We're Building Brains
We're in the business of building brains.
The first 2,000 days of your child’s life is the most rapid time of development in their life. By age 3 a child’s brain will be 80% of its adult size, and by age 5 it will have reached 90% of its adult size, which means it’s also the most important time to ensure your little one is developing to their fullest potential!
A human’s brain isn’t just born – it’s built! Positive and consistent interactions between you and your baby are key to helping them form their healthiest brain. Every moment can be a brain building moment as each connection you make sparks curiosity and brain development!
Early Childhood Programs at Child Guidance & Family Solutions are here to help you and your baby form those positive relationships early-on by providing early intervention services that can prevent consequences from early adversity.
