The First Five Years of a Child's Development:

What you need to know?


The first five years of your child's life sets the foundation for their future development. Quality early learning experiences and relationships stimulates their brain development by activating millions of connections in their brains.

During the first five years children's brains develop faster than any other

times in their lives. Evidence indicates the brain is particularly spongelike

during these years (Berk, 2003). In fact, most children during this time frame

can learn to speak an understand major foreign languages. This extraordinary time in your child's life builds the foundation for health, learning and behavior throughout their entire lives.

Therefore, it is so crucial during this time frame to place your child in a quality,

caring, stimulating and learning childcare setting to support and encourage this exponential growth and development in your child's life.

At Wee Care Childcare & Preschool, we are fully aware of this developmental stage and fully support your child's growth and development, especially during this window of learning.
