@inkee...at 3 yo, maganda i socialize mo muna anak mo like kindermusik or gymboree.  It's a parent and child thing.  They sing and dance and may storytelling wala pang academic.

Pag okay na siya then prepare mo na siya for school like reading, math & writing.  May preschool na aside from academic subject may extra curriculum like singing, dancing, art, etc.

@mworx i enrolled my baby sa toddler class kasi sabi more on socialization raw ang focus nila sa mga bata.
I found out later on that 3 kids lang ang naka enroll to the said class. They were then combined sa nursery class.
Nursery class and toddler class has the same books. same activities which includes heavy writing and reading.
They were even required to buy notebooks as well. na wonder ako if ganito rin ba sa ibang school na nag ooffer ng toddler class/casa/pre-nursery...

Kaya ko pinasok yun anak ko for her social development. Also to learn the basics like counting, letters, colors and shapes. Singing and dancing as well with arts ok rin.

Hi sis inkee, ako inenroll ko anak ko sa Toddler Class, approach nila eh Progressive Education. 2 months siya dun last summer, during that time sis 2YO anak ko. Core reason ko, para madevelop speech niya kasi may Speech Delay siya that time. Pero nag improved talaga siya, ito sis ang schedule nila sis, para may idea ka din sis. free Play, Circle Time, Arts & Music, Storytelling, Snacks, Movie Time which is once a week only.

Super toddler friendly talaga, kaso not budget friendly ang tuition fee nila kapag buong school year na :(

Tapos sis, ito yung mga nagawa nila. Car wash, Swimming, How to make Spaghetti. Meron din silang writing pero simple lang. Yung tot ko name Sophia, so naka focus yung writing nila sa name niya. So natapos ang 2 months til now alam niya eh S-O hehe, no pressure naman.

Pero ganun na pala ngayon, nag iisip tuloy ako Kung papasok na siya kapag 3YO na siya, hmmmmm.

sharing mga sis, yun eldest ko nag start nag school when she was 3, nag nursery class sa daycare, more on socialization, kung hindi siya mag participate sa activity eh ok lang naman, at times hindi rin nagsusulat, pero nung malapit na yun school end eh nakakasulat na, kahit hindi pa sakto sa mga lines. then nung 4 yrs old na, nilipat ko ng school as senior kinder, ayun mukhang ok yun program kasi nakabasa na ng 3 letter word, and nakakasulat na in cursive, now 5 na siya as preparatory, mas nag improve na Reading skills niya and mas malinis na ang sulat in cursive, next year may grade schooler na ako :) :) :)

I initially planned to enrol our daughter in school when she reached 4 kaso lang medyo napaaga. We let her start school as early as 2.5yrs since delayed speech sya. It was a good decision naman since malaki yung naging improvement niya. Plus natuto makipagsocialize and share her things to others.

as a mom and a practitioner in the field of psychology, i am standing by the belief that my son may enter schooling by 5... noong una, praning ako, thinking that my son is late from the others... pero i consulted a colleague. well, right in my face, he told me, "you can be the best teacher your son can have"

because more of the essential learning and life lessons that he needs to know can be experienced by my son right at home - i just need to make use of all the opportunities at hand for his learning.

career development starts right in the home
communication skills, relational skills
creativity, resourcefulness, cooperation and empathy...etc.

cognitive concepts, maituturo ko din sa kanya in a fun way... i just need to make good use of the materials at hand

i work the whole day, but i make sure that when i get home,
i get to give him the time that he needs to learn through experience and observation of what i do
we enjoy and at the same time learn...
and the best way to bond as parents is to share time with our kids...

they learn concepts, as well as values and morals...  ;)

i quit working and became a WHAM when my kid at around 2 years old, we did homeschooling basic concepts lang, iba kasi pag mommy nag turo. however since there were no other kids sa bahay, i bring her to gymboree 1-2 times a week for play, we also did a lot of mini field trips, from theme parks, zoos and even weekend market.  for kids with siblings okay lang siguro na older na mag start ng school since may kalaro naman, it's really a case to case basis, depende sa set up ng parents,  the parents are the best judge kung kailangan ba talaga ni baby or hindi.

Mga mommies, ibang na ang curriculum ngayon dahil sa K+12.  Level entry  will depend on the age of the child.  Like sa case ng daughter ko, suppose to be ipapasok ko na siya sa STC next year kasi mag 5yo na siya kaya lang hindi pa siya pwede kasi kelangan nag nursery siya.  So I was thinking, pina nursery ko siya ngayon, next year Kinder siya so pag pinasok ko siya sa STC at the age of 6, Grade 1 na dapat siya which I don't think ready  na siya.

My advise is that at age 3, dapat mag pre-nursery na sila para pag 5 na sila, pwede na sila sa big school (Kinder Level).  More comments please.

wow as early as 2 : ) i have 3 kids, we started sending them to school at the age of 4-to-5. Perhaps it depends on the case, my wife is a full-time housemaker so i suppose we can afford to fill the 2 years gap. I remember buying a lot of study materials such as flashcards, whiteboards, etc. In our youngest, we experimented by enrolling him in a taekwondo class instead of kinder. Thankfully he passed to become prep and until now he still practice taekwondo - it paid-off.

i think  kid/s can go to school

...as late as possible if one of the parents is in a stay at home arrangement

...as early as possible if both parents work, the family can afford it at para na rin to increase interactiion with more and more kids

Hi mommies, there's a new preschool along Katipunan Ave. (near Banapple - southbound). The name is EXPRESSIVE MINDS You might want to see their facebook page -- http://www.facebook.com/expressive.minds -- They have a very hands-on curriculum and small student-teacher ratio. They accept Toddlers aged 1.5yrs.
