Galileo Enrichment Learning Program is Finally Here in CDO!

Education is the most important thing we can give to our children. In fact, education starts at home and we, parents, are our children's first teachers. But when children grow older, we usually send them to school where they would have enhanced learning experiences. However, we should understand that each child is unique and thus learning varies from one child to another. Each child has different strengths and weaknesses, hence we need to help them develop in areas where they are usually weak.

These days, kids are fortunate because there are a lot of tutorial and enrichment centers which cater to children's learning needs. These establishment are there to help the kids improve in areas in which they are weak and help them gain confidence and get good grades in school. Here in Cagayan de Oro City, a lot of kids are being enrolled in tutorial centers offering Math and English and the results are that these kids would really improve in their grades at school!

As a mommy blogger, I was glad to have been invited by Ms. Marissa Ancheta (wife of Galileo Franchise Admistrator in CDO Mr. Rommel Ancheta) to grace the event of the newly-opened Galileo Enrichment Learning Program last May 9, 2015 located at L/G Knightsbridge building, Macasandig, Cagayan de Oro City.

Having 2 kids ages 4 and 11, I was more than eager to attend the event and to know what it is they had to offer. They even urged us parents to bring along our children so that they could be given free assessment on Math and English proficiency.

The kids were busy answering their Math & English assessment tests 

One of the speakers that afternoon was Galileo's CEO, Ms. Ma. Rowena J. Matti. She oriented the parents about the learning program and their advocacy. She emphasized that kids should not be forced to learn because learning should not be a traumatic but a fun experience for them. Ms. Rowie believed that "through English and Math, children will be able to become better in all the other subjects and they will be able to study and learn more effectively and efficiently".

Galileo was established in 2004 by a group of educators who saw the need to reinforce school-based learning in today's globally competitive environment. They came up with the program which caters to the different learning pace and style of each child and giving them a positive learning environment.

Galileo is a meaningful, exciting and fun Math and English enrichment program for children ages 3-12. They are also the first center here in CDO to offer Singaporean Math.

The program aims to give your child the following benefits:
  • Improve school grades
  • Become academically competitive
  • Develop a positive attitude towards studying by associating fun with learning
  • Nurture skills and talent
  • Gain lots of friends
Galileo's Program Framework has 3As:

ASSESSMENT (Diagnostic) - to determine the level of the learner
ADVANCEMENT (Summative) - to move the learner forward
ADAPTATION (Formative) - to provide tailor-fit activities for the learner

Here's a picture of my daughter enjoying her 2-week free trial at Galileo. I'm also showing you a glimpse of what's the set-up inside the center :-)
