Started in 2006, our Cognitive Development Learning Centre in Singapore provides scientifically backed cognitive (brain) development programmes for learners aged 5-12 years old to help them skyrocket their mental capacity, intellectual performance, and overall learning efficiency.
Our programmes are designed to actively challenge, stimulate and improve key underlying cognitive (brain) skills so that our students can learn successfully and confidently within and beyond the classroom.
Book-learning and paper qualifications are no longer a guarantor of success after school. Which is why our cognitive development programme puts a heavy emphasis on brain-based experiential learning to help our children develop mental acuity and agility to adapt to different challenging situations.
Using a wide range of targeted and progressive brain-based activities, our programmes help students to learn faster, focus better, remember more, and maximise their overall brain performance.
We see each child as a unique learning individual with their own strengths and areas for improvements. As such, we do not employ a mass training approach (where every student is expected to learn and progress at the same pace); rather, we progress through the activities based on each child’s capabilities and gradually stretch them to their maximum learning potential.
We recognise that there are different learning styles and preferences for different students. As such, we actively and intentionally incorporate activities that will support ALL learner types – Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic (VAK Learning Model).
By providing activities in all 3 learning modes, we aim to provide a rich educational environment for our learners. Besides catering to the child’s preferred style of learning, exposure to the other learning styles will also help them hone and develop a well-rounded multi-mode learning personality that can adapt in various learning situations within and beyond the classroom.
With our small trainer to student ratio (1 trainer to max. 6 students), it allows us to engage each learner more actively and assign activities/tasks based on each child’s learning needs and progress.
No two students will be expected to work on the same tasks at the same speed/time, rather, our trained brain coach will be actively moving around and guiding each student on their assigned activity/task for the session.
Having good attention and strong focus is an essential skill for higher complexity processes such as memory and planning. Elimination is a prerequisite for focus. This means that to effectively focus on a task, a child will have to ignore external stimuli (distractions) and direct his/her cognitive resources to achieve a particular task. A child with poor focus will be easily distracted and may take a longer time to complete the given tasks.
Through our Cognitive Development Training Programme, students will work on a variety of tasks and activities to strengthen different attentional skills such as Auditory Attention, Visual Attention, Selective Attention, Divided Attention, etc.
Having a strong memory is a key catalyst for successful learning as this skill helps our brain store and consolidate information effectively. A child with poor memory will face difficulty in retrieving information that was learnt previously (resulting in unnecessary drilling and repetition) and may also find it challenging to keep in mind multiple-step instructions given.
Having a strong capacity for retention makes it easier for the learner to retrieve and recall information when needed and reduces the need for repetition on the same tasks/concepts.
Our brains use visual processing skills to make sense of the world around us and what our eyes see. These skills are needed for daily learning activities such as reading, writing, copying and visualisation. A learner with strong visual processing skills will be better able to organise and interpret visual inputs into meaningful information (ie reading a story accurately and making sense of it). A child who has not developed good eye movement, eye teaming, and eye focusing skills will often have increased difficulty with visual-related tasks.
When a child is behind in visual processing skills development, learning can take longer and thus requiring more cognitive effort that slows down the learning process. Our Cognitive Development Training Programme targets and strengthens key visual processing skills such as Visual Tracking, Visual Observation, Visual Spatial and more. With targeted visual practice, our learners will be able to read more effectively, be more careful in their tasks and absorb visual information much faster.
Brain processing speed is a core cognitive process required in all aspects of learning (both within and outside of the classroom). It is about the efficiency of the brain, how quickly the learner can understand and respond to the information presented. A child with slow processing speed will face difficulty in making decisions, executing tasks and may take a longer time to grasp new concepts and ideas.
Our trained Brain Coaches will provide progressively more challenging brain-based activities to stimulate and increase the speed at which the learner reacts, thinks, and responds. Through our Cognitive Development Training Programme, we aim to boost your child’s speed of learning, so they can absorb and grasp new concepts in a more time-efficient manner.
Just as a tall building needs a strong foundation to support it, our children will need a strong set of cognitive abilities to help support their effective and successful learning (both within and beyond the classroom).
When a child is given a strong brain/intellectual foundation, they then possess the ability to help themselves be focused, learn faster, learn deeper, remember more and develop sharp thinking. As they experience success in their learning, they will feel a great sense of confidence and self-motivation to push themselves further to achieve more.
