We popped by The Learning Lab (TLL)’s newest facility at Tampines Mall last weekend to check out the place as well as let Jayne experience what a typical lesson at The Learning Lab is like. Needless to say, she enjoyed it!
If you are still considering whether to enroll your kid into The Learning Lab, I say this is the best opportunity for you to find out more about their curriculum and what they are able to offer that will distinguish your kids from their peers. Personally, Joey has gone through a term of Math lessons with them and she has gone away from the experience with greater confidence and interest in the subject. In fact, from a borderline Band 2 and nearly Band 3 student in Math at the beginning of this year, she went on to obtain a 94% for her Math SA2 paper, which totally blew our minds away! As a student who struggled in Math through my many years of studies, I know what a great feat that is, and a great deal of credit should go to the boost of confidence she got at The Learning Lab.
Like the other Learning Lab facilities I’ve been to, this new facility at Tampines Mall is classy, sleek and well-equipped. Your kids will enjoy every lesson in these rooms. Trust me – My kids certainly did.
At The Experience Day, you will be able to look at the type of curriculum offered as well as the materials that would be used at every class. The Learning Lab has a team of dedicated curriculum developers who design and create unique and customized materials for their students which cannot be found elsewhere. This means that unless your kid is in The Learning Lab, they will not have access to those materials.
One of the greatest things I like about their curriculum is how up-to-date it is – The kids may be studying Math but the reference materials and discussion may center around the hottest topic in town and what everyone is concerned about at the moment. In my opinion, this makes the whole learning process not just academic but relevant to the changing times as well. At the end of the day, we do not just want our kids to be smart academically, we want them to be street smart and know what is happening in the world. Growing up, I had zero interest in current affairs and never would voluntarily pick up the newspapers to read. So when I entered Junior College and had to study General Paper, it was torturous for me. I love it that my kids don’t have to go through that – They are a lot more savvy than I was at their age!
While waiting for her trial class to start, Jayne had fun trying several activities. At the Experience Day, you can let your kids be entertained in this room with teachers guiding them along while you talk to the staff onsite and find out more about their curriculum.
Then a pleasant surprise came for Jayne! Kidzania’s Urbano showed up at the Activity Room and asked Jayne to help him with his crossword puzzle – Haha! We were just at Kidzania a week ago and everything was still fresh in her mind, so I could literally see her eyes light up when he walked in. In case you didn’t know, The Learning Lab is one of the institutions in Kidzania and you can earn degrees to increase your kidzo earnings there!
Jayne attended a one-hour trial class of P2 Math, and she enjoyed the activities she did in class. Your kids can attend a one-hour trial class as well and experience it for themselves what a typical lesson at The Learning Lab is like, while you get to attend a one-hour curriculum talk as the teachers share about their unique approach – from syllabus to curriculum outlines. At the end of the one hour, both you and your kid will have a better understanding of what you can expect at The Learning Lab.
