Helping your child read like a champ isn’t as difficult or time-consuming as many people believe.  Most parents want the best for their children, and several of them want to give their child a headstart in their schooling.  One of the fastest ways to get your child to read faster is to break down the information in a fun and edutaining kind of way!


Reading and phonics go hand-in-hand – how does a person expect to construct a building without laying the foundation first?  This is why many children learn the ABC song first, then learn to recognise the letters, then learn the sounds the letters make, the sounds the letter make when you group them together and so on.  The trick is presenting this information in such a way that it feels like “playing” instead of as informative.  As a child learns through play, they retain more of the information while retaining an interest in the subject.


At Little Human Scholars preschool, playschool, kindergarten, nursery and full-day daycare centre located in Petaling Jaya, near PJ Old Town, University Hospital, PJ New Town and Jaya 33, they use a UK based system called Jolly Phonics.


Jolly Phonics to Help Your Child Read Like a Champ!

Jolly Phonics is an incredible teaching system whereby children learn to do the following:


  1. recognise letters,
  2. then the sounds of the letters,
  3. then in blending combinations of the letters
  4. and so on until reading and comprehension is reached.


The cool thing about Jolly Phonics is that It is a multi-sensory form of education, whereby the children use visual, auditory and kinesthetic means to learn the alphabet and eventually, how to read.


In other words, it makes learning fun and interactive instead of boring and monotonous! There is literally a song, a dance and an action for each letter and sound.  This whole-brain learning supports children in retaining more information faster, comprehending this information more fully, and in being able to utilise it over and over again in the future when more complex lessons are taught.


Advantages of using Jolly Phonics

  • Systematic way of learning English as a language;
  • Effortless and Correct pronunciation;
  • Understanding relationship between sounds and letters;
  • Supports to improve your child’s vocabulary;
  • Making your child spell a word effortlessly;
  • Improvised performance in spelling competitions;
  • Improved comprehension skills.


We use Jolly Phonics at Little Human Scholars preschool, playschool, kindergarten, nursery and full day daycare centre in PJ to support children in learning the basics before learning to read.


In short, Jolly Phonics can be a fun and exciting experience for children and can help your child read like a champ!  And believe me, if a lesson is boring, the kids will find something else to focus on!  This is why jolly phonics works so well for our play-based school and has since we started in 2013.   When learning through play is fun, there is no end to the education process!


About Little Human Scholars School and Full Day Daycare Centre in PJ

Little Human Scholars is an all-in-one childcare solution.  It is a preschool, playschool, kindergarten, nursery and full day daycare centre (with extended hours) located in the heart of PJ.


In fact, the location is one of the things which makes Little Human Scholars so sought after – it is conveniently nestled near Jalan Gasing, University hospital, PJ Old town, PJ New town, Jaya One, Jaya33, and the PJ IT Mall.


The best part is LHS has premiere services many other schools in PJ don’t offer such as full-day daycare with extended hours, CCTV access for parents, and a nifty little phone app called Toddlytic which provides parents with automatic updates on their child’s development, behaviour and health checks.


With full-time guards always present at each of their locations, access to CCTV (which is in every room except the office, bathroom and kitchen areas), and very strict pick-up and drop-off rules, Little Human Scholars treats every child who walks into its hallways as one of their own children!


This place has it all:  location, safety, health, IGSCE curriculum and play-based learning.  What more could you ask for?  Did I mention they also have transportation services and offer meal plans for students?  It doesn’t get any better than that.


If you are interested in a tour of one of our centres (that’s right, there’s more than one), all you need to do is fill out the form here or call +6017-7303-025 and an LHS administrative staff will get back with you shortly!
