Pre-School Gold's Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day

As a parent, I always try to balance everything for my kids – like I let them do their assignments on their own and help them if they will ask me too. I let them play and explore because I always believe that through play, you can offer intellectual (Brain Smart), physical (Body Smart) and social-cultural (People Smart)  development in them. Mostly, motivate and support them so they can become the best that they can be. A chance to explore and recognize their Multiple Intelligence to help them achieve the most success.

I always try to recognize the very little things that my kids do because I now that in this little way, I'am able to show or let them feel that I appreciate and love them. Like today, Euki, son who is in Grade1, came home with this award of being The most Responsible student in their class. I was very lucky to have a seven years old responsible son.

I was very fortunate to have been invited in the Progress Pre-School Gold's Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day held at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati. Hosted by Ms. Tessa Prieto Valdez

Leading with Multiple Inteligence are the country's young multi-achievers Sofia Pablo, whose excellence in academics is complemented only by equally impressive achievements in dance and sports; Cedric Rafael Uson, whose potential for leadership and the arts are notable; Sean Clarence Cai, who consistently impresses others with his propensity for numbers and excellent interpersonal skills at such a young age; Luis Raphael Danao, whose academic achievements are rivaled only by his passion and excellence in sports; and Ciara Russegger, whose athleticism and academic inclinations prove that a seamless integration of brain, body and people smart is possible with the right support.

Also, to promote Multpile Inteligence, Wyeth with its Progress Pre-School Gold's Multiple Inteligence Advocacy united with the Reading Association of the Philippines (RAP), a non-government organization committed to improve all aspects of the national reading programs and teaching procedures through teacher-training and research.  This gives an opportunity to transform development approaches simply by highlighting  the fact that various facets of intelligence combine to create a balanced and successful child that can potentially change the world. In the event, Kim Atienza, multi-achiever and Commencement speaker in the Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day, also expressed that his well-rounded character has been key in achieving success in life. “Multiple Intelligence has equipped me to confidently engage with the world and readily accept challenges with family, passions, and career,” says Atienza.

Progress Pre-school GOLD encourages Filipino moms to move up to a more progressive approach to parenting as experts prove that young minds gain knowledge through play, direct experience and social interaction.
"As a parent, my challenge is to help my kids apply their knowledge to everyday life, not just by getting good grades but by being well-rounded individuals that are smart, creative and helpful," says Jenni Epperson, Multiple Intelligence advocate.
Activities have become open-ended and interdisciplinary and the more kids exposed to different fields and interests, the more they are able to perform better and beyond given measures.
"With multiple intelligence, you don't just go one step ahead, you go twice as far," says Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, Multiple Intelligence advocate.

Progressive moms have a partner in Progress Pre-School GOLD as they further support the development of their child’s multiple intelligence. Progress Pre-School GOLD is now with its best-ever GOLD Biofactors System with higher levels of DHA, Choline and Lutein to support a child’s multiple intelligence.
