FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q1: The pace in Heguru classes is too fast and difficult to follow.
A1: At our early childhood education center – Heguru, the pace of the class is carefully varied. We emphasize speed in a Heguru classroom to fully utilize the right brain. To develop it, rhythm training such as flash cards etc…, requires high speed. Years of research shows we can stimulate our brains through such training and ultimately encourage quick thinking and an enhanced mental capacity.
Q2: My child is fidgety and it makes me concerned.
A2: All children are restless by nature. A child easily loses interest in one thing, and moves to another. However, a child can absorb information even if he/she is not paying attention to the object. Although a child does not seem to be concentrating, he/she is able to read content accurately. It is the responsibility of parents to choose a good learning environment or early childhood education center for children for them to enjoy and pay more attention during lessons.
Q3: We are a full-time working couple and don’t have time to look after our child’s learning at home. Will it be all right?
A3: It is important for your child to learn the Heguru method if you find it hard to educate him or her at home. Since the contents of our classes are very intense, your child can produce excellent results even if he/she only attends the class once a week. Even better, the results produced can be remarkable if parents can take the time to guide their children at home even if the time spent is very brief.
Q4: The achievement level Heguru students are quite high. I am afraid my child cannot keep up with them.
A4: All the parents feel the same way. The only reason your child may be behind in a class is because the others have had a head start. Therefore, you should praise your child for each accomplishment in the activities conducted. In 2 months or so, the child will get used to it and enjoy learning at our early childhood education center, Heguru.
Q5: I honestly don’t expect too much from my child. I don’t think a high-standard education, such as the one at Heguru is necessary.
A5: We understand early childhood education may seem strange for the parents, especially we start training infant from 6 months old. Some parents would rather raise their children in a more relaxed manner. On the other hand, various studies have concluded that such education bridges the huge gap in cognitive skills when a child becomes older. We encourage parents to open their horizons to increasing their child’s potential as they grow and enjoy nurturing the learning foundation for them just like sowing seeds in a field.
Q6: I cannot help scolding my child.
A6: Reprimanding your children is not always the effective solution because the question centers on how you can help improve your child. There has to some extent of “disciplining” but avoid from using harsh words because by doing that, you may discourage the child from progressing and can cause him or her to eventually lose self-confidence.
