    Key Take-Aways

    We have learned a great deal about the important changes in brain development occurring in young children. Vision, hearing, language, cognition, motor skills, and social competence are all impacted by the experiences children have in the first five years of life. The adults in children’s lives play key roles in fostering brain architecture, and early childhood educators, especially, can be a dynamic factor in overall brain development and laying the foundation for literacy learning.
