Modern research in neuroscience and early childhood development corroborate the foundational influence of the early years on the rest of our lives. We are continuously receiving new understanding about the incredible ways in which young minds develop. We now know that infants and toddlers have the capacity for, complex thought. According to a recent report from the American Institute of Medicine*, they can understand other people’s intentions, reason about cause and effect, and intuit the more basic aspects of addition and subtraction. We also know that the earliest years are a period of intense and rapid neural development. M.R.I. studies suggest that 80% of all neural connections form by Age 3. It is also becoming increasingly clear that a child’s ability to capitalise on these formative years is directly related to his/her environment.
