What working with babies for 30 years has taught me.
By Midge Cox
A simple yet profound insight.
If working in early childhood development for 30 years has taught me one thing it is this: babies who are having fun are growing smarter because pleasurable sensory experiences are what connect neurons in the brain. It is a simple yet profound premise. That very moment you see your babies face light up with joy and excitement, his brain is making countless neurological and synaptic connections. With each giggle, each smile, each moment of lighting up – his brain is literally expanding in countless ways. My vision and purpose is to create a community center to help very young children increase their brain development through fun activities! A place where mothers (and fathers– lets not forget dad!) can come and learn and most importantly, directly participate in their child’s early cognitive development. I welcome you to read more about what our class offerings are and get in touch with me if you have any questions. Every baby is born with the same billion neurons as the next baby. Brainy Baby & Beyond is here to insure they all get an equal chance to develop into the vibrant little human beings they came here to be.
Contact with your baby activates your baby’s parasympathetic nervous system – that switches off stress; enhances digestion, healing and growth, and imprints calm and connection.
