Start Early: Child Programmes Make Kids Better Citizens

Early Childhood ProgrammeEarly childhood enrichment programs are good foundations of learning. The Ministry of Education (MOE) of Singapore believes that preschool education builds a strong start for children’s future learning. It is also an advocacy in other parts of the world, like in the UK where the foundations of life, health and learning happen in early years.

Because children naturally want to explore and discover new things, parents can start enrolling 6-month olds in learning programs that show benefits later on. As children turn five, 90 percent of the brain is already developed. This is the time to lay out the groundwork for academic and social success.

Facets of a Child’s Personality

Early childhood programmes improve areas of a kid’s personality. With the right provider, these serve as a head start for their wellbeing later on in life. These programs aim to improve the following areas:


There are activities that target personal, emotional and cognitive development in each kid, making them self-confident and self-directed learners.

There are also brain-stimulating activities that help kids decide between right and wrong, exercise critical and creative thinking and empathize and show compassion for others. Children learn early on that they should love learning and preserve the thirst for knowledge.

• Social

Just because a child learns early on does not mean they cannot be like normal children. Early childhood programmes like the ones offered at Heguru Education Centre starts teaching children at a very young age without robbing them of the opportunity to enjoy.

Play is an important opportunity to socialize. Kids learn to interact and communicate with others, work with peers and become active contributors in their teams. This prepares them to become concerned citizens of the country.

For a strong start in the early years of a child, parents and programme providers should work hand in hand. This is the only way to assure a positive outcome in the later life of the kids.
