BRAIN DEVELOPMENT Babies are born with 100 billion brain nerve cells, also known as neurons. In utero, the brain is producing trillions of neurons and synapses than are needed (synapses allow the brain cells to communicate and connect to each other). During the first few years of life, the brain goes through an amazing transformation, where it starts to eliminate communication connections that are rarely or never used. However, connections that are used will get stronger and become permanent. It is thought by some psychologists that parents have a special window of opportunity to help shape their baby’s brain during the first few years of life. Your baby is ‘tuned’ in to your voice inflections, tender touches and love. They experience their world through you. We now know you can engage your baby with conversation from birth. The way they look at you, the expressions and sounds they make, are indications of what they are learning. The more you interact with your baby, the more brain connections will be formed. more info
VALUE OF YOUR VOICE Parents are their baby's first educator. Upon observing parents and their babies, parents are noted to make face and eye contact while innately speaking in a softer voice using simple language. Women in particular seem to naturally use this parentese style when speaking to their baby. Babies have an ability to listen more intently and prefer the sound of their own mother's voice. To a baby, their mother's voice has a unique quality in comparison to other mothers, and the baby can tell difference. more info
BENEFITS OF REPETITION Repetition is a technique used for language learning. The expected reward of repetition is that your baby may grasp information quicker. How? Through associations made through repeated word usage combined with sound and image. Think about how you will hold something, look at your baby and repeat the name of what you are holding. Not long after, your baby will be repeating that name when you hold that same item. Why?more info
BENEFITS OF MUSIC It is a known fact that the auditory system of babies forms early. The ear is the first sensory organ to develop brain connections. During the first few weeks in utero, as the infants are growing so is their ability to process sound. By the time a baby is born they can recognize the sound of their parent’s voice and can identify songs and melodies. According to an article done by Angela England, “Even preemies show a preference for soothing classical music over harsher rock beats and studies done in Neonatal Intensive Care Units with premature infants show that soothing music from the Baroque period can lower the blood pressure and stress hormones of these young infants.” more info

Benefits of Rhyming What's so important about rhyming? Well, hearing rhyming words help to build pre-reading skills that assist children decode words in context. Learning word families that sound the same help children interpret words in text. For example, if a child knows the word bat and that child understands word families, they will likely be able to figure out words such as cat, hat, sat, mat and so on. Some of the fun situations presented in the silly rhymes provide children with added ability to appreciate and begin to recognize humor, as well. more info
