Description

  • Want to learn how to support your child’s learning and give him/her a head start at school and in life?
  • Want to learn tested easy-to-use home practice activities?
  • Want to know how to guide your child effectively even when you have only 15 minutes with him/her?
  • And get support from a group of parents as enthusiastic as you?

Here is the workshop designed with you in mind:

Who it is for:

  • Busy parents
  • Keen on effective and efficient early home education
  • With children aged 0-6 years old

It’s suitable whether you’re starting from scratch or wishing to refresh and enhance your skills in teaching your child.

What’s here for you:

  • Immerse yourself in a 2-day workshop designed with the Accelerated Learning (AL) methodology
  • You’ll learn tested easy-to-use at-home activities that can support your children and give them a head start at school and in life.
  • Delivered personally Carol Wong (aka MieVee) — a mother of 3 children aged 6, 8 and 10, Certified Accelerated Learning Practitioner, Montessori Method practitioner, researching on education and homeschooling her children from 0 to 6 years old since 2009. Research shows that parent involvement in a child’s education is positively associated with a child’s academic performance.
  • During the programme, you’ll experience very practical demonstrations that show you how to carry out each learning activity. You’ll explore the basics that prime your child’s brains for learning, key teaching practices, how to respond to your child to build a growth mindset, how to practise mindfulness, how to read to your child, how to build your child’s memory skills, how to flash cards, and how to build math number sense.
  • You’ll have time to practise with your peers. The practice and feedback you receive will ensure that you can do all the activities at home with your children easily.
  • You can connect with like-minded parents to share successes, challenges and learning tips. This is a priceless time saver that keeps you motivated to continue with home practice over the future years as your children grow.

Why attend the workshop?

From parent to parent:

  • As parents, we are our children’s first and best teachers. Even if we send our children to the “best” school or enrichment centre (if one exists), we still need to guide them personally, be it to equip them with learning skills, respond in a way that shapes their beliefs positively, coach them with homework, or support their areas of interests.
  • As parents, we often handle our children with minimal or no assistance, unlike a school teacher. And our children could be more emotionally-demanding towards us versus their teachers.
  • How do we teach while handling their emotions, balancing home practice with work/housework, transiting them from playing to learning to sleeping, handling multiple children, etc.? This workshop is fully catered to a home-learning environment to help you become a confident parent.
  • As a work-at-home Mummy Owl to 3 active owls, I have limited time to conduct the live workshop. So once enrolment is full, you’d have to wait till the next batch, which would be up to twelve months away or in another country.

Testimonials from past workshops:

“A lot of information was covered within a short time, so nobody would have felt bored as you moved on to the next topic pretty quickly without lingering on anything specific for too long. You gave enough time for participants to ask our questions (in addition to FAQs) and patiently answered them with practical examples and tips. Your workshop was extremely useful and I can’t thank you enough for guiding so many parents! Will definitely share the great news about the upcoming workshop to my other mummy-friends and help them benefit too.” — Mummy D from Singapore, 15 September 2014

“Have recommended Owlissimo to mummies in [my daughter]’s class. I want to promote your amazing efforts to other mummies. Let everyone benefit too…” — Dr. V from Malaysia, 18 September 2014

Common questions:

  1. Why is this workshop held on weekdays?

This workshop is designed with working parents in mind too and it was they who suggested weekdays because they have existing childcare arrangements and can take leave to focus on their own learning and development. A busy working mother with 4 children said to me, “Those who really want to learn will make time for it.” She has already applied for leave for this workshop!

2. I’ve participated in your previous workshops before — Home Practice Intensive Basic and Intermediate. How is this workshop different?

The previous workshops Home Practice Intensive Basic and Intermediate were designed in 2014, 3-hour each, intensely delivered as I was extremely busy with 3 young children. Although many FAQs were answered, there was little time for hands-on practice and individualised attention to participants who needed more time to warm up.

This 2-day workshop re-organises the content while adding new content and modules informed by the latest research, such as developing a growth mindset and mindfulness. Based on encouraging feedback from past participants, I also added a module on building mathematics number sense.

I designed this workshop using the Accelerated Learning (AL) methodology during my capstone project under the guidance of Ms. Gail Heidenhain, board chair of the International Association for Accelerated Learning Practitioners (IAALP).

This workshop includes lots of experiential learning, personal reflection, pair work, group work, hands-on practice and feedback, and is designed to help you achieve much deeper learning and increased confidence when guiding your child.

3. What is the Accelerated Learning (AL) methodology?

Accelerated Learning is a systemic approach to facilitation that draws on interdisciplinary research and best practices to provide a roadmap to guide us in creating learning programmes that have a lasting positive impact by design and not by chance.

AL uses a variety of methods to identify and works with limiting factors in ways that enable a shift in thinking, the development of critical and innovative thinking, and more effective actions and behaviours. It creates the kind of learning that fosters deep learning and transformation.

As a Certified Accelerated Learning Practitioner, I am trained to apply the 8 Pillars of AL during facilitation:

  • Motivation
  • Learning / Learner-Centred
  • Interaction-Rich Environment
  • Playful Discovery and Experimentation
  • State Management
  • Beliefs / Attitudes
  • Systemic Design Approach
  • The Facilitator

You will also be brought through the Accelerated Learning Cycle to help enable your deep learning:

  • Learner Preparation
  • Connection
  • Discovery
  • Practice & Application
  • Integration

4. Why is payment in Singapore dollars (SGD)?

My company, Veezian Pte. Ltd., is registered in Singapore, so transacting in Singapore dollars makes accounting much easier. Whenever I save time on admin, I can spend more time writing articles and creating workshops and materials for parents like you. The ticket prices for the Kuala Lumpur session have included an estimated 5% discount for participants paying in currencies other than SGD.

5. Can I have a further discount?

Ticket prices have been kept minimal and the early owl tickets have been discounted. I use much of the company’s revenue to further invest in research and learning in the field of education and then do more sharing with parents like you. If you have a child with special needs requiring therapy, check out the sponsorships below.

6. What are the payment methods?

To save time on admin and accounting, only PayPal, credit or debit cards are accepted.
