Officially Enrolled In Kumon

Last month, I enrolled Skye in a Kumon Reading Program. It was a swift 2-day process. We had an evaluation and assessment with Skye. The next day, I went for the parents’ orientation and then processed her enrolment. Our schedule is twice a week with a 1-hour session. Dear daughter is shy and hardly answers the teacher when being asked. But no pressure as I believe she’s still adjusting with the new environment.

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!

Ready for her second day in Kumon Class.

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.
