Last month, I enrolled
As you know, I am not really into the traditional type of teaching as well as early schooling. I mainly focus on play-based learning. But for so many months, Skye has grown her interest in reading. After talking to her about going to reading school, her answer is a resounding YES!
These are the points that convince me to enroll her.
1. Her passion for reading. We started reading to her at a very young age. So I think she learns so love it. I’m not a book worm but my sisters are. So I hope this program will help her more to love books.
2. She can follow instructions. Since Skye can already simple instructions, I guess the teacher will not be having a hard time letting her do her task. Although she’s a bit shy, I know she’ll gain confidence in due time.
3. More structure in her activity. We are in a stage where we balance her everyday activities. I am involved in monitoring and teaching her through the homework and material that they provide. I can give a better schedule of what we can do daily. But of course, we still play!
4. The program itself. Since Kumon is a home-based program, this is a good opportunity to build her to be independent and confident. Someday, she’ll be out there in a real school and I want her to be equipped with the right attitude.
Every child has different development and pace when it comes to learning. I believe it’s best to assess our child first if she/ he is ready to go to a similar platform of learning. Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on how our program will turn out.
