Moore County’s future prosperity is directly tied to how well we prepare children to become successful adults. Together, we can build brighter futures for all children in Moore County.
Why Start at Birth?
Did you know that the most rapid period of development in human life occurs from birth to five? The first 2,000 days of life leading up to Kindergarten are critical to the success of each child, not only in school, but in life. During this time, the brain grows through sight, sound, talk and touch. A baby’s brain works on learning how to produce words—months before it will begin to talk!Every positive experience that a baby has helps its brain form important connections (“synapses”) that will serve as a strong foundation for that child’s future health and learning.
Children are not only developing cognitive skills from birth to five. Social-emotional (or “soft”) skills are equally critical for success in school, work and life.When children learn how to play with others, they build language skills and learn teamwork. Early exploration develops creative thinking and problem solving skills. Finally, access to high-quality early care and education can have a positive and lasting impact on the health of children through adulthood.
