FU­TURE-PROOF YOUR CHILD TO­DAY

Mul­berry Learn­ing builds positive-think­ing habits for a bright fu­ture.

Young Parents (Singapore) - - HOLISTIC LEARNING PROGRAMME -

Do you know that what de­ter­mines suc­cess is not knowl­edge or tal­ent alone?

Take a closer look at top ath­letes such as golfer Jor­dan Spi­eth, and fa­mous en­trepreneurs like Jack Ma – founder of e-com­merce firm Alibaba Group – and Face­book co-founder Mark Zucker­berg.

These suc­cess­ful per­son­al­i­ties have some­thing in com­mon – they are able to at­tain de­sir­able re­sults de­spite set­backs be­cause they all started hon­ing their craft and de­vel­op­ing positive-think­ing habits early in life.

In­deed, a re­port by Cam­bridge Univer­sity on habit for­ma­tion shows that chil­dren of­ten de­velop key habits be­fore the age of seven. Through ex­ten­sive re­search, renowned ex­perts and re­searchers from the US have iden­ti­fied six­teen pow­er­ful traits. These skills, named the “Habits of Mind”, pro­vide kids with a struc­tured frame­work for au­tonomous learn­ing. They are com­monly found in suc­cess­ful peo­ple.

The good news is, they are a univer­sal set of skills that can be taught to just about any­one, in­clud­ing preschool­ers. Even the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion’s Gifted Ed­u­ca­tion Branch has adopted these habits to pro­mote in­tel­li­gent think­ing in top stu­dents here!

By ap­ply­ing these habits, chil­dren will grow to be­come self-di­rected learn­ers, fo­cused on each task while com­fort­ably man­ag­ing ex­ter­nal dis­trac­tions and re­act­ing in­tel­li­gently in the face of un­cer­tain­ties.

If you want your preschooler to ben­e­fit from the “Habits of Mind”, make a bee­line for Mul­berry Learn­ing Cen­tre. It is the first and only preschool chain in the world to be cer­ti­fied by The In­sti­tute for Habits of Mind in the US.
