Kids Hub promotes the holistic development of children. 

But, what is the meaning of holism and what is holistic education?

Holism

Holism (from ὂλος holos, a Greek word meaning all, whole, entire, total) is the idea that all the properties of a given system (physical, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic, etc.) cannot be determined or explained by its component parts alone. Instead, the system as a whole determines in an important way how the parts behave.

Holistic Education

Holistic education is a philosophy of education based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to humanitarian values such as compassion and peace.

Holistic education aims to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning. This is the definition given by Ron Miller, founder of the journal Holistic Education Review (now entitled Encounter: Education for Meaning and Social Justice).

The term holistic education is often used to refer to the more democratic and humanistic types of alternative education. Robin Ann Martin (2003) describes this further by stating, “At its most general level, what distinguishes holistic education from other forms of education are its goals, its attention to experiential learning, and the significance that it places on relationships and primary human values within the learning environment.” (Paths of Learning)

Our Holistic Education Approach

Kids Hub's founder - Daphne Fan - lives and grows up in Singapore - a very competitive country (also a city).  She strongly believes that parents should:

  1. Develop children with strong foundation skills and good discipline when they are young, preferably by 8 years old
  2. Use play to enhance learning and development of skills

Although Daphne's academic results was reasonably good, she feels that the approach can be improved.  She would like to make education an enjoyable process for the students.  While there are more rooms of improvement, Daphne was please to observe many Schools in Singapore is already applying the holistic education approach.

The Birth of Money Champ Program

However, Daphne found one missing skill that is not taught in Schools - money management skills.

Daphne's painful financial setback in her 30's led to her strong belief of the need of improving money management skills of children.

From her expeience, the earlier we start financial education with children, the higher the rate of success in develop financial savvy individuals.  This led to the creation of Money Champ Program - A holistic education platform for imparting money management skills to children from 4 to 12 years old.
