HeadsUp!® Child Development Centers recognizes the astonishing capabilities of very young children and offers games and activities that encourage the development of fundamental thinking skills. These skills are the source of physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. The HeadsUp!® program encourages children to become conscious of and take pride in their emerging competence. By becoming aware of the skills he or she has, a young child is better able to use them.
