So when I heard about the program Ready. Set. Grow! I knew I wanted to learn more and be able to tell more parents about it. The Program Ready. Set. Grow! Has a main objective of provide resources for the children development.
Plenty of studies have shown that 90% of the brain is developed during the first 5 years of life. That is why the emphasis of education should be given to this age. When kids start learning soon they will have better academic outcomes in life.
What I had learn during my years as a parent and while doing my Masters in education is that quality time is more important that the quantity. I have always worked outside the home and my son has been at daycare or school. However I always find fun and safe ways to almost every activity with my son an educational experience that he will benefit from later on.
Even a simple trip to the grocery store can be fun for kids if we let them help do the shopping by creating a shopping list that is kids friendly and will help them learn letter, colors and fruits names, for example.
