“Children build their executive function skills through engagement in meaningful social interactions and enjoyable activities that draw on self-regulatory skills at increasingly demanding levels” – Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University^.
Our early childhood learning program draws inspiration from the research work and Key Concepts created by experts in leading institutions – the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University^ and the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child^ – that aggregates what the latest science tells us about how early experiences affect not only early learning and school readiness, but also lifelong health of our children.
These Key Concepts are the building blocks of the core story (the science) of early childhood development :
Early experiences affect the development of brain architecture, which provides the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health, thus helping babies unlock their amazing abilities and exponential talents before the age of 3.
Serve & Return framework
When an infant or young child babbles, gestures, or cries, and an adult responds appropriately with eye contact, words, or a hug, neural connections are built and strengthened in the child’s brain that support the development of communication and social skills.
Executive Function & Self-Regulation skills
These skills are crucial for learning and development, as they enable positive behavior in babies allowing them to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.
The single most common factor for children who develop resilience (or the ability to overcome significant adversity) is at least one stable and committed relationship with a supportive parent, caregiver, or other adult.
Creativity is a characteristic given to all human beings at birth.

Every child is born a genius.

If children grew up according to early indications, we should have nothing but geniuses.
