Sigh, nowadays the requirements are so high. They expect the kids to know how to read, write & count before P1.

My K2 kid still got problem reading. So bo bian have to send for enrichment classes (english and chinese).

I thought it wasn't needed until my child just went to primary school... every week get spelling and 听写, need to buy extra textbooks to prepare for his classes as he's expected to know how to read all the words, maths already beyond addition....

and it's only just his first month in school.... wtf...........

My family is the peranakan type that cannot speak or read mandarin well. Kids start chinese enrichment classes from 18 months. Home enviroment speaks english and the tv is in multiple languages except mandarin

Actually start k1 or what is good. Make the kid sit down and concentrate. Pri Schools gonna make them do it anyway and some kids culture shock or branded naughty by the teachers because they cannot sit down and adapt fast enough. So you start early they got more time to adapt. Your pockets must be infinitely deep tho for all the fees.

For those with young kids, spend 15 minutes a day during K1 and K2 reading bedtime stories together with the kids. By P1, they should be able to read by themselves simple books. If you are able to do this, keeping up in school should not be too difficult. The maths needs basic reading skills. Mother tongue is up to your own prioritisation.

If you missed that, you will need at least one hour every weekday for 3-6 months to supervise their homework. This is where parents due to panic or laziness, outsource the homework supervision to tuition. A lot depends on the student care centre, there are some more responsible ones that will actively supervise the homework.

The current situation is due to the marketing efforts of the American style experiential learning of the premium kindergartens, the extremely lax childcare centres which together had started to cut the enrolment rates at PAP community foundation kindergartens. To boost enrolment, individual PCF centres started modifying their curriculum to be more interactive and less tough. If you are looking for someone to blame, look in the mirror. It's because of previous parents voting with their wallets that led to this.

Why do you think MOE started kindergartens and sponsoring non PCF kindergartens. MOE used to just issue guidelines of learning outcomes. But because sinkies parents started to skew the incentives. MOE bobian have to step in to regulate. The problem should be eliminated in 3-6 years. If you want to ensure that your child is properly educated by play, enrol in the MOE kindergartens.
