Neuro Science on the brain of toddlers

Neuro-science tells us that the brain during the first years of life absorb all surrounding experiences. This is not just true for the play material but also for the people which surround a child. In the Yales University psychologists worked on some research papers. They showed children two scenes in which one figure played the nurturing and the other figure played the suppressor. In this experiment researchers discovered that the six-month-year-old child decides on the nurturing figure while in the one-year-old children 60% decide on the suppressor. Through this experiment it became very much visible how much surrounding effects the behavior of a child. While it has been nurtured in the first month of life, now when being around 1 year – a child hears more no’s and don’ts!

So when we see children which are willing to share and nurture, one reason is that they have observed others behaving like this. Of course, this is not the only one factor. Also a child’s maturity plays a certain role – but Do Not UnderEstimate the Power of Observation in children!

This is why, parents and teachers should think about what they want children to observe and thereby reflect their own behavior, ideas, mindset, ways to speak and act in daily life!

It is our responsibility to create a surrounding that nurtured and grows young children and people. Trough academic learning we may not be able to change the world and how we treat each other!

Welcome to TLI Pedagogics

Dear Reader,

Welcome to TLI Pedagogics

I am happy you found your way to this website. It shows me that your interest in high-quality childhood care and naturalistic learning is high.

The care for our children during the first five years of life is way too important to leave it to a chance. Many scholarly reports and scientific results point towards the need for “proper care” in the early years of life. This includes the best upgrade-education for teachers, educators and parents. Only then we can make the first five years of a child’s life to a life-long benefit.

TLI Pedagogics is a Research based System!

TLI Pedagogics was built on:
the personal experience in working with children,
the study of educational systems in many global areas as well as
17 years of empiric research and observation of small children by the founder Ms. Marion Hopfgartner
Later, the results of modern neuro-scientific findings could be added as they resonate with the pedagogical philosophie behind TLI Pedagogics.

It underlines the importance of Early Childhood Care from a modern perspective. TLI-Pedagogics can be used in educational institutions but also in home care by mothers and fathers, day-mothers/-fathers, nannies and others. It is not limited to a group or person but it should be followed accordingly to the system set up.

Read you soon again
Yours sincerely
Marion Hopfgartner
The Founder
