Learning Fresh has always been committed to delivering relevance and purpose towards our teachings and initiatives. Teaching beyond the use of textbooks, we engage ourselves actively with the community to guide and lead our students towards excellence and being responsible role models ourselves.
Learning Fresh works on real-life initiatives and collaboration with other organizations in order to provide relevant teaching platforms for our students. With this in mind, our students enjoy and understand the rationality behind learning and are able to express themselves in their truest forms.
Our students are not only able to express themselves eloquently, but they are also shaped to become conscious, responsive and committed individuals - and that's the underlying foundation to build higher levels of confidence from within.
Below are some of the projects and initiatives our students have worked on with these organizations for which we are thankful for, as they enabled our students to learn with a purpose.
Dearest Melissa & Learning Fresh Academy,
We really want to thank you for the incredible difference Learning Fresh has made in my son’s lives, particularly to Melissa. Melissa has found his gifts, created the positive environment, and allowed those gifts to flourish. She has taught Ghibran to love learning and has built sound foundations for him. Ghibran was 6 years old with some learning challenges when he was first brought to Melissa. He has short attention span, speech delay and milestone delay. Melissa understood the obstacles and broke through them to help him and us realize his potential. Today, our son speaks perfectly and his academic level is impressive!
It is amazing how much he has learned in such a short period of time. It is evident that because of the very low teacher to student ratio, the sincere passion from within, and the individual attention to each individual child's learning needs can develop children to their greatest potential. Most importantly, the dedicated teachers committed to guiding us and our son through the pre-school experience and beyond.
Melissa has made a profound difference in our son lives and in ours. Ghibran is 8 years old now and over 2 years with Leaning Fresh. As a mother, I look at Ghibran today – mind, body, spirit and potential – and realized he is where he is today on account of Melissa’s & his teachers’ efforts. No words will ever be adequate to thank Melissa and her teachers enough. Please know how incredibly grateful we are for your commitment to Ghibran and the many, many others you pour your energies into each day. Melissa and her teachers have further helped him build the necessary self-esteem and confidence for a child to succeed.
More, Learning Fresh has never failed to provide a warm and nurturing environment for Ghibran, strong academic support and outstanding educational foundation that prepare children well not only for education but for life. The continuous personal touch Melissa has put forward to Ghibran on the overall aspect of him was way beyond. The learning at Learning Fresh is deep and personal. We never would have imagined we would have found an enrichment Centre so nurturing and intellectually stimulating and it has honestly been hard to match this experience.
Our second son, Rayyan is 4 yrs now and will soon join the great learning experience from Learning Fresh. Mikhail will soon follow his 2 brothers when he turns 3 yrs in March 2016 – well, he might join Learning Fresh even earlier!
We will forever be indebted to Melissa & her team for what she and her Academy did for Ghibran and am sure the same learning experience will pass on to my other two boys.

My son has a speech delay. I wish to get an English center for him to involve more in communication with others same age of children. So I enrolled him in Learning Fresh in November 2014. Teachers are very understanding. My son looks forward to attend class every weekend. By now, he is able to to ask questions like “where” and “what”. He can even tell “is over there!” For me, this is some improvements that I can see. Sometimes he can even praise someone by saying “Yes, good job”. I really appreciate the teachers and I shall continue to let him stay with Learning Fresh.
I cannot say enough good things about the teachers in Learning Fresh and the programmes! My girl who went through the programme loved it so much! All the kids have smiley faces at pick up time. They had a lot of fun and yet learned a ton. My girl was very shy and entered Learning Fresh at a tender age of 2.5 years old. The teachers guide her to learn new things. They teach and model positive behaviour such as being mindful of others, self control, constructively communicating with each other, etc. They made learning fun and interesting.
The results are fantastic. We saw a lot of growth in our daughter after only a few months and were delighted with how much she had learned. We are seeing positive results with our daughter now and highly recommend Learning Fresh. Learning Fresh had been very good to us and for us. Thank you!

Learning Fresh has provided a creative learning platform for my 5 year old girl. She always looks forward to the classes, to see her lovely friends and dedicated teachers. I can see obvious improvement in her English too, as she is able to converse more confidently after just attending a few classes!
As a parent, I’d always wanted to give my children a head start in their learning journey. English is one of the language which I personally think that they should have a very strong foundation, be it in speaking or writing. It is one of the most important communication skill that can led an individual to further extend when ones is in the social world.
I have been scouting for a few centres before enrolling my two girls, Siau Ching (8) and Siau Pei (7) in Learning Fresh. I’m happy to have settled them in Learning Fresh as they love going to the classes.
The deliberate and holistic approach of the programme has opened up a lot of opportunities for my girls to expose them themselves in many ways such as public speaking, role-playing etc which in a way, has enabled the, to become a more confident person. Apart from this, my girls learnt to think and write creatively which is at a higher level than what they are taught at school.
Choosing a learning centre is not just about preparing our children for examinations within the standardized academic subjects but to expose them in other platforms as a whole whilst mastering their English language.
I am grateful to say that Learning Fresh provides such programmes to my girls. It is certainly a learning centre which I will highly recommend.
