In order words, what we do is that when we catch them young like this we try as much as possible to expose them to lots of things like music, instruments, dance and other extracurricular activities including Computer and information technology.”

Most of them are Microsoft Office Certified. If you go online you will see them all there. The exam is suppose to be for undergraduates and graduates but at the age 9 and 10, my kids were able to sit for the exam and passed.
So parents and teachers really need to bring out time to educate their kids beyond classrooms and as well try as much as possible to expose them to other creative education to better enhance their knowledge as well as provide them with another platform to explore.” She said
