The first years last forever

The early years of a child are crucial because it is a time when the foundation for adulthood (positive or otherwise) is established.

Galileo Enrichment Learning Program, Inc. believes in this so they have made building the future of children an advocacy through education.

It is a learning center that leads in terms of making Math, English and Singaporean Math made easy. It is located at the Narita Building, Delgado Street. While this is its first learning center in Iloilo City, this is Galileo’s 34th in the whole country.

“Galileo is our lifetime advocacy that opens minds and enriches lives. Our philosophy in guiding students is to impart mastery of the topic, which is principal to lifelong learning. Our namesake substantiates our existence: Galileo's fearless and adventurous pursuit of knowledge has inspired us to impart his legacy to learner-adventurers in today’s evolving world. Our learning environment creates a positive visual and emotional appeal to the learners. Every Galileo learning day is a happy day!" stated the center's brochure.

"We believe that there are many dedicated educators in the Philippines and we just need to harness and share our knowledge of the effective practice in the industry. We know that it takes a collaborative effort to uplift the industry in general but through this program, we believe that we are making a difference in improving the quality of education through the children we teach. Parents' system and support to reinforce the learning process at home are important to developing the learning skills of children. Our teachers, on the other hand, are provided with the necessary skills to unlock and to explore the children's potential for learning," it stated further.

The brochure also listed the 5 ways of learning that they provide. As follows:
