Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is it important for my child to have the 4Qs?

    Our world is changing rapidly and a child needs to be developed as a whole person to thrive. It is important to nurture a child in other non-academic skills such as being resilient, having good social skills and being able to manage their emotions. These skills will also be transferable to the school setting and they will be able to process and understand their lessons better.
  • How proven are your methods?

    Our curriculum has been developed using researched pedagogies from USA, UK, Isreal and Australia in successfully shaping more than 6,000 children over the past 18 years. We are deliberately mindful not to over-emphasise getting the right answer; what is important is for a child to be able to analyze and support his answer and identify areas where he needs to self-correct. That is a far more powerful approach to learning than just competing to arrive at the right answer.
  • Are these skills taught in school?

    In most academic settings, the focus is on picking up content in a variety of subjects ranging from math to music. While content is important, the foundations of how to learn better and of having the right attitude to pick themselves up when they face roadblocks is crucial. Based on our experiences, issues may surface anywhere between Primary 1 to Primary 4 as these skills are taxed in a formal education setting thus a solid overall foundation is very important.
  • How long will my child need to attend such classes?

    At different levels, there will be different skills a child needs for that developmental age and as a child grows, he will need to develop more sophisticated skill sets to meet growing demands. Some parents have seen improvements from the first term with us, yet others continue to see positive changes term after term.
  • Your activities look like play. Are you sure my child will learn?

    Play is the best way to get kids engaged in learning, and our activities are designed in a special way to develop a range of skills. You will be surprised how much your child is learning beneath all that fun!
  • My child is very bright yet bored in school. Is this programme suitable for him?

    We have gifted children in our classes and their parents have seen great improvements in many areas of their development, such as being able to control their impulses, getting along better with their peers and being more respectful to their friends and adults.
  • How can I support my child’s learning at home?

    As we develop your child’s Resilience Quotient, you could encourage them to see failures as learning opportunities. Look out for our popular Parents as Partners workshops to learn tips on how you can support them at home.
  • Can I join mid-term?

    Yes, your fees will be pro-rated.
  • What if my child is sick on the day of lesson?

    A maximum of two (2) make-up classes per term are allowed.
