What is Galileo Enrichment?
– a math and english after school program for improvement/enhancing the quality and value of a child’s intellect.
“The Galileo Enrichment Learning Program is a meaningful, exciting, and fun enrichment program for children ages 3 to 12.” The objective of the program is to offers an alternative learning experience for children, with a creative approach.
“The program employs the Telescopic Method, which brings out the individual and unique potential of each child.” It fine-tunes the skills according to a child’s abilities.The center utilizes various techniques that enhance the learner’s auditory, kinesthetic, visual and critical thinking skills. Galileo employs 5 strategies to concretize learning, tailored to a child’s needs.
Got hold of a 2-Week Scholarship for Math or English program from the Blogapalooza last September 2011. I was particularly interested in the presentor’s 5-minute introduction. A brief case study – comparison between traditional mathematics and Singapore math. Sometime in 2009, I already made inquiries from Kumon for my kid [3 years old then] and was advised to think about it, or better yet I may get back to them when she was already enrolled academically as a back-up system for her analytical and critical thinking. We’re not putting aside Kumon though we are open for other alternative centers to give it a try.
Galileo Centers could either be school-based or stand-alone centers. A friend of ours told us that Galileo is co-owned by Sacred Heart School, thus most of its centers can be found in SHS. The nearest location I conveniently visited to make inquiries was in Diliman Preparatory School in Commonwealth Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City. I went through the school’s Executive Office, I spoke to a lady staff member and unknowingly the Facilitator or any other Galileo representative wasn’t around on a Monday morning. I got hold of the center’s schedules through my own effort, and went through their assigned Galileo single-classroom and shot photos discreetly and jotted down notes from outside the main door.

Galileo Center Schedules:
Tuesday and Thursday – 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Saturday – 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Diliman Preparatory School offered it twice a week and an adjusted time on weekends. Felt a little hopeless to use the free-2 weeks , the first point was my child’s school schedule on ELC [Early Literacy Clinic] was from 10-12 slots. Second point was, on Saturdays we could just not wake her up, a child needs 12 hours of sleep, it’s her re-charging period to cope up with the lost sleeping time from the early mornings of school days. We’ll give it a second thought when we have the extra time.
What I liked with Diliman Preparatory School was the outdoor playground for toddlers and the wooden benches for waiting parents and guardians were so cool I wanted to bring it home. 🙂
