Positive Focus® programmes are founded on the philosophy that a child's development must be balanced and well rounded. We believe in the holistic development of the child's mind, body, behaviour and emotional quotient.
Mainly, what sets Positive Focus® Programmes apart from every other is our focus on all 3 major elements of a child’s development: IQ, EQ, PQ. We do this through the integration of 6 primary proven methodologies.
1) Applied Positive Psychology
Positive Psychology is the science focusing on the positive aspects of human life, happiness and well-being. Resilience-building skills such as how to develop a growth mindset and how to develop an attitude of gratitude are seamlessly integrated into our programmes to build the happiness muscle.
2) Neuro-Linguistic - Programming (NLP)
NLP describes the fundamental dynamic between Mind ( Neuro) and Language (Linguistic), and how their interplay affects our body and behaviour (Programming). Communication and self – mastery skills such as how to be in control of the internal thought processes that guide emotions, habits, and behaviours help children and adults achieve sync between their minds and their bodies through their language.
3) Music & Movement
Research has shown that children exposed to the arts and music are more likely to fare better in academic, math and sciences. They also possess more self-confidence, higher social skills and have better physical and motor coordination. Our music, dance and creative drama activities have consistently resulted in improvements in the child's and adult’s ability to express himself/herself spontaneously and creatively.
4) Yoga Play
The myriad benefits of yoga are well documented. Physical strengthening, improved motor control and coordination accompany mental calmness and focus. Age appropriate breathing exercises, physical postures and visualisation skills are woven into our programmes to enhance health and well being of both adult and child.
Research indicates that mindfulness practices help us increase our ability to regulate emotions, decrease stress and anxiety. Our programmes incorporate age-appropriate mindfulness activities to improve self-regulation, focus, peace of mind, compassion and self-care with these powerful practices.
6) Whole brain learning
We employ active learning strategies to engage the mind, body and emotions to maximize learners participation and ignite a love for learning. Such strategies are not limited to the inclusion of music as an instructional tool, movement to promote retention, chunking new information, repetition, and engaging multiple senses simultaneously.
For the past 14 years, we have empowered more than 10,000 parents, children, and educators. In 2016, we became the first enrichment programme provider for Singapore's first inclusive preschool at the Enabling Village, Kindle Garden.
We firmly hold the view that parents and teachers have a higher potential to create an empowering environment to help children thrive when they are aware of their unconscious dis-empowering habits.We provide consultations and coaching for parents as well as customized corporate training led by our founder, Ms Hasnah AR. Since 1995, her vast experience in holistic education includes coaching & training parents, teachers, educational leaders, counsellors and therapists working with children from infants to teens

Our customer's positive experience
Positive Focus has embarked on a whole new journey for me as a parent and an educator.
The Positive Focus Impact Training (P.F.I.T) is very practical and useful for parents and educators.
Children can relate well to the curriculum because it is engaging, fun and wholesome. E.g., Body Alphabet, Animal Safari Yoga Play, Neuro - Linguistic programming, Music and Movement etc.
The mentorship I received as an educator is priceless. Educators are put to the test in the real world to get us ready for a bigger challenge. I found the experience highly beneficial for me.
The Goulding Process is amazing; it is the best gift every parent can give to their child to develop their self - esteem.
My children and I have benefitted much from the programs. You can feel the positive vibes from the Trainer, Miss Has. Highly recommended for parents and educators.

Carolina Bouza Rodriguez - Early Childhood Educator
When I first met the exuberant Miss Has through Kindermusik 14 years ago, it was an immediately impactful encounter. She was a very experienced and fun educator to my then 6-months young daughter. Later on, when miss Has embarked on establishing Positive Focus, my daughter and I naturally followed suit. After attending the P.F.I.T. (Positive Focus Impact Training), my life changed for the better. I was empowered with profound and deep knowledge to make decisions on life, parenting, my educator journey, and in a myriad and multitude of other ways. As for my teenager, I believe that we have much to thank for the powerfully positive guidance we received in her early childhood years through Kindermusik and Positive Focus.

Ms. Has, at first, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for your unconditional love, support, encouragement, and patience during my learning journey based on a holistic approach in a dynamic environment. It was a wonderful journey towards a Transformational change as an Educator and Parent, with impactful training imparted at Positive Focus.
Thank you for being my guiding light and encouraging me throughout my journey. You have helped me to identify my weaknesses and turned them into my strengths. I will always be grateful for your valuable input and investment in my life. I consider myself most fortunate to learn from you and your invaluable vast experience as a Mentor/ Coach. It is a blessing to have such a passionate, enthusiastic and energetic Trainer / Coach/ Mentor like you in my life.
I would like to add here that you are amazingly an incredible Coach for adults. Moreover, your Positive kid's program at Positive Focus has helped my own child including many other children in creating their future with a positive connotation.
The most important lesson I have learned with all the training under your guidance is, how we become very conscious, mindful and aware of our own competence. Your constant motivation and encouragement pushed me to the greater heights; I never thought would be possible for me. In addition to this, it also helped me to improve my mind and body synchronicity.
You have been an exemplary and visionary mentor with your incredibly valuable wisdom and an inspiration, a great leader who has dedicated her life to the service of humanity to make the world a better place for children and families. As an entrepreneur, your achievements have been remarkable.
I appreciate and treasure everything I have learned from you.
I’m grateful to have you as my Mentor.
Nirupama Soni - Parent of 10 year old boy- Founder of Synergy Locus, Accredited Goulding Process -Sleeptalk Consultant for children. Reiki Teacher,
I found it very helpful to have a good understanding of the functions of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Our tone of voice in classroom can determine which nervous system we are addressing in a child. It will either cause him/her to experience greater anxiety or to relax, breathe and learn. I'm learning to use the right tone of voice in my class and how to use it in various situation and have noticed that it not only affects the children but also the teachers. Personally, I appreciate the "Sandwich Feedback" which we received during the training by Hasnah. Her course offered on-the-spot learning and interaction, which stimulates my brain to learn and absorb the information."
- Selina Wong, Preschool Teacher, PCF Sparkletots Taman Jurong
"I've learnt discipline techniques for my child, through the educator's observation, has been very helpful. I really enjoy her classes and it has helped in my daughter's development.”
- Marina, Teacher, Parent
"The phonic course instructor Ms Has was just amazing in the way she conducted the class. The way she combined delivering course materials sprinkled generously with practical tips and effective activities (songs, strategies, brain body methods etc) from her own experience is something only the best of instructors can do. Can’t thank you enough!”
- Shrimadhy Hariharan , Student - GIG Education Centre – The Teacher Developer
“THANK YOU** from the bottom of my heart Ms Has for the knowledge you have imparted during the short 8 weeks with you. I have learnt much and was able to apply what I learnt immediately into my business. And I am now able to speak with greater conviction with parents from an educator’s perspective and always stand from the point for the good of the child/learner. I have benefited much from her delivery. Good curriculum can only go far with good delivery and so my only regrets is not being able to carry on learning from her on a long term basis but nonetheless her positive learning attitude has certainly rubbed off hard on me and will see me go a long way too!"
- Tina Wong, Student - GIG Education Centre – The Teacher Developer
