Scientists have found children's brains go through a period of rapid growth during their first years, as they are learning more than they will at any other time in their life.
The way brain development occurs in a child's first years is like a game of tennis - children serve and adults return. Back-and-forth interaction is the essence of the brain development.
Research shows quality education and care early in life leads to better health outcomes and education and employment opportunities later in life.
