Help Your Baby to Build A Strong Brain

From birth to age 5, our children’s brains are rapidly developing and building the neural networks that will shape their futures in profound ways. We—their community and caregivers — can help babies to build strong brains through all the ways we interact and care for them: Love them. Talk with them. Sing with them. Read to them. And show them the world.

A baby’s brain is truly amazing—forming a million new brain cell connections every second! How well a baby’s brain develops depends on the interactions and care it receives.

The first 5 years of life are critically important for building the foundation of the brain that will support a lifetime of learning, loving and living.

Every time you care for a young child, your words, your hugs, your smile, and your love form the structure on which a child builds its future.

Little Wonders is created and produced by the State of Connecticut Office of Early Childhood.
