Set­ting the right foun­da­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - POSITIVE PARENTING -

QUAL­ITY pre- school education is im­por­tant to de­velop holis­tic chil­dren with a good com­mand of lan­guages and strong in­ter­per­sonal skills.

By start­ing chil­dren early, they can be moulded to be more pos­i­tive and pro­fi­cient stu­dents when they en­ter pri­mary school.

Joanne Tham, fran­chisee of Smart Reader Kids Pan­tai Hill Park, be­lieves that early child­hood is the best pe­riod of time to ed­u­cate chil­dren as they are re­cep­tive to knowl­edge and in­for­ma­tion.

“Chil­dren are cu­ri­ous and they like to learn new things. Many par­ents send their chil­dren here be­cause we use the Smart Reader Cre­ative Teach­ing Method­ol­ogy to en­hance chil­dren’s cre­ative, imag­i­na­tive and ex­pres­sive skills,” said Tham, who is of­fer­ing the Smart Reader Kids Clas­sic pro­gramme.

Hav­ing stu­dents of dif­fer­ent races, Tham is proud that all her stu­dents can speak and read very well in English.

“It is great to see the chil­dren speak­ing English flu­ently and writ­ing cor­rectly in a few months’ time.

“The sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment wit­nessed by the par­ents are not only lim­ited to en­hanced ver­bal and writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tion, but also the chil­dren’s self- es­teem and con­fi­dence,” she added.

Tham also praised the syl­labus de­vel­oped by Smart Reader World­wide. The or­gan­i­sa­tion un­der­stands that ev­ery child has a dif­fer­ent level of com­pre­hen­sion.

In­stead of pre­sent­ing top­ics in a com­plex man­ner, the Smart Reader Kids mod­ules are sim­pli­fied and bro­ken down to easy to un­der­stand top­ics with the level of dif­fi­culty in­creas­ing pro­gres­sively.

An­other happy and sat­is­fied fran­chisee of Smart Reader World­wide is Ko­mathi Aru­mugam, bet­ter known as Mrs Ravi, who of­fers the Smart Reader Kids and Smart Reader Kids In­ten­sive English Pro­gramme.

“The in­no­va­tive Smart Reader Kids pro­gramme has gone through com­pre­hen­sive re­search and de­vel­op­ment.

“The pro­gramme is uniquely de­signed to de­velop and elicit cre­ativ­ity in young chil­dren.

“I have seen many of our shy chil­dren blossom into so­cia­ble and con­fi­dent all- rounders,” said Ko­mathy, fran­chisee of Smart Reader Kids Ta­man Aman Bant­ing and Smart Reader Kids Pusat Ban­dar Bant­ing.

The qual­ity and ef­fec­tive Smart Reader Kids and Smart Reader Kids In­ten­sive English Pro­gramme have moulded her stu­dents to be ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tors and writ­ers with good com­mand of English.

In ad­di­tion, Ko­mathy’s stu­dents per­formed well in story- telling, singing and danc­ing.

“The Smart Reader Cre­ative Teach­ing Method­ol­ogy and the small classes that pro­vide in­di­vid­ual at­ten­tion to the stu­dents re­ally helped in shap­ing the over­all po­ten­tial of the chil­dren,” added Ko­mathy.

Ko­mathy’s cen­tres have many sup­port­ive par­ents. They en­rolled all their chil­dren at her cen­tres and her for­mer stu­dents still visit and thank her for the strong foun­da­tion that she has built for them.
