Did you know your infant has 14 billion more firing neurons in their brain than you do! Did you also know the brain “prunes” or reduces the number of synaptic connections or pathways during the preschool years? Pathways that are underused are “pruned”. A young child’s experiences enhance or diminish their synaptic connections. The best age to learn math or a new language is ages 3 – 7. We would love to help you nurture those math pathways with fun and interactive math activities that build a foundation and spark a love of math in them!
