A Great Vision

Our Values and Principles 

Our 5 Pillars of Practice with the children are:- 

English Champ’s Education Method: Creating a Lifelong Learner 3 Love  

“How do you spell ‘love’?” – Piglet. “You don’t spell it. You feel it.” – Pooh 

The evidence on the role of loving nurture in the emotional, social and  cognitive development of children is powerful for growth 

Love your child without attaching it to his/her deeds 

Understand your child’s love language and reciprocate it to him/her

Feel love, project love. Use the heart and not the head in parenting

Allow your child to explore different areas of interest to find his/her true  purpose and calling in life


Explore with Your Child 

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”- Jeniffer Lee 

For very young children, the world is a magical place and hence, they  are natural explorers to make sense about the people, places and  things around them 

Children are naturally fearless. With little or no intervention in the daily  routine, they explore, fail or fall, succeed or get up and the whole cycle  begins again. Your child will learn self-reliance, self-trust, self-love and  be on a journey to life-long self-directed learning. This goes beyond  childhood and into adulthood enabling him/her to take charge of and  design his/ her own life 

When you explore with your child, you see what your child sees at eye  level. If your child is at a crawling stage, he/she sees what is under the  furniture rather than what is on it. Crawl with your child and be cool  about swiping the dust off your palms afterwards 

Explore what is going on in your child’s head and heart. Ask your child  questions to learn about him/her. What is his/her perspective? What  are his/her fears, likes and dislikes? What was your child proud of in a  situation that he/her had handled? What could he/she had done  better? What has he/she learned from the experience?  

Let your child know that you are human too and be open to share your  feelings about a situation that challenged you as well


Attend to Your Child’s Needs 

“Every child needs at least one adult who is irrationally crazy about him or her.”- Urie Bronfenbrenner 

Every individual is unique. The needs of your first child will defer from  your second or third or any other children you know.  

Accept your child as who he/she is without imposing your thoughts and  authority on him/her. 

Every child’s brain will need a different kind of ‘food’. A brain that  processes information visually would need a different approach and  education plan as compared to one with higher auditory or kinaesthetic  functions. 

Be clear between your child’s needs and wants.  

Be mindful if you are living your needs and wants through your child by  creating the same needs and wants in him/her, be it intentionally or  unintentionally


Respect Your Child 

“You can’t teach children to behave better by making them feel worse. When children feel better, they behave better.” – Pam Leo 

Respect is earned, not demanded. How do you earn your child’s respect?  Listen to her, acknowledge her, tell her you love her, tell her how she is  special, praise her privately, and praise her publicly. Do not correct him in an embarrassing way, do not mock, belittle or put  him down in any way when speaking, and do ask for his opinion. 

A child learns respect through observing you. Respect the elders. Respect  the people around you. Respect the living beings and things. Respect  relationships and commitments. Respect rules. Respect oneself through  words, gestures and deeds. 

You will be amazed at how smooth parenting is once you are able to fully  master this 


Nurture Your Child 

“Education begins the moment we see children as innately wise and capable  beings. Only then can we play along in their world.”- Charles Spurgeon 

Working to nurture with nature is by identifying your child’s innate  strengths and gifts and use these to nurture him/her. This will minimise  your struggle and create a flow in your nurturing process instead.  

A child is like a seed planted today and grows tomorrow. With proper  formula to nourish the mind, the heart and the body, your child will grow  farther and further, bigger and stronger. 

Nurturing requires patience, commitment, repetition and trust in the  process that eventually you will witness the fruits of your labour. 

Nurture with your heart and not your head. Everyone has a little voice in  the head. Let that little voice of your child be something positive. This  way, you will be nurturing your child towards the most powerful force  that he/she will possess which is what he/she says to himself/ herself  and to believe.


Building Partnership with the Support System – The LEARN Triangle

English Champ’s Education Method: Creating a Lifelong Learner 4


The parties in the LEARN Triangle believe in creating TECH learners for the self, the child and  others. The parties in the LEARN Triangle also adopt and practise the LEARN system with the child. 

The Parent/ Main Caregiver 

The parent and main caregiver spends the most time with the child each day.

The Educators 

The educators consist of your child’s school teachers, enrichment teachers such as art  teacher, language teacher or sports teacher.  

The Support Team 

The support team includes but is not limited to your child’s specialists such as the doctors,  therapists, counsellors; and grandparents, relatives and close friends, neighbours, and the  community. 

To give your child a great head start in life, select your LEARN Triangle wisely and create an  open communication with all parties involved.
