Building Healthy Brains

Children's brains develop and make connections faster in the first three years than in any other time in their lives, and these early years set the stage for lifelong success. Healthy growth and development is critical for long term health, learning, and behavior. 

Young children learn through experience, and warm, caring interaction with parents and caregivers provide the stimulation that their growing brains need.

Ways to help build strong healthy brains:

  • bonding with your child though warm interactions, talking to her, and gentle touch
  • responding to his needs and emotions
  • back and forth interactions and "conversations" - even with children who aren't saying words yet
  • providing them with a safe place to explore
