The brain consists of two main parts: the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere. The left part is responsible for mathematical, logical and sequential thinking, while imagination, intuition and creativity comes from the right side of our brain. The education system in Singapore is generally geared more towards training the left hemisphere of the brain. And although the left brain is responsible for a host of wonderful functions, those of the right brain are equally important. Perhaps you’ve recently stumbled upon the benefits of right brain development, or you’ve heard raving reviews about Heguru’s baby classes and toddler classes from fellow parents. What exactly is the Heguru programme and how are these classes executed? Read on to learn more.
Infant toddler classes
The right hemisphere, which is the creative side of the brain, is usually developed first at the stages of infancy. Research has shown that the first few years of a child’s life are crucial for brain development; hence, this is the perfect time to immerse your little one in right brain development activities for babies that will prime the brain for better learning. During this period, children have the greatest ability to absorb massive amounts of input and stimulus at high speed. Learning by instant memory and intuitive abilities, the different sensory experiences of a baby are easily stored in the brain and impact how a child processes information as he or she grows.
The objective of this programme is to tap on the potential of the right brain, further strengthening its amazing abilities while building bonds and improving communication skills between parents and children. Recommended for infants and toddlers 6 months to 3 years of age, the programme highlights training of photographic memory, increased attention span, and sensory play among many others.
All parents want the best for their children’s education; this starts with selecting the right preschool for your child, where intellectual, emotional, physical and social capabilities can be developed, laying firm foundations for lifelong learning and academic success.
From fun handicrafts to comprehensive worksheets, each activity in Heguru’s preschool classes serves to boost logic and reasoning abilities, preparing your child for formal education. Targeted at children 4 to 6 years of age the preschool classes further nurtures their ability to absorb, process and apply increasingly difficult information.
For children 7 to 12 years of age, the primary class is specially designed to unleash the full potential of the child's unique abilities. Harnessing the power of the right and left brain capabilities developed in the Infant & Toddler and Preschool Classes, the children are trained to develop their speed reading ability and increase their visualising powers. Additionally, children are encouraged to develop skill sets and abilities beyond the local education system, stretching their cognitive thinking and appetite for learning.
Regardless of whether you’re looking at infant and toddler classes, preschool classes, or classes for your primary school going child, the programmes at Heguru Method will help build a strong learning foundation, benefiting them for a lifetime.
