Bright Kids Preschool is one of the premier Bacolod preschools with a progressive teaching style. And we are just happy to have our little Shane finish Kinder at Bright Kids Preschool, along with 35 other students.
Finishing Kinder at Bright Kids Preschool
All in all, a total of 36 children finished kinder at Bright Kids Preschool. Mind you, it’s not easy to complete this level because the school is also keen on producing kids who will also be ready to tackle the big school.
But with the help and support of the teachers and parents, the kids proudly marched during their moving up ceremony. It was held at the SMX Convention Center at SM City Bacolod.
A Successful and Orderly Event
It was a lively and happy afternoon. Several other classes had their recognition that afternoon. All of the classes performed different numbers in full costumes.
Despite so many students, the pace was very fast and orderly. Even the picture taking was very systematic. Bright Kids Preschool has been doing this for 10 years already. And while they grow, they also learn and adapt to the changes.
The Kinder A boys performed Fire by BTS while the Kinder A Girls danced to BBoom BBoom by Momoland. Meanwhile, the Kinder B class danced to I Got a Feeling and The Time by Black Eyed Peas.
I wanted to make a video of the graduation but I was too stressed to take videos. haha So vlog for the Moving Up Ceremony. But if you want to see the kids’ vlog, visit Sisters Act Kids Can Tell on YouTube.
Shane’s Back Story
Unlike her Achi who was an early reader, we had quite some trouble teaching Shane how to read. However, we didn’t pressure her. If she refused, we didn’t pursue. We just thought that when she was ready, she would just learn.
Last April 2018, Shane was 4 years and 8 months when we had her assessed for school. We were told that she didn’t know anything. She couldn’t read nor write. She underwent remedial summer classes and by the end of May, teacher said she was one of the best students. So without prior formal schooling, we prepared her for enrollment to Kinder School.
It was also about the same time that Shane was picked to be one of the NINfluencers for NESTOGROW. What a wonderful opportunity it was, but it also meant extra work on Shane’s part.
Exactly a year later, Shane successfully finished Kinder 2 with a General Academic Excellence Award (gold) for a GPA of more than 97. She has achieved 90% of this success by herself. We don’t have a tutor and Shane has very little supervision at home. Additionally, she had a total of 14 days of absences because we were always traveling as a family.
But with the patience of her teachers, Shane surpassed everything. We are so proud of her determination to succeed. At the same time, we are really thankful to Bright Kids Preschool for nurturing her.
Considering Another School
Honestly, we also considered other kinder schools. But choosing the right Bacolod preschool or kinder school for your child is really important.
There were some who were nearer to us and who even had cheaper tuition fees but hubby and I were disappointed after meeting with the administrators. The worse part was their lack of understanding about homeschooling. Instead of telling us how good their school was, they just kept telling us to send our kids to regular school.
We have never regretted sending our children to Bright Kids Preschool here in Bacolod City. They have given our children the best training. 🙂
As many of you know, Achi Shawna is also a product of Bright Kids Preschool but she went to the 10th Street campus. We are entering Level 5 and she is homeschooled. We believe that homeschooling is the best way for our children.
Aside from the school, I want to take this opportunity to thank the parents of Shane’s classmates. I dunno, this was one really nice group. Though I don’t really spend a lot of time in school, the parents are really easy to get along with.
Special thank you to Mommy Kate and her untiring support to the whole class. With that, hubby and I are so thankful.
This is the end of our journey with Bright Kids Preschool. Thank you Teacher Sheryll Ong, school directress, for your vision of making school and learning fun for the children!
