Will better use of our right brain help us develop better thinking skills? Find out what goes on during a right brain training class for preschool kids!
The recent buzz around right brain training for preschool kids prompted me to ask myself: “What motivates parents to send their kids to these classes even before starting primary school? Isn’t this something that kids pick up naturally when they start school?”
Then came the invitation from Mr Kuah Eng Liang, Founder and Principal of Heguru Education Centre (One KM and Sengkang), to sit in a right brain training class for pre-schoolers.
I was thrilled at the opportunity to review the class, as I could finally find out what kids go through during the right brain training class and decide if I should jump right in and enrol my daughter (an active toddler who’s extremely curious about her surroundings).
All about Heguru
The Heguru Education Centre is a renowned right brain training school which originates from Japan. Being an eager first-time dad, Eng Liang did his research on right brain development and training for kids when his wife was pregnant with their first child.
The Heguru right brain training method caught his attention, as he was amazed by the effectiveness of the programmes after seeing how smart and focused Heguru primary school students were.
Upon meeting the founders, Mr Hirotada Henmi and Mrs Ruiko Henmi in Japan in 2011, Eng Liang made the move to bring the Heguru right brain education method to Singapore in January 2013.
