excel, its the daily effort that parents teach/practise with their child counts.

joshjay: My son is at Springleaf. Can't comment on the other outlet since we have not been there. We are happy at Springleaf.

try and sunset_dae: fully agree with both of you that parents' effort is the key to success in Shichida method.

Hi

Yes, parents efforts is totally needed....

They have to do their "homework", recite poems, linking memory, peg memory, other adhoc works given out by the teachers.

Also you have to do other work with them like reading, writing, etc.

Definitely need lots of home practice, SM only helps to give you ideas on how to do certain stuff, the rest is up to the parents....

I personally also do not think the IQ score is accurate, otherwise we will be having lots of geniuses around. At the same time, it's true that the kids at Shichida are more exposed to those sort of IQ questions, thus they are better off than other kids of the same age when tested.

The questions are the same for the older kids, except that the older you are, the more questions you are expected to do within the 20 mins to get the same score as another younger child. The score is "age-adjusted" in that sense.

Is it possible to join the SM only at 5 years old?

I've never had the intention of sending my almost 5 years old son to SM until a friend told me how it has helped her son. But seems that most kids start at a much earlier age!

Kindly advise.

Hi

I don't know about age though but I guess you need to have patience to see whether it will work for the 2 of you.

If time and budget permits, you might want to try?
