Mommy is always happy with decision to send Shenny to full-day care nursery school at the age of 18 months (Jan 2007).
Still remember the 1st day Shenny in nursery school. Mommy was worried and purposely took half-day leave just to accompany Shenny till noon. At noon, Mommy purposely suddenly disappeared and let the teacher took Shenny for lunch. Mommy hide and from far observing Shenny sit with teacher and other kids eating her lunch. Shenny has already know how to use spoon/fork to scoop noodle or rice at home. So, it is no problem Shenny can eat all by herself but just a bit messy.
On 2nd day, Mommy just stayed 5 minutes with Shenny in school. I then called up to check how Shenny cope after I left. Surprisingly, teacher told me she just cried for a while (about 5 minutes).
At nursery school, Shenny has learnt many things.
Below are lists of achievement that Shenny has learnt from school (from Jan to Dec 2007):
1) At around 20 months, Shenny has successfully gone through potty training, which she does not need to wear diaper the whole day. She only wears diaper during sleeping time. It is very interesting to know how teacher train little kids to use potty. They had 4 little kids sit on potty in a row for 10 minutes. During this period, children are not allowed to make noise, however, the kids like to touch each other while sitting on potty.
2) At around 21 months, Shenny can recognise many colors (blue, yellow, black, white, green, pink and many more). I was told, among 18 children in Shenny age group, Shenny is considered as the 2nd top fast learner. The 1st top learner was a boy who is 6 months older than Shenny.
3) At around 22 months, Shenny can speak in full sentences clearly in English.
4) At around 22 months, Shenny can sing some beautiful songs.
