sorry, i seldom check this thread so i missed your reply
for my elder dd, i started her on flashcards even before i knew of shichida or any right brain progs. I just tot it's a quick and easy way to input some 'things' to her and to stimulate her. Not sure if it's due to the flash cards routine that her attention span seems to be better than most of her peers even fm young.
Her cc teacher told us she(at 2yo then) can sit through 1 whole story telling session while most of her classmates started to wander around the class about half way through.
Personally, I find that it works for both my gal and my son. But some may feel that showing them the actual thing is better... so it really depends on what suits u n yr kids best.
My gal is also attending a home based lessons using renowned methods. It's run by a group of mothers and so far over 60 students. It's not accepting new ones at the moment as no one is opting out yet. My niece can't get in
Actually, their location is in East Coast side. However, I heard they are planning a new one in Toa Payoh. Personally, I think it's good and cheap! My gal has been attending over 1 year and can count and read Sunshine books level 1 at the age of 3 now. She is also attempting to count with abacus! They focus on 0-3 years and give priority to children with closer proximity. If you are interested, I can ask for permission to give you their contact
Hi I am new to this portal. Saw the thread of discussion that home-based training would be starting in Toa Payoh. Could I have the contact? Any idea what do they teach? Plese send the contacts to my email address at [email protected]. Thanks a million
Also looking for playgroup in Toa Payoh or nearby areas. Any recommendations?
Sent my son there for a term when he was 18-month.
I dont think its any good.
The teacher attached to my son's class is a friend of the two ex-Shicida staff.
They roped her to help out in weekend classes as the two ex-Shicida teacher cannot cope with so many classes.
The part-time teacher, i find, don't seem very skilful and patient. She creates quite a bit of 'free time' activities for you to play with your child in class.
You might as well do that at home.
At the end of the term, 3 parents, including me,
withdraw their 3 kids from it. (There are 4 children in a class)
hi i recently sent my gal to right brilliance n she's enjoying the class very much. Her memory improved a lot n she's able to concentrate better now. She used to get very fidgety after 10 mins but she can sit through a whole 1 hr plus lesson now.
If anyone needs me to refer to get the 5% discount, do pm me. I'm not sure how the referral thing works though. HTH.
