Early Childhood Learning in PJ

25/05/2016

Young toddlers and children are in a near constant state of learning, development and discovery.  This is why it is so important to cultivate their imaginations and cognitive processes early on by providing them a stimulating play environment:  after all, children often learn through play.

But in today’s modern world, often both parents work part or full time jobs in order to provide their children with better opportunities.  So picking a place that has early childhood learning is no small task, especially when you live in PJ!

On one hand, there are a lot of schools, kindergartens, preschools and daycare centres to choose from in PJ, but on another hand, as parents, we want the most bang for our buck!  But before we get into an all-in-one preschool, playschool, daycare centre and early childhood learning centre in PJ, let’s first look at what early childhood learning consists of.

What Early Childhood Learning Consists Of

Early childhood education, or ECE is a branch of education theory which relates to the teaching of young children (formally and informally) up until the age of about eight. Infant/toddler education, a subset of early childhood education, denotes the education of children from birth to age two.

As with many parents in Malaysia wanting to give their child a head-start on education, some opt to enrol their children as young as two (2) months old:  some do this out of necessity while others want their children to experience a stimulating environment that spurs growth and development.

Usually the curriculum includes the following:

·       Activities and games that support motor skills and development;

·       Activities and games that support cognitive abilities and creative problem solving;

·       Creative classes such as dancing, singing and other art classes;

·       Experiential hands-on learning such as playing with sensory items (such as play-doh, blocks, etc);

·       Thematic activities which highlight specific topics such as “healthy eating,” “under the sea creatures,” and “wonderful weather” to provide distinctions on said topics.\;

·       Social-emotional development like manners, cordialities and conduct;

·       Basic hygiene such as washing and sanitising hands, brushing teeth, etc;

·       One-to-one lessons with the teacher(s) and group activities.

·       Physical education such as jumping, stretching and other movements which stimulate muscle growth and motor control;

·       Naturally, the curriculum also covers educational basics such as the alphabet, phonetics, numbers, counting, basic addition and subtraction, science, discovery and history.

Age For Enroling Children For Early Childhood Learning

The typical age in Malaysia for enroling children into early childhood learning is two years old though, as stated above, some parents start as early as two (2) months old.

Early Childhood Learning At Little Human Scholars

As a parent, finding an awesome early childhood learning centre in PJ can be a daunting task and, depending on your needs, it can be a difficult one to undertake.

For example, let’s say you and your spouse work from 8 am to 7 pm most days.  Most of the daycare centres in PJ close at 6 pm latest.  This doesn’t give you the time needed to pack up, leave the office and pick your child up from the daycare centre

Or if you are a parent who wants to check in on your child throughout the day to ensure they are receiving the quality education you paid for.  Many centres don’t have CCTV access, let alone CCTV access that the parents have admittance to.

Some parents prefer sending their child a half-day only, while others need transportation and meal services.  The point is this:  every child has different needs, and while there are many early childhood learning centres in PJ, many might not offer what it is you require.  This is where Little Human Scholars preschool, kindergarten, playschool and daycare centre in PJ offers all of the above and more!

For one, their hours start at 7 am and go until 7 pm.  If you are stuck at work on certain days and need childcare support after hours, they even have an option for that called “hourly drop off” where they charge a nominal hourly rate for after hours, weekends and even public holidays.

Another great service they offer is CCTV coverage for parents.  Once you enrol your child in either kindergarten, preschool, playschool or full-day daycare, you will receive a username, password and free phone app so that you can check on your child any time.

Last, but certainly not least, the best part of this school is the incredibly talented, caring and loving educators that teach the classes.  If you are a parent who prefers having considerate and nurturing adults around your child, who won’t hit or verbally accost them, then Little Human Scholars is one of the best choices of schools in PJ.

If you would like to try-it-before-you-buy-it, you can register your child for a free week trial by filling out the form here.  As parents, you are allowed to sit in for the first two (2) days to observe the class and teaching methods used by Little Human Scholars.  By the third day however, they ask that you give your child the space to explore the school on their own.  The school hours are from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, and again, this free week trial comes with absolutely no cost to you (unless you were seeking additional services such as meals, transportation or after hour care).

My advice is to check out this all-in-one early childhood learning centre in PJ and make up your mind for yourself!

Wishing you happy parenting experiences!!
