Progress Pre-School GOLD Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day

Green Bulb Public Relations, the communications agency of Wyeth Nutrition, Progress Pre-school GOLD invited me to Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza on March 26, 2015 (Thursday), 2PM.

The email stated:

Congratulations! You are chosen to represent the Filipino moms as we all graduate to a higher standard of intelligence as we envision a progressive future. 

The commencement speech will be delivered by a Mult-achiever himself, Kuya Kim Atienza and we will be joined by multiple intelligence advocate moms Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez and Jenni Epperson.

Join us in our advocacy as we build a generation of kids who will use multiple intelligence to make a difference.”


I am so happy that I was one of the chosen mom to attend this prestigiuos event and witness the recognition of the Multi-Achiever children. 

So what are Multiple Intelligences anyway? Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University, developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences in 1983 to help educators, psychologists and parenting experts better understand how children process and learn information.

According to Gardner’s theory, one form of intelligence is not better than another; they are equally valuable and viable (Gardner, 1983). Yet, he discovered that different cultures are biased towards and against certain types of intelligences.

Characteristics of Multiple Intelligences
Remember, we are all intelligent to varying degrees in all seven ways. Each person has a unique profile. You may be very strong in one or two intelligences, medium in a few, and perhaps weak or empty (not yet filled) in one or two. Consequently, you may have four or five intelligences that are equally developed and two that are less developed. The important thing is to identify and build on one’s strengths to modify and increase the less developed intelligences in ourselves and in children.

What Intelligences does your child possess?


(Body Smart). This child excels in more than one sport, taps or moves when required to sit still, can mimic other’s body movements/gestures, likes to touch objects, enjoys physical activities and has excellent fine-motor coordination.

(Brain Smart). This child focuses in school, enjoys reading, has an extensive vocabulary, prefers English or Social Studies over math and science, learns a foreign language with ease, is a good speller and writer, likes rhymes and puns, and communicates his thoughts well.

(People Smart). This child enjoys socializing with friends, is a natural leader, is caring, helps friends solve problems, is street-smart and understands feelings from facial expressions, gestures and voice.

The Mission of Progress Pre-School GOLD advocates the multi-dimensional way by which young children grow and develop, enabling them to realize their full potential and prepare them for lifelong learning and success.


Before the ceremony, food was served outside the Auditorium. I am with my 2 children, Ashley and Allen, during the event.

I believe a child’s multiple intelligences can be nurtured and fostered with proper care, and this involves making sure your child is getting the nutrition he needs — all the vitamins and minerals he or she needs to grow up healthy and smart!

I also notice that she is good in memorization specially songs like “Tomorrow” “Isang Lahi” “Somewhere Out There” and can deliver the tune and rhythm so well. And now she already memorize the song “Kapag Tumibok ang Puso” with action. At her young age she already performed 3 mall guesting with a song number. She has been awarded as the “Bibong Batang of the Year 2013 by Baby Expo Philiipines” at SMX MOA on December 7, 2013 because of her being bibo on Color Definition, Alphabet Hand Signs, Modelling.

And as early as 6 months old I have thought her to do Baby Sign Language which is doing the standard hand gesture to communicate even before she speaks. She has been awarded as a “Kid Inventor” for being creative and discovering new games out of simple step pad. She already doing auditions for TVC using “WOW ACTING” which means that you say, do facial expression, and intonation with the word WOW in a happy, sad, confuse, angry, surprise, afraid, confident way. She was featured in TV Program Magpakailanman as the daughter of Christopher De Leon and Jean Garcia it was the climax of the story on which Ashley needs to pretend she is sleeping and cry aloud while her parents gave her away.
