Superhero Theme

Cambodia has experienced decades of conflict. Surprisingly, children commit many crimes, mostly because older children force younger children to steal. Believe it or not, if a child is caught committing a crime such as stealing, they are charged as an adult. I know it seems shocking, but it doesn’t matter how young a child might be, but they will be immediately detained and separated from their family. This is a serious problem in Cambodia.

This your chance to decorate and get your children excited about learning! The children of Cambodia need a place to feel a sense of belonging, a place to express themselves, and a place to feel safe and loved.

The Power of Play

Why have a play-based classroom?

A play-based classroom is an effective environment for children to reach their fullest potential in all five domains: social, emotional, creative, physical, and cognitive. Play is children’s work. A play-based environment keeps children engaged and creates a desire for learning. A love of learning advances all domains through acceptance, affirmation, and exploration through a play-based environment.

What Food Does To The Brain?

Categories // Teaching Aids, Teaching Children - Cambodia

What Food Does To The Brain?

Nutrition affects a child’s IQ, learning, concentration, sleep, and behavior.  In order to build a healthy brain, a child needs balanced blood sugar, certain essential fats, vitamins and minerals.

Balanced Blood Sugar

Our bodies have a love/hate relationship with sugar. Of course, extreme sugar intake is bad. Too much sugar can cause children to be hyperactive and make it difficult for them to focus. On the other hand, we need sugar in order for our bodies to run properly. If children don’t have enough sugar they may feel tired and short-tempered, making it hard to focus. Most importantly, everyone needs a balanced amount of sugars such as glucose, which is vital to the brain, because it fuels billions of neurons, which keep us alive.
