Intellectual education is intense at infancy as babies explore the world with their senses and ideas begin to shape. Babies build knowledge by organizing, studying, and observing related objects.

The art of intellectual education should start as early as possible. At the toddler stage, we approach the first stages of intellectual education by building a strong word base and cognitive skills.

At this stage, children read and write to deepen their intellectual base of information or background knowledge. They connect patterns and cycles using mega-learning skills.
