Brain Wonders: Nurturing Healthy Brain Development from Birth

Learn what you can do in everyday moments to help your baby develop healthy brain connections. From Magic of Everyday Moments — Series 1.

A robust body of research has confirmed what parents have always known by instinct: that magic in everyday moments – showing affection, comforting, and playing with children – helps build strong healthy brains.

The first three years of a child’s life are uniquely important because this is the most sensitive period for brain development. The experiences a child has during this time will shape the architecture of her brain and build the connections that allow her to develop lifelong skills like problem-solving, communication, self-control, and relationship building, that will allow her to survive and thrive within her family, community, and culture.
