My daughter is 3 yo and I dont have plans of enrolling her soon.

Naalala ko yung classmate ko from college nun naka chat ko recently, in-ask niya ako kung nagaaral na daw baby ko, I said not yet, sabi niya sakin, nagaaral na daw baby niya - exclusive school to be exact (which maka same age lang sila) she said bakit daw e same age lang din sila....

I just said, masyado pang maaga...

IMHO, mga sis wala pa talaga ako plan i-enrol sa school si baby. Next year pa talaga, I dont feel bad at all pero di ba masyado pa maaga yun and I know naman na gugustuhin ng anak ko pumasok kasi madami sya mas makakalaro sa school pero For me lang naman mga sis too early for her.

In my opinion lang siguro it depends on the kid talaga and the lifestyle. If he/she is ready na by age 21/2 pwede na siya sa toddler class. At age 3 kasi boredom starts to kick in with these kids, other parents may notice that the home is not sufficient for the growing needs of the child. Others naman they know na hindi pa ready ang anak nila pumasok kaya pag pinilit nagkakaroon lang ng separation anxiety. On the positive side children exposed early  in school naman tend to be more independent and socially oriented. Parents who work barely see their child na mga yaya lang ang nagbabantay better daw na sa school nalang sila magspend ng oras kesa kay kay yaya na text and tv lang ang alam.

My son started school when he was 3 1/2. And he did pretty good on his first school year. Pero before that we took classes at gymboree for exposure na din to other kids since he's an only child. Depende talaga sa case ng bata imo :) Hope this helps :)

my vote is 4yo. too young pa yata yung 2&3yo. at that age, baka ipasok ko lang si baby sa day care center in preparation for nursery.

For me walang right age. Kasi it really depends on the child. Kasi merong mga bata na maaga nagmamature or nagdedevelop. Others naman 4 year old na baby na baby pa din. It really depends on the child. The parent would know if he or she is ready.

It depends on what teaching philosophy you believe in (progressive, etc), your budget, your child's readiness and others. My eldest will turn 5 this October, sa June pa lang siya papasok as Kinder. We were already teaching him the basics, though. Just remember na di por que maaga ipinasok ang bata sa school eh guaranteed na well-rounded na ang development niya, at di rin dahil late eh may kulang.

maggie Naku nagka-separation anxiety na si baby mo. Ganyan din kay daughter namin eh, yung second. Ieenroll na rin sana namin kaya lang ayaw magpaiwan kaya next year na lang. Si kuya niya ang excited, iniiwanan nga kami ni daddy nila.  :)

I honestly don't feel that they're too young to go to school especially since they'll be playing in the beginning. Well playing and learning :D

It depends on you, if you're a stay at home mom but still want your kids to interact with others, enroll him or her. If you're a working mom naman and you'd rather na kahit 2 hours in a day di puro yaya kasama nung anak mo, enroll mo din.

No one is EVER too young to play and learn :D

i enrolled my child in Gymboree when she turned 1. I enrolled her early into playclass just to build her socialize skills with other people. My hubby and I noticed that she doesn't mingle well with other kids. After her two months class in Gymboree, we noticed a lot of changes in her. She communicates and mingle well already. She no longer cries whenever people greet her or anything. That's why we decided to enroll her again this coming June for another class in Gymboree but this time for 18 months to 24 months class.

My mom encouraged me to enroll my daughter at the age of 3 kasi mga pamangkin ko ganun palang nag arala na pero sa daycare lang malapit samin pero mahal pa rin ang bayad..hehe..tapos ayun di nga lang sya pwedeng iwanan mag isa kaya ang ending sinasamahan sya ng mom ko sa loob ng room then nung mag eend nalang ng school year saka nalang sya pumayag na magpaiwan pero yun nga nadevelop talaga sya, naging sociable ng konti and syempre mga basic..then after nun before syang mag 4 eh pina assess namin sya sa private school for kinder and nakapasa naman sya.. i guess you really need to check also your child para malaman mo kung ready na sya for school..mahirap din kasi yung pinipilit agad..

hi mommies  :) share ko lang. i just enrolled my daughter this morning, she's 2 years and 3 months old but she's very advanced compared to most kids her age sa village namin. i enrolled her to this daycare/play school near our village. i personally spoke with the school administrator and she said meron nga daw nag enroll sa kanila kaka 2 palang daw  :D sobrang advanced daw kasi, alam na yung months of the year and alphabets.

my friend naman, she sent her son at the age of 2. dun na natuto yng bata mag potty training, mag brush ng teeth mag isa, etc. kaya na encourage din niya ko to enroll my sofia ng ganito ka aga. nakikita ko din naman kasi na she's very much excited to go to school especially kanina when she saw ang daming books!

cheers!  :)

My son started nursery 1 when he was 2. He is turning 4 next week and will be in Kinder 1 this June. His interest in school has not waned. Sobra parin syang excited to go to school. Lagi niya ako tinatanong if open na yung school niya.  :D

Sa panganay ko kasi na girl, mas nakita ko ang hilig niya sa pag drawing at pag aral at age 3 but its too early for her, iyakin pa kasi that time. Noong 4 years old siya, talagang gusto na niya mag schooling kaso lumipat naman kami ng house kaya hindi ko na enroll agad. But now, at 5 years old, kinder na siya agad, hindi na kailangan mag nursary. Pina summer class ko lang para hindi siya mabigla pag dating nitong pasukan. And she really enjoys it.

But now, my 4 year old son is not yet ready.Iiwan ko lang siya sa bahay ng kapatid ko, iiyak na, Hindi pa siya talaga ready kaya mas maganda kung ready na kids natin bago natin sila papasukin sa school. And we are the ones to help them prepare for that. Mismo tayong mga mommies ang maghahanda at magtitimpla sa kanila eh, kasi we can't force them to stay lalo na for 2-3 hours everyday.

Kaya sa son ko, papasummer class ko rin. Para ma familiar siya sa school activities. And now, naiiwan ko na siya sa bahay ng friend ko or kamag anak then I just praise him for being very good at other people's place. 

Sa bahay, I thought them how to read and write na, emotionally hindi pa sila ready, kaya ayaw ko rin matrauma.

Just assure your kids that its ok to stay with teachers and classmates when he/she is at school. Reward them for being brave with simple gift and lots of hugs. Sa una lang naman pero kung alam na nila ang mangyayari, mas enjoy na sila, sila pang excited going to school!

Hi SP Moms! My son started going to school at 2.5 years old. His class was just 3 hours a day. And I think it really helped him a lot. My husband and I thought that it was better for him to spend at least 3 hours a day doing something productive than just watch TV with the yaya all day. After all, there was no reassurance that the yaya lets him watch Disney channel only.

It depends on the kid if he or she can  handle the separation from the parents para walang hassle sa pagpasok then kung interesado talaga ang mga kids natin sa school why not  diba! but we also considering the place and budget kaya mas maganda nakaprepare din tayo if magstart na magschool mga anak natin. My eldest started when she was 2 1/2 yrs old kasi di pa sya masyadong nagsasalita that time kaya we decided to put her in a school ayun after 2 weeks madaldal na sya....now with my youngest, he started with a play school then last month nagstart with the regular school, nursery2  na sya preparing this june,last week start na uli sila...and good thing marami na agad syang improvements after his class last may!
