i'm back in this thread. our daughter can speak english and tagalog words now. she just turned 2  last month. she's starting to mimic the adults now so i told my husband that we should enroll her in a playschool in a few months. i'm interested in little archers in MOA. they have weekly sessions eh. naghahanap lang ako ng feedback. another option is gymboree in alabang. sabik yung anak namin sa ibang kids. nag-eenjoy siya pag nakakita ng ibang bata. kinakalabit niya para maglaro sila.

My daughter will start her schooling this June 2012 at age of four and a half years old. But then when she was three years old nag-start na akong turuan sya like coloring, reading of letters, counting, and writing. This time she can write her full name, write letters(small and capital), count objects, identify colors, proper coloring, and reading (Alpabetong Filipino-a,e,i,o,u,ba,be,bi,bo, and bu). She can also answer activity books such as encircle objects that shaped like a triangle and color it yellow (pero syempre ako yung mag-explain or translate into Filipino ng instruction)... hehe!

She is excited to go to school. Madalas pa nga before we sleep at night, she will get a book and insist to read na or kaya mag-teacher-teacheran daw kami na to the point mag-raise sya ng hands to answer question. Hehe! Mas nakakatuwa na sa anak ko mismo nanggagaling yung excitement at eagerness to learn and to go to school. :)

God bless sa mga kids natin na papasok na... :)

Hi Mommies!

My husband and I decided to homeschool our children at least for their preschool years.We started when our daughter was 2 years old. She is now 4 and we have a one year old baby boy. 

We believe that we are our children's first and best teacher and we provide them with a learning environment that promotes wonder and imagination. We read A LOT, pretend A LOT, and generally shun TV and other electronic devices such as the iPad. We aim to give our children a childhood that is a bit old-fashioned. That for us, is the best education that we can give them in their younger years.

I write about the fun times we have at my blog The Learning Basket. Come visit and maybe we can share ideas with each other.

Make magic!

hi mga mommies,
need advise naman.. my little boy just turns three this january and he's attending a toddler class.. i was thinking that he'll be in nursery na but according to his teacher, sa toddler pa daw sya because of his age.. so i got frustrated kasi honestly, love his school already kaya lang para naman unfair kasi he'll be left behind by his classmates though he's the youngest pero yung classmate niya na ng 3 nung december, nursery na..
so i tried inquiring some school, as in schools.. hehe.. he'll be in nursery na daw.. most of the school i've inquired were big school na.. so i was torn between letting him stay sa present school niya or look for a new one.. sayang kasi sa money and time.. my little boy was assessed naman that he's fit sa nursery on other schools..
help naman mga momsies..
thanks..

Hi fellow mommy, Elsa. Essentially, it is really up to you, i mean what your mommy instinct is telling you. Sometimes kasi though we may be able to save money, kung we aren't satisfied of the services of a school parang baliwala din yung na save natin. Baka lang kasi a school might appear to make you save financially pero in the long run, di naman niya ma-enhance/develop yung abilities of your child, lugi ka pa rin. Or might be talagang di pa suited yung child mo for nursery class. Syempre iba-iba kasi ang needs ng children according to their age and development.

Although I think there was an article here in Smart Parenting about everything on school education for play school, nursery, kinder, etc. It may help you weigh your options. Perhaps you can also check on the internet (research) on what you child's current development stage is, then compare it to what level of education is best fit for him/her.You may ask questions to schools yours considering too. You have all the right naman to inquire, don't worry. Para din you'll know what the required abilities or knowledge level for a certain education level, and what the "course syllabus" can offer to a child.

I kinda understand your situation. Last year my 2nd child was 4 yrs old, for the SY 2011-2012, we were considering 2 schools for him. School A was willing to admit him as kindergarten student already so long as he takes the summer prep class. School B wouldn't admit him as kinder yet but as nursery student for the same school year. School B didn't have summer classes. So, what we did was, we tried school A, and had our kid take the summer class but didn't hastily enroll him yet kasi we wanted to evaluate the school (services, teaching, structure, etc). After the summer class and much thinking later..we decided to enroll him to school B.Even if he was admitted as nursery student, it was ok with us, despite the chance of being able to save fees for 1 school year...

Good luck and God bless.[/size][/color][/color][/size][/font]

thanks momsie..
plan to look for some schools and see how will they assessed my little boy.. crossing my fingers that i'll find school na same ng present school niya or it will surpassed his present school.. hehe.. i was thinking naman kasi baka my little boy will be the oldest pg ng grade 1 naman sya...:(
planning to have that talk with his present school and hope they could convince me to let my little boy stays with them..:).. iniisip ko din kasi magiging reaction ni anakis ko when he saw his previous friends/classmates sa ibang classroom.. besides di naman kasi biro yung tuition fee with his present school.. they say about di pa daw mature si anakis ko but i was thinking during their class presentation, it was my little boy who stays in the center kasi sya lang ng peperform while others were crying and don't know what to do.. hay i guess need that talk with his teacher pa naman kasi haven't talk with them yet. i've asked his teacher informally pa lang naman..
update kita sis whatever we decides..
thanks ha..:)

hi mga sis..
share ko din my baby's school year..:)
he started play class at Gymboree at the age of 1 and half yrs old sya then let him try the montessori way during summer when he's 2 and he adjusted well naman kaya enrolled him on the toddler's class. now that he's 3 according sa school niya. toddler pa din daw sya kasi he's too young pa daw.. so i've asked some big schools na and assessed him. puwede na daw sya sa nursery class still in montessori way of teaching.. i was thinking now if i'll enrolled him in another school for nursery or stays with his present school na toddler for the 2nd year.. nanghihinayang naman kasi financially and effort and time.
honestly i preferred the montessori kasi it doesn't pressure your kids with the traditional learning but i'm still thinking on what to do pa din.. but reading your posts help me decides..:)

my daughter's turning three na sa may and we decided to enroll her na for summer classes this april. this way we can get her accustomed na to the classroom environment, and to the idea na she needs to go to school everyday. :) at the same time, ito rin yung paraan namin para ma-gauge namin kung ready na sya for regular, full-time schooling pagdating ng June, kasi marami na din schools na tumatanggap ng pre-schooler at 3 years old.

in my opinion, ang earliest siguro na dapat mag-'school' ang bata, as in classroom environment ha, is about 3 to 31/2 years old. Pero siempre depende pa din sa readiness ng kids, at sa kind ng school na gusto nyong pasukan niya, kung ang teaching method ba ay traditional, progressive, or montessori. I noticed kasi na most schools na talagang traditional ang method, karamihan hindi tumatanggap ng masyadong bata for nursery (no less than 3.5 or 3 years old kadalasan).

kung tipong playschool lang talaga, as in ang goal mo lang is for the kid to learn how to socialize, how to be more independent etc., I guess ok na magstart at around 1.5 years old. :-)

Ang importante lang I guess is wag kang mapressure to put your kid into any kind of school just because may mga bata around your child na same age ng iyo at nasa isang school na, especially for the kind of schooling na classroom environment na, kasi doon, ang goal na talaga ng bata is to learn the basics of academics at hindi lang basta socialization.  :) meron kasi talagang certain age ang bata na mas na-aabsorb ng mind nila yung ganung kind of learning. :)

kaya ngayon I'm actually eyeing schools na either montessori or progressive ang teaching method dahil individualized ang instruction. mas mababa ang teacher-student ratio, at hindi masyadong 'stressful' sa bata (especially mga aged 3,4,5) ang enforcement ng learning. :)
