Celebrating Brain Building during Family Engagement Month
Why Celebrate Brain Building?
We celebrate Brain Building because:
- Children’s brains grow the most rapidly the first five years of life!
- 90% of brain growth happens before kindergarten,
- Parents are children’s first and most important teachers and
- Families have what it takes to be brain-builders!
Build Brains with Vroom®
Vroom® is a global early childhood initiative that empowers parents/families/child care professionals to turn everyday moments into brain building moments with children birth to 5. Vroom is based on the latest brain science and is designed to fit into the busy lives and everyday routines of families.
