Studies have shown that the earliest years are the most critical for childhood development. While there is no clear rule, development begins to slow down after around age six; by age eight a child’s brain reaches 90% of its adult weight. Although there are a variety of schools and programs guaranteeing early childhood education options, there are a number of resources parents can use to provide a stimulating environment for their children to learn in.
