Brain Based Learning

     

The human brain begins forming three weeks after conception.  By the time a child is three years old, her brain has formed about one thousand trillion connections—about twice as many as adults have.  These brain cells are entirely planned for making connections which means that the most critical window of brain development is between the day a child is born to six years of age. 

The Kensington School understands this which is why we have committed ourselves to integrating brain-based research into our curriculum, teacher development, and parent sessions.  The Kensington School will provide the ideal environment, materials, and nurturing relationships for brain cell connections to be made.

"The exceptionally strong influence of early experience on brain architecture makes the early years of life a period of both great opportunity and great vulnerability for brain development. Critical aspects of brain architecture begin to be shaped before and soon after birth, and many fundamental aspects of that architecture are established well before a child enters school.”
