the foundation to better learning

What really attracted me to choose Shichida is their very unique course. The course design and focus are on both the left and the right brain development.
This is something which I have not been able to find, especially with such a high level of quality, in Hong Kong.
Each class activity is unique and special. The memory training session, especially the linking method story, is the activity that I enjoy the most. My daughter not only enjoys the story itself, but she also feels proud for picking the correct cards. I am mostly impressed & I feel amazed by how much they can remember as it’s not easy to remember 15 cards in such a short time.
Teachers here are professional, patient, and put in a lot of effort to prepare for each class. Reports from teachers are always helpful because they take great care in praising each child’s strengths as well as identifying areas for improvement and provide ongoing support and assistance to help each child reach their potential.
The class content covers a wide range of skills, including flash card memory, photographic memory, imagination, phonics, brain-storming, calculation, reading and listening.
After attending classes at Shichida for 1 year & 8 months, I found that Quincy has become a quick learner with logical thinking activities, and her ability in learning new vocabularies is much stronger. Her listening, speaking skills & memory have improved a lot.

The teaching style at Shichida is different to other learning centres as they focus on development of the right brain abilities. If children are taught using the Shichida methodology at a younger age this will strengthen their right brain abilities including memorization and critical thinking.
Personally I enjoy the Chi Cha activity the most, this game helps the child to practise memorization and can give the child a sense of accomplishment.
The Shichida methodology adopts an interactive style of teaching as opposed to spoon-feeding information to children. The classes allow children to learn in a comfortable and relaxed environment. The classes cover a broad range of topics and skills which can help a child (whose brain is still developing) to practice their memorization skills, critical thinking, logical thinking, train their motor skills and teach them English as well. The activities available at Shichida let the children grow their skills in a happy and fun environment.

We first came to learn about the Shichida from a book that I read in a bookshop, and the more I read about the Shichida methodology to enhance brain power, the more I believed about the benefits and positive influence of early teaching for my kids.
The fun and creative imaginary make-up story to link up all those pictures (totally unrelated at times) was definitely one of the most creative and enjoyable activities that my son and I participated in, and the riddles games was also something we have always enjoyed.
The key differences are the pace and the levels of the teaching materials, which are a lot more advanced than other centres or even kindergartens at the same age group, and it is this very reason we decided to join Shichida in the first place as we want to foster his desire for knowledge.
One major improvement that we noticed is his self-belief and willingness to make choices based on his intuition and gut feeling which is something he would never tried before he joined Shichida.

As parents, we chose Shichida after extensively researching all of the options for right brain early childhood education and found that the differentiating factors, highlighting Shichida, were clear and important. Namely, a stable teaching core, with no staff turnover since we arrived and who are all highly trained, very competent and take an individual interest and approach to the children, and secondly, the smaller class size at Shichida makes for less distractions and a higher absorption rate of the information being taught and an overall more enjoyable experience.
Our daughter began attending the once per week English-only class and was so excited by the school and inspired by the classes that she in now attending the English/Mandarin two days per week program and still thrilled to be there each and every class. She is also attending a Montessori based playgroup three times a week and the difference in her excitement level when attending Shichida classes is obvious.
Based on our own research, we understand fully the latest research-based developments in early childhood education and the importance of brain stimulation in babies, from newborn to three years old, in building those neural transmission pathways that will be utilized over a lifetime. Shichida is playing a vital role in helping our family to to deliver the best education possible to our daughter in these early years.
