What is the Real Measure of Intelligence and Success? | Progress Preschool Gold

Once upon a time when I was still a child, my parents always pushed me to believe that in order to have success in life, you would need to focus in one aspect and excel in 3 subjects- Academics, and the subjects are Science, Math and English. All the other things like extra curricular activities and MAPEH are of not much use, or so they thought.

In time, I learned that I do fairly average on maths and sciences and excel more in English, arts and the theater. But my parents are still insistent that I get better in the first 3 subjects I mentioned since as they said, it would be my pathway to success.


As for today's generation, I see that success isn’t solely based on how good a child is in math or science; giving the chance to recognize a child's ability to be good at other things as well will eventually create a generation that possess multiple intelligences. And a big thanks to Progress Preschool Gold for seeing the potential of these so called Multiple Intelligence.

Leading with Multiple Intelligence

This edge is perhaps best exemplified by some of this country’s young multi-achievers who were recently recognized at Progress Pre-School GOLD’s Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day. Among them are Sofia Pablo, whose excellence in academics is complemented only by equally impressive achievements in dance and sports.

Cedric Rafael Uson, whose potential for leadership and the arts are notable.

Sean Clarence Cai, who consistently impresses others with his propensity for numbers and excellent interpersonal skills at such a young age

Luis Raphael Danao, whose academic achievements are rivaled only by his passion and excellence in sports.

Ciara Russegger, whose athleticism and academic inclinations prove that a seamless integration of brain, body and people smart is possible with the right support.

Kim Atienza, multi-achiever and Commencement speaker in the Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day, also expressed that his well-rounded character has been key in achieving success in life. He mentioned a few things that he did in his youth, like doing ballet, voicing out anime cartoon characters, doing a lot of sports in his speech (which incidentally meant that he held a whole lot of intelligences, from being people smart, body smart and brain smart as well) that equipped him to confidently engage with the world and readily accept challenges with family, passions, and career.

Improving access to Multiple Intelligence

To better the access to Multiple Intelligence, Wyeth has partnered with the Reading Association of the Philippines (RAP), which is a non-government organization committed to improve all aspects of the national reading programs and teaching procedures through teacher-training and research.

Moving up and choosing Multiple Intelligence



Alongside the said graduates earlier, we moms are also taking the first step to recognizing and supporting a more progressive approach to parenting as experts prove that young minds gain knowledge through play, direct experience and social interaction. Thus the graduation ceremony, togas and such. :)


Activities have become open-ended and interdisciplinary and the more kids exposed to different fields and interests, the more they are able to perform better and beyond given measures.


"With multiple intelligence, you don't just go one step ahead, you go twice as far," says Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, Multiple Intelligence advocate.


Progressive moms have a partner in Progress Pre-School GOLD as they further support the development of their child’s multiple intelligence. Progress Pre-School GOLD is now with its best-ever GOLD Biofactors System with higher levels of DHA, Choline and Lutein to support a child’s multiple intelligence.
