Early Childhood Development

Early childhood (0 - 6 years) is an important time for growing brains. Things that happen to children during these years are building brain functions, trust, a sense of belonging, and personality. A child’s growth can be affected by any situation they are in.

Relationships are also very important to young children. They teach kids how to act with others, what is safe, and who to trust. Even the way a child is cared for affects their ideas about who they are, their ability to be social, to sympathize with others, and how boundaries work.
