Discussion 3.3: How can providers support early brain development?

Providers can support early brain development by providing children with a safe and nurturing environment. Children should be read to and have access to a wide variety of texts. They should participate in class songs and movement activities so they are able to make the connections that build the foundation essential for lifelong learning. Children should be provided with age appropriate materials so that they are able to manipulate their environment working their gross and fine motor skills with each activity or play space.
Children should be provided with opportunities to openly grow and explore in their environments. They should have a sense of ownership over their learning in saying what they are interested in or what they want to learn more about.

I agree and children should not be exposed to television as a means to educate. Children learn best through exploring their world and being interacted with.

As a childcare provider we can support early brain development by providing positive, stress free stimulus to the brain in a safe and consistent learning environment, we also can help reverse the traumas that a child may be experience by being kind and supportive.

Providers can support early brain development by providing a nurturing, loving, and accepting environment for children to grow in. Positive relationships with caring adults can reverse the effects of toxic stress and help babies become more resilient (learning to self-soothe and regulate emotions, cope with stress better, etc.)

3.3: How can providers support early brain development
By being present and available to the children we are able to facilitate learning by interacting and talking with them.  Unlike watching a movie, reading a book to children allows them to ask questions and follow along with the text.

Providers can help with brain development by being people that kids and learn through and with. It is helpful to not have screens at daycare facilities because kids will likely be exposed to that at home. It is important to be engaging because so much learning happens everyday and the more stimulus for children, the more they learn.

3.3 How can providers support early brain development? Childcare providers may not be able to prevent toxic stress, but early responsive relationships with caring adults can reverse the damaging effects. Babies can learn to calm and regulate their emotions if supported. In other words, the loving care you provide to young children could make a permanent difference in their mental and physical health. Keeping infants under age two from screens and children over age two less than two hours a day of television or computer can also help prevent toxic stress.

A crucial way for providers to support brain development is through human interaction. A baby benefits from being socialized as a baby. You can interact with babies through both noise and physical touch from birth. This interaction helps the baby begin to make connections and develop their brain.

Providers can support early brain development by providing children with safe and nurturing environments. Children learn best through exploring their world and being interacted with. Positive relationships with caring adults can even reverse the effects of toxic stress that a child may have previously experienced. Babies can learn to calm themselves and regulate emotions if supported by their caregivers. Robust human development requires human interaction.

Providers can support early brain development by encouraging social interaction and providing a nurturing relationship and environment that a child feels safe in. Introducing activities that trigger an active mind throughout the day is crucial to development as well.
