Weekend Activites | Reading Class at La Famiglia Parent Child Centre

by - March 05, 2018

Children are mirrors, reflecting images of what happens around them, parents greatly affect their children's behavior, they model everything a parent does and incorporate what they see into their own lives. It is important that parents set the right examples for their children. Reading is a habit I have started with Miya ever since she was a baby, it is a special bonding time we had since she was young and it preps her for reading on her own.

Since Miya has always been fascinated with books and she enjoys our daily session of reading every day, when La Famiglia Parent Child Centre invited us to join them for their weekend classes, we were so happy and excited to drop by. La Famiglia weekend classes are parent-accompanied class and since I'm pregnant, daddy Ricky will have to take my place for the time being. The reading classes will take around an hour and each week there will be a different theme chosen for it, classes suits children aged 0-3 years old and 4 to 6 years old.

Here are some of the benefits of reading with your child: -
#1 Reading to children sets the foundation for later independent reading.
#2 The special time you spend reading together promotes bonding and helps to build your relationship.
#3 Reading develops creativity and a child's ability to use his or her own imagination.
#4 Reading builds listening skills, increases attention span and develops the ability to concentrate




The class started with singing and dancing, the main teacher of the day lead a welcome song, it was a catchy tune where the children can easily hum to it by the 2nd or 3rd round. At first, Miya was a bit shocked by all the singing and dancing but as soon as she warms up, the little one was happy to join everyone. After the excitement and warming up the reading class started.









During the reading session, the teacher made sure that every child got a chance to play and interact with the activities, I was glad and happy to see Miya being able to enjoy herself so much. It really showed us how much she loves interacting and the themed of Chinese New Year excites her even more because she was in the mood already. Classes ended with the Tea Etiquette for Chinese New Year whereby parents sit properly in the dominant chairs in the living room and their children offer them tea in a proper manner.



In today's technology savvy world it is really important to build an emotional connection with your children. We enjoyed ourselves very much at La Famiglia Parent Child Centre and we hope to be back again soon for their cooking classes as well and Miya was really excited when I told her that, when we were on our way back, she asked: "Mummy we'll be back to visit teacher tomorrow right?" I told her we will once I'm done with my delivery of Mei Mei, we will certain come back again.

  4. Awh this activity looks like it would be such fun for the kids. Not to mention that they will be interacting with other kids as well, so that is great too. Love that the focus here are for books to be implemented at a young age - I am doing the same thing with my little one everyday and it makes a world of difference in the long run.

  6. Well, it's an interesting activity. You are very lucky to have this kind of invitation, jia. the activity opened the eyes of the parents and opened the mind of the child to just love reading books.
    now, with izzat I started reading him books / magazines. buy short story books and pictorial children's magazines. to draw his attention and make him interested in reading.
    Now, our children need to go ahead before his age.

  8. What an interesting way of spending our time with babies! I'm sure this way they can not only develop a technical skill, but they can also have fun and quality time with their parents!

  9. Honestly, this is what more children should be exposed too...and lesser technology. Like you said earlier it helps them to get creative and builds up their patience and concentration span. Right now, from what I've seen happening around, kids are just screaming their heads off if there isn't any gadgets in sight....relying on gadgets is like a no-no for me.

    1. Yes, it's a pity nowadays technoloy has taken over, so far I've not let my daughter come in contact with using tablets or handphones but I guess once she goes to playschool/primary she'll be requesting for one.
