Developing Creativity in Your Kids

With the recent announcement by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to introduce changes in the national education curriculum, parents now must embrace a new educational paradigm – one that moves away from simply learning and controlling facts, to one that develops a widely-varied range of personal skills. Education Success Coach Jason Ng of MindChamps will show the importance of imagination.
Sleep Well to Live Well
Sep 27, 12.30 to 2pm
This talk helps parents understand the importance and strategies for good sleep. Sleep for babies assists in brain development, proper learning, and to a certain extent, social adjustment.

Mr Wong Suen Kwong of Centre for Fathering and Mr Peter Tan, Head of Bancassurance at United Overseas Bank, will speak.
