Child Brain Development
A baby’s brain is growing at a rate of more than 1 million neurons per second and that will mean that 90% of their brain will be developed before they enter Kindergarten!
Brain development and meeting key milestones can play a huge role in your child being ready to thrive in Kindergarten and beyond. Understanding these milestones can help identify developmental delays and their causes.
