Center on the Developing Child
Brain development begins before birth and continues throughout adulthood. In early childhood, children’s brains are rapidly developing and laying the foundation for success throughout the child’s lifespan. The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University presents concise and actionable research about how children’s brains develop, the effects of toxic stress, and factors that promote children’s well-being.
