A child's most important needs

Thanks to scientists, we know how important the first five years are for your health, development, and brain.

After the first year, the babies brain is almost double in volume. By age seven, it's nearly 90 percent the volume of an adult brain. Young brains can create practically one million neural connections every second.

  1. Connection
  2. Talking
  3. Playing
  4. A healthy home
  5. Community

  • Games like peekaboo build memory and trust.
