Why Heguru Training is Most Effective at a Young Age
January 04, 2022 | Heguru Method @ HarbourFront and Choa Chu Kang
The brain is made up of two hemispheres. Each hemisphere learns differently even though they function as a whole, to help us think, learn, understand and communicate. The right brain develops first. It does so by the time children are 3 to 4 years of age. Contrastingly, the left brain doesn't fully develop until children are approximately seven years old. As such, the first seven years are recognised as a critical period in a child’s development.
As parents, you would probably wonder which is the best learning method to introduce your infants and toddlers to for a good head start in life. Heguru Method is a leading provider of early childhood education, and this article looks into the reasons Heguru training is most effective for children at a young age.
Young minds are still developing and hence able to absorb new information more effectively
Right brain development for babies lays the foundation for effective cognitive development from the initial level. It is important to develop the right brain abilities of young children during the critical period of 0-7 years of age. As young minds are still developing, this allows for new information to be absorbed more effectively.
In comparison to the left brain, the right brain processes and understands information at a much higher speed. While the left brain controls logic and reasoning, sequential understanding, analytical function as well as speech and language acquisition, it also processes information at a slower speed. Stimulating the right and left sides of the brain at the same time through Heguru training helps to synergize both hemispheres of the brain, enabling the child to learn more efficiently and effectively.

Talent can be discovered and trained early
A child requires a dynamic environment to achieve great feats of creativity, imagination, and innovation. Accessing the right brain with Heguru Method’s baby and toddler classes not only enables a child to learn more efficiently, it can even discover talents of a child early on in life. It is not that right brain development will give you a genius baby, but rather that there is a genius already inside every baby - if only we can access the abilities of the right brain.
Some of these examples include children with talents like speed-reading and photographic memory, and the seemingly limitless powers of recall associated with them. Children with the ability to produce an accurate drawing after just a glance, or prodigious musical talents and the ability of perfect pitch also rely on the use of the right brain.
Building confidence before the challenges of adulthood
We all know that in today’s society, a high IQ alone is no longer sufficient for a child to excel, with a strong EQ being also vital for them to succeed in the long-run. Right brain training for babies in their developmental years will help to boost a child’s EQ and allow them to develop self-confidence, as this provides them the early advantage to understand situations and life better.
At the same time, apart from developing a child’s creativity, this form of training also develops a genuine interest in acquiring new skills not just academically, but also in other areas like athletic activities and the arts. This increase in EQ will also aid in a child’s communication abilities.
The Heguru method promotes a harmonious learning approach that guides your little one to inculcate a lifelong love for learning. With the right approach, Heguru’s right brain training methodology will prove to be effective in increasing brain capacity while it develops at its fastest during the early years.
