Salam and greetings dear mommies
Today is my dear darling Damia’s first day in Raniya. I’ve been long thinking of sending her here, after been recommended by my fellow colleague in the office. One of my friend+neighbour also send their kids there. So you can see why i decided, at last, to agree to send her there.
Before that, i must make clear that sending my precious little angle to the taska (or any nursery or playschool, whatever there is out there) does’nt make me proud at all, as a mom. As honest as i can say, i really want my dear little honey to be home with me. To raise her with my own hand, the safest hand she could be with. To teach her about life, as the best teacher she could ever have. To feed her with the best food cook with lots of nutritions and love. To be with her exploring the world she yet to know. But how can that be possible when i myself not even home? Uhh, this is really a sensitive topic to me. Gotta work smarter and realize my WAHM target soon!
Now let me share with you about Taska Raniya. It is located in a double-storey bungalow in Datuk Keramat, very near to Lanai Gurney/Gurney Height Condominium. Taska Raniya accept baby from the age of 3 months old to children up to 6 years old. There’s also transit child but only for those kids who have been with Raniya since they’re babies.
Taska Raniya apply/practice the Glen Doman method (i’ll write more about Glen Doman method in my future entry ). He, through researches and experiences, propose that ‘there are just five pathways into the brain and everything Leonardo learned in his life, or you in yours, or I in mine, or your baby in his or hers, we have learned through those five pathways. Those five pathways are: seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, and smelling. Never forget that when you are giving a child visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation with increased frequency, intensity, and duration that you are actually physically growing his brain’.
This morning when i and my dear hubby registered our little honey Damia, we were given the weekly activity time-table. Let me list it down here for the benefit of you dear readers. Who knows, some mommies out there can use or copy this to plan activities for their adorable little munchkins ;p

Do you see it too much for an 11-months old? Depends how you see it. For me, i see it very interesting! Well, everyone walks a different life, and you know what best for your kids. I believe i do too.
This week’s theme is ‘MY BODY’. Parents are encourage to promote the theme at home too and make it the topic of conversation for the whole week to increase the kids understanding. Hmm got to stick Damia’s fun room’s wall with photos of the body parts. Yeay~ i’m so excited!
I’ll let my dear little angel get along with her new venture and see how she’ll be doing. I always pray for her best.
mmuahs-mmuahs for your lil’ baby too!
Will update soon!
