Educators pilot the puzzles and critical thinking question prompts with their students using existing Makerspace, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) and STEM curriculum in various preschool, elementary, high school and college classrooms.
After receiving feedback, our talented graphic designers vector sketch and transform the artwork into a 2-dimensional high resolution vibrant images. The digital downloadable designs are converted to 8.5 by 11 inches “ready to print” PDF files for instant use in color or black and white. These puzzles help develop spatial thinking and visualization skills.

"I have two children who both attended tutoring sessions and Bootcamp with The Critical Thinking Child prior to starting kindergarten. In both instances, they had such a good time with puzzles and games that I am not sure they even realized that they were learning. In addition, staff gave my husband and I many ideas, tools and games to play with our kids at home to further enhance their development. I recommend The Critical Thinking Child to all of my friends, especially those who are navigating the selective enrollment process at Chicago Public Schools. Lemi and her staff are incredibly knowledgeable and patient with both students and their parents."

"We're a long-time fan . For years, I've been telling my family and friends that Critical Thinking Child is an indispensable resource for any parent serious about their child's education. The games, puzzles and play-based activity lessons helped to develop my kids' reading, math and test-taking skills. I also like how this program stimulates critical thinking through play. It's been great to witness the academic growth and the creative ways my kids problem solve and use math thinking strategies. We highly recommend the tools and program to our family and friends. Thank you Lemi!
We're your biggest fan.

"My 3.5 year old daughter and I have been working with The Critical Thinking Child for the last few weeks. Ever since we started these sessions, I have seen a marked improvement in how my daughter thinks, draws conclusions and articulates ideas. She is now learning the letter sounds and how to read. As a parent, I love the plan that Lemi and team has put together for my daughter, after the initial assessment. It has definitely made my life as a parent a little easier, knowing that my daughter is learning and learning right.
Thanks Lemi and team. Keep up the great work. "
