Pre and Primary SchoolIt’s a well-known fact that, even if your child had the brain capacity of a genius, he/she will struggle academically if concentration is a problem.
At Brain Gain we strive to address the root cause of concentration issues and NOT just the symptoms.
For youngsters to be able to concentrate optimally, we need to make sure that both motor skills and cognitive skills are well developed.
We are excited to introduce a brand-new programme to our portfolio! This unique programme, presented only by Brain Gain, is aimed at all 4-6-year-old toddlers, to make sure they enter Grade 1 as winners.
Research on the tremendous pressures on preschool children, gave rise to the development of this unique program.
The Brain Gain 2-year school readiness program is one of its kind and specifically formulated to ensure your child is ready for school when he or she enters the formal school environment in Grade 1. A major advantage of this program is early detection of problems.
In this programme, the child, parents and teacher, all work together to ensure school readiness. Our aim is to let your child enter Grade 1 with confidence!
1. Cognitive and Motor Skills Evaluation
Each learner starts the program by undergoing a cognitive evaluation. This evaluation – developed by a psychiatrist and a team of experts – focuses specifically on cognitive ability and is the first step in our process of getting your child ready for Grade 1. You, the parent, receive a 6-page report on your child’s ability to concentrate and focus.
Furthermore, we will evaluate the learner’s motor skills – this evaluation was developed by a Kinder-kineticist and Occupational Therapist – to identify age appropriate under developed motor skills.
And then the fun begins!
2. BRAIN GAIN MOVE motor skills development programme
Movement plays a crucial role in all aspects of the child’s development –especially in pursuit of academic success. Unfortunately, we live in a dangerous society where children play in the home rather than outside.
