Bringing Joy Back To Learning
The education system in Singapore is arguably one of the most rigorous in the world. Students (and parents!) are stressed out by quantity and difficulty of the material they have to master.
While we acknowledge that rigour is important and that there is no easy way for students to go about this, we believe the process makes all the difference. Yes, learning new things is always tough, but in the hands of the right teacher, learning is an enjoyable process!
So, that's the mission we've given ourselves: to bring joy back to learning.
Joyous Learning is made up of a group of like-minded and capable educators who care about the overall well-being and development of our young charges. We believe that happy and motivated students learn better, which eventually translates into better results. Designing and delivering lessons that creatively engage students requires more a lot more effort and energy than administering standard drills, but it's all worth it. Our students' results and their parents tell us so!
Well deserved full star rating.
My girl attended the Nov school holiday writing class for P3 which is a 4 days program.
The marked worksheets of dd's compo were with constructive feedback. I had a discussion with the teacher and she pinpointed dd's weak areas. The framework of this program is favourable for us. Thank you Mrs Ang!
Dd also enjoyed the one day Science holiday class. The approach for the answering technique is a great input. Will refer again once the term starts for 2019.
Had been following J.L. on Facebook before this program, and will continue to keep in touch with the programs offered.

We picked Joyous mainly because we heard that Joyous Team was previously from a renowned tuition brand where GEP and PSLE results were record high. We heard good reviews about the teachers as well. They are indeed nurturing and above all, put in great effort in their teaching. My child looks forward going to his Science lessons every Wednesday night. All thanks to Mr Mag as my child comes home with full marks every time. Another plus point is that the class size is kept small to maximize student and teacher interaction.
My son, Reagan is with Joyous Learning for Thinking Writer and Science. Having been with a few enrichment centres, he simply loves Joyous Learning. Most importantly is that he has been enjoying the lessons very much from the start in Jan this year.The teachers are awesome and engaging and that contributed to Reagan's enthusiasm in attending the classes. They provide feedbacks to parents on child's learning and I am still monitoring his progress. My sincere thanks to the teachers!

I've tried mathematics enrichment for my daughter at several centres. To me, mathematics is quite straightforward. Just drill all the way. So was pleasantly surprised by the small little things they do in class to make lessons more interesting. One activity I remember in particular was the forex exchange game they played in class when they were learning the topic of money. My girl was happy cos she exchanged the most amount of "joyous dollars" at the end. Haha!

Here are what some parents say about lessons @ Joyous Learning.
My P3 son attended Joyous GEP class since the beginning of the year, and thus far it has been great. My son is the type who never likes school, or tuition, etc. But surprisingly he likes joyous classes. I think the lessons at joyous, as the name indicates, are truly joyous :) I'd recommend this center to other parents looking for fun and engaging enrichment for their kids.

I enrolled my girl to Joyous Learning in early of this year. Actually my intention is not to push her into GEP. I wanted my girl to explore more and broaden her horizons, learn the different ways how to think instead of fixed ways taught at school. She was very excited to share with me the various creative ways of solving difficult problems she learnt from the teachers, who were very kind, patient and humorous. My girl and I believe Joyous Learning really focuses on inspiring and guiding children to think independent. We love Joyous learning. Thank you teachers. We definitely love to recommend you and Joyous Learning to everyone.
