Some parents and educators still believe that the young brain is fragile and that early childhood is a time of innocence and thus not suitable for formal academic teaching. Based upon this principle, these individuals try to open up their children’s creative spirit by smooth exercises of awakening and discovery.

Yet, pretending that children should be preserved, exclusively allowed “to play” or should not study academic matters before school is profoundly underestimating their intellectual potential and can result in missing critical learning opportunities in arithmetic, reading, and expression. After the first three years, the “windows of opportunity” for optimal acquisition of basic math and language concepts are already starting to fade.

By using the right early teaching methods at home with your children, you will provide them with a priceless advantage—the very foundation for their future intellectual and professional success.
