As parents, we cannot think of a better program to send our fourth grade son to in the Naperville area than Kid Innovation College. Mr. Horner utilizes creative, higher level thinking, FUN games to guide the children as they learn and practice cognitive strategies to solve problems. The children are fascinated by Mr. Horner’s humorous stories that he animatedly shares to teach important life lessons and thinking strategies. Every day after Kid Innovation College camp, our son would have a funny “Mr. Horner story” and an exciting thinking game that he wanted to share with us. Our son made sure that his calendar was clear in February so that he could participate in KIC the following June.
Mr. Horner’s teaching approach is consistent with the philosophy “Give a man a fish and you have fed him for today. Teach a man HOW to fish and he can feed himself for the rest of his life.” Mr. Horner teaches his students how to think not what to think. Our son will be able to apply these thinking skills to any problem that he encounters throughout his lifetime, long after he would have forgotten any facts that he might have memorized in other programs. We feel truly fortunate that our son has the opportunity to learn life lessons and develop his higher level thinking strategies by attending Kid Innovation College. We highly recommend KIC!
