WITH a holis­tic ap­proach to education, Agape Cen­tre for Ex­cel­lence of­fers pro­grams cater­ing to all types of learn­ing styles to help chil­dren who are ahead, strug­gling or just want­ing to im­prove their grades

The cen­tre be­lieves ev­ery child needs to grow in­tel­lec­tu­ally, emo­tion­ally and phys­i­cally and there­fore the em­pha­sis should not just be on aca­demic achieve­ment but also char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment and build­ing chil­dren’s self con­fi­dence and self es­teem.

Pro­grams are con­ducted in a cre­ative and nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment and in­clude lit­er­acy pro­grams (Jolly Phon­ics and Jolly Gram­mar), nu­mer­acy pro­grams (Hands on Ap­proach), cod­ing (Scratch), Man­darin and EQ4Kidz.

“We have been send­ing our son to the cen­tre to help him with his read­ing skills and we are im­pressed with his progress and con­fi­dence,” par­ent Lau­rilee McKay said.

An­other par­ent, Ni­cole Stone, said her daugh­ter had been strug­gling with maths and her con­fi­dence would drop when­ever do­ing it or talk­ing about it.

“She has been at­tend­ing the hol­i­day pro­gram and in just two days, her whole per­spec­tive has changed,” she said.

“She now be­lieves she will get bet­ter at it and that is half the bat­tle.”
