Studies have shown that the first five years of a child are the crucial years for growth and development. It is during these years that the brain develops dramatically – the child’s thinking becomes more complex, he can communicate more clearly, his motor abilities advance, and he begins to develop social and emotional awareness.

This is why it is very important for parents to nurture learning during this stage. In our home, we limit the minis’ screen time so they can engage in exploratory, creative and independent play.

When children engage in exploratory play they develop a perception of themselves as “explorers” – competent, confident learners who ask questions and make discoveries. – Early Childhood Education

We have also taken advantage of this sponge-like phase by enrolling the minis in classes that not only teaches alphabets, numbers and the like, but also develops their interpersonal skills. Sure, class fees take up a bit of our budget, but I’d like to think of it more as an investment than an expense.

Speaking of investing on education, John Robert Powers recently launched a new program that aims to nurture a child’s potential for success by developing values and skills that are instrumental in living a happy and fulfilled life.

The Future Leaders Program of John Robert Powers was developed based on the premise that every child has the potential for success. The program is carefully structured with the intent of creating fun classes for children that will help them develop a positive sense of self, confidence and independence.

Interesting, right? I have known about John Robert Powers way back in high school. One classmate talked about her experience there and I thought, “Do you seriously need to take personal development classes? What did she learn? How to dress up?” Looking back, I wish I joined her in her classes. I realize now that more than learning to present yourself well, John Robert Powers gives its students the opportunity to break out of their shells so they can pursue their dreams and inspire others to do the same.

That is why after being introduced to the Future Leaders Program, I knew that it is something I would like the minis to take part of.

More About The Future Leaders Program

John Robert Powers

The program is a 60-hour course (plus access to a free all-year round refresher) that focuses on personal development, oral communication and creative writing. Classes consist of a balance of child-centered and teacher-directed activities where children learn to speak confidently, convey their ideas effectively, and develop independence. Moreover, the program trains children early on to become good decision-makers, negotiators and planners.

But, what really sold the program to me is that aside from developing the child’s confidence and independence, it also teaches essential leadership values like selflessness, respect and cooperation.

What about the parents?

I had the same question when we paid John Robert Powers Makati a visit. I want to enroll my children in the Future Leaders Program, but I also want to learn how to nurture their development even at home. Well, John Robert Powers is way ahead of us on that because they also have what they call the Dynamic Parenting Workshop.

The Dynamic Parenting Workshop is designed to empower parents who seek to improve their sense of personality in general and parenting in particular. The program strives to provide parents with an alternative and proactive learning experience that, hopefully, will revitalize their view of what parenting can be.

Parents with kids enrolled in John Robert Powers are encouraged to join this workshop, but parents with no kids enrolled are also welcome to join.
