Early brain development
What happens in the first few years of a child’s life can shape their whole life.
Our brains develop more in the first few years of our lives than at any other time. What happens to us when we’re very young can shape how healthy we are as adults, how we control our emotions and cope with stress and many other things.
As parents and carers we can help our child by singing, playing and chatting to them as soon as they’re born, even when they’re tiny babies.
