I've been training with Icon around 3 weeks and i feel like I've found a second home (seriously.... I pretty much live there now). I was so nervous to start, especially as a woman, with no combat experience, in a male dominated environment; but the team and coaches are amazing, everyone is so encouraging, supportive and patient and it's just an awesome environment to stretch myself physically (both literally & figuratively) and mentally. Thanks Steve and all the guys and gals at Icon, you're an awesome bunch

Child Development Centers Give Your Child an Edge – Icon Norwich

Programs for children are all around us. From day care centers to recreational sports and everything in between, options for parents to choose from are abounding. And although parents want what is best for their children, they often aren’t aware of the notable distinctions between the programs they are considering. To get the most out of any program, however, parents need to select one that is a “child development center.” These programs implement new, cutting-edge approaches that boost development in children. By making this choice, parents can be confident that they are giving their child a solid foundation for future success.

 

The best way for parents to start finding a top-notch child development program is to look at the curriculum. A developmentally appropriate, well-structured program that implements a detailed curriculum is essential. The curriculum should focus on the four areas of child development: physical, intellectual, emotional, and social so children receive the most benefit. But an important aspect of any curriculum is its implementation. Since we know that children learn best through play, parents should look for a program that integrates an age-appropriate play approach. This tactic will assure that children are engaged and happy while also fostering their development.

 

To execute a program such as this, well-trained child development specialists are crucial. These individuals should be well versed in developmental milestones and participate in ongoing training to enhance their existing certifications. In addition, individuals who are attuned to each child’s specific needs are influential, creating a nurturing environment that supports growth. Since positive interactions with children are essential to creating emotional security, applying various techniques that support child and brain development are key. When specialists are knowledgeable, they can then translate any progress or areas of improvement easily to parents.

 

To enhance child development programs even more, the implementation of techniques that boost healthy brain development are a primary focus. Since brain growth happens rapidly during the early years of life, increasing neural connections will foster fluid intelligence because children’s active memory is engaged during classes. Learning is then more exciting and becomes an active process that ultimately triggers the proper parts of the brain to enhance learning. This approach is the ultimate in brain training.

 

As a progressive child development center, SKILLZ has implemented the latest findings in child development, neuroscience, psychology, and learning styles into their program. The age-appropriate, structured curriculum is implemented by certified Pediatric Ninja Specialists through a game-based approach that stimulates the brain in a supportive and nurturing environment. And even better, this groundbreaking approach to child development is taught through a martial arts format.

 

Children deserve the chance to become the best version of themselves. By finding a quality child development center that has a robust and structured curriculum implemented by child development experts, parents can be confident that their children will succeed. Children participating in a program where they are happy and engaged while also being given the tools they need to be successful will promote optimal development and give them an edge on future endeavors.
