The Brain and Literacy

Early experiences are brain shaping. We know that a child is born with an IQ range that can vary as much as twenty points.  While genes and physical health set the stage for some of a child’s future behavior, we now know that a child’s IQ also depends on environmental experiences he is exposed to on a consistent basis. Reading to your child can influence brain development. At this session families will be exposed to ideas to cultivate learning through literacy.

Grow the Seed of Science

Real science begins with childhood curiosity, which leads to discovery and exploration with help and encouragement. Young children, like scientists, need to practice the process skills of predicting, observing, classifying, hypothesizing, experimenting, and communicating. Like adult scientists, they need opportunities to reflect on their findings, how they reached them, and how the findings compare to their previous ideas and the ideas of others. During this session, families will be provided with activities that encourage scientific explorations.
