Sparky isn't just another cute face! He was modeled after an actual brain neuron. You see, baby brains are exploding with activity. In fact, a 2-year-old's brain has twice the energy as an adult brain. I'll bet that doesn't surprise you!
Early experience grows the neurons and the neural networks in a baby's brain. The goal of that experience is to wire networks for speed and efficiency and to create agile minds.
Sparkabilities was created with the developing brain in mind. We are not just teaching your baby or toddler but rather nurturing the neural pathways that support learning. Our innovative systematic approach is built upon the latest understandings emerging from the cognitive, developmental and neurosciences.
The sciences now recognize that intelligence is no longer just about a score on a test but more importantly the brain skills required to define, analyze and respond appropriately. These critical brain skills are developed most readily in the early years. These skills include:
- collecting data precisely
- processing and integrating information efficiently
- interconnecting brain regions with agility
- developing clear perceptions
- acting upon perceptions with quality performance
The segments in the Sparkabilities DVDs are designed specifically to develop these essential learning skills. Our approach is unique in that we are not just teaching a child we are training a brain.
