As Victor Hugo said in Les Miserables, “To learn to read is to light a fire.” This statement explains exactly how the minds of young children work.
We at SBL Singapore, value reading because we feel is what lights the flame of knowledge. Reading takes you through all sorts of adventures. It helps you learn new perspectives about the world. It also puts you into contact with genius ideas uttered centuries ago.
A love for books is essential to become the best version of yourself and many Singaporeans understand this idea. This is why many parents enrol their children into phonics and enrichment classes.
These phonics enrichment classes for the young ones are equally as important as tuition classes in the years to come.
For instance, many parents prefer enrichment classes through music. This is because music improves listening through multi-sensory activities that make children fall in love with storytelling. But all that takes research and interesting props, which require a sufficient budget.
There is more to a phonics class than yelling letters and sounds at children. As teachers or aspiring teachers, you need to know all about child’s psychology on different age groups. You need to engage you students. This way, they will be able to improvise and develop their higher-order thinking skills. Thus, forming the basis of vocabulary building.
Although this is a profitable sector, SBL Singapore understands the hard work required to make a name for yourself in this business. Hence, we have specifically tailored Phonics Class / Enrichment Business Loans to help aspiring business owners.
A few months ago, we helped the Lim couple successfully set up their own phonetics enrichment centre. Mrs Sandra and Mr Robert Lim are retired actors and parents of three grown children. They enjoyed reading to their children when they were little. However, they struggled with the cognitive differences of their youngest son, who was born with Down syndrome.
Mr and Mrs Lim didn’t give up and they used all their knowledge and expertise to help their little one become a proficient reader, confident that this ability would help his brain function.
Now, they want to help other children become their best selves and spark a passion for reading in their tiny minds. They already had a phonics studio before coming to us at SBL Singapore for help. But Mr Lim was invovled in an accident, and all their emergency funds went into his recovery.
Their school was closed for two years, and so they needed to remodel it, plus hire and train new staff.
