The First Three Years

 

The brain develops most rapidly in the first three years of life. Research in the fields of neuroscience and psychology now shows that the first three years of a child’s life are crucial to lifelong outcomes.

 

The quality of a child’s early experiences determines whether a child will reach her full developmental potential. The care, nurturing and learning opportunities a child receives in the first three years of her life decide the quality of her later life, from her initial years until adolescence; they go on to have a significant impact on the quality of adulthood, too.

 

The First three years is a critical period when the brain is open to new experiences and can gain the most out of them. Every experience gained in the waking moment- a touch, a smell, a sound, an emotion- is transformed into electrical and chemical activity.

 

Since the human brain can be exceptionally interactive with the experiences, we must invest in providing an environment, rich with quality experiences for the “under-threes.” Considering the fact that the brain develops most rapidly in the first three years, at a speed never reached again in a lifetime, we have to start worrying about playing our role as caregivers responsibly! This is where we come in. We walk with you through this journey to make it a well-informed and (of course) a super fun one!”

Every waking moment has the potential to offer nutrition for the growing brain

The absence of appropriate stimulation can have detrimental effects

A newborn’s brain has crores of cells. Every new experience helps create connections among these cells, enabling the brain to function effectively.
