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):


"Logic has always placed an obstacle before the new subconscious movements..." (The inscription of the image)

"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.

Our Philosophy

We believe that kids are intrinsically brilliant and gifted. The goal of the Brilliant Kids NYC program is a comprehensive development of a child's mind and a revealing of its hidden resources. We dilligently created learning tools and strategies to develop 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 unique approach to each and every child.

Our multi-subject curriculum rigorously targets comprehensive development of young children's mind and critical thinking. Our young students enjoy learning through fun, games and exciting educational adventures to the world of mathematics, literature, basic engineering and technologies.

We created and copyrighted the reasearch-based unique curriculum that was developed for different age groups, starting from age 2. Youngest learners of Brilliant Kids NYC start their academic journey as a chain of fun activities that comprehensively develop their logical thinking, verbal, fine, and gross motor skills. High percent of our students successfully passed Gifted and Talented test and Hunter elementary school admission process.

We care about child's health and comfort, that's why smart movement activities is a part of all our lessons.
