Did you know....

.... at 18 months a child that has been exposed to direct language can begin acquiring words at the rate of one every two hours!

.... hours to an infant have more impact on a brain than months in middle age!

.... the brain is 90% of it's adult size by age 5, with connections made to create the emotional, cognitive and social foundation for life!
Tell everyone you know!!
boy and girl 
 This is the first question we ask when hearing about a new baby. We naturally know there is a difference between boys and girls. In resent years numerous interesting research has revealed differences that can exist between the male and female brain. These differences may an have an impact on learning and in relationships. Through understanding we can better provide what each young child needs.

For example: Female vision can be very different than male vision. As a result when drawing a girl may be more likely to use several colors and draw nouns. A boy may use blue, black and grey or may not use color at all. His picture may show a lot of action!  This difference in vision may also influence a the type of activity or toy a child chooses.
