Toyota sponsors parent-centered learning academy

GLASGOW — Parents molded Play-Doh to resemble a brain in the Hiseville Elementary School library for the Toyota Bornlearning Academy on Tuesday.

About 15 parents attended the class. The monthly classes, sponsored by Toyota, United Way and the Prichard Committee, teach parents how to interact with their children ages 5 and under to better prepare them for the school setting. This month’s class focused on brain development and everyday activities parents can perform to enhance their children’s cognitive functions.

“Kids are never too young to learn,” said Bornlearning Academy Facilitator Leslie Spillman.

In fact, Spillman pointed out that 70 percent of brain growth takes place during the child’s first year of life, and 90 percent of the brain is already developed by the age of 3.
