Emerging Research on Early Brain Development

Research on early brain development has accelerated in the past few years, using a variety of technologies, including LENA technology. Among the key findings are that conversational turns (back and forth interactions between adults and children) are even more important than just the number of words. Researchers have pinpointed the precise areas of the brain affected by language and found that those areas are key to not only cognitive growth, but also to social and emotional health. It turns out the amount of language experience a baby has affects how fast their brain processes, and that in turn drives vocabulary acquisition.

Elevating Early Childhood Educators

A child's first five years are the most critical for neurological development, making early childhood teachers critical to preparing children for school and life. However, the field suffers high turnover rates. While pay is a primary concern, opportunities for growth, development, and recognition are also important to building morale and increasing knowledge and competencies in an effort to build a stronger early childhood workforce. By creating opportunities for teachers to achieve recognition, obtain professional development, experience strengths-based coaching, and participate in co-creating goals, Directors and Administrators can elevate the profession, build capacity, and increase quality of early childhood programs. In turn, this delivers positive outcomes for children in your programs.
