It takes a village to raise a child, and it is imperative for us to also to combine the emotional development in childhood with academic progress.
Preschool 2- 5 years
For preschool 2-5 years, the children display understanding of social transactions and expectations for comportment. They show sympathetic and prosocial behavior toward peers and insight into others’ emotions (including parents). As such, phonics and early preparatory programmes add proficiency in their communications and increase understanding of their world.
From lower primary school onward, seeking support from caregivers begin to decrease overtime, and increasing reliance on situational problem-solving evident. They would attempt to solve problems independently, based on the information and their own situational awareness. Also, they may adopt distancing strategies to minimize any control/ restrain they may experience (especially from parents).
Adolescence (10-13 years)
Reaching adolescence (10 – 13 years), they are capable of generating multiple solutions and differentiated strategies for dealing with stress, with increasing integration of moral character and personal philosophy in dealing with stress and subsequent decisions. It is at this critical phrase when things can go wrong, if little/ no attempt is made to address their confidence and self- esteem.
Important to match teaching methodology with maturity
In PACED LEARNING ACADEMY, we tailor our teaching metholody closely to the children’s maturity level. We believe that academy progression must be coupled with their emotional development. We focus heavily on relationship-building, forging trust with the children and their parents.
If your child or someone you know needs academic support, please seek the help from the right academic center.
