Three facts about your McKinney child’s brain development

Posted on 08-27-2014


At birth, your child is filled with potential. Caregivers play a vital role in helping this potential to become fully realized. Here are some interesting facts about early brain development and how you can support this growth:

1.  At birth, the majority of your child’s brain cells are unconnected:

Newborns have around 100 billion neurons. These neurons are largely unconnected with one another. Over a period of time, stimulation will cause these cells to become active, building strong connections with other brain cells. It is these connections that are key to future academic learning and a balanced, independent life.

2.  There’s a short window of time in which to activate brain cells: 

Time is of the essence for these neurons to become active. This time frame is concentrated in the first five years of life. It is essential that your child receives proper stimulation during this period. Targeting each part of the brain as it becomes active, ensures that the most neural connections are formed, strengthened and utilized.

3.  The daycare you choose matters when it comes to supporting brain development: 

The right kind of stimulation at the right time is vital. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of McKinney we understand how your child’s brain develops. Going beyond the role of traditional daycare we offer a scientifically developed program that provides exceptional early brain development.
