Parents - You Already Have What It Takes!
Science tells us that in the first five years, children’s brains form more than 1,000 new neural connections per second. Vroom tips turn everyday moments such as mealtime, bathtime, and bedtime into brain building moments! Our goal is to support parents with affirming reinforcing messages and tips that inspire positive interactions between parents and children and promote healthy brain development in children birth to five.
Brain Building Basics
Science made simple! Remember these 5 steps to help build your child's brain.
Children use their eyes to learn. See what catches your child's eye and talk about. Or connect eye-to-eye, then smile, chat, hug, or make funny faces!
Young children learn best when you follow their lead. Tune into your child's words, sounds, ideas, and movements! Then respond with your own words and actions.
Children's brains light up when you talk, sing, or make sounds back and forth with them. So chat about your day, food, and what's around you, or string sounds together for a fun conversation!
Children learn from taking turns when you play, talk, or explore. After they go, take your turn. Then repeat: they go, they go, you go!
Children's brains grow strong when you help them stretch their learning further. Keep a moment going: ask your child a question that starts with what, when, where, how, or why!
