When we understand the sequence and process by which brains are built, it’s easy to understand why starting every child out strong is a smart investment. Scientific research shows early experiences directly shape how the brain develops. Brain Building can happen anywhere, not just in a formal school or early education program. Anyone can be a Brain Builder by reading with children, asking lots of open-ended questions or engaging them in play.
