Building a strong foundation

 

"Children's creativity and play is enhanced by parents who engage with their children."

What TotSpark Brings

Play Learning Tools

We first create interest in the TotSpark Animal Friends which are at the center of all our play learning tools. Using this interest as motivation, we then expand the children’s knowledge from the simple to the more complex, from observation and the “reading” of pictures to the introduction of new concepts and words, and then to a story. 

 

The story connects all the learning in order to facilitate the children’s integration and application of the new knowledge gained. This widening of knowledge is then reinforced by encouraging the children to apply the new learning through play with the other play learning tools. 

 

A Partnership

Throughout this process, the parent plays a supportive role in the child’s learning. She allows her child to direct the learning while she serves as a guide. This leads to a learning partnership in which the child's  discovery, creativity and learning through play and conversation are enhanced, a rewarding experience for the child as well as for the parent. 

In this partnership, children are guided to expand their cognitive and verbal skills and are encouraged to follow their curiosity, use their imaginations,

explore possibilities, ask questions, offer opinions, create their own stories, express themselves and their ideas, solve problems creatively and think independently.

Innovative Thinkers Make Connections

Children expand their thinking by making connections. As they develop, they learn to make connections which help them understand the world around them.

When children make connections that are different or unusual, that is the beginning of creative thinking.

The deepest learning builds on and connects with what children have already learned.

The Power of Thinking

Children should be encouraged to think creatively and independently, to ask lots of questions and to express themselves with confidence.

Helping children gain the self-confidence 

to think independently is essential to their ability to be creative and innovative.

We use the internet and cell phone to communicate with our parents. The children use their parents, their minds and our hands-on physical learning tools to have fun and learn. The TotSpark method and play learning tools do not use electronic devices.

Intellectual  Synergy

All of our learning tools are interrelated. Each can be used independently of the others, but when used together, learning is enhanced.
