"Children whose minds are stimulated in several early childhood settings - home, preschool, and school - have higher achievement in elementary school. What matters is not whether children's learning is supported at home, or stimulated in preschool or in elementary school, but that all three of these occur."
This is something that I have suspected for a while now. I try to read to my kids, talk to them, expose them to new things, etc.. Beyond that, I struggle to figure out new ways to keep them stimulated mentally. I figure they are "sponges" right now so I want to give them every opportunity. Here's a kids'creative writing summer camp in Irvine that's starting up in June (2010): http://brwi.org/project-ink-summer-camp/
It's a pretty comprehensive course and it's only two hours a day. At the end, the kids' stories get put together and get made their own book. Pretty cool!
