A child's brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three—producing more than a million neural connections each second. The development of the brain is influenced by many factors, including a child’s relationships, experiences and environment.
This workshop explores how the human brain grows and how early experiences in the first three years of life can dramatically shape and support brain development. Facilitators will challenge Educators to identify the crucial role they play in nurturing healthy brain development, answer frequently asked questions and lead participants in some fun “brain-building” activities that can be immediately implemented with the children in their programs.
