DescriptionTarget Audience: Educators/providers working with infants and toddlers in the Omaha Region.

We know 80% of the brain is developed by age 3, but what does that really mean?  In the early years, a child's brain develops more, and more rapidly, than at any other time in life.  Between birth and the age of three, the amount of synapses created is incredible!  This session will cover factors that influence the development of the brain and the important role educators and providers play in supporting healthy brain growth.
