KidStartNow Chinese Holiday Camp

[Sponsored Review]

Fish, crabs, jellyfish and seaweed everywhere. Those were what we saw when we entered the premises of KidStartNow. Oh yes, the theme of the camp is Underwater World (海底世界).



Teacher Hong Mei, with more than 20 years of experience, is very friendly and engaging. To get the children to be immersed into the underwater world theme, Teacher Hong Mei invited each of them to wear the fish or crab hat, and let them choose one of the underwater creature stuffed toys to be their friend.



Unlike the traditional method of holding up a big story book during storytelling, the teacher used animation to engage the children in an interactive manner.

In addition, there is a rewards system, in which the children get virtual coins, which can then be used to redeem stickers, get the avatar in the system, or borrow DVDs home to learn. The aims of this rewards system are to motivate the students to participate actively in class activities, and to act as classroom management system to encourage good class behaviour and teach good discipline.

Pei Pei and Hao Hao enjoyed the games most. After we visited the washroom, all the underwater creature stuffed toys went missing! The children searched high and low in the premises for the stuffed toys, and they were very happy to find all the stuffed toys.

The children also learnt Chinese through songs, dance, role play and hand craft.

While the children are having fun in the classroom, the parents can share their joy through watching the television at the reception area.



Other than holiday program, KidStartNow also offers enrichment classes for N2, K1 and K2. What is more attractive is, there is complimentary weekly revision classes (1 hour) for the students to increase their exposure to Chinese in a stress-free environment.
