Welcome to Ros Schoolhouse, a cosy enrichment centre located in Pasir Ris. Here, they offer a whole-brain enrichment programme for children aged 2 – 7 years old. I was sponsored the parent accompanied class with Kate and was astonished by the sheer number of activities packed into the 1 hour session.

Ros Schoolhouse is specially designed to provide young children with an opportunity to fulfil their utmost potential through early introduction exposure to essential skills and concepts using a holistic approach.
This was the first time Kate has attended such a program, and I discovered that the instructional approach of the whole-brain program is derived from the neurolinguistic awareness of the functions of the brain’s left and right hemispheres. This creates an integrated brain – a “whole” brain where the functions of one hemisphere are immediately available to the other. The foundation is especially important when children start formal schooling in primary school. This is a strong “pull-factor” in the education-focused and competitive Asian education landscape.
The Programme structure for the Enrich 1 – Enrich 3 classes include Phonics, Quantitative Mathematics, Science and discovery, IQ play, Music and movement, Art & Craft, Memory play (right brain stimulation) and Thematic General Knowledge Input (through flashcards and games).

They play memory games whereby the children are flashed 4 images on a sheet of paper. It is then hidden and they have to place the correct card in the correct spot. Well, Kate got it all wrong, and I was surprised to see that the other kids managed to do it quite easily. The other mums reassured me that their kids started out like that too and got better with practice.
Homework is given every week to reinforce the learning, and the older kids were amused that Kate had ‘real’ homework to do! She is learning words beginning with ‘i’.
