Positive Focus® Programmes
Positive Focus® programmes are founded on the philosophy that a child's development must be balanced and well-rounded. What sets us apart is our focus on all 3 major elements of a child's development, namely the intelligence, physical, and emotional quotients. We believe in the holistic development of the child's mind (IQ), body (PQ), as well as behaviour and emotions (EQ).
Our programmes incorporate 6 proven methodologies:
Yoga for children
Music & Movement
Whole Brain Learning
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 Has A.R. 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.
She acts as an educational consultant and previously hosted all 3 televised seasons of CLUB M.A.G.I.C, Singapore's first preschool TV programme, as Miss Positive on Okto channel. She is also a trainer for teachers and consultants for the following competency-based professional development programmes:
Trainer for GIG Education Centre – The Teacher Developer for the Certificate of Professional Practice (Phonics, Early Literacy and reading comprehension, Music and Movement and Creative Drama, accredited by London Teacher Training College, UK
Consultant Trainer for The Goulding Process Sleeptalk™ - The Proven Parent Solution. Self - Esteem Program for Children, accredited by The International Association of Counselors and Therapists, a premier association for holistic practitioners.
“It is not just about knowing; it is how we apply that knowledge.
Many parents and teachers are well-informed, yet they may not have developed the skills or habits to put what they learn into practice to help children as intended. It is the translation of knowledge into purposeful action that makes the difference.”
Ms Has A.R, Founder of Positive Focus®
Positive Focus® began its journey 24 years ago when Ms Has, a struggling single mother and educator, discovered her son's unique learning needs. That was the beginning of her extensive holistic learning journey, picking up a myriad of internationally recognised certifications.
Today, her son is currently enrolled in the Yale-NUS (liberal arts) / NUS Law (law), Double Degree and is a member of MENSA and the Triple-Nine IQ Society.
With her radiant, positive energy that parents and children love, Ms Has (as she is affectionately known) is also an inspiration to fellow educators. She believes in empowering both children and adult learners with positive tools to boost happiness, resilience and well-being through holistic education.
