Supervisor Mr Lee’s Talk – July 17th, 2010

Good Evening; parents, principal, teachers, and children.

Although children would cry and laugh continuously, or fall down and get up relentlessly, we know they will always move forward. Children have the powerful forces to drive changes required for their growth because they are the continuation of time on earth.

In general, some educators and parents would very much concern children’s growth and progress, and because of this concern, they would usually like to measure children’s well beings in terms of success. In order to measure success, children are judged upon how much they have learned to know and compare children with their peer to see who is better than the other.

So, may I ask? What is success? Well, it’s simple. Success is Love.  Love is you know you can do all those things during the day when you first open your eyes in the morning. We want our young children to have love to be able to do all those things that are lined up for them to do during the day and the love to come home after school feeling much confident with which the child’s facial expression is showing happiness. Therefore, the principal’s, the teachers’ and my utmost important job is to help our young children to build and maintain love, because when a child has love, the child is already successful at the very young age and ready to move onward from the child’s beginning.

An important factor to help children build that love is a bilateral communication. That’s why we have been working hard to build and maintain bilateral communication with our young children and with the parents as well. Taking photos and videos of our young children on a regular basis and showing these photos and videos with a theme both to the children themselves and their parents serve one of the best ways to establish such bilateral communication with children and the parents. This also explains why we have been taking photos and videos of all our young children on a regular basis; it all serves a simple but very important purpose, we are open and want to have that communication with you. So, what are the good things about communication? Well, communication helps clear misunderstanding among children, parents, and us; it is problem solving; it helps us to better understand our children and to help our children’s behavioral acts and coping; furthermore, communication helps parents to understand their children even more.

I would like to take this opportunity to briefly talk about the importance of early childhood education – some people call it ‘first 5’ education. Research has found that: First, the brain develops rapidly during the first five years and quality preschool programs can have a profound impact during this time. Second, children who attend a quality preschool do better in elementary school and beyond, and have more success in reading and math. Third, as they grow, children who attended preschool are more likely to graduate from high school and find good jobs, and less likely to be involved in crime.

For the moment during the process, we can only see the flow of children changes and we are sure there will be many questions in the process; we don’t know all the answers to the questions but for certain I would like to tell you, we want to help, we want to help these young children change and grow from as far front of the beginning toward the longest extension of time. We are fundamentally dedicated to help children grow forward.
