Making Learning Fun in Singapore
Learning is fun, but other children don’t see and feel it because some schools and some teachers don’t make it fun. Children have a short span of attention that is why teachers and schools have to adjust to that. If a class only does pure lectures and discussion, then the child would probably feel bored and start to make noise instead. They also wouldn’t be able to enjoy staying in school if that is the case. There are a lot of things that teachers could do in order to keep children entertained.
At Chengzhu Chinese kindergarten, children will learn Mandarin in an immersive environment that includes music, storytelling, art & craft and develop the confidence to use Mandarin in their daily lives. If you are keen for your child to master Mandarin you should visit their page.
If you hear the words ‘Chinese lesson’, what usually comes to mind is mere discussion and lectures. However, Hester will share to us a guide to Chinese classes, playgroups, and schools in Singapore.

Chinese Kindergarten – Review
Ricky Wadi, like any other four-year-old, loves running around. However the mere mention of school and Ricky stands still, breathing heavily. Asking him the reason for the sudden stillness and he replies “I can’t run and climb at school. I’m always in the classroom,” he mumbles with a downcast look.
Like Ricky, many children are stuck in a rigid system of learning daily, with minimal activity being displayed. As parents place higher expectations for their children to grow academically, the importance of play, and even exercise are lost.
However, not convinced that gyms and space to run around freely are facing a shortage in Singapore, TheAsianParent dug and unearthed one centre that has just about the most eye-catching gym equipment on the island! Read more here.
Chinese Kindergarten provided us with a different approach to learning. They believe that the importance of play and exercise should also be introduced in school that is why they have gym classes for physical development. It is true that academic success would be useless if you are physically unhealthy. We should always understand that a child is curious about the world that is why we should not limit them from the traditional lectures, instead we should indulge them in exploring the world.
