Early Childhood Education
90% of our brains develop by the age of 5. Before age 5 is when our brains are more flexible- learning is easiest. According to Harvard's Center on the Developing Child "A major ingredient in this developmental process is the serve and return interaction between children and their parents and other caregivers in the family or community. In the absence of responsive caregiving—or if responses are unreliable or inappropriate—the brain’s architecture does not form as expected, which can lead to disparities in learning and behavior. birth to about 5 years old is when children's brains have the most potential for growth."
