Infants are born with 100 billion neurons. But… most are not yet connected (kind of like a bag of Legos that haven’t been put together). That means you – as a parent or early childhood educator – are a “brain builder.” Join us at this keynote session for a celebration of you – the brain builders of our next generation.
Laugh and learn as Nicki Patton Rowe leads you through an explanation of brain development and learning that will leave you in awe of your role as a “brain builder.” You will learn what kinds of experiences wire neurons into connected networks that form the basis of all knowledge; the importance of “serve and return” interactions; and the connection between brain development and school readiness. You will leave this session with a better understanding of why what you do or don’t do as a parent/early childhood educator during a child’s first five years impacts children for a lifetime.
