ILLAC Preschool Enrichment Classes (2-6 Years Old)

I Love Learning is an academic institution that just as the name implies. Here, both students and tutors are in love with learning. We are passionate about providing preschool enrichment classes in Singapore like phonics classes to help young learners in their early steps towards formal schooling. We make our classes fun and enjoyable to foster a stress-free and positive environment so our young learners will have a good impression about studying.

Not Your Typical Phonics Classes in Singapore

The ILLAC Junior Programme is specially designed based on research by Harvard University. Children attending the preschool enrichment classes are actively stimulated with fun and engaging hands-on activities and real-life props that make learning impactful and meaningful. Classes are filled with laughter, music and movement to stimulate the curious mind.

Best of all, our Phonics classes cover both phonics and Mathematical concepts so you get to sharpen both skills through just one programme!

Through this programme, your child will have a heightened learning ability that enables them to read phonetically, count, solve problem sums, become more worldly-wise, have better self-control, higher confidence in everything they do and lots of love for learning with the phonics classes they will attend in!

We achieve these amazing transformation through very stimulating hands-on activities like memory games, tactile words formation, IQ questions, poems, puzzles and many more!

You’ll be amazed at the transformation of your child, just like many parents have. Join our preschool enrichment classes now!

What Makes Our Phonics Classes Different?

Our Preschool Enrichment Classes are suitable for children aged 2-6.
——————–
Rather than paying for phonics classes that train your child purely on phonics, you get more than just phonics from the ILLAC Programme! Your child’s executive functions will be fully stimulated and achieve peak performance in their learning abilities! In each preschool enrichment classes, your child will experience:

  1. Working Memory stimulation using Phonics, Maths and Science!
  2. Mental flexibility stimulation through cultural props and puzzles!
  3. Inhibitory Control simulation through music and movement and academic exercises!

Working memory is the system responsible for the transient holding and processing of new and already-stored information, and is an important process for reasoning, comprehension, learning and memory updating.

You have 8 apples, you ate 2 and bought another 3. How many apples do you have now?

If you are stumped for a while, that’s because your working memory wasn’t exactly working effectively.

Working memory can be heightened by an intentional stimulation through our program.

100% of our students improve in their working memory by at least 40% after 6 months of training!

This is not a random number generated without proof, all our students are scientifically reassessed every 6 months, every single one of our parents can testify to the remarkable improvement.

Not only do parents find it worthy of their investments, children love coming to ILLAC for the stimulating and fun activities in class!

Mental Flexibility is the capacity to nimbly switch gears and adjust to changed demands, priorities, or perspectives.

Try naming the colours of each word as quickly as possible (i.e. the first one is green):

How was it?

The ability to switch gears and see things differently is very important to learning.

Children deploy this skill to decode letters in words (e.g. soft C for “city” and hard C for “Cat”), solve different problem sums, analyse different science experiments and apply different grammar rules.

In our program, we use specially-designed puzzles and content (e.g. cultures of the world) to stimulate this aspect of the brain to enhance children’s mental flexibility.

Children who graduate from our ILLAC Junior Program are highly knowledgeable about different countries in the world and they could solve puzzles with ease.

They are also more ready for Primary P1 than students of the same age.

We are not referring to success rates of one or two really good students, we are referring to 100% of our students achieving better results in our scientific assessment when compared to students who had come in from other enrichment centers.

Inhibitory control is the skill children use to master and filter out thoughts and impulses so they can resist temptations, distractions and habits to pause and think before they act.

Try chanting the 3 times table as quickly as possible but skipping multiples that consist of the number “2”.

Takes a lot to do this without hiccups isn’t it?

Children need lots of inhibitory control and impulse control in order to excel in a crowded classroom of students, noise, distractions etc.

Our programme uses specially-designed activities such as role-playing, breathing techniques, and music and movement to train children to activate their self-regulation ability to enhance on their focus and their ability to concentrate.

Many believe in a fierce teacher or a strict discipline to ensure children behave themselves but in actual fact, the most important thing in good discipline is the child’s own ability to regulate themselves.

Above that, the teachers will do a one-on-one consultation with you so that you can be a part of the training process to improve your child’s self-regulation ability.

How do I know which level my child belongs to ?

We adopt a scientific cognitive assessment tool to determine the level most suitable for your child in our preschool enrichment classes. Book an appointment with us now to know where your child stands.

Children are assigned into phonics classes based on their cognitive ability and level rather than by age so that all children can learn comfortably and progress at an optimum pace.
