Parents Seminar June/July 2015

Dear friends,

Many have asked me to conduct parents seminars but I have too much on my plate to plan earlier. It took me a while to get organized.

I have been thinking of what to conduct in the current environment so that the seminars are useful and informative.  I have now updated the seminars with the new findings, research and development in the education environment.

The courses are (click on link to register):

  1. The Beginnings (June 27, morning)
  2. Nurturing Early Primary School Years (June 27, afternoon)
  3. Alternate Pathways (July 11, morning)

This June and July, I will be offering The Beginnings, meant for parents with preschool children in preparing their children for academic pursuits. I remember my friends used to laugh at me for over-preparing my children for school. I am thankful I did. 

And because I did, they managed to do well enough to move directly from primary school to university level courses. It is not about just sending them to a dozen preschool activities, nor about signing up for every co-curriculum available. It is about time management and planning their future. So, I will be sharing with you how to give your kids a headstart.

You can sign up for The Beginnings here.

The second seminar I will do is Nurturing Primary School Years, where I will discuss the importance of finding your child's passion and how to get him/her to academic excellence and possible acceleration whether or not the child is gifted.

This seminar is NOT about sending the kids to more and more tuition to catch up in the mad rat race. It is about preparing them for tertiary studies even at this young age, so that they can have an edge right up to university.

You can sign up for Nurturing the Primary School Years here. This should be suitable if you a child already in or due for primary school.

Lastly, I believe there are too many changes in our current education scene and there are new and better ways to navigate the education system. As you probably already know, I am always for acceleration and enrichment, and these must cater to every child and individually. 

I will be going through the resources available, and the strategies involved. If we sit around and wait for the education system to change, our kids will miss the opportunities. We parents must take charge of our own children's education and therefore their destinies.

So, if you want your children to have a differentiated or individualized education, you can do it alongside school and still your children graduate from the university in their teens. I will be giving away the secrets and teaching you how to do it, without the expected stress.

You can sign up for Alternate Pathways here. This seminar is for a parent with child of any age, who wants a differentiated education, and wants to know what he/she can do to help.

I have arranged these kind of late and the rooms available are not that big. Therefore, please sign up early as our seminars tend to be overbooked. It also helps us arrange your refreshments and seating arrangements.

As always, remember that if your family income is less than $2000, we provide a scholarship and the seminar is free.  You just drop me a message on my Facebook Page.  If your family income is between $2000-3000, you pay half.
