Scientific Techniques Explained to Parents Simply

Overview

Parents play a critical role in shaping a child’s future and enriching their learning journey. The first 1,000 days of a child’s life is the golden window of opportunity for their development. At this stage, children are absorbing everything they see, hear, touch, taste, and smell.

 

In a poll conducted by NTU, over 95% of parents regret not spending enough time with their children during the early years. Relationship development, bilingual language development, all have their foundation started in a child’s first 3 years, and once missed, this optimal window of learning will be lost.
