Brain development

Human beings are literally born with billions of brain cells and studies on brain cells have shown how the brain is ‘organized’ and how as human beings experience the world, these brainbrain cells connect. Gradually, when used repeatedly, those connections form superhighways that transmit information from the body to the brain and back again. This is the key basis of how human beings learn.

Learning ability is a sequential development of the brain that starts from the brain stem right through to neocortex that happen during the early years of the child’s development. It is a highly complex process and sequence that if developed well, will give the child the ability to perform to their utmost potential.

The science behind our program

Scientific research has shown that a child’s brain develops fastest in the earliest years of life. It is of crucial importance that the correct stimulation during this period is applied to improve a child’s development intellectually, physically and emotionally and to help lay down solid foundations which will allow children to maximize their future learning abilities. Research also consistently shows that lack of these developmental opportunities can result in motor delay and learning difficulties.

Research over the past 50 years points very much to the link between brain development, experience and later scholastic ability. Evidence now abounds to tell us that ‘what happens in the early years matters a lot’. The sensory and motor experiences a child has stimulate the brain to develop the neurological pathways necessary for later social, emotional and academic learning. Children who do not get the right experience cannot lay down these essential learning pathways.

“All human development follows a normal, predictable sequence of movement patterns.”
