Jan 02, 2016 08:17AM
The New School of Lancaster, in partnership with Franklin and Marshall College’s Department of Psychology, will host a lecture, Building Better Brains, by Steven J. Hughes, Ph.D., created for parents with children of all ages, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., February 11. Hughes will explain how parenting styles and the organization of children’s school experiences can have a profound impact on children’s cognitive and developmental outcomes. The lecture is open to the public, and registration is suggested.
“Dr. Hughes will also share key principles that can help every developing brain attain its highest developmental potential,” notes Mary Cae Williams, Head of School for The New School of Lancaster. Hughes is the director of The Center for Research on Developmental Education, chair of the Association Montessori International Global Research Committee, and past president of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology.
For 25 years, The New School of Lancaster has been offering a Montessori education for families who seek an excellent, non-denominational, educational opportunity in a child-centered, respectful and caring environment. Students—who come from all parts of Lancaster County and beyond—range from toddlers to middle school-age.
