About Positive Focus
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
