Did You Know...
A baby is born with one billion brain cells? These cells form connections with each experience your baby has. By age two, a healthy, developing child can have as many brain cell connections as an adult.

That makes you your child’s first and most important teacher!

A child who does not receive early nurturing and proper care can suffer from physical, emotional, and cognitive delays.
