Shichida, Heguru and Glenn Doman

Anyone sent their kids for any of the above courses?

If u did, do u feel that it works?

If u choose not to, is it because u researched on it and don't think it works?

Thinking whether I should send my kid for any of the courses

My girl has been attending henguru since 1+, now 4 yo but i think is still early to tell if it works.

Initally, I tired shichida which focus more on motor skills. Changed teacher twice, no good, then I left. Henguru focus more on problem solving and creativity. Most important, you must have a good tutor as she will progress together with your child. After sending your kids there, you need to do homework and practice at home (e.g. dot bar (maths)).

How do u determine if it works? I thought 2+ years already should see some sort of improvement in some areas?

Children at this age (<4 years old) is all about play and play. They still don't know what is homework (addition, flash cards.. etc). Most just follow the parents to class and go with the flow. Although early exposure may give them a head start in Kinder or Primary level. This is also where you'll find out their interest (like mine likes colouring) and their strength and weakness.

I'm thinking of sending my 2 year old to heguru but a bit sian of having to be there for the full 50mins. In the meantime I spend 15mins for each kid on Chinese, and my wife another 15mins on English everyday. Hoping it will help somewhat..

Nephew attended heguru since 2-3

Stop after 12-18 maths

Heard that he reads many books per night

Maybe they teach speeding?

Watch YouTube videos and surely will see them showing children turning book pages very quickly

Nephew now k2, so far so good, everything like quite normal

He had younger brother, parents not sending 2nd son to heguru

Now both do normal activities eg drawjng and music

Actually don't expect your kids to be a genius after attending all these enrichment class. It very much depends on your kid's learning ability. Most kids at age 2+ still can't comprehend instructions thus you have to attend the class with him. At the end of every H's session, there are 2 tasks you'll need to do with your kids at home. If are still clueless on how you can teach your kids at home, you may purchase the worksheets (homework).
