MerlionKids' curriculum in early years education is cognitive neuroscience driven. Research studies in neuroscience and molecular biology, reveal that skills & intelligence can be nurtured. It is the child's learning experiences during his/her sensitive and formative time period as a child that shape the brain architecture. Academic performances at a later age are highly dependable on the cognitive executive functional skills during the significant years.
HUMAN BRAIN DEVELOPMENT
The development of core executive functions and brain capabilities is a highly interactive process that requires constant interaction between the child and the caregivers. Positive interaction between the child and the caregivers literally builds the architecture of the developing brain. It is about helping the child to cultivate an attitude of curiosity, motivation, resilience and perseverance through constant encouragement & interactive engagement. Research studies have also shown that resilience requires relationships, not rugged individualism.
While attachments to their parents are primary, young children can also benefit significantly from relationships with other responsive caregivers both within and outside the family. MerlionKids understands this significance and continuously provides updated briefing and professional training on knowledge and industry development to all our passionate educators.
