Elite Kids Program
(2-6 years old)
Who is it for?
What is it about?
The Elite Kids Program focuses on the development of your child’s basic learning skills, honing them to become heightened inert strengths that make your child an expert in learning. The program focuses on 3 fundamental cognitive functions, namely the working memory, mental flexibility and inhibitory control.
Working memory is the system responsible for the transient holding and processing of new and already-stored information, and is an important process for reasoning, comprehension, learning and memory updating.
This system can be heightened by an intentional stimulation through our program.
100% of our students improve in their working memory by at least 40% after 6 months of training!
This is not a random number generated without proof, all our students are scientifically reassessed every 6 months, every single one of our parents can testify to the remarkable improvement.
Not only do parents find it worthy of their investments, children love coming to ILLAC for the stimulating and fun activities in class!
Mental Flexibility is the capacity to nimbly switch gears and adjust to changed demands, priorities, or perspectives.
Children deploy this skill to solve different problem sums, analyse different science experiments and apply different grammar rules.
In our program, we use different cultures and languages of the world combined with specially-designed puzzles that stimulate this aspect of the brain to increase performance in mental flexibility.
Children who graduate from our Elite Kids Program are highly knowledgeable about different countries in the world and they could solve puzzles with ease.
They are also much more ready for Prep P1 materials than students of the same age.
The earlier they join us, the earlier they are ready for our Prep P1 program!
We have children as young as 4 years old in our Prep P1 class and doing better than some students who had joined us only at 6 years old!
We are not referring to success rates of one or two really good students, we are referring to 100% of our students achieving better results in our scientific assessment when compared to students who had come in from other enrichment centers.
Inhibitory control is the skill children use to master and filter out thoughts and impulses so they can resist temptations, distractions and habits to pause and think before they act.
Children need this skill desperately in order to survive a classroom of more than 20 students in a conventional kindergarten, not to mention 30 classmates in P1.
Our program uses specially-adopted breathing techniques to train students to heighten their self-regulation ability. Even the music and movement that we use in class are specially chosen to train children to activate their self-regulation ability to enhance on their focus and their ability to concentrate.
Many believe in a fierce teacher or a strict discipline to ensure children behave themselves but in actual fact, the most important thing in good discipline is the child’s own ability to regulate themselves.
Above that, the teachers will do a one-on-one consultation with you so that you can be a part of the training process to improve your child’s self-regulation ability.

How do I know which level my child belongs to ?
We adopt a scientific cognitive assessment tool to determine the level most suitable for your child. Book an appointment with us now to know where your child stand.
Children are assigned into classes based on their individual cognitive achievement rather than by age so that the whole class can advance at the same pace forward!
