The human brain is made up of intricate and fragile parts that govern the entire body, making it increasingly important that a child’s brain development be treated delicately and carefully. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Austin, we are experts in child brain development. We have many years of experience in supporting the development of children’s mental and physical health. Based on our research and experience, we have carefully put together some useful information regarding what makes up a child’s (and an adults) brain.

Parts of the brain:

The brain is made up of three parts:

  • Cerebrum: (consists of two parts the left and rightcerebral hemispheres)
  • Cerebellum: (motor control and cognitive functions)
  • Brain stem: (controls body movement, breathing and heartbeat)

At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Austin, we know that you can divide these additionally into the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, the temporal lobe and the occipital lobe, each of which have different functions. Our curriculum provides targeted activities designed to stimulate each individual lobe for a well rounded education.

How the brain is used:

Lobes of the Cerebral Cortex

The Parietal lobe is associated with movement, recognition and perception of stimuli.

The Frontal lobe is associated with planning, reasoning, movement, parts of speech and problem solving.

The Temporal lobe is associated with memory, speech, perception and recognition of auditory stimuli.

The Occipital lobe is associated with visual processing.

At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Austin, we are active in ensuring that all parts of your child’s brain are being stimulated through reading, active play, exploring the senses, and sign language. The brain is a very complex, delicate organ that needs to be properly developed beginning at a very young age and then be stimulated and nurtured ongoing in order to fully develop.
