|Tips#1: Read Together Every Day|
|Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.|
|Tips#2: Give Everything A Name|
|You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"|
After school recreational programs, which are mostly sports activities, provide a welcome break from the repetitiveness of learning and studies of children. The mental challenge and the physical exertion make the children attending preschool Bukit Timah feel a renewed zest and a pleasant sense of fulfillment. Group activity teaches the children social skills, discipline and patience. It is a proven fact that children involved in extracurricular activities get better grades than others. Sometimes closing the textbooks and playing a game may be the best way to handle their studies. Unlike educational programs, recreational programs do not tax the mental processes. But, they do aid the learning process by making the children attending Childcare Bukit Timah more active. A child who is physically active is mentally fit, and is able to focus his thoughts on the work at hand. Additionally, recreational programs teach discipline, mechanics of teamwork and fair play. These are important lessons in the growing process.
