Eizac was super thrilled to receive his Certificate of Excellence! He witnessed a few kids receiving it before and it’s finally his turn.
We had such a good time every week at My Gym (Buona Vista) that he was still asking for more lessons after it ended. In all honesty, if we are not staying further away, I would have signed up another term for him. Here’s sharing some of the activities that left a deeper impression on him/me:
1) Objects Learning
Being given an object and allowed to fiddle, throw and even smash it (at times); all these piqued his curiosity and allowed room for creativity.
2) Gymnastics moves
This is more of my favourite than Eizac’s. He is a little apprehensive of the various gymnastic moves and exercises introduced. But he gamely became a volunteer when called upon by the teachers. The various exercises such as forward roll, balancing beam, backward flip on a bar and etc; these help to strengthen core muscles. The teachers will normally highlight which muscles are being worked on and what parents can try with their children back home.
3) The thrill rides!
There are always some surprises every week! It is never boring at My Gym. Eizac looked forward to the different set ups of the gym every week and sometimes they have thrill rides for the kids!
One week, we had a ‘superman dive’ into a ball pool and another week he had a spin ride on a swing. And the last week, all the kids went on a choo choo train! The hardworking teachers did their very best to give a fun experience to all the children. From my experience, the teachers in an enrichment class or a childcare centre/kindy can make or break the learning experiences for the young ones. I am grateful to the committed and chirpy teachers at My Gym (Buona Vista) for making it an enriching and enjoyable session every week. You need loads of energy for that!
During our term, I had the privilege to have a chat with the lady in charge of My Gym Bouna Vista – Janice. I learnt a touching story on why she decided to set up My Gym Buona Vista. Here is a short email interview of her sharing:
Q: Why did you decide to set up My Gym Buona Vista?
A: My 6 year old son has joined My Gym since he was 2 years old. He has delayed developmental issues and was frequently teased by his peers. He was even rejected by teachers in main stream schools. I’ve seen how My Gym program has helped him developed physically, cognitively and emotionally. My heart goes out to help children with difficulties. Henceforth, my husband and I decided to take up My Gym franchise. Besides working with well-functioned children, we accept special needs children, giving them an opportunity to socialize in a group setting as well as providing early intervention for them and working on their self-confidence.
Q: What are the unique points about My Gym Buona Vista that differentiate it from other providers?
A: Besides our award-winning program, we are very particular about the quality of our teachers. They are well-trained, passionate and patient with children. We emphasize on small student-to-teacher ratio to provide individual attention and positive reinforcement. We teach our children on accepting everyone’s differences and encouraging one another using kind words. Most importantly, we accept children with special needs. Parents are often very appreciative of us giving their children a chance. Our teachers are trained in special needs and early childhood.
I am really impressed with the quality of teachers at My Gym Buona Vista. The passion, love, energy and commitment is admirable. It is a well known fact that it is not easy to hire good early childhood teachers these days. If you are looking for a wholesome and energetic program for your child, I do recommend My Gym @ Buona Vista.
