Charlotte child care tips: The fundamental story of brain development

Posted on 12-05-2014


The first five years of your infant’s life are a critical time when your child’s brain is forming essential connections for learning and future academic success. At birth, your child’s brain contains about 100 billion cells which is the most brain cells your child will ever have. However, only a small percentage of these cells are ultimately connected. It is through new learning experiences and sensory stimulation that these connections, known as synapses, are formed.

During these first five years, your infant’s brain structure is highly malleable and open to formative experiences that will determine the brain’s development. If the cells receive little or no stimulation, they simply disappear and cannot be brought back. Consequently, it is essential that your child receive the proper amount of stimulation to activate these cells and build permanent, healthy synapses.
