Promil Four Continues To Partner With Parents In Nurturing Every Child’s Gift
As a part of this year’s celebration of the Gifted Awareness Month, PROMIL Four, in partnership with the Philippine Center for Gifted Education (PCGE), conducted a Learning Workshop, that features expert speakers in the field of Developmental Pediatrics, Clinical Psychology, Obstetrics, Health and Wellness, Arts, and Nutrition, held last November 7, 2017 at Sofitel Philippines Plaza Manila In Pasay City.
The said event is in line with the brand’s them of “Shaping the Gift to Build Tomorrow’s Greats.” It gathered celebrity and blogger parents, who participated in a series of workshops and activities in a bid to educate them on importance of building a strong foundation for their child’s learning abilities.
According to Dra. Leticia Ho, Clinical Physiologist/Neurotherapist and President of Philippine Center for Gifted Education, the future will be different for children. In the face of an ever-changing world, they will need to learn a different set of skills. The best period to nurture these abilities lies in the crucial first 1,000 days of the child, starting with the mother’s pregnancy. It is during these days that the child responds and adapts to different interventions.
“A child’s development results from an ongoing and cumulative process of nurturing. This means that your child’s brain development can be affected by both environmental and intrinsic factors,” added Ho. “This event aims to educate the parents on proper tools and approach to help shape their child’s gift. With the proper parenting, proper stimulation, and proper nutrition we believe that your child can reach his full potential”.
PROMIL Four’s Leaning Workshops highlights three different activities that show the advantage of multi-dimensional development in nurturing a child’s gift to its full potential. These activities are based on three learning zones focuses on the physical, mental and socio-emotional development.
The physical activity focused on the importance of growth and immunity to strengthen physical agility through a yoga class. As a productive meditation activity, it showed how yoga can stimulate body movement and sensory experiences for children. It also promotes multi-dimensional learning as it encourages balance and coordination, focus and concentration, mind and body connection, and self-awareness and mindfulness.
Meanwhile, the mental activity featured an art workshop developed to encourage recognition and memory. This activity focused on bringing the experience on how art can develop a child’s memory through storytelling and painting while inculcating repetitive practices and rhythms.
Lastly, the camp also has a social activity, through a giant block game, focused on the need of being socially adept for better learning. It underlined how an imaginative game can promoted strong leadership qualities in children through imagination, communication and collaboration.
Meanwhile, PROMIL Four’s Learning Camp also emphasized the importance nutrition plays in supporting a child’s advanced learning abilities. “Proper nutrition plays an essential role in your child’s brain and development. With the right nutrients, it can further support a child’s advanced learning abilities,” added Ma. Neva Luna Batayola, Medical Director.
To end the event, Dra. Leticia Penano-Ho, Present of Philippine Center for Gifted Education gave a key to take away message and that is “Every child has the talent which can be a gift if discovered and nurtured early. It is the parent’s role to make the child’s talent reach his full potential, or else that gift could just be three untapped and undiscovered.”
