How do we do it?

We know that 80% of brain development is complete by age 8, 50% by age 5. This is the crucial window of opportunity for maximum cognitive development in all human beings. Our research based programs are based on “educational zigzagging” in which subject matter is addressed in many different ways. Our interactive whiteboard Learning Station combined with hands on experiments and projects creates a multi-sensory learning experience which has been proven to improve a child’s learning capability.
