From the beginning of the Shichida early education program, when our students are six months old, we encourage the development of a child’s trust in their own intuition. This skill, sometimes called “trusting your gut” or “trusting your instincts”, is necessary for our students to have success in other aspects of our advanced learning program.
Luckily for us, babies have not yet learned to question their intuition, which is why we believe it is so important to start helping our students grow these skills early.
Our intuition training games prompt children to choose between two to three equally likely options using different forms of intuitive sensing. For example, students might be asked to find a toy that is hidden in one of three identical boxes.
As students progress through our early learning program, they can quickly—and often correctly—find the item or image they are looking for. We have found that when students trust in their intuition, they also have greater success and improved confidence in subjects like literacy and numeracy.
