Research-Based Curriculum for test prep and logical thinking development

We develop Spatial Visualization concepts using particular principles of the Art of Suprematism - the Russian abstract art movement developed by Kazimir Malevich c. 1915, characterized by simple geometric shapes and associated with ideas of spiritual purity.

Our projects for Spatial Visualization (G&T: NNAT-2):

"The most highly publicized mental influence of music is the "Mozart effect." Struck by the observation that many musicians have unusual mathematical ability, researchers at the University of California, Irvine, investigated how listening to music affects cognitive function in general, and spatial-temporal reasoning in particular. The researchers speculated that listening to music helps organize the firing of nerve cells in the right half of the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain responsible for higher functions. According to this construct, music — or at least some forms of music — acts as an "exercise" that warms up selected brain cells, allowing them to process information more efficiently."

We use special music arrangements to stimulate children's minds for better cognitive perception.

Jean Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development suggests that children move through four different stages of mental development. His theory focuses not only on understanding how children acquire knowledge, but also on understanding the nature of intelligence. Birth to 2 years: Sensorimotor Stage Ages 2 to 7: Preoperational Stage Ages 7 to 11: Concrete Operational Stage Age 12 and up: Formal Operational Stage. According to Piaget's Theory, the child in ages 2 to 4 is not yet able to conceptualize abstractly and needs concrete physical situations. Objects are classified in simple ways, especially by important features.

We apply Piaget's Theory in planning curriculum and activities, understanding that young children think about things in very concrete terms, especially using visual, listening and kinesthetic approach.

The Reggio Emilia Approach values the child as a strong, capable and resilient individual, rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.

We actively use the Reggio Emilia Approach while choosing materials for class work and strategies that efficiently develop children's cognitive skills and creativity.

We believe that kids are born brilliant. The goal of the Brilliant Kids NYC program is the comprehensive development of a child's mind and its hidden resources. Specially developed learning tools stimulate your child's logical, creative, and scientific thinking. We support our curriculum with elements of OLSAT, NNAT2, and the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales, in order to apply the best methods of development and a special approach to each and every child.

Our curriculum rigorously prepares young students for the Gifted and Talented test. Children enjoy learning through fun game and exciting adventures.

These youngest learners start their academic journey as a chain of fun activities that comprehensively develop their logical thinking, verbal, fine, and gross motor skills. They unaware that every academic element of this learning process is initial test preparation.
