Science has proven that the earlier you expose your child to a stimulating, fun environment filled with music, sounds, images, color & activities, the more engaged they will be; developing their multi-sensory & motor skills, focus, concentration & most importantly communication. Miss Rennu’s Baby Genius Recipes are highly interactive, developed to entertain children with colors, images & sounds, whilst developing their visual, auditory & physical learning styles.

Babies learn at a remarkable rate. By exposing your infant and toddler at an early age to phonics, reading, language, music & motor activities, they will increase the rate & development of the neural pathways i.e. the wiring of the brain circuits. The brain operates on a use it or lose it principle. Our fun learning recipes exposes your baby  to social skills, music, poetry, phonics & vocabulary, hands on motor development activities, circle time, art/crafts, more music & singing in an interactive setting. Our concept Never 2 Little 2 Learn has been proven to work with our youngest readers developing as early as 2.3 years old.

Using the zig-zag methodology, which is where students will have a new activity every 15 minutes, the children will enjoy music, learn songs through finger play & actions, develop motor skills through dance & rhythm, learn sounds through phonetic & word picture association, laugh & giggle, listening to stories presented with puppets, & explore puzzle configurations. They play with tons of toys, puzzles & blocks, exploring ways to learn, laugh & learn more.

Children will learn phonetic sounds by seeing the letter, hearing the sounds & images associated with the sounds, followed by an activity related to the sound or word. Science has proven that this multi-sensory approach develops the synaptic connections in the brain, teaching important language skills during the child’s natural window of opportunity – ages 0-3 years old. It has been proven that providing a colorful, stimulating environment to your child will engage & motivate them to learn better.

The weekday after school hours of 3 to 6 p.m. represents an enormous challenge for children in the United States. More than 70% of children have parents who work outside of the home, leaving 15 million youth unsupervised by adults when school is out. This means that they are 3 times more likely for them to engage in violent crimes, drug use, alcohol & other inappropriate, illegal activities. In addition, the recent budget cuts in schools have resulted in an overload of students in classrooms, & many of the sports, music, public speaking & heritage cultural programs being eliminated & cancelled. This is why it is critical to ensure your child is receiving the necessary additional academic assistance and engaging enrichment activities to continue to develop their mental and physical health, & overall performance.

 

Genius Kids ASAP provide academics, sports, arts & crafts, public speaking, and several other fun, enrichment activities all under one roof. Our unique curriculum motivates our participants to become productive, engaged community members. Our results clearly show that students who attend our programs gain social & academic skills, show improvements in self-esteem, learn respect towards their peers, school & community through daily interaction with positive role models. Our students have shown marked improvement in test scores, many of them skipping grades and winning several local and national competitions. Many of our students have ranked first nationally in global math and chess competitions. Genius Kids student stand out apart wherever they go beaming with confidence and able to attain new levels of academic achievement through our innovative multimedia approach of teaching.
