The experiences children have in their first three years play a major role throughout their lives. Providing positive experiences in the early years can lead to higher academic achievement, better health, and greater overall well-being later in life. Dr. Nagle will provide an overview of how the brain develops. He illustrates the relationship between positive early experiences and the communities, schools and homes where children spend their time. Research has shown that children with more positive experiences in life do better in school and even live longer on average.REGISTER HERE.
