Necessity of the early childhood education
In a short 36 months, children develop their abilities to think and speak, learn and reason and lay the foundation for their values and social bahaviour as adults.
It’s said that the brain is 100% developed by the age of 12, and its capabilities are determined by the age of 6.
What is happening inside the human brain?
Children will reach their full potential if the connection between the right and left-brain are triggered and strengthened.
At Copel, we want every child to reach their full potential and succeed. Our programs focus on activating the entire brain.
When are connections made?
Connections are made in the brain when a child is fully engaged in an activity. It is said that the attention span of a child depends on their age. Most times it lasts the number of minutes of their age plus 1 more minute.
For example, a 3 year old would have an attention span of about 4 minutes. It seems as though children during early childhood are easily distracted. However they actually pay attention to many things. The young mind is constantly tuning into things and then saying, “I understand this, what is next?” They are highly attentive, almost to an excessive level.
