Neuroscientists have documented that our earliest days, weeks and months of life are a period of unparalleled growth when trillions of brain cell connections are made. Research and clinical experience also demonstrate that health and development are directly influenced by the quality of care and experiences a child has with his parents and other adults.
Early experiences set a course for a lifelong process of discovery about ourselves and the world around us. Simply put, early experiences matter.
