Essential brain development occurs during those all-important first years of a child’s life. This is when your child needs optimum levels of both nutrition and targeted mental stimulation to promote healthy brain development. A nutritious diet, exercise and reading to your child are all helpful in boosting cognitive ability. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Greensboro we offer a proven brain development program and understand the importance of mental stimulation for a growing child. Here are several ways to improve your child’s cognitive ability at home:

Foods rich in Omega 3 which is a type of beneficial fat, can improve your child’s cognitive abilities and are found in:

  • Tuna
  • Avocados
  • Walnuts

Iron-rich foods which enhance mental alertness include:

  • Chicken
  • Spinach
  • Beans

Exercise increases oxygen to the brain and can improve a child’s memory. Keeping children physically fit and healthy protects their brain cells and enhances the effects of helpful brain chemicals.

Sleep is a simple way to boost brain development. Encourage your child to have healthy sleeping patterns, which increases their ability to learn effectively. Adequate sleep also improves memory, creativity, and problem-solving for your child and their parents.

Our brain development program in Greensboro is designed to stimulate your child’s mind, while they are also learning and playing in a safe and comfortable environment. Our staff understands that each child is unique, and develops at their own pace. For more information about enrollment and our programs, click here.
