A mix of local and international teaching techniques, The Great Leap Academy in Brgy. Holy Spirit Drive, Quezon City is a sanctuary of sorts when it comes to early childhood education. The first of its kind in the country inspired from multiple learning disciplines, the Great Leap Academy also implements quality play-based, interest-based, and literacy-based programs that are holistic in nature, and are scientifically proven to finely hone a child’s development.
Since holistic education is a crucial part in the formative years of a child, investing in an enrichment education should not be frowned upon as it could set the path of your child’s future. Also, at The Great Leap Academy, most of the programs and curricula are internationally acquired and relevant for the modern times. Moreover, the approach used in this center is nothing but developmentally appropriate and features internationally research-based programs. The center also integrates out of the box teaching style, and it serves as an awesome venue for homeschoolers and afterschoolers to meet new friends in a fun, safe, and age-appropriate facility. Apart from its unique structure, the participation of parents or guardians is highly encouraged in this type of teaching environment that effectively taps all of the child’s domains of development: physical, cognitive, social, and emotional. This approach is also something not run-off-the-mill as the school’s environment encourages closer relationship between child and parent or guardian, which are effective aids in brain development of each child, helps in over-all progress monitoring, and in forming relationships and deepening bonding in the family.
Designed to assist in the development of the mental ability, talent, and practical skills of a growing child. The Great Leap Academy’s internationally-recognized academic and artistic enrichment programs aim to bring out as well positive outcomes across all areas of development from health and nutrition, social interaction, cognitive and school achievement. As an enrichment school, the structure allows a child to focus on a particular subject or program based on his area of weakness or interest conveniently offered in one location. A child having a difficulty in math but finds pleasure in dancing? There’s Mighty Math, a Singaporean technique facilitated by highly skilled instructors using principles that are stimulating according to his ability and not grade level. As a dance lover, your child will surely find a fun balance with ballet lesson, an extra curricular activity facilitated by an equally passionate professional. To make the packaging even more prestigious, all international programs were franchised in the US, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, which all currently an exclusive offer at The Great Leap Academy.

And whether or not parents decide to enroll their child in full time courses, The Great Leap Academy’s gamut of academic and artistic programs are a long-term investment for the child, family and the entire community. Instructors are board passers and internationally accredited with stringent trainings from franchised programs, so parents can take confidence on their character and skills that bring about positive facilitation for their young children.
“We are happy to pioneer this modern and practical approach to teaching in the Philippines which specifically addresses the child’s unique needs and interests. This method took us awhile to embrace, but we’re confident that now is the high time to fully integrate after school support programs for kinder to grade 8; programs which require children to touch, try, and to think creatively”, says The Great Leap Academy and Executive Director and Music Teacher Roqzanne Tan.
