i agree that being a 'hippie' is a state of mind. i am currently looking for a childcare that actually respects children. my son is 4. he was traumatised by a previous childcare here in the tanglin area and i do not wish to repeat his unhappy experience. do any of you 'hippies' out there
know of one in the tanglin/orchard area? i have visited about 7 and they are all either very focused on the 'curriculum' or seem to have no understanding of children's psychology.
will start a new thread on this search as i am at my wits end! i agree that if a child is happy/relaxed, learning will come naturally to them. ( as my son is. ) he is so interested in counting and reading without me actually focusing on him learning anything!
