Wesley Chapel Child Care: Brain Development facts

Posted on


A child’s brain development begins in the womb and continues through the first five years of life. These early years are the most important when it comes to the healthy development of neural connections that strengthen the brain.

At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Wesley Chapel, we have a high quality and unique Brain Waves™ Exclusive Curriculum that supports your child’s brain development for optimal results.

Here are a few interesting brain development facts:

  • Early development. The first brain cell starts to develop only two days after conception and will expand at a rate of approximately 500,000 cells a minute. During the second to third trimester, rapid head and brain growth takes place and all of the brain’s major structures are formed and become functional. During this time, the brain also forms connections with different parts of the body, a process that is complete by seven months. It is during this time that it is thought that babies start to recognize their mother’s voice.
  • Neural connections. The brain produces 800 neurological connections for every second it is properly stimulated.
  • Repetition is key. Repetition is the key when developing brain function; the more times a child hears a correct answer the stronger the neural pathway.

The Brain Waves™ Curriculum used by the Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Wesley Chapel has an excellent history of child care success. We have stimulating activities such as building blocks, board games, painting and puzzles. Your child’s reasoning and planning abilities are tested and enhanced when he or she works with puzzles.
