Times Learning+ - Your partner in children’s learning
Singapore, 12 November 2011 – Today marks a new milestone in the 43-year history of Times Publishing Group with the launch of Times Learning+, a brand new education-focused retail centre envisioned to be a partner to parents with school-going kids. This all-encompassing quality education resource location will house an extensive range of educational materials including those of the renowned Marshall Cavendish brand – the publisher of “My Pals are Here!“ textbooks.
At Times Learning+, children are encouraged to discover and chart the path of their learning through the extensive range of educational materials and learning experiences available at the store. The store will be an important stopover for parents with school going children where they will never be alone in their journey to help their children explore the best in education material.
"It is important for children to have a strong foundation and we have the tools to guide them along this path," says Mr Ong Khiaw Hui, General Manager of Times Bookstores. From assessment and enrichment books to lifestyle titles, educational games, toys and stationery, students will be adequately equipped to navigate the challenges of school.
Within the store is a first-ever dedicated Marshall Cavendish corner, parents and children can expect quality assessment and reference books. In addition, Marshall Cavendish consultants are on hand to help parents and children identify the most suitable education materials compatible with their age and learning ability. The consultants are backed by a wealth of resources from Marshall Cavendish Education, a leading K-12 educational publisher with more than 40 years of experience in education publishing and the first Asian publisher to have our very own Maths textbook adopted in the US.
Marshall Cavendish Education caters to a variety of educational needs ranging from textbooks to supplementary materials and teachers' guides. Marshall Cavendish also specialises in learning materials for mother tongues and is the sole publisher of Chinese textbooks in Singapore. Marshall Cavendish is a trusted partner in education; both locally and globally, many of its products are endorsed by Ministries of Education in other countries as well.
In line with the move towards the use of technology in schools and learning, Marshall Cavendish will also launch the new MCEnrich.com, an online assessment portal. Parents can now assign questions to their children and track their children’s grades. With computer terminals located within the Times Learning+ store, parents and students can try their hands at the questions and sign-up on the spot.
At the official opening this weekend, parents and children can revel in a weekend of fun-filled activities with an intriguing series of treasure hunts empowering children and parents to ‘Steer your own Course’. Set sail in the sea of knowledge with hands-on workshops by Marshall Cavendish experts to learn the art of illustration and creative writing. Adults and children will also be in for a carnival of treats with entertainment by magicians, ventriloquists and balloon sculptors.
