Promoting Intellectual Growth

Cognitive Development
During adolescence, the developing teenager acquires the ability to think systematically about all logical relationships within a problem.
For Kids, Games Can Build Strong Minds
Citing the latest research on the brain, experts say chess, Scrabble, Monopoly -- even jigsaw puzzles or tic-tac-toe -- help children build analytical, organizational and creative skills.
Reading to Kids Helps Their Development
Research shows that reading regularly to young children, especially those between ages 6 months and 5 years, is central to their overall growth and development.
Sports and Music: Both Good for Kids
Organized sports for children offer obvious benefits such as physical fitness and sportsmanship, but did you know that a musical education program has many of the same benefits? Music education and participation in sports are both great ways to prepare your child for future success.
