Scientific research has shown that the development of a young child’s brain improves in a rich playing and learning environment. Genes provide a blueprint for the brain, but a child’s environment and experiences carry out the construction. A rich learning environment stimulates the child’s brain and challenges the different areas and functions of the brain. A child, experiencing at a young age how to combine different skills and talents, will store these learning experiences forever. Neuroscientists know that the brain contains some 100 billion neurons and that the neurons are joined together via an estimated quadrillion connections. It’s through those links that de brain does the remarkable work of learning and storing memory. By the age of 3, a baby’s brain has reached almost 90 percent of its adult size. The growth in each region of the brain largely depends on receiving stimulation, which spurs activity in that region. This stimulation provides the foundation for learning. Everything a child learns and experiences at a young age is transformed in the child’s brain into connections between brain cells. These connections are decisive for the functions the brain can perform later.
Therefore, Rolf offers, with its own product line, a complete range of ‘building blocks for the child’s brain’. Every Rolf product challenges certain skills and brings them to a higher level. Whether it concerns math or language, creative or motor skills, all areas are covered.
While playing, a child will develop its own knowledge and skills, becomes aware of its own identity and through this develops (self) confidence. A familiar and professional learning environment at school or at the daycare is therefore essential for this. Rolf gladly works together with you on the multifaceted development of young children.
The icons next to the Rolf products as displayed in our catalogue tell you exactly which areas of development are stimulated.
