Flower Mound child care advice: Brain development from birth

Posted on 08-28-2014


From the moment that your child is born, he or she starts learning. Every new sight, smell, taste, texture or sound is a learning experience that builds the foundation for your child’s brain structure, and his or her ability to achieve academically.

This phase of learning is concentrated in the first five years of life. During this time your child builds more neural connections than at any other period. Supporting this brain development at home and at your child care facility will allow your child to achieve their full mental potential, building a bright future.

How to support early brain development

Your child’s brain development is encouraged and guided through healthy exposure to a variety of age-appropriate stimuli. Be sure to talk to your infant as often as possible. Constant exposure to the spoken word stimulates language centers in your child’s brain, improving communication skills and vocabulary. Encouraging your child to interact with family and peers also enhances these skills, while activating socio-emotional development, empathy, cooperation, sharing and leadership.

It is important to balance variety with repetition. It is through repetition that your child learns most effectively. A trip to the new, exciting Indoor Safari Park, is filled with interesting things to look at, great activities and play areas, adding variety to your child’s life. Looking at all the different model safari animals, naming them and then looking at a storybook about them will add that essential repetition that enables your child to learn.
