"Hi, I am glad that i chose Engage Minds Learning centre. I can see there are a lot of improvements with Aryan.. He begins to speak more clearly.. When we were on our way back home, Aryan saw smokes coming up the sky.. and he said "Fire, fire, fire..." we were surprised . He loves to say "please" and always ask for something politely. He loves to count and sing along with the all the songs he hears. Every time he wakes up, he said, "Good Morning Mummy.." 🙂 He is getting more talkative nowadays. He loves to go to school now.. no more complains.. It is good that you limit the number of students and with more teachers in class to interact with the students and giving them more attention. Thank you for your good work.."

“My husband and I are pleased with the Preschool Programme; with its nurturing, creative and thoughtful environment. The teachers are wonderful, patient and encouraging. The child/teacher ratio is perfect as well as having the right combination of structural and free/play time. In a short span of time, Maya's social skills with other kids has improved and is able to better express herself as well. Maya loves school, her teachers and friends so much that she would go every day if she could! A big thank you to all.”
Madeline Ting, Son in Term 2
"I am glad that I made the right choice of first enrolling Francis in Engage Minds Learning, and secondly let him continue for he second phase till end of this year. There is a lot of improvement I see in Francis. His love for being read a book, engaging in role playing, singing etc. And your center is full of treasures! Books, mind trigger games, physical activities and costumes. And the best part is the number of students per class u limit, and the so-many teachers u put in one class for more face-to-face interactions per student. Thank you and your teachers for the effort put in. Well done to all of you."
Mahran’s Sister, Sibling in Speech Therapy
"Well done @engage_minds_learning. So proud of this achievement and yes, it looks very simple but, it is actually an amazing achievement. Took years to actually for him to write his name without any help. Your technique proves it well. Well done Mahran and @engage_minds_learning."
Aishah, Daughter in Term 2
"The Early Childhood Programme has an amazing phonics, literacy and mathematics curriculum that allows children to learn at their own pace. I see the improvement on a daily basis in the way my daughter is discovering her abilities, not only to recite number and alphabet patterns but to also recognize these in the world around her i.e. pointing out words and numbers on signs and in books and being able to tell me exactly what they are.
Within Sumaiyah’s classroom there is a strong emphasis on peer support and encouragement. As such, Sumaiyah’s socialization skills have evolved to a point whereby she is taking children under her wing and guiding them in classroom activities. This teaching approach, by Engage Minds Learning, ensures a unified class and more importantly confident and happy children who embrace the studies they are undertaking."

"Hi Cristina. On behalf of my husband and I, Alhamdulilah, we made the right decision sending Lana for the longer programme. Even though she is not part of EML anymore, I believe it is from your school she lets out her creativity, makes her own songs, writes stories and as the comment above, helped to foster her love for reading.
With gratitude and trust, we send Iman. For him, he loves to read more now, doing Playdoh and painting activities. His vocabularies are growing too. And more importantly, the interaction with the children is truly priceless to help them with their social skills. Alhamdulilah and thank you!"
Andrea Ong, Son in Term 3
"Engage Minds Learning has a lot to offer compared to other schools. Size of class is definitely one. Resources is number two. And the facilities – it may be a small place but there is plenty to do. They're very creative in terms of how the programme is laid out. For example, Numicon, I've never heard of it before, and they use Numicon for Maths. And the kids can actually grasp it easier due to the visual aids and things like that. Compared to other schools, what stands out is definitely class size. There’s nowhere else in Brunei where there’s seven kids in one class with two teachers."
Farah Kong, Son in Term 1
"Both my kids love this place. Not only do they have fun, they learn a lot too! I am always glad I checked out this place when it first started. great place and keep up the good work!"
Dinah Ali, Son in Term 3
"I absolutely believe that the programme was really effective. I’m so happy that he is happy here. I didn’t expect him to learn as much as he can – he can read on his own for example with hardly any assistance. It gives us little to at home because he in fact reads his own bedtime stories now."
Andrea Ong, Son in Term 3
"If any of you have preschool kids and want to give them a head start in their schooling, this is the place to be. My Rayyan went to EML for 2 years and he has learnt so much. Their resources are second to none and their teachers are well-trained in their field. Also where else in Brunei will you get class sizes of 7 - 8 kids only. If only they had a primary programme we would stay and let Rayyan continue his education there. Love it @engage_minds_learning"
Donald, child in Preschool Programme
"Engage Minds Learning is the best preschool in Brunei! We love all the teachers and staff at Engage Minds Learning. Thank you Engage Minds Learning for existing in Brunei! My children are so fortunate to be part of Engage Minds Learning"
