How the learning from latest brain research influences preschool curriculam and environment

Brain fact How it influences our preschool curricula and environment
Each child’s brain and learning experience is unique. Please see section on Multiple Intelligences.
The brain uses patterns to organise information. Please see section on Theme-based Learning.
The brain is designed to benefit from good teaching and experiences. At KKEL Preschools, we provide a rich stimulating environment that helps the brain make connections.

Physically: Child-friendly colours (not over bright, jarring ones), textures, children’s displays, teaching architecture, a variety of spaces, teaching aids, active/passive learning, personalized spaces etc.

Emotionally: Providing care and security by bonding with children and taking care of their needs.

The brain needs to be properly hydrated to be alert. We allow children to drink water whenever they ask for it.
Small muscle exercise stimulates brain growth. We provide finger play activities every day, besides water play activities that exercise the small muscles, such as using eyedroppers and sponges to transfer water. We conduct clapping and dancing activities for creative movement, like ‘Open, Shut Them’ and ‘If You are Happy and You Know It’.
Cross lateral movements keep both sides of the brain working. We conduct exercises that require cross lateral movements, such as twisting at the waist with arms stretched to the side, bending at the waist to touch left hand to right toe and right hand to left toe. Children sing songs like ‘Hot Cross Buns’ accompanied by hand movements that cross the midline of the body. We have dancing to music with streamers and scarves.
Novelty increases attention. We rotate toys and equipment at the Activity Centers. Gymbo the Clown comes to class to introduce concepts.
Reward or praise can affect learning! We encourage teachers to use feedback instead of praise. For example, instead of saying “That’s a great painting”, the teacher says, “The brown and yellow colors you used for the trees helps to give a wintry look to your painting.” Similarly, we use encouragement instead of praise. For example, “I can tell you have put a lot of effort into your drawing.”
