How your Child Can Benefit from Multi-sensory Learning Techniques
Every parent wants the best for their children. In fact, the moment our children are born, we are already planning their future for them. We all want our children to excel, be happy and be successful – perhaps a medical doctor, politician, teacher, lawyer or a neuroscientist. Yes, every parent has big dreams for their children, but in order to help our little ones achieve greatness, we have to give them the best foundation possible, and this starts with the best pre-school education.
If you are a parent of a young child living in Johannesburg and you are looking for a pre-school programme at the forefront of education, then you need to have a look at FasTracKids. Situated in Sandton, we offer early childhood education programmes for children from the ages of 1 to 8 years old. As a proven innovator of international early childhood education, we provide an educational advantage by encouraging children to discover a love of learning in a fun and interactive setting, by offering the very finest combination of a Montessori educational system using multi-sensory learning techniques.
What is Multi-sensory Learning Techniques?
It is a known fact that we only remember 20% of what we read, 30% of what we hear, 40% of what we see, 50% of what we say, 60% of what we do and 90% of what we see, hear, say and do! And this is where multi-sensory learning techniques help. Multi-sensory learning techniques means just what it sounds like, it is all about using visual (sight), auditory (hearing), kinaesthetic senses (touch and balance), gustatory (taste) and olfactory (smell) to teach and help children to remember.
They say that if a child is not learning in the way that you teach, then change your teaching methods and teach the child in the way in which he learns best, and at FasTracKids, we give children a wide and strong foundation for learning, by making sure that their learning is fun and enjoyable through their five senses, which allows them to remember much easier.
About Our Pre-school Programme
With great emphasis placed on school readiness, we offer activities such as music, maths, ballet, boot camp, karate, kiddies’ golf and modern dancing, and we also follow a fun and informative theme each month, such as astronomy, biology, communication, transport, things that float, science and literature.
By focussing on what we call the four Cs: critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration, our multi-sensory learning technique is renowned for its many benefits, such as encouraging a much easier transfer of information, instruction and knowledge, and generating a greater capacity for learning. Also, young learners enjoy the engaging process and they want to learn more, as well as achieve more.
