How a child develops in the early years affects their ability to reach their full potential and succeed throughout their life. The better the learning environment early on, the better the foundation for a child’s future skills building abilities. Parents and caregivers play an important role in shaping this environment by interacting with their children.
Brains are built and grow through touch, talk, sight and sound in early childhood experiences. This experiential learning starts as a baby and is strengthened through regular interaction and stimulation in the home and in quality early learning settings. Helping a child’s development during these years is critical as it sets the foundation for their future.
