Research shows that the first three years of a child’s life is an integral part in their development. A newborn’s brain is approximate 25% of its adult brain and by three years it has grown dramatically by producing billions of cells and hundreds of trillions of connections.
There are many programs available aimed at babies to tots to assist in this development.
