A child’s brain is an amazing structure: flexible, powerful, and able to learn, process, create and dream. The more we discover about the brain, the more we are able to affect how children use their brains, and thus improve their potential for the future.
Just as exercise of the body promotes physical fitness, so does the proper exercise of the mind promote brain fitness. The latest neuroscience has shown how plastic the brain actually is; the input we receive actually creates physical or "neuroplastic" changes in the brain. In short, we can train this amazing structure to help children become more fit and ready for lifelong learning–and the earlier in life we start with such exercise, the better.
