Do you know that a baby is born with all the brain cells he needs when he becomes an adult?

Do you know that a baby creates 700 neural connections every second in the first 1,000 days of his life?

A study conducted by Dr. Jim Heckman, a Nobel Laureate in Economics, show that early stimulation of brain function during childhood plays a critical role in a child's social and economic success. Furthermore, the neural pathways and networks that are forged during the first 1,000 days will have lasting impacts on the person's social, emotional and mental capabilities --- very important factors which dictate the kind of lifestyle, job and social interactions he will have in the future.

For parents who want nothing but the best for their children, Dr. Heckman's research show that preschool experiences and early interactions with peers and adults provide the highest return in capital investment. The benefits of which decreases dramatically after school due to aging and several other reasons.

From an economic standpoint, these words ring true. Early childhood stimulation of brain function develops fluid abilities such as memory, reasoning, speed of thought and problem solving prowess. All of which are interrelated and foreshadows high-level brain function which is key to a happy, successful life.
