  • Improved communication between child and parent.
  • Exposure to concepts such as colors, shapes, letters and numbers in a fun way.
  • Improved skills, such as listening, language, memory and vocabulary.
  • Exposure to the world around the child.
  • Development of positive attitude, healthy behavior and social values.
  • Fostering a love of reading.
