Free Php100,000 Insurance Coverage From Manulife’s Bundle Of Joy

The arrival of a new child is one of the most life-changing and challenging part of a parent’s life. The pressure to care for a newborn and the looming responsibility of raising that infant to be a good person while taking steps to secure that little child’s future is enough for any new parent to quiver with fear. I sure had those gazillions of worries when I was just starting to become a parent. But playing a vital role in shaping another person’s life, in my opinion, is more than enough privilege to embrace all the duties and responsibilities with arms wide open.

Manulife has great news for expectant mums and dads, as well as for parents of children below one year of age, they are entitled to a FREE 1-year term life insurance with coverage worth Php100,000!

Take Advantage of Kumon’s 2-Week Free Trial

announcement, freebie alert, education, tutorials

Kumon is something that I’ve always wanted for the little man to try. They have this individualized teaching format that I am sure my son would benefit from. I would love to enroll Jared in reading, as it would really be ideal for him to learn how to read soon. We have inquired last year, but backed out of my plan to enroll Jared since he was still a lot younger then, plus his pedia recommended that I look for a playschool where my son can get plenty of interaction with kids his age, which I did. For this year, though, and in preparation for my little on going to big school in June, I would like for him to give Kumon a shot and hopefully he enjoys it and learns from it.

I know a number of mummy blogger friends who enrolled their little ones to Kumon and got good results. That is why when sis Jobelle, Kim’s mum {one of the little man’s former playschool playmate}, told me about the latest Free Trial in Kumon, I did not hesistate to give them another visit to inquire.

I was told that for me to avail of the 2-week free trial classes I have to attend their parents’ orientation first. Here in Malolos, it was scheduled on 08 February at 12.30nn. I was told that I will receive an SMS a day before reminding me of the orientation so am marking my organizer for that.

If you plan to enroll your little ones to Kumon, I suggest you try their Free trial first and see if your children will enjoy it. For registration and further information, contact Kumon through the following:
