Brain Development

Did you know…?

Children Are Born Ready to Learn

You can start talking, reading, singing, and playing with young children at birth (or even before!). Research shows that children’s brains are already developing before they are born. Babies’ experiences help build their brains and provide a foundation for later development

Children Learn Interactively

Young children learn through interaction with adults. Researchers call this “serve and return.” For example, an adult coos at a baby and the baby makes a sound back. A toddler points at an object and the adult explains what it is.
