Resource delves into brain development

Did you know that by birth the brain weighs about the same as three apples? Or that by 6 months old babies are becoming aware of their feelings?

Or that between 1 and 2 years old, a baby’s language and memory parts of the brain make lots of connections so they start talking and remembering more?

Educators and early childhood staff can use Ready Together for more insight into early learning and brain development, from before birth to five years old.
