Our Brand Story
We at SMM Education Group believe that education is more than just teaching children how to study. Rather, it is about teaching them how to learn with joy while developing multiple intelligences and mastery of life skills. It was with this vision in mind that spurred Dr. Lim Teck Ting to establish SMM Education Group in 2002. Since then, SMM Education Group has internally developed and refined their trademarked MRC JSP, MRC and 3Q™ learning programme that cultivates and develops the whole brain across nine multiple intelligences.
After over 15 years of maturation, MRC Learning Centre is now recognised as a world-class education centre, with over 1000 centres across Malaysia and Singapore. Already, over 30,000 children have experienced our whole brain education system with measurable results, giving them a foundation for academic success and a priceless lifetime advantage. Today, you too can enhance your child’s future academic success by investing in his or her whole brain development through MRC Learning Centre’s proven whole-brain education system.

Transformative Learning Systems
MRC JSP, MRC and 3Q™ learning programme are innovative intellectual architectures exclusive to MRC Learning Centres. They have been designed to nurture healthy curiosity, develop the whole brain, and instill a lifelong love for learning. All learning programme received honour recognition by the Ministry of Education in both Malaysia and Singapore.
Each programme has been meticulously developed by SMM Education Group to provide world-class standards whole brain education. Our internal researchers adopted key world-class research from global education specialists and scholars to develop the core competencies of SMM Education Group’s initial programme development.
One of the core competencies is “Formula 9 Teaching Approach” – a teaching method primarily founded on the nine multiple intelligences research by Howard Gardner, an internationally renowned Harvard University professor and developmental psychologist who played a key role in education and learning research. Gardner’s research states that the nine multiple intelligences of humans are:
- Bodily/ Kinaesthetic
The framework of “Formula 9 Teaching Approach” leverages Gardner’s education research, thus optimising children’s learning by enhancing the multiple ways of whole brain learning and information processing.
To complete whole brain development, our internal researchers also developed the “Super Memory Map” (SMM) to be another core competency of our programme. The “Super Memory Map” is an eastern education philosophy framework and teaching guideline that has been designed to encourage optimal concrete and abstract learning.
The SMM Methodology enables students to:
- Easily convert the content of school lessons into long-term memory images
- Master dictation, spelling and comprehension
- Write and communicate effectively
- Master the use of grammar and expand their vocabulary
With our “Formula 9 Teaching Approach”, “Super Memory Map” core competencies, we successfully merged the best practices of western and eastern education philosophy into one effective learning centre. This unique combination has been integrated into each programme to create a transformative learning experience that develops the whole brain, giving your child the best start for future success.

Life skills mastery
Mastering life skills are as important as cognitive education, and teaching life skills are the responsibility of both parents and schools. Life skills such as psychosocial, interpersonal, communication and conflict management skills equip children with the tools and ability to appropriately and responsibly make decisions commonly faced in daily life.
Developing life skills often involves critical thinking and values clarification. Acquiring mastery of these skills produces powerful behavioural outcomes. This is why it is critically important to begin teaching these skills at an early age. At MRC Learning Centres, we help your child joyously develop these necessary life skills through exciting storytelling and interactive activities. All programme comes with stories based on the “8 Golden Principles”:
With the guiding hand and mentorship of our internally trained and dedicated course instructors, students will develop important life skills such as:
- Positive mental attitude for resilience during hard times
- The ability to be flexible and adaptable for creative problem solving
- Performance and accountability for responsible discipline and life decisions
- Interpersonal skills for effective communication and mature social interaction
- Proactive skills and introspective skills for personal growth
- Leadership skills for life and career success
- Character development for a balanced, healthy and happy life
