Early Brain Development: The challenge of Early Education, and the solution of M.E.S.S.Y. Learning
Bridge the early learning gap; Inspire the superhero in your child with M.E.S.S.Y. Learning.
Every parent wants to start their child on a path to greatness. But have you ever wondered if your preschooler is getting the education that is really designed for his or her age?
These days, many preschool learning programs use rote memorization and repetition based methods to teach young children. Preschoolers and toddlers learn just one subject at a time, memorizing letters, numbers, facts through thousands of videos, TV shows, digital games, and flash cards.
We, PandaParents, created M.E.S.S.Y. LEARNING because we want to change how young children learn!
GOAL #2 – Inspire your child with some hands-on learning & fun!
GOAL #3 – Build teamwork skill for your child & Turn learning into a fond memory!
Breaking down the elements
1. Your child’s Brain Development, Neural Network, and Early Learning Experiences
We all know that young children need opportunities to develop their social skills. But these are not the only skills that need to be exercised.
A young child is actively building his or her brain network for future success. Learning occurs throughout the day with activities and young brains soak up all the information like little sponges, right?
Well, not exactly. Early experiences re-shape the architecture of a young child’s brain. Every time a young child reads a book or completes an art project, they are growing their brain’s neural network – building solid connections among neurons. Click here to read about early brain development.
Is a standardized and adult like stair-stepping curriculum really the best for your child?
2. The Challenge in Early Education
HOW preschoolers learn is far more important than WHAT they are learning.
The challenge in early education is to connect different neurons in various neural pathways and integrate the learning that is taking place. This is so that certain skills can be transferred to various areas. For example, we could simply give a child a maze to draw to strengthen fine motor skills and visual learning – or we can add an additional element by giving them letter mazes to draw. This also integrates muscle memory and knowledge of letters, their sound and their shape; creating integrated learning experiences.
Based on what we know about early brain development, how young children learn critically affects their brain architecture, which is the foundation for future success.
We provide M.E.S.S.Y. Learning program that
— minimizes rote memorization and screen-dependent learning.
— stimulates natural and effective growth with hands-on, engaging learning exercises.
M.E.S.S.Y. Learning’ describes the natural learning process of children, particularly those aged 3-5 years.
So what is different about PandaParents' M.E.S.S.Y. ?
PandaParents M.E.S.S.Y. Learning is based on the idea that children learn best when they have the opportunity to experience a variety of activities which not only encourage creativity but also challenge them to have new experiences.
M.E.S.S.Y. Learning curriculum blends in various subjects while focusing on building brain network with creative designs. It uses simple formula to achieve effective learning:
1. M IS FOR MIX – MIXING SUBJECTS AND ACTIVITIES FOR INTEGRATIVE LEARNING
Just like mixing up various dishes in your child’s diet, MIXING up the learning can lead to BETTER brain engagement and a more capable child! Our M.E.S.S.Y. Learning program’s main goal is to assist young children to integrate preschool learning.
2. E IS FOR ENGAGING - Engaging Activities that Challenge Young Minds
We recognizes that in order for learning to be effective, it must be engaging for young children. We integrate a variety of subjects & activities in each course. You child will read original M.E.S.S.Y. Learning stories with engaging pictures, plot, and questions. She will also receive a well-designed matching preschool workbook with a variety of preschool learning activities, such as:
– Pattern and sequencing games
– Fun maze and treasure hunt games
– Matching games
– Dot-to-dot games
– Drawing, writing, cutting, tracing . . .
– Memory games
– I Spy or Find Me games
– Guess who I am games
3. S IS FOR SIMPLE - simple 1-2-3 LESS STRESS, MORE LEARNING!
Simple Learning 1-2-3 Steps:
M.E.S.S.Y. Learning is a semi-structured, parents-guided, child-directed learning experience. The program is designed to reduce the stress for young children, parents, and teachers while actually making a more effective program for your child.
We have designed our preschool learning activities where learning follows a simple 1-2-3 step approach. It allows parents, grandparents, teachers, or even older siblings to engage with the child while they are learning.
Mommy, Daddy, and Me!
Dahu is Missing!
-STEP 1: STORYTIME – Parents, grandparents, or teachers can read our original educational stories to your child. Preschoolers toddlers may also watch read-to-me stories.
-STEP 2: LEARNING TIME – Your child completes a variety of activities in a corresponding preschool workbook.
-STEP 3: CREATING TIME – Your little one will create simple arts or crafts projects that they can then share with others.
We recommend ~ 30 min a day; 2-3 times a week for M.E.S.S.Y. Learning time.
4. S IS FOR SMART – SMART DESIGNS FOR CREATIVE & FUN LEARNING
In today’s world, children have a lot of opportunities to engage with technology. There are a number of online preschool learning websites parents and children can use.
But the goal of M.E.S.S.Y. Learning is to minimize screen-dependent learning and memorization-based learning. This means our M.E.S.S.Y. Learning activities are designed in an innovative way that is appealing to preschoolers while encouraging creativities. That is why all of the M.E.S.S.Y. Learning reading books, read-to-me story videos, workbooks, and art projects are carefully thought out and designed with the developing preschoolers in mind.
5. Y IS FOR YEAH – IT IS A NEW WAY TO LEARN. LET’S ROCK IT!
While M.E.S.S.Y. Learning is based on proven early brain development scientific discoveries, it actively seeks NEW ways to engage young children.
The most important thing for high-quality preschool learning is to provide preschoolers unlimited opportunities to explore NEW topics and NEW activities. It helps a child to develop an interest in learning and encourages them to be creative. NEW experiences also help keep learning fun and exciting for both child and parent.
Every month, young children will receive a NEW course, read a brand NEW short stories for children, watch 1-2 read-to-me story videos, complete a series of NEW activities in a colorful preschool workbook, and create NEW arts and crafts projects.
All it is supporting the natural way that children learn – observing an individual child where they are at one place in time and being the support network for them and their brain.
Your child will love it!
