Great School Holiday Days

Great time during school holidays! Worth every minute spent with these little ones :)

One of the best times to see kids mingling with friends is during school holidays.

As parents, we want our kids to develop and exhibit great social skills. And letting them play with other kids during school holidays is one of the best ingredients to develop an exceptional social skills.

Children learn how to behave and interact in society by watching other kids interact with the world.

This is the very reason why our playhouse exists. We teach our kids to behave and adapt to the society accordingly. Watching them grow and become a better person is the most rewarding thing for us to see!

Wednesday Care

Same activity but different individual gains different experience and knowledge. Don't you agree that it happens to us too?

Yes this happens to every people. We do the same thing and ends up with different results and experience.

We do the same thing but we have a different perspective to it, leading us to have different results.

At our playhouse, we make sure that our kids will enjoy what they do regardless of the results and experiences they gain.

Childhood Friends


I wonder whether they will meet again when they have grown up.. Will they be great friends? How many of you still keep in touch with your childhood friends? Good day everyone!

But how do you really keep good friends even if you part ways?

Don't let life drift you apart!

Life has so much surprises for all of us. And sometimes it gets hectic or rough and a lot of friendships tend to shatter over time. Do not let your communication go off. Always get in touch with each other. Even with a simple "hello" means everything to a true friend. At our playhouse, we teach our kids to value friendship by letting them bond with other kids.

Cuteness Overload!

Cuteness overload! Siblings love. Baby was so engaged when her older brother was playing with her.

There's no greater sight to see than an older brother making everything to make his little sister happy. This is truly a great display of love.

At our playhouse, we teach our kids to practice showing love to their siblings. This is what we do best!

Saturday Play Care



Our kids love Saturday because the schedule is so much different from the weekdays! So much playing and exploring on their own and with friends!

From slides to balls, from bubbles to songs, from blocks to books!

We are happy to see them learning happily =)

Writing

Stage 3:  Lines and Patterns (2 1/2 years to 3 1/2 years) 
Children now understand that writing is made up of lines, curves, and repeated patterns.  They try to imitate this in their own writing.  So while they may not write actual letters, you may see components of letters in their drawing.  These might include lines, dots and curves.  This is an exciting time as your toddler realizes that his drawing conveys meaning!  For example, he may write something down and then tell you what word it says.  This is an important step toward reading and writing.


Stage 4:  Pictures of Objects or People (3 years to 5 years)

Many adults think of “pictures” as a picture of something.  This ability to hold an image in your mind and then represent it on the page is a thinking skill that takes some time to develop.  At first, children name their unplanned creations.  This means that they finish the picture and then label their masterpiece with the names of people, animals, or objects they are familiar with.  This changes over time. 
Soon you will see your child clearly planning prior to drawing what he will create.  You will also see more detail in the pictures, more control in the way your child handles the crayon or marker, and the use of more colors.  What else to be on the lookout for?  Children’s first pictures often build off circles.  So, you may see a sun—an irregular circle, with lots of stick “rays” shooting out—or a person (usually a circle with roughly recognizable human features). 
Once your child has begun to purposefully draw images, she has mastered symbolic thinking.  This important milestone in thinking skills means that your child understands that lines on paper can be a symbol of something else, like a house, a cat or a person.  At this stage, your child also begins to understand the difference between pictures and writing.  So you may see him draw a picture and then scribble some "words" underneath to describe what he has drawn or to tell a story.  When your child is able to share his story with you, he will be motivated to "author" more and more work as he grows.

And…later:

Stage 5:  Letter and Word Practice (3 to 5 years)

Children have had experience with letters and print for several years now and are beginning to use letters in their own writing.  Usually children start by experimenting with the letters in their own names, as these are most familiar to them.  They also make “pretend letters” by copying familiar letter shapes, and will often assume that their created letter must be real because it looks like other letters they have seen (Robertson, 2007). 

During this time, children also begin to understand that some words are made of symbols that are shorter and some words are made of symbols that are longer.  As a result, their scribbles change.  Rather than one long string of letters or letter-like shapes, your child's writing now has short and long patterns that look like words or sentences.  While these letters and words are probably not technically correct, it does not matter.  This exciting milestone means that your child is beginning to understand that text and print have meaning.

Big Space


We have always loved to see our children running around, playing balls, singing songs, dancing or just sitting down to read or talk to us in a big empty space!.The excitement and joy on their faces are priceless! 

Try to have this kind of space at home. Your child will appreciate you lots!
