AFTER ONE MONTH OF SCHOOLING

How is your little one surviving in preschool?

Mine is having a splashing good time! Of course, there are still separation anxiety issues and the occasional “fights” with classmates, but other than those, my little one is settling well in school!

On bad days, he would burst into tears when I drop him off at school but would settle down very quickly. His teacher has some tricks under her sleeves and will have him settled in a minute or two. Thumbs up!

On good days…

The picture tells it all! He loves school and enjoys being with his teachers and friends.

He’s not very keen in having breakfast in school but I can’t blame him. We always make sure he eats his egg and drinks his milk at home before heading out. It’s nice if he digs in but if he doesn’t, I’m not worried.

Learning Vision

Sing-along-session is probably his favourite now! He enjoys rocking and swaying with the rhythm, and learn the words so he can sing along!

Learning Vision

I can’t say for sure if he is musically inclined but he loves playing with musical instruments. Any musical instruments! I guess, he’s curious what sound they make.

And it’s nice that the teachers give them lots of opportunities to play with different instruments in school. Although it might appear to be nothing more than singing, dancing and strumming on random instruments, such “circle time” is the real meat and potatoes of the day. They help in developing coordination and social skills, and aids in general brain development!

Learning Vision

Simple activity like tossing the balloons brought them so much fun! The kids were roaring with laughters! And his teachers took the opportunity to teach them colours and learn to share. They also get to practice on their gross motor skills as they run and hop about the play area.

During water break, it’s fun to see how these little ones gather to socialise and create small talks. There are some really funny and interesting dialogue between these novice socialisers! They seemed to understand each others’ conversation, no?

Learning Vision

Play time needs no guidance. They are all natural “players”.

Learning Vision

They just know how toys work. Even if they don’t, they will figure it out on their own.

I’m not surprise that Arnold can feed himself at school because he has always been an independent kid, wanting to do everything on his own. In fact, even before he started schooling, he was self feeding! But I really like how the teachers encourage the kids and praise them when they did a good job! They motivate Arnold and guide him to hold his utensils properly. There was lots of positive vibe and all the kids were happy in school! That’s the exact reason why I put my kids at Learning Vision.

Learning Vision

For some reason, Arnold is always hungry! He’s always first in queue when it comes to food or milk -_-

Learning Vision

And boy, I need to start teaching him not to be a fussy eater! He’s beginning to pick on his food!

Learning Vision

School is just so much fun! The teachers are patient, caring, thoughtful, genuine, passionate, and have so much love to give! Being a preschool teacher isn’t as easy as what most think! The job is filled with challenges, different from the ones most face at work! I’m inspired, they are inspiring.

Learning Vision

Thank you, teachers! It is one of the hardest jobs you can have but definitely rewarding. The world needs people like you in order to keep going. It’s often exhausting and frustrating. You learn to take a breath before you respond to almost anything. Easier said than done sometimes, though, I know.

But enjoy this time, because they will soon learn the world will chip away at their imagination. These tiny beings are very special – they are people before the bitterness and inhibitions of adulthood sink in. We can learn a lot from them. Be mindful and listen to what they are saying.
