PRESCHOOL SEMINAR 2017

"It takes a village to raise a child"

 

Back by popular demand for the 4th year, the Preschool Seminar 2017 is a seminar organised by Preschool professionals from Specialised Educational Needs (SES), a division of the Dyslexia Association of Singapore. 

Preschool practitioners from the Dyslexia Association of Singapore will share about educating the young ones and also tips and tricks to support the weaker learners. Featuring two keynote speakers who will discuss transitioning to primary school as well as social skills for children, the Preschool Seminar 2017 also includes 4 breakout workshops in various topics.

Join us for the Preschool Seminar 2017 if you are a parent, educator or stakeholder working with children who may benefit from some of these learning strategies.
