JLTP Learning Outcome
An improvement of 75% – 167% in students’ creative and critical thinking abilities was recorded after one year’s learning with JLTP.
The key areas of improvement noticed by parents from children’s daily life include:
- Children are better prepared to ask questions (Inquisitiveness)
- Children start to think of creative ways of doing things (Inventiveness)
Improvement on Creative and Critical Thinking Abilities
And the answer is yes, you can. If the child is exposed to creative thinking at an early stage, and the brain is taught the creative thinker’s mindset, the child will continue with this pattern of thinking throughout his life – questioning the norm, exploring all possibilities, and never yielding to conformity. – Dr John Langrehr, researcher of creative and critical thinking.
The John Langrehr Thinking Program (JLTP) aims to help young children to think for themselves. It does this by helping them invent their own creative ideas (think creatively) and to ask themselves questions that help them judge choices in information (think critically). JLTP teaches a wide range of creative and critical thinking skills, as well as the motivation and preparedness to use these skills throughout later schooling and in the world of work.

Critical thinking and creativity will prepare your children for school and life. Their minds being like a sponge, young children are highly perceptive and questioning, always seeking explanations and exploring new ideas. It is thus vital that the mindset and skills associated with creative and critical thinking are embedded in them during this period, before the rigours of school and growing up constrain them. These life-skills will then persist even in their adulthood.
Today’s children are inundated with information from the television, radio, internet and other media. They need to be able to sieve the information for what’s relevant and apply to their lives, but on the other hand, children also have to be able to come up with fresh ideas to meet society’s changing needs…
The game is changing. It isn’t just about math and science anymore. It’s about creativity, imagination, and, above all, innovation.
