Here are 6 fun facts about early childhood we love!

21 February

1. You can accelerate your child’s language development

One-sided conversations with babies aren’t as one-sided as you think! Getting your response rate to your baby’s coos above 80% can accelerate their language development. So keep talking to your children – the more words they hear, the sooner they will start to respond!


2. Walls have ears? So does your child!

At 1.5 years, your child is learning an average of 9 words a day! Pay attention to not only what you say around your children, but also how you say things. They are not only listening to your words, but also the tone of your voice when using those words. Keep the profanities away or better yet – get rid of them altogether!


3. Your relationships teach your child how to behave

Your children are always watching and learning from you, including how you react towards people and situations. Setting examples of healthy behaviour and emotional connections allow children to model that behaviour and build healthy relationships of their own.


4. Children are naturally curious

Children may ask more than 70 questions in a day! That is a lot and can be exhausting, but make the effort to reinforce their desire to learn. Encourage them to ask questions, and don’t be afraid of not having all the answers – go through the process of finding out about things together!


5. Your child is a learning sponge

Growth mindset starts young! Failure is part and parcel of life, and our response to failure determines our next step. What we can do is to help our children build resilience to failure. Nurture your child to keep trying when they fail at something, as this provides them with more opportunities towards success. They already possess the ability to learn, they only need the resilience to try again!


6. Children learn from other children

Yes, that’s right! Your child is not only learning from the adults at home or the teachers in school, they are also learning from their peers. Socialisation with peers from a young age give children the opportunity to learn how to interact, build communication skills, and decipher how “playing with other children” works. So go ahead and schedule those play dates!

Thank you 2021, and welcome 2022!

28 December

2021 has been an exciting year for us here at Bibinogs Preschool K.A. despite covid restrictions. We made the best of the situation while adhering to safe measurement measures, and introduced some new activities and programmes – virtual tours in place of physical excursions, as well as themed holiday programmes – that our children thoroughly enjoyed!

Let us round up 2021 and usher in 2022 with a quick recap of our last two holiday programmes of the year.

Colouring “The Tiger Who Came to Tea” using different mediums!

A little extension activity after going through the books “The Rainbow Fish”, “The Foolish Turtle” and “The Star-faced Crocodile”!

Making our very own rainbow, inspired by “The Rainbow Fish”!

“Aim” “Shoot”… “Slam Dunk”? These are just some of the basketball vocabulary we learnt.

Relay race! Wait… I’m coming to pass you the baton!

Will he make the home run…?

Eyes on the ball… not letting the opponents score another goal!

Medals for everyone! We are all winners because we worked together. Remember… the Olympics is all about fostering peace through sports!

Thank you for all your support through 2021. We hope you’re ready for another exciting year with Bibinogs! School reopens on Monday, 3rd January, and we look forward to welcoming you back then!
