Course Description

One of the most significant years at school will be your child's year in kindergarten.

Will your child have the skills and strategies to cope--and thrive?

You're probably afraid your child won't get the education and opportunities to reach his or her potential, right?

That you won't have done everything you could do to prepare your child for kindergarten, right?

It's time to replace that fear with understanding, so that you can give your child the best start possible and prepare them for school.


This course gives parents, grandparents, caregivers, early childhood educators, and teachers of young children (pre-kindergarten) what you need so you can boost your child's brain power and give them the very best start in life.

90% of the brain develops by age 5, but where are the instructions for brain development?

What are some ways we can support children's early learning?

The best opportunity is NOW, before kids go off to school, during the brain's most sensitive window for development.


One of the most important is built in, because the brain’s favorite way to learn is thru PLAY.

  • Are you concerned that your child may not be ready for kindergarten?
  • Do you have anxiety about whether your child is going to be prepared to enter the school system?
  • Are you trying to find new ideas to stimulate your child's early learning?
  • Do you want your child to have the best start possible during their early years?


Building Your Child's Brain Power will

  • Provide you with ideas for activities you can do with your child to stimulate his or her learning.
  • Provide examples of everyday learning that can happen at home.
  • Harness your child's brain power by implementing easy ways of enriching your child's environment.
  • Help you assess whether your child is ready for kindergarten with the time comes.
  • Give you a checklist the milestones that your child will reach along the way.
  • Shine the light on how your child's brain works, and what you can do to enrich their learning.


There is no need to prepare lesson plans or turn your house into a school boot camp...

'cuz kids' favorite way to learn is PLAY!


Mrs. A. knows that your time is precious, so each lesson includes a 3-5 minute video full of practical tips and suggestions for maximizing early learning. Instead of adding to the to-do list, you will find out how to use PLAY within daily family activities. This series of videos is designed to help you, as a parent or caregiver, take advantage of what you already know and do. There are cheat sheets to download and print off to use a references in order boost your child’s ordinary experiences and create extraordinary learning experiences.


Building Your Child's Brain Power also explores higher level thinking skills, the power of imagination, hands-on activities, managing risk, brain games, and more.

I'll stay after school and work on making it better.
