The first few years of life – between birth and kindergarten – are when a child’s brain will grow the fastest. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, parents are home with their children now more than ever. Parents, it’s important to know that you were made to be your child’s first and most important teacher. Don’t let that scare you, your child was born ready and excited to learn. They just need your love and guidance to get a great start.
