A) About Quantum Cards

What are Quantum Cards?
Quantum Cards are learning tools aimed at your child’s early brain development. They are encyclopaedic knowledge flash cards used for Early Child Learning.

Who should use Quantum Cards?
Quantum Cards are designed for children between the ages of 8 months and 6 years. For maximum effect, they should be used as early as possible, i.e. at the age of 8 months.

How will my baby benefit by using Quantum Cards?
Quantum Cards are designed to fulfil two important purposes (i) early sensory development, i.e., Visual and Auditory; and (ii) accumulation of encyclopaedic knowledge and facts.
The brain grows most rapidly during the first six years of life. During this time, sensory experiences play a critical role in this process. By using Quantum Cards, your child gets the required visual and auditory stimulus that accelerates their brain development.

Why do I need to start teaching my child so early?
A baby’s brain grows to 90% of its adult size by the age of 5. What your child learns by then has the potential to shape who they will be as an adult. Children, till the age of 6, learn things much faster and have a higher retention rate. Contrary to popular belief brain growth and development is a process that can be speeded using the right tools and by giving your child the right environment. Intelligence is a function of environment and not heredity.

 

B) Using Quantum Cards

Who should be using the Quantum Cards with the Child?
Quantum Cards are age agnostic. Our wide and differentiated variety of topics, backed by authentic encyclopaedic content and our great visuals, make them appealing for children of all age groups, not to forget some adults too. Our set on Impressionist Paintings has been a huge favourite among Parents!

What is the right age to start using quantum cards?
One can start using Quantum Cards with their child as early as 8 months. They have been designed specifically to stimulate the unformed visual pathway in babies. The visual and the auditory pathway (What they see and what they hear) are two of the most powerful pathways to stimulate the brain. It’s important to start early as the first 5 years of the child’s life are the most important years for brain development and growth.

When should I use Quantum Cards?
For maximum effect, Quantum Cards should be used when both the child and the parent are in a happy and excited mood. So, catch you child when they are feeling energized and enthusiastic.

How to use Quantum Cards?
Following are step-by-step instructions on using Quantum Cards:

  • Take one full set of 10 Quantum Cards.
  • Sit about an arm’s length (approx. two feet) from your child so that you and your child are facing each other.
  • Place the cards in front of you. Start by enthusiastically introducing the topic, for example “I have some Musical Instruments to show you!”
  • Then, one by one, quickly move the back card to the front and announce its name, for example “piano,” “cello,” “bass drum,” etc. Moving the back card to the front instead of the other way around allows you to look at the name before you present it to your child.
  • Flash through the whole set of ten cards as enthusiastically and quickly as possible. The whole process should take about 15-20 seconds. (Note: If you child is able to speak, allow them to repeat the name after you present it to them. This allows you to check their pronunciation and also helps them remember better).
  • Children love learning quickly and without anxiety, so try to make your sessions very fast, fun, organized, and enthusiastic.

How often should I use Quantum Cards?
Each set should be used three times daily. Make sure you shuffle the cards every time you use them.

How often should I switch between different sets?
Switch to a different set of cards every 7-10 days to maintain variety and to keep the child engaged.

When should I use the Encyclopaedic Facts?
Once your child has been properly introduced and is able to remember the names, you can start by reading out the encyclopaedic facts from the back.
