my second son is four years old and first time to go to school on friday. before pag minemention namin na papasok na siya sa school ayaw niya talaga, nagagalit siya, sa bahay lang daw siya to play. pero need na kasi talaga niya mag aral kasi dun nga sa school where we enrolled him ilalagay na siya sa K1 kasi 4 years old na. 2 years old daw jr. nursery, 3 yrs old sa sr. nursery, then 4 yrs old for K1 and 5 yrs old for K2. Kasi nga 6 yrs old dapat grade 1. Pero sabi ko ayokong maghabol o mahuli sa lessons ang anak ko kaya nag insist kami to put him sa Sr Nursery muna. Same nung eldest ko na at 4 years old nag start siya as Sr. Nursery, then K1 nung 5 yrs old. Di ko na niya dinaanan ang K2. I feel na tama na ang 2 yrs as pre school. Luckily, pumasa naman siya at mataas pa nga ang entrance exam for Grade 1.

Back to my second son, sinama siya ng husband ko to buy and choose his things like school bags, etc. Then we got his books na din from the school. Ngayon excited na siyang pumasok sa Friday. Sabi ko di ako papasok sa office kasi babantayan ko siya sa school. Tapos nagbabasa basa na din kami ng books niya. Sana mag enjoy nga sa school.

today is the first day of nursery classes of our 3 and 7 months-old daughter. in my assessment, she is ready for her school, which has a progressive philosophy and developmentally-appropriate activities.

though some schools say they are "progressive" or "montessori", the "traditional mode" is more pronounced in the type of activities they have, in accordance with their curriculum: nursery level with textbooks, quizzes and homework!

there is an emerging issue that cropped up during our "school-hunting" - the effect of the k-12 curriculum: most pre-schools have yet to comply and some are transitioning into compliance, either lowering the age requirements or changing curriculum.

next year, it appears that schools will accept kinder at age 5 (or even earlier if a child had at least a year of pre-school depending on the school) and grade 1 at 6 years old.

our kids will surely be affected, specially since it appears that deped itself has not provided clear guidelines on how to implement the k-12 program.

@henrysmom
same here henrysmom, my kid is turning 2 this year and im already looking for a school where she can attend next year. You are right also na even she is watching english cartoons mas madalas pa rin niya kausap si yaya so we decided to send her to school early. As much as possible, I try to teach her during weekends kaso feeling kulang yun compared sa five days na kasama niya si yaya.

Pinasok namin ang twins namin ng 2.5 years old.  Kahit na maaga sila nag-aral agad, magana pa rin sila, thank God!  They're now 6 years old at Kinder level (Miriam College) and at Prep level (Ateneo) and they're still very eager to learn, play and pray.

By the way, if you know someone with pre-schooler/s who lives in QC area near Mayon, Banawe and Retiro Streets or Del Monte Avenue, please try asking for Young Minds Learning Center with telephones 781-9975, 514-6457 or 0922-869-2563 located at 86 Scout Alcaraz Street, Sta. Mesa Heights QC (near Banawe St & Retiro St), operating since 2004 with spacious rooms, play areas and facilties housed in a 500 sqm floor area (with comfort rooms inside classrooms) and especially with loving and caring, well-experienced and very capable Teachers.  God bless us Moms and our kids!

Sabi ko noon 4YO ko na ipapasok yung anak ko ng buong school year, 2YO and 3 MOS na yung anak ko ngayon pero mukhang ipapasok ko na siya next AY 2013-2014 so by June next year she'll be 3YO and 2MOS, buti nakahanap ako ng Progressive school na malapit sa amin 1 hour and 30 mins lang everyday and affordable :) Medyo bored na kasi anak ko sa house ngayon palang, better nadin kesa Yaya lang ang kasama everyday or nanonood lang ng DVD.

Kapag 4YO naman siya big school na (big TF din), 2 hours and 30 minutes everyday.

