UPDATE: Promoting and upholding bilingualism as the cornerstone of Singapore’s education system was one of the most critical decisions that Mr Lee Kuan Yew made. Our speakers at our Parenting With Love Seminar will be talking about how parents can help children to Excel in English, and share tips on how to Fall in Love with Mandarin. In honor of Mr Lee, we have decided to make the event FREE.
The New Age Parents and New Age Pregnancy Parenting Seminar is back! Learn about how you can prepare your child for Primary School, not just in your child’s academic work, but also helping them to navigate the social terrain.
- Excelling in English
English is a complex language. The plural of box is boxes; but the plural of ox became oxen not oxes. One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese, yet the plural of moose should never be meese. As your child enters Primary 1, their vocabulary will gradually expand. How can parents support their language development? What is expected in the English Primary School Syllabus? Learn about the various important elements of English reading and writing in Primary School.
Speakers: Fiona Walker, Chief Executive Officer and Principal of Schools, Julia Gabriel Education and Lynette Chua, Head of School Support Services, Julia Gabriel Centre
- Tips for falling in love with Mandarin
Having trouble getting your child to converse in Mandarin? How can parents help their children develop a positive attitude towards learning Chinese? Our speakers from Chengzhu Mandarin Centre will share ideas on how parents can make learning Chinese fun.
Speakers: Huang Ying, Head of Chengzhu Mandarin Centre and Iris Lim, Principal of Chiltern House Preschool
- Does This Make Cents? Getting Your Kids Started On Money Management
How much allowance should you give to your kids? Save or spend? Which concept should you teach your child first and why? Learn how you can discuss money issues with your children in fun and age-appropriate ways. Ernest will be sharing his expertise and real-life tested money management techniques.
Speaker: Ernest Tan, Certified Financial Planner, Master Money Coach, Author of Raising Financially Savvy Kids
- Bully Proof Your Child
New school, new friends. It’s a social jungle out there. What are the tell-tale signs of a child who is being bullied? When do we step in and when to leave it to the kids to resolve their own conflicts?
