The Growing Brain July 2021.png

The crucial development of the growing brain is one of the most important topics in early childhood development. Research on the topic is exploding, underscoring the need for early childhood professionals to stay up-to-date on brain development and strategies to best support the growing brains of the infants and young children in their care.

ZERO TO THREE’s The Growing Brain is an innovative professional development that provides a toolkit of how the brain develops, along with science-supported practical ways that early childhood professionals can encourage healthy brain development in children from birth to 5 years old.

This training curriculum covers:
        • both the architecture and neurobiology of brain development
        • supporting language, cognition, prosocial behavior, and social-emotional development
        • reducing toxic stress that can negatively influence brain development of very young children
