   Research

Studies demonstrate that an enriched, stimulating environment can enhance a child’s cognitive, academic, and social development. Providing such an environment is critical during the first five years, when 85% of brain growth occurs. Program participants discover effective new approaches to education that can:

  • Enliven learning
  • Foster problem solving, critical thinking, and cognitive skills
  • Develop expressive and receptive language
  • Introduce math and science concepts
  • Promote large/small muscle coordination, movement, and body awareness
  • Encourage social and emotional development
  • Explore individual creativity
  • Encourage motivation and enthusiasm for learning

A recent study supported through major funding from the U.S. Department of Education showed that preschool children who participated in Wolf Trap residencies scored higher on standardized tests measuring six areas: Initiative, Social Relations, Creative Representation, Language and Literacy, Logic and Mathematics, and Movement and Music.
