Who We are
Early Intellect is an educational company founded in 2021 providing a variety of learning resources for families with children between the ages of 3-5 years old.
Early Intellect’s mission is to emphasize the importance of nurturing children’s early development and support families as they build a solid foundation for future learning . We believe in using a play based approach and an emphasis on picture books.
Why the years between 3-5 matter
The only organ that is not fully developed at birth is the brain. 90% of critical brain development happens within the first five years of life. Every experience and interaction your child has during these first few years is laying the foundation for many aspects of their development and their overall success in academics as well as life in general. Between the ages of 3-5 specifically, many children have their first experiences with school and semi-formal learning. This is such an important time in your child’s development. When you talk, read, and play with your child you are helping to build a solid foundation for success in school and life. Early intellect is here to help support you as you buidl that foundation with your child.
