Your child's third year is his high time for learning.

This is the time when his ability to learn math and reading starts to speed up. Because his brain connections are up to twice as fast at this age, his ability to know and perform simple exercises accelerates. He learns to use symbols and shapes, and expands his vocabulary to more than 2,000 words.

Age 3 reflects the growth, construction and blossoming of brain processes that are his foundations for learning.
