Toddler Geography Whiz: 3 Year Old Names 60+ World Capitals

My oldest son, 3 yrs old, naming the capitals of some 60+ countries on 6 continents. It's just he and I, laying on the floor, I'm filming with my phone, "selfie" mode, no one else in the room. I didn't prepare a list of countries, so I forgot to ask him some. This is incredibly embarrassing, but because of my recent & ongoing disability, I would welcome information about scholarships, or other forms of financial aid, that would pay for a suitable pre-school for him. Believe me, this is by far the most uncomfortable thing I've ever done, but I just don't know what else to do, so I appreciate your compassion. Thank you also for your supportive comments. I am reading your comments to Lebron and he is feeling a sense of pride and joy in his gift that is beautiful to see in a toddler. By the way, he learned geography and world capitals through his love of trains. He wanted to see trains around the world, so I got on youtube with him and we explored. Soon, he understood that a lot of trains were going to the capitals of countries, and that a lot of important things happen in capitals. So, his gift isn't a "when I say A, you say B" thing; he really has a feel for these countries, their capitals. Thank you for watching. It actually does mean a lot to him.
