After-School Programs Improve Critical Thinking Skills, Hackensack, New Jersey

After-school programs provide a host of benefits for kids of all ages, but one of the greatest aspects is the development and improvement of critical thinking skills. MindsAhead Academy of New Jersey presents BrainOBrain, an after-school program for children between the ages of five and 14. This extracurricular offering is designed to encourage the growth of many cognitive abilities.

Below are just a few of the ways the BrainOBrain after-school program engages and improves critical thinking skills in enthusiastic students:

  • Think Differently: MindsAhead Academy employs unique learning techniques—such as singing and rhyming—to encourage students to think outside the box and solve problems with ingenuity. Their English and math tutors will push your child to come up with unique ways of looking at problems, honing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • after-school programGrow Without Judgement: Exploring new and creative ways to solve problems is only possible with the guidance of supportive, optimistic instructors. Students at MindsAhead Academy are invited to come up with innovative solutions in a low-pressure environment.
  • Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions: Asking questions and maintaining a curious outlook on education is crucial to excellent critical thinking skills. In the BrainOBRain program, students are encouraged to ask thought-provoking questions, develop hypotheses, and delve further into topics to gain more information.

The BrainOBrain enrichment program at MindsAhead Academy combines time-tested tools with contemporary methods to ensure your child’s success. This one-of-a-kind after-school program makes learning fun without the stress and pressure of a conventional classroom.

By strengthening their critical thinking skills, your child’s academic prowess will improve as well. What’s more, interactions with peers outside of the classroom will serve to build social skills. The earlier they obtain these strengths, the more successful your little ones will become.
