Between birth and 5 years old, 90 percent of a child’s brain development occurs, and at a lightning-fast pace. Every sight, smell, sound and sensation makes an impact. Long before most children step foot into a classroom, neurons are building networks, cognition is exploding, language is developing, and the foundations are being laid for a lifetime of learning.
Outside of that five-year window, you lose opportunities you may never get back. Children who don’t develop sufficient language skills in those first years are up to six times more likely to experience reading problems in school. When children fall behind in reading, every other aspect of education suffers.
The good news is that taking advantage of this window of opportunity is much easier with Rounded Minds experienced based language programs for your child!
Every interaction a child has with his or her environment is an opportunity for learning. So why not use the environment they are already enrolled in and use it for massive learning! In the first five years, daily activities — talking, singing, reading, playing — stimulate brain development and dramatically influence future health, learning and behavior.
Some first steps are bigger than others; jump on board with Rounded Minds and get your student a leap ahead in their education!
