Choosing a Preschool Part II –
Evidence for Faster Learning in Half the Time
Using Cognitive Approach
23rd Sept 2021, Thursday
8:30pm to 9:30pm (Singapore Time)
In this 2-part webinar series, we aim to explore different preschool curriculums and provide parents with some guidance in your search for the best preschool for your child.
Most preschools in Singapore devote an hour each day to English and Chinese instruction respectively. At BrainFit® Kindie, students receive about half an hour each day of instruction for each language (2.5 hours per week). Our results show that BrainFit® Kindie’s students will typically be able to read both English and Chinese texts towards the end of K1 (the year students turn 5). We achieve similar (or better) results as children who devote almost double the time to language learning.
How do we do this? In order to be a successful learner, many skills are needed. BrainFit® Kindie’s curriculum develops these skills in a structured manner through two main approaches: Cognitive Training & Academic Teaching. Students in our kindergarten participate in brain training activities every day to improve memory, attention span, learning speed, emotional regulation & mindset. It is our belief that with a fitter brain, children can learn faster and have more fun learning.
Join us at this webinar as we explore BrainFit® Kindie’s brain-based curriculum and provide brain-based strategies for parents with children in the critical formative preschool years.
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain an overview of BrainFit® Kindie’s brain-based curriculum
- Evaluate the evidence of using a structured brain-based approach to nurture faster and happier learners in less time
- Take home important brain-based parenting strategies during the critical early years
