Be Smart Kids incorporates the following “windows of learning” in its process as identified by scientists!

Be Smart Kids Grasshoper character

  • Vocabulary – Birth to 3 years
  • Math & Logic – Birth to 4 Years
  • Music – 3 to 10 years
  • Motor Skills – Birth to 5 years
  • Language – Birth to 10 years
  • Second Language – Birth to 9 years

The genius of Be Smart Kids is its focus on introducing the learning process during the best learning time in a child’s life: birth to age 6. This is a once-in-a-lifetime window of opportunity for learning. 


Be Smart Kids is a comprehensive, learning program that uses science, technology and best teaching practices. More than a decade of research and design has gone into the development of the Be Smart Kids Learning System, an unequaled computer-aided learning process that stimulates every area of the brain during the period when the “window of opportunity” for learning is best, ages 0-6.

Be Smart Kids meets and exceeds State and Federal Early Education Standards. Click on one of the links below for a full listing of these standards and Be Smart Kids comparisons.

Section 2 : Literacy
Section 3: Math
Section 4: Social Studies

Research has shown that early intervention with education and social behavior will help improve the quality of life for a child with autism. The earlier you start the better. Be Smart Kids is a fast-paced interactive learning system that wires the brain for vocabulary, language, math & logic, spatial/visual skills, fine motor skills, emotional & social skills, music, character, history, science, health and sign language. It is designed as a one-on-one process because adult/child interaction and bonding is so important to the emotional and social development of the young child.
