Learning Process

  • Senses: The fundamental senses of seeing, tasting, hearing, smelling & feeling encourage a child's curiosity.
  • Fine motor: Fine motor skills are those smaller actions between the thumb and fingers or using the toes to wriggle and feel the objects.
  • Gross motor: Gross motor skills are larger movements involving the arm, leg, or feet muscles or the entire body.
  • Logic: Logical training enables babies to make connections between pieces of information.
  • Creativity: Colors, shapes, learning how to draw, getting familiar with music and rhythm, all goes to aid the growth of a child's creativity.
  • Linguistic: Linguistic Intelligence is the ability to use sound and language for expression and comprehension of others while a child is developing.
  • Emotion: A healthy child should be able to control and express his emotion, and interact effectively with others with mutual trust.
  • Communication Skills: Good communication skills lead a child to perform cooperative tasks and become productive team members.
  • Self-Esteem: Self-Esteem is an overall sense of achievement a child feels from the important people around him. Task basis activities could help children to build up a stronger self-esteem with a better judgment about their own worth.
