Both my 4 year old and 14 months old go to the class since the last term. I can see their increasing interests on participation at each class, most importantly they really enjoy the content. I really appreciate the one on one one spent with the little ones & tell you what, sometimes I learn a few things too!

Shichida is such a great program for little brains. It is so stimulating and so much fun. I love the way they challenge the brain without stressing out my kids. Kids learn from playing. We have been to Shichida for two years so far and will be still going in the future. My daughter who is now 3 starting to contribute more in class. When she sees the fallen leaves on the street, she will sing the song that Shichida taught her. She enjoys in the class, and 50 minutes seem long but not so long. What a fantastic program for young little brains!

Both my son and daughter started with Shichida since 1 year old. They really enjoy Shichida teaching method and get along with their teacher, especially my son who still remember all his previous teacher that taught him before. If time allow I will definitely let them complete the entire course.

My daughter has attended Shichida since she was 3. She loves the classes and teachers. Shichida creates fun learning environment and great foundation for children before they starts school. My daughter's reading is great because of Shichida.

My son has been doing the shichida program since he was 14months old. I love this program as it is fun, creative in how it delivers all it's beautiful content. I have several of the packs and toys at home which we play on school holidays and I find it so helpful with his school work as well. I have and would recommend this program to everyone. I wish we had found the program when my son was 6 months old as I would have started him earlier. I love the fact that my son's favorite activities at school are Maths and Art which I put down to the Shichida program.

Parents share their Shichida experience…

“My son joined Shichida when he was 5 years old. My husband and I are both very happy with his progress. Now my son is a happy, positive and confident child who loves and enjoys learning. After attending Shichida classes, we realised that the program not only benefits the child, but also teaches parents how to raise a child happily and successfully.”

– Miranda & Daniel (son, Shichida Graduate 2016)

“Thank you for the wonderful experiences that you have given Luke over the last 7 years at Shichida. The skills he has learnt through Shichida will last through his entire life. You have really helped and encouraged Luke to achieve such great things… Shichida has been such a huge part of our lives, we will really miss it.”

– Mark, Emily & Luke (son)

“I’ve noticed my daughter does remember things quite well, she can listen to songs only a few times and she remembers the tunes and the lyrics. She is one of the few kids in her class who can read at her age. Callum can count to 10. He sings the alphabet and he knows his colours and his shapes. He will sing along, it’s just play for him. There’s not that many programs out there for young kids, and you know why not? It doesn’t hurt them and they enjoy it. It does help them to develop to the best of their potential and their ability. They do an amazing amount of stuff in that one hour that I could not do at home with them.”

– Jane, Caitlyn (daughter) & Callum (son)

“Chloe has been attending Shichida Australia since she was 18 months old. I first heard about it on TV and thought it looked like an interesting program – mainly because it worked on skills like visualisation techniques, fine motor skills, confidence building and fun aspects of learning that didn’t seem to be offered in any other activities… This has really stimulated her learning, improved her concentration and helped her prepare for the transition to school. Shichida also gave us the tools to be able to incorporate opportunities for learning into everyday life – this has been incredibly helpful. The first time we realised that Chloe knew her numbers and letters was when my husband was out washing the car. He could hear her mumbling away and went to check up on her. She was just two at the time, and was reading our car’s licence plate!”

– Emily & Chloe (daughter)
