THE 4 QUOTIENTS
Executive Function Quotient:
A group of mental skills that allows one to set goals and get things done.
Executive Function (EF) is a group of skills that everyone uses to organise and act on information. These skills include impulse control, emotional control, flexible thinking, working memory, self-monitoring, planning & prioritising, task initiation and organisation. Being the Control Centre of our brain, EF is the most important part to develop as it controls all other parts of our brain.
EF has been heavily researched by Neuroscientists for over 60 years, yet seems to be a well-kept secret in education. Parents, who are teachers themselves, are sending their children to TLE because they know this is the crucial missing piece of the puzzle in education. Through fun activities at TLE, children learn how to see things from other's perspective (flexible thinking) and work together to complete tasks (planning, task initiation and organisation).

The ability to cope with stress and whatever life throws at you.
We can’t change the fact that children will face challenges in school and in life. It could be coping with everyday frustrations, sudden changes or activities they can’t handle. Instead of over-protecting them, we need to equip them with the right attitude and skills to overcome failure. Resilience is being able to bounce back from stress, adversity or tragedy and it can be nurtured in all children - and is an important attribute for success, both in school and at home.
In our classrooms, mistakes are viewed as learning opportunities and our Little Executives encourage one another as a team. They learn not to be sore-losers and support one another to be better versions of themselves. We inculcate in them a Growth Mindset, where hard work and effort pays off, and they are more ready to take on challenges because they know that even if they fail, it is a learning opportunity which they can gain from and come back even stronger.

Self-awareness and the ability be in control of one’s emotions.
This is a skill that, contrary to popular belief, can be learned and practiced. Our Little Executives are taught positive ways to manage their emotions and parents have noticed changes in their behaviour including fewer tantrums or melt-downs. As kids these days have less time for unstructured play, we provide a safe and nurturing environment for them to learn how to work together, handle differences and treat each other with respect.

One’s reasoning ability, ability to grasp concepts and connect the dots in a complex environment.
Using activities backed by scientific research, we focus on the process over product, concept over content, i.e. rather than just plain memorising content, we work on the fundamentals behind learning. This empowers our Little Executives with a set of tools that teaches them to learn better, a tool they will carry with them all their lives to remain independent and self-motivated learners.
