Established in 1993 in Malaysia, today UCMAS has a network of 6000+ centres across 80+ countries and has trained over 2.5 million children around the world in the past 25 years. Known for its holistic development approach that fosters key cognitive skills in children, the child development program boosts brainpower in youngsters using three learning styles – Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetics/ Tactile.
Apart from strengthening math skills, the UCMAS approach promotes whole brain development and establishes foundational building blocks like memory, concentration, creativity and problem solving – core skills that inspire greater confidence and success in all subject areas. The program majorly assists Human Anatomy Development as this technique improves functionality of 5 + 5 organs i.e. Spleen, Liver, Heart, Lungs, and Kidney which in turn affect functionality of Stomach, Gall Bladder, Small Intestine, Big Intestine, and Bladder respectively.
The success of UCMAS program students, who have topped IIT entrance exams, competitive exams, and school boards, is testimony to the success of the program. UCMAS training also fosters a love for numbers and removes math-phobia that enables success in academics and entrance exams. Moreover, it ensures that the child is prepared to meet life’s challenges and achieve greatness.
