Children learn faster through play and practice, but learning shouldn’t be limited to school. Parents and carers spend more time with their children than they spend at school so it’s important to work as a team with their formal education to give them the best opportunities to succeed.
90 percent of all brain development occurs by the age of five, most of which is before they enter the education system, so fun mental exercises to help boost brain development and function are important for kids as soon as you can get started on them.
Regular brain-boosting exercises allow the brain to strengthen its wiring each time a behaviour is repeated, thus improving its ability to better perform the same task next time. Examples of exercises you can use are:
- Concentration games
- Memory games
- Physical games
- Learn another language
