Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Cedar Park works hard to promote brain development in young children, but this brain development should not just happen at preschool. Take a look at some activities to do at home that will support healthy brain development in preschoolers:

Imaginative play

Imaginative play is a wonderful way for your preschooler to develop the brain. This type of play encourages your child to imagine being in different situations, and acting out various ideas. This type of activity helps to reinforce neural connections made during school. Your child can create adventures with parents, siblings or peers. During this play time your child practices language skills, learns about setting rules and limitations, and develops an understanding of empathy, all of which are valuable life skills that help build the foundation for healthy future interactions with others.

Rhyming games

Nursery rhymes are a good way to aid brain development. Keep your child interested by acting out the story, and being as expressive as possible. Studies have shown that being able to clearly hear and identify rhyming words and sounds is essential for developing reading skills. Let your child dance to a song, sing-a-long, or even dress up as different characters. This will develop healthy, creative self expression.

Reading

Reading with your preschooler is one of the best ways to aid brain development. By reading with your child, you are helping to build on and improve language and vocabulary. Make the experience as interactive as possible. This encourages your child to engage with the book and utilize problem-solving and reasoning skills.

Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Cedar Park offers the innovative Brain Waves™ Curriculum, a program designed to enhance brain development in young children. This program has fun activities that stimulate cognitive, socio-emotional, physical and language development as your child grows, helping to maximize his or her learning potential.
