The science of
Children are born with tremendous potential.
Every parent has what it takes to be a brain builder.
In the first five years, trillions of neural connections are made—forming the foundation for future learning.
The architecture of the brain is being built from the ground up, based not just on genes but our experiences and interactions.

The science of
Three Key Scientific Principles

#1 Positive relationships
#2 Back-and-forth interaction
#3 Life skills that promote executive functions

#1 Promoting Positive Relationships

The Science of Early Brain Development

“When we talk about how the environment affects young children, we're really talking about most importantly the human environment and we're talking about relationships. There is no healthy social, emotional and cognitive progression in the absence of relationships. There is no development without relationships!”—
Jack P. Shonkoff, Harvard University

Positive relationships with caring adults are essential for brain development.
turns shared moments into brain building moments. Whether it’s mealtime, bath time, or anytime in between, there are always ways to nurture our children's growing minds.

#2 Back-and-Forth Interactions

The Science of Early Brain Development

The Brain Story
There is no time in life when the brain develops more rapidly than during the first five years. Here’s a glimpse of all that’s taking place inside your
baby’s brain.

#3 Life Skills that Promote Executive Function

The Science of Early Brain Development

being able to pay attention

being able to keep information in mind in order to use it

being able to adjust to shifting needs and demands

being able to resist the temptation to go on automatic and do what we need to do to achieve our goals

What are Executive Function Skills?
“Executive function refers to the top-down neurocognitive processes involved in the flexible, goal-directed problem solving.”
Zelazo et al., 2008

“Executive Function involves managing thought, action, and emotion to achieve goals.”-
Miyake et al., 2000

Five Brain Building Basics

Even before babies can talk, they’re showing you what they’re interested in. Look into their eyes, or at what catches their eye, and begin brain building!

Powerful brain building moments are created when you let children lead the way, and you follow by responding to their words, sounds, actions, and ideas.

It may not seem like it, but the sounds and gestures young children make are their way of communicating with you! So talk out loud together and keep chatting as your children grow, engaging them in learning about the world around them.

Back and forth interactions between you and your children are one of the most important ways to help their brains develop. So be sure to take turns while you’re talking, playing, or exploring with your children.

Make the moment last longer by building on what your child says, or asking follow-up questions that expand your child’s thinking and learning. When you stretch the conversation with questions like, “What do you think about that?” or “How does that make you feel?” you’re stretching the brain building moment too!

Everyone has what it takes to be a brain builder.

Brain building moments are all around us.

Any moment can be a brain building moment.
