We offer the most important basics of education in language and math.
ReadinKlub… we know that reading to our children from a young age is a great way to bond over characters and stories while having fun and sparking their imagination. However, there are numerous important other benefits that early age reading can bring.
MathTalk… The latest research is indicating that having strong Math skills in the Early Years is the strongest predictor of later academic achievement.
French Language… Music and Foreign Language studies awaken and stimulate neural pathways in the brain that are associated with higher intelligence, such as abstract thinking and empathy.
Brain development, before the age of six, children have the ability to learn at a faster rate than they will at any other time in their lives. Talking, singing, reading, number talk and foreign languages will have a significant influence on their brain development, and connections form as a direct result of this kind of stimulation.
Educational benefits, studies have shown that strong oral language skills set children up for literacy development. Knowing how words and sentences work will also help children grasp the concepts of other subjects, including math and science.
Better concentration, the activity of sitting still together and focusing on the pictures, words and sounds will help lengthen your child’s attention span which is critical for helping them concentrate at school. A regular routine and concentration will reinforce self-discipline. Using number talk will intergrade math into everyday life.
Psychological advantages, children engage from a young age not only have an increased attention span, but they also tend to be more creative, curious and imaginative. Early learners are also likely to become more logical thinkers, because of their ability to grasp concepts, recognize cause and effect, apply logic to different scenarios and use good judgement.
Classes offer the use of repetition and spiraling. Concepts are introduced into everyday life situations in a fun and non-oppressive manner. The English and French ReadinKlub includes story time and puppet theatre.