My daughter started to attend Toddler Class at exactly 2yo. She is still a bit defiant. She doesn't want to follow the teacher's instructions. Hehe. We decided to enroll her so she will have improvements on her social skills. Her classes are only 3x a week. Next year, I hope to enroll her to a regular daily class. She'll be 3 by then.

ok sakin na kahit 2 yrs old pa, mgschool na as long as yung "play" school muna. i prefer a school with a progressive approach (yung learning by doing ang educational philosophy)... important din na strong yung parent-home relationship para i can easily consult the teacher...

Subscribing,

for me it depends on the parents padin siguro kung kailan nila gustong ipasok sa school world mga kiddos nila.. pero sa tingin nio mga sissies, tama ba at 18 mos eh i-enroll na sa gymboree?? just to hone her social skills..

hayy ang anak ko 4 years old now, first time kong ipasok sa nursery. i think he's having a hard time adjusting. 2 months na since pasukan and around 2 weeks pa lang ata siya pumapasok. Nagkasakit kasi so nag absent siya for more than a week. That's the time na nag aadjust pa lang siya sa classroom. Nung gumaling, ayaw na talagang pumasok. Nag tatantrums pag time to go to school na hindi na namin mapilit. The other day pumayag din pero dapat nasa loob daw ang daddy niya. Same yesterday. Today ayaw na naman niyang pumasok. Saka ayaw niyang magparticipate sa class. Though nag eenjoy naman siya pag nag aaral kami at home, siya pa nga nagyayaya to study his books. Pag sa classroom, sapilitan, at ayaw magpaiwan sa loob gusto andun lagi ang bantay niya. Di ko na alam ano gagawin. Second option ko pag talagang hindi nakapag adjust at ayaw pumasok, i-kumon na lang muna. Kaya lang worried ako na baka naman mahuli na siya kasi sa ngayon ata at 6 years old dapat grade 1. And yung ibang private schools they require na at least 2 years sa pre school before mag grade 1.

My daughter WAS, and I say it in past tense because I withdrew her from the program, enrolled in a community day care center since June 'til early August. About 2nd week of July, we tried out the Galileo program for her as well. The day care session lasts for about 1.5 hours while the Galileo session lasts for an hour. Since public day care center sya, there were about 25 students - and they were in a small classroom lang. As in, small lang talaga. I really just wanted to try out the classroom environment for my little girl (without the need to spend too much), kasi naging successful yung summer schooling niya... Unfortunately, the environment at the day care center wasn't the best fit for her. Too many students cramped in a small space, hindi niya masyado gusto. And well, I personally didn't like the way the teacher handled the class. :( Saka ayaw talaga pumasok ni baby pag doon papunta. As in nandun na kami, ayaw pa niya pumasok. In contrast, she super enjoys naman her Galileo sessions. Twice a week lang sya, pero ang dami na niya natutunan in 6 sessions pa lang. And talagang very enthusiastic sya. So we decided na stop na lang muna sya sa daycare and continue with Galileo - we don't want her traumatized by the idea of schooling.

I couldn't say naman na she's not ready for the classroom environment, kasi during her summer session naman, we never had a problem at all, from going to school, leaving her there, classmate interaction, etc. She's also a fast learner and takes instructions easily. Yung environment lang din siguro ang hindi naging good for her sa daycare.

Next year she'll be four na by start of the school year, and since continue naman sya with Galileo, and summer school ulit next year, I'm pretty sure na she'll be much better adjusted na. We already found an awesome progressive school for her, pero we're also looking into a traditional school. We'll see next year. :)

So I think, as far as readiness of the child is concerned and how early to start schooling... you have to really let the child try it out for you to find out. :) But one thing's for sure, any younger than three may not be ideal for a CLASSROOM-environment type of school/sessions. Even at three touch and go pa din depende sa bata at sa kind of school na papasukan niya. :)

If you discover na di pa talaga ready, well, let our kids be kids muna. They won't be like that forever. :)

^Sis, saan kayo nagtry ng Galileo program? We plan to have our daughter start with school next year pag 3 years and 6 months na siya. So far, medyo shy pa siya around strangers. Wala namang play school in Cavite.
