Research shows the most significant brain development milestones occur from birth to age 5. Babies are born with more than 100 billion nerve cells in their brains. These neurons must connect and communicate with each other in order to form the circuits needed to think, learn and succeed – something neurons do at the remarkable rate of 700 connections per second in the first five years of life. According to The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, “The strength and efficiency of these connections is greatly affected by social interactions that involve an active back-and-forth – or ‘serve and return’ – exchange of information.” Parents and educators play a critical role in creating these new and repeated experiences that lay the foundation for a wide range of developmental outcomes later in life. “Serve and return” can be implemented with children of all ages to promote a variety of positive learning outcomes, such as literacy and language skills, social and emotional confidence, and executive functioning skills, such as team-building and leadership skills.
At Primrose Schools, the team of leading early childhood educators has created an integrated curriculum that carefully balances social, emotional, physical and academic learning based on age and development levels. For example, during story time, teachers engage students in different back-and-forth interactions by age, including:
• Ages 6 weeks to 1-year-old: cooing and
making facial expressions
• Ages 1-3: asking questions and using
different character voices
• Ages 4-5: discussing feelings
By frequently and deliberately pairing words with objects and actions to create meaning, Primrose students begin to learn language to its fullest extent. Additionally, by implementing “serve and return” and discussing problems and feelings during playtime, children begin to develop important life skills, such as playing well with others, thinking outside the box and learning to cope with failures. The rapid development that takes place
during the first five years of a child’s life is critical to success in life, and early educators play a pivotal role in fostering this growth.
