It is a curriculum-based educational program that is designed to unleash your child’s fullest potential. The Art of Learning makes education fun while preparing for life-long academic achievement by focusing on metacognition and the five core intelligences/learning skills.

It is a complete program, tested by parents, teachers and specialists in the field of education. Cost-effective and easy to use, it incorporates music, puppets, interactive activities and fully-scripted lessons that only take 15-25 minutes to deliver. Targeting ages 3 to 8, it enhances their ability to learn through adult-child interactivity.

There are five core intelligence skills that are the foundation for a child’s ability to learn. These are spatial relationships, memory, thinking, concept of numbers, and vocabulary. The best learners and best achievers have a proficiency in each of these core intelligence skills.

Metacognition is the process of monitoring and managing your own thinking. Comparable to learning how to speak, your child must also learn how to process information in a way that enhances the ability to learn. By simply building on a child’s existing knowledge to teach him something new, it is more likely that the child will acquire a solid comprehension of the new skills. Therefore, the metaconginitve skills you teach your child now will lay the foundation for navigating through a life of learning.

The program includes an educational curriculum incorporating fully-scripted lessons with simple to understand instructions easily delivered by a parent or teacher. It also includes five puppets with the persona of each of the five core learning skills, music CD and other educational tools including puzzles, foam shapes, numberline, flash cards, worksheets, crayons, pencils and reward stickers.

The Art of Learning® will give your child the tools to become a successful learner throughout their school years by teaching them how to better process information and to build upon previous knowledge in order to master new subjects while making learning a fun experience. The Art of Learning® introduces your child to these skills via the progressive steps of the lessons.

The Art of Learning® was developed for children 3 to 8 years old. The lessons are designed for parents to use with one child or several children, with helpful hints and exercises for both "Little Learners" and "Older Learners".

The Art of Learning® is an educational curriculum designed specifically for you, the parent/educator, to unleash your child's fullest potential. It is simple to use with interactive puppetry, music, and educational manipulatives. Most importantly in the 15 to 20 minutes it takes to deliver the lesson, it makes education fun and exciting for the child. The Art of Learning® employs a specific process of thinking called metacognition which gives your child useful problem solving techniques.

The Art of Learning® has been trialed in both public and private schools, and in several home settings, with positive results. The school trials involved control groups and pre and post use testing, with a demonstrable (15+%) improvement/ increase in the children's cognitive skills. In the home setting, "testing" parents were impressed with their children's increased interest in learning, longer attention span, improved performance on tests, and interest in learning. Parents provided testimonials.
