Baby's Brain Needs Fuel

The early childhood years are crucial to the quality of future life; early experiences can boost or minimize inborn potential.

Recognizing that the early years are a period of unique opportunity and susceptibility means that the environments of early childhood should be designed to aid, rather than blunt, the remarkable innate push towards growth that is characteristic of every child. Doing so, not only enhances the well-being of children, but respects them making a long-term investment in them as individuals. A society that is concerned with problems of violence or self-control should take note of the fact that the origins of these social, emotional, and intellectual qualities take shape early in the course of life. By committing to the well-being of its youngest citizens, society can promote the well-being of all.

Each month a baby will strive to perfect their motor skills. Therefore, blend physical development (fine and large motor skill activities) along with language, and social and emotional development. But the most important intellectual catalysts for children are uncoached and arise naturally from their unhurried, untroubled, sensitive encounters with the ones they love. The young mind is astonishingly active and well-organized, creating new knowledge from everyday experiences. Sensitive parenting - not educational toys - provide the essential catalysts for early intellectual growth.

An early development program for babies is very rewarding for both parents and little ones. The early stimulation for children and babies is not just a series of exercises, massages, and caresses (without a main objective). It is much more than that! Early stimulation in child care is effective when you know every step of the process of the development of the human brain.

The young child grows faster during the first three years of life than he or she will ever again! However, deficiencies in iron and vitamins owing to chronic under-nutrition in the early years can result in cognitive delays, listlessness, and diminished resistance to disease.
