What makes SHICHIDA different from the rest?

Shichida is a world-renowned teaching method backed by more than 60 years of evolving research into early childhood brain development.
The curriculum is age-specific, tailored to children’s attention spans and brain capabilities. At Shichida Australia, we fill in the gaps left by traditional education systems to equip our students with well-rounded skills that they can use for the rest of their lives.
The Shichida Method is unique in that it also teaches skills most often associated with the right brain such as empathy, creativity, intuition, imaging and photographic memory. With all the research behind us, we invite parents into the classroom to learn how to become their child’s first and best teacher.

Examples of Shichida early learning activities
favorite
Intuition Games

Children are naturally intuitive. We help them get to know and trust their instincts so that they may grow to listen to and trust themselves throughout their lives.

Image Training
Children learn to calm their minds and focus their imaginations to visualise themselves in a variety of situations and imagine walking in different shoes. They use these techniques to improve empathy, visualise their goals clearly and inspire creative thought and writing.
extension
Working Memory
Children at our early learning centres have impressed many people with their incredible memories. We ingrain proven mnemonic devices and photographic memory skills so that our students will find any future learning and study easy and stress-free.
library_books
Flashcards

Flashcards are designed to engage the subconscious and expose the children to a large variety of topics, vocabulary and mathematics. When the children start talking, they often express a keen curiosity for and awareness of what they have seen at Shichida.

lightbulb_outline
Critical Thinking

Our early childhood critical thinking activities help to build up one of the most valuable of life skills. Shichida critical thinking activities include mazes, puzzles, hands on activities, tangrams and open-ended questions to help your child think creatively and independently.

speaker_notes
Literacy

Shichida children gain confidence in literacy by practising phonics, exploring alphabet letters in many ways, reading and making up stories and using their fantastic memories to build an extensive vocabulary. We empower children with the tools to express themselves in both written and verbal form.

format_list_numbered
Numeracy

At Shichida, our children learn to love maths and numbers! We have creative ways of introducing numeracy to the children that explore numbers from different angles and in hands-on ways to instil a passionate understanding of maths and numeracy. Children don’t fear maths as a subject when they attend Shichida classes.

music_note
Music

By regularly listening, singing and playing instruments, your child learns to appreciate music, gain a sense of rhythm and express themselves. Many of our children have developed perfect pitch through our music activities.

extension
Fine Motor Skills

Children develop their fine motor skills through a variety of activities. We start with fingertip training and then build on that foundation by using chopsticks and scissors to train kids to hold their pencils with the correct grip. Fine motor skills are also directly linked with helping the brain grow.

  • This program isn’t like your standard music class or kinder gymnastics. It’s a whole-brain training program that uses puzzles, games, flashcards and songs to develop young children’s memory and problem-solving skills to give them the best start in life. The main thing for us is that my kids think it’s really fun. They love learning and what I love about the program is that they don’t see it as a chore. They get a real sense of achievement from all of this. Some people ask me if I’m trying to raise geniuses – I’m not. I just want to give my kids the best chance to succeed in life. I wasn’t exposed to these sorts of activities when I was young. I was always a really keen learner, but never knew anything like this. I wondered if I had been exposed to these activities, would I be doing something different now?

    Michelle (mum of 3), Alric (8 years old), Jensen (5 years old) & Elise (3 years old)

  • Matilda has always been hungry for information, she's a little firecracker, and Shichida just seems the perfect fit for us. She loves the mazes, and puzzles, and I've found that even without us trying to incorporate the learnings at home, she is bringing them home with her on her own. For example we have a giant tub of bug toys, and sometimes I'll see her playing with them and she has them grouped into their colours. Then the next time it will be by their size, or their type … the grouping and ordering of things just seems to come naturally to her now. I just feel like it's a really great start for kids, I want to fill her brain while it's in this sponge-stage, I don't want to miss this window.

    Suzanne (mum of 2) & Matilda (3 years old)

  • Illy was born with Down Syndrome. Like any parent, we wanted to give her the best chance in life and started exploring therapies for her. When Illy was 6 months, we enrolled her into the program and she was there for the next 4 years.
    The program has had a significant impact on Illy, especially in the areas of memory boosting and the ability to focus on activities for long periods of time. She never experienced any problems transitioning from childcare to Kinder and then to school. She also scored close to normal IQ levels in her assessment. Her therapists are always in awe of what she is capable of doing.
    Illy is now in Grade 1 and progressing well with her reading and socialising. I highly recommend Shichida to parents of special needs children. They will benefit from the nurturing environment and fun and stimulating activities. Start them early to fully benefit from the program. We are forever grateful to Shichida for all they have done for Illy and our family.

    Angeline (mum of 2 & Illy (5 years old)

  • The Shichida method is amazing for the developing child's brain. In the initial years, they 'learn how to learn', and as the years go by we could see how these amazing fast processing and memory skills helped our children thrive in their learning journey. They prove to themselves that they can learn anything, and keep applying these skills to just about anything they encounter in life.
    Our 3 children having started as babies, have always loved their Shichida classes as it is done in a way that is always fun. We live as a multi- generational family where Grammy spent the most time with them as babies and toddlers. The best thing we did was to include her in attending classes with our eldest son, so we could get ideas of how to make every day filled with learning opportunities. Both parents and grandparents understood the methods, were supportive of the things they were taught weekly and follow through the learning at home. We have recommended the Shichida method to family members and they are also observing similar things in their little ones too.

    Brenda (mum of 3), Solomon (9 years old), Rafael (7 years old) & Johanna (1.5 years old)

  • I attended Shichida in 2009, and I now find myself reaching VCE. My two siblings had also attended Shichida after me, and we can all testify that Shichida had helped us to reach the point that we are at now. Shichida brings a new style of thinking and encourages a love of learning. It provided me with a solid foundation for primary school and allowed me to easily grasp new concepts and ideas. Even 12 years later, I still remember going to Shichida being the highlight of my week. I had recently returned to do work experience with Shichida, and although some things may have changed over the years, and I can say that the passion and drive in the teachers, as well as the fun songs and activities, have retained the same energy that just makes every child want to learn.

    Natalie, 16 years old, Year 10 student at MacRobertson Girls’ High School

  • I had the amazing opportunity to be both an instructor and a parent at Shichida. Both of my sons were able to go through the Shichida Program. It was one of the best things we did for them. It truly set them up for life. We moved back to Japan to be with family and because of the many years of Shichida, it has helped them be able to succeed at school here. If there was one thing I could recommend to parents considering Shichida, it would be: don’t put it off. Yes it might be hard, it might take your time, but it will be the best investment of time you can give to your growing child’s mind. Shichida will give them to confidence to keep on learning, because they will know that they can do anything they put their minds to.

    Aaron (dad of 2), Jun & Sho

  • After 8 years of finishing up the program, I still remember the usage of the memory mnemonics taught. I have recently relooked at it and put it to good use. It really help with memorising numbers that can save you a lot of time, such as page numbers in a book or a new passcode you set. It also help with mental maths when multiplying three digit numbers.
