While many parents procrastinate in different areas of their lives, school enrolment is usually something many parents in PJ take seriously which is why many are already starting to look to enroll their child in a school in PJ for 2018.  If you believe you have more than enough time to look in a week or two, or a month… beware!  This is what catches parents off guard, and the next thing you know the school year has started!

One of the issues I have faced as a parent is believing, or rather deluding myself, that I have enough time – this was especially true during my child’s first day of school.  I have always believed I had enough time to get my daughter geared up for the new school year, I had enough time to enrol her, I had enough time to buy her back-to-school supplies, clothes and so on.  The issue is, I am still procrastinating!  I find myself thinking I have enough time to think about her college education, I have enough time for birthday shopping and it always ends up in a last-minute rush to get everything done!  And if you are anything like me, then NOW is as good a time as any to get your child geared up for the 2018 school year.  And checking out preschools. Nurseries, playschools and kindergartens in PJ should start now!   In fact, if you and your spouse are working long hours, you may want a facility which also offers full day daycare with extended hours… I proudly introduce Little Human Scholars to you!

Little Human Scholars Kindergarten, Playschool, Preschool and Full Day Daycare Centre

Little Human Scholars is a kindergarten near Jaya One in PJ that boasts a nursery, a playschool, a preschool/kindergarten, and full day daycare for children with extended hours.  It is a play-based school that encourages whole-brain thinking, creative problem solving, social/emotional development skills, physical fitness and more.

Play-based learning is crucial for children.  In 1964, Marion Diamond and her colleagues published an exciting paper about brain growth in rats. The neuroscientists had conducted a landmark experiment, raising some rats in boring, solitary confinement and others in exciting, toy-filled colonies.

When researchers examined the rats’ brains, they discovered that the “enriched” rats had thicker cerebral cortices than did the “impoverished” rats (Diamond et al 1964).  Subsequent research confirmed the results—rats raised stimulating environments had bigger brains.

They were smarter, too–able to find their way through mazes more quickly (Greenough and Black 1992).  – See more at: http://www.parentingscience.com/benefits-of-play.html#sthash.UvhAUzz0.dpuf

Coming back to Little Human Scholars being a play-based school, here is why play-based learning is important for young minds:

1)     It is fun…and what is fun is interesting’

2)     It involves their whole-brain… not just the left or right side;

3)     It helps children develop holistically in all ways – not just mental and physical, but social-emotional as well.

Another great thing about play-based learning is your children will have a positive perspective on school and will be more open to primary school when it is time for them to move on from kindergarten.  This is why it is important to get your child enroled for the 2018 school year now – you would have secured their next year in a fun-filled exciting environment which stimulates whole brain learning!

In short, there is something magical that happens when your child is given time every hour or so to play unrestricted and not under the duress of a teacher who is trying to get them to learn something.  These little breaks support your child in having a better attention span and enjoying school.  Not to mention, it also supports them in retaining more information during class time.  In short, giving your child 10-20 minute breaks every 50 minutes or so does wonders for their brain development, and this is something Little Human Scholars preschool and kindergarten in PJ prides itself on.
