Tools of the Mind is a research-based early childhood program that builds strong foundations for school success by promoting intentional and self-regulated learning in preschool- and kindergarten-aged children. Tools’ instructional philosophy is inspired by the work of Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky and his students, and at the same time, is rooted in cutting edge neuropsychological research on the development of self-regulation/executive functions in children.
The goal of Tools of the Mind is to help young children acquire the skills they need to set a foundation for long-term success in school through play and self-regulation. In a Tools of the Mind classroom students work together with each other and theirs teachers throughout the day. Because students are so engaged in learning and having fun while they do it, studies show that students have higher rates of academic success throughout their school careers.
