Children develop multiple abilities during the most sensitive period between 0-3 years old. If parents can provide the right environment and company during this period, it can greatly push their baby’s brain development towards the right direction.
This workshop will guide parents to explore how to start early bilingual education, the importance of parent-guided reading, how to create suitable atmosphere and environment for parent-guided reading, how to use picture books and storytelling skills, the influences of music, how to use music to help your baby to grow, and how to let your baby be the dictator of games.
This program integrates theories and scientific findings to guide you through practice, self-discovery and video aids so as to enhance your awareness. Being fun and interactive, the program helps you to instill knowledge of brain development and cognition, to reflect from within, to plan and act, and to completely change your ways of interactions with your baby.
