I was recently at an early childhood development seminar, and learned a little bit more about the human brain. Did you know that when most animals are born, their brains are 95% developed? When a human baby is born, however, his brain is only 30% developed. Here’s the most amazing part, though! By the time a child is 3 years old, his/her brain is 80% developed. No wonder they tell us the first three years are the most important!
What types of connections are you helping your child make in those first three years? Much of the way children will relate to the world as adults is formed in this critical time. Being surrounded by love and security now will help them feel loved and secure their entire lives. Surrounding them with music now will help them develop musical skills they will keep for life!
