Did you know that 70% of brain development occurs within the first three years of life? While that figure is incredible (and, to be honest, a little daunting), as parents it may not be so surprising considering how quickly our children seem to learn and grow every single day. However, this fact means that the first few years are imperative to the development of your child.
Guardian Early Learning Group is proud to host an evening with Dr Elanna Yalow, a world leader in the field of early learning. On Thursday 23 February, you’re invited to join us as Dr Yalow discusses a range of education issues that relate directly to your child. From Executive Function (which is essentially the brain’s air traffic control system) to School Readiness, risks to healthy brain development to the impact of quality early childhood education, this is truly an unmissable event.
