Parents Want The Children To Get A Headstart Done By Sherman Teo


This article was about a study done by the Lien Foundation on early childhood education which had submitted a list of recommendations to help improve preschool education. It is called "Starting Well Index". The participants are all leaders from different fields such as social services, health and education. Dr Lynn Ang, a senior lecturer on early childhood mentioned that there are lots of different arguments for having a privatised preschool. Parents pay between S$100 and S$150 a month. Other parents, if they can afford it, pay up to $1,000 a month. They think that a good quality preschool where the children are happy and they have very good teachers who are well trained.


I think that parents are spending too much money on their children’s education nowadays. Some people think that there are stiff competition between their children and others therefore wanting to be the top. In my opinion, I think that parents should not be spending huge sums of money on their children’s education because children may not be able to absorb all of the knowledge that is being taught to them. Instead we should spend the money on the children’s well being ad let them enjoy their childhood. They should also have a class where children can both learn and play and the parents do not need to spend a huge amount of money on them.
