Resources to Share With Families
Share Vroom with Your Families! 

New science  tells us that our childrens' first years are when they develop the foundation for all future  learning. Every time we connect with them, it’s not just their eyes that light up—it’s their brains too. In these moments, half a million neurons fire at once, taking in all the things we say and do. We can’t see it happening, but it’s all there, all at work. That’s why Vroom is here.

Vroom turns shared moments into brain building moments. Whether it’s  meal time,  bath time, or anytime in between, there are always ways to nurture our childrens' growing minds.

Get to know more about Vroom by visiting their website
