So is it a problem if your child cannot read and speak by age 5. Most kids arriving at Primary school should have some basic knowledge of reading and speaking. Usually in Primary schools the class enrollment is at least 25 students. So the student teacher ratio is pretty wide as compared to preschool and nursery.
Preschool and Nursery teachers are trained to manage young toddlers and expose them to the love of learning with lots of patience. Also lots of nurseries pay attention to developing motor skills and having lots of fun. Teaching them the joy of class mates. There is no pressure to hit targets. Unlike in Primary schools where the curriculum is very inflexible and demanding.
There is very little attention that a child will receive in Primary to aid them in their reading as the curriculum is pretty inflexible and demanding. Learning to read especially for children if not their native language can be rather daunting. So building a bag full of key words is very important to kids in nursery. Its more easier for kids if the environment is English speaking. With the usual exposure to common key words on a repetitive basis can be rather helpful. This will aid in their learning of the english language.
Singapore Genius Nursery has a Genius Phonics program that children are able to find it handy when learning english. Seriously it just impossible to know all words, but with a strong Genius Phonics tool we have will atleast allow the kids to pronounce the words quite accurately. Some of these words are words that they have been exposed to on a daily basis. Here at Singapore Genius Nursery, each child is treated as an individual with their learning based on their level. There are homework books where the child always has something for him to do during his spare time. There are no completion dates. They will add more to their pleasure of doing homework as its treated as fun time. Enroll with Singapore Genius Nursery to see how we can make a difference to your child.
