Learn and Play at South Champs Learning Center, Las Piñas

I was 5 years old when I started going to school, by that time I already know how to read and write as my mom home schooled me for the first four years. 

Following the old tradition, I also enrolled Tristan in a real school when he was 5 years old. But I admit it wasn't really a good choice. Tristan had a bit of a hard time adapting. I disregarded the fact that we grew up in a different environment. Growing up in the province with extended family I was exposed to a lot of people, I played freely outdoors compared to my kids which are mostly confined indoors and has limited contact with other people. Also with the busy life we have now, without a house helper and especially now that I already started working at home I am guilty of not providing enough time to actually home school my kids. So this coming school year I am already decided to enroll Athena to school, she's 3 turning 4 years old. The only thing that needs to be decided upon is the school. 

Of course as a mom I want what's best for my kids, well that's what every parents want right? So I am searching and checking different schools to send Athena to since Tristan's school only accepts Kindergarten up to High School. And very timely, I found out through Mommy Bloggers Philippines a new school here in Las Piñas, the South Champs Learning Center. 

South Champs Learning Center is an educational institution established last August 2015 to provide quality early childhood education aligned with the K-12 program to develop and equip early learners for future studies. 

South Champs Learning Center offers Progressive education because they believe in establishing a strong foundation in learning both socially and academically to help preschoolers develop into bright and independent individuals, ready to take on the next level.

Progressive education is a reaction against the traditional style of teaching which teaches facts largely at the expense of understanding what is being taught. - www.about.com 
Progressive education emphasizes learning by doing. So it's going to be more engaging compared to the traditional way of learning.

Kids will learn how to pay and interact at an early age.
