Singapore, 30 August 2017 – As an education provider, Smiling Star has always believed that the foundations for children to develop cognitively, emotionally and socially are of utmost importance. Thus, they have developed many curriculum and programmes to help children achieve better results as they grow.
As one of their initiatives, Smiling Star has announced that they will be partnering with Neeuro, a leading digital health company, to provide a unique brain training programme called NeeuroFIT to pre-schools in Singapore. Neeuro has been actively engaging youths, adults and seniors to run NeeuroFIT as a modern and unique programme for enhancing cognition.
“With NeeuroFIT, we want to give children new methods and opportunities to develop their cognitive skills and thus further expand their capacity to learn and excel in life, from as early an age as possible,” said Dr. Alvin Chan, CEO of Neeuro.
During Singapore’s National Day Rally 2017, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also highlighted in his speech that cognitive stimulation during pre-school is an important aspect of a child’s development in their early years to give them a good foundation.
The partnership with Neeuro allows pre-school children to start brain training from a young age using specially designed cognitive games and a brainwave sensor that helps in measuring a child’s focus and engagement levels. NeeuroFIT will maximise children’s capabilities with the improvement of cognitive skills, which are critical for learning, reading, focusing, and problem-solving.
“A good brain helps in having a better attention span, working memory and learning ability, as well as to perform better in creative insight tasks as they think better and clearer. Our partnership with Neeuro gives our children a head start in their educational journey and prepare them for the 21st Century and the future,” said Mr Jimmy New, PBM, Managing Director of Smiling Star.
Smiling Star will be working closely with Neeuro to provide NeeuroFIT to pre-schools and schools in Singapore as well as in Vietnam.
