In the Genius kid school, the original HIKARI 光 program of Mental Aithmetic is used. Hikari in Japanese means light and symbolizes the process of learning and awakening (illumination) of our mental capacities. The program has a unique method originating from Japan, a cradle of mental arithmetic. It has been formed as the result of many years of work by psychologists, pedagogues and other experts in the field of education, and is based on the use of the ancient device abacus (算盤 jap Soroban).
- TBDP (Total Brain Development Program) is a system of overall brain development that stimulates the activation of both cerebral hemispheres in the early stages of life. As a result of this activation, a series of mental abilities are enhanced, such as memory, intelligence, concentration, imagination…
- VAK method (Visual – Audit – Kinesthetic) is a method developed on the basis of neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and involves the inclusion of three senses (vision, hearing, touch) in the learning process. This technique could also be described as Visual – I see what you are telling me; Auditive – it sounds good to me; Kinesthetic (body) – show me how to do it. Scientific research has shown that the best results are achieved when in the learning process information is received through different senses because in this way the most of neuronal connections in the brain is activated. By such learning, the memory process reaches its maximum as the received information is transmitted from one brain to the other brain, thereby activating the whole brain potential.
The program is intended for children from the age of 4 to the age of 12 years (to finish school by the age of 14), because during this period the brain develops most dynamically. The program is flexible and carefully designed taking into account the individual needs of each child. Learning is practiced in small groups (6-12 participants), through fun activities, various games and competitions, with the most important relaxing and creative atmosphere and positive emotional relationships.
The goal of the program is that the child maximally awakens his mental capacities and becomes Genius Kid. Mental development is achieved in a fun and playful way, the classes are based on three key things: calculating with the help of abacus, mental arithmetic and didactic games. Using the abacus, both cerebral hemispheres are activated to achieve maximum intellectual potential. After mastering abacus work, students are able to perform complicated operations such as 235 + 64 + 361 – 97 + 196 – 98 = … without any tools, purely thought-through, giving the correct answer in just a few seconds! This ability Genius Kid keeps forever, possessing it throughout his life.
