Children and Brain Development

“Like constructing a house, brains are built upon a strong foundation. This starts before birth, and is very important during the first three years of life. Brain cells are “raw” materials — much like lumber is a raw material in building a house, and a child’s experiences and interactions help build the structure, put in the wiring, and paint the walls. Heredity (nature) determines the basic number of “neurons” (brain nerve cells) children are born with, and their initial arrangement.”

In this article Judith Graham of the University of Maine talks about brain development in the early years, the impact of the environment on children, and some tips on care of young children! One of their guidelines – recognize that each child is unique and that the pace of growth varies from child to child. That’s what we do at Safari Kid and that’s how our program is administered to the children.
