My son, Athen age 5 was enrolled to Active Mind Child Development Centre (AMCDC) in Jan 2011 after spending a year in a renowned franchised kindergarten that failed to identity the cause of his dislike for writing.
His disorder was diagnosed as weakness in his fine motor skills. Intervention programme was subsequently introduced to overcome this with results seen within a short period of three months.
Today Athen is a happy 5 years old pre-schooler who longs to attend school every morning. AMCDC’s emphasis on holistic education had certainly transformed my son into a disciplined and outgoing child.
My advice to parents is “brand and size need not always associate with quality”. It is important to identify a preschool that has the passion to develop young children and has the rebound therapy and occupational therapy experience to introduce timely intervention for learning disorders which are common among many school going children.
I believe that Active Mind Child Development Centre has these qualities to develop your child in his /her formative years.
