The Heguru Method nurtures kids to be positive, confident and happy learners, with better memory skills that will enable them to learn at an accelerated pace.
When Agnes Ng was expecting her first child nine years, she read about right-brain training and discovered the Heguru Method programme in Japan.
Curious about how it could help kids develop a superior photographic memory and improve their concentration, she flew to Japan to meet the Heguru Method founders, Mr and Mrs Henmi. The couple had spent the previous 30 years refining the Heguru method of right-brain training.
Agnes decided to bring the programme to Singapore. Today, she is the principal of Heguru Method, Singapore, which has centres at HarbourFront and Choa Chu Kang. She holds a master’s in education in Early Childhood from the National Institute of Education (NIE), with a specialised focus on the educational development of newborns to children aged eight.
Agnes runs the school with two vice-principals (who are also mums) – Rachel Pei, who has a Professional Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education (Kindergarten Teaching), and Claire Ng, a former primary school teacher who holds a master’s in education in Early Childhood from NIE.
What is the Heguru Method?
Right-brain training revolutionises the way young children learn and is thought to be foundational to other forms of enrichment.
Both the left and right sides of the brain process information differently: the left is in charge of logic, reasoning and language and processes information slowly, while the right brain is associated with creativity, expression, intuition and memory and processes information quickly.
A balanced and successful individual should develop both sides of their brain equally.
The Heguru Method programmes tap on right-brain training from a young age, as this is when the brain can quickly process vast amounts of information intuitively. This in turn helps boost the function of the left brain when the child is later exposed to traditional learning methods.
Programmes for babies to 12-year-olds
Heguru Method @ HarbourFront and Choa Chu Kang – co-founded by Agnes, Rachel and Claire– is licensed by HEGL to introduce HEGL educational programmes that focus on right-brain development training for children in Singapore.
The Heguru Method has three programmes for cognitive development. The Infant and Toddler programme, for six-month-olds to three-year-olds, focuses on building the dominant right brain. The Preschool programme, for four- to six-year-olds, stimulates the developing left brain while maintaining the growth of the right brain.
The Primary School programme, for seven- to 12-year-olds, looks to integrate both left and right brain development. All the activities are designed to tap into each child’s “genius potential”.
The teachers at Heguru Method @ HarbourFront and Choa Chu Kang make all the difference to the success of the programmes. After an intensive two-week training period by Mr and Mrs Henmi and their team in Japan, back in Singapore, their theoretical and practical knowledge are supplemented with weekly training sessions.
Heguru Method is located at: #03-09/10/49 HarbourFront Centre and #02-03/04 Choa Chu Kang Centre, tel: 6466-6580 or 9182-4381. For more information visit www.hegurumethod.com.sg or www.facebook.com/hegurumethod.
