Did you know that during your child's earliest years, their brain makes 1 million neural connections every single second?! That`s a lot of brain-building!

Travis Allred With Envision Utah shared with us how brain-building gets them ready for school, ready for friends, ready for life especially because their brain grows the fastest before kindergarten.

Parents can start at birth to build their children's brains and there are resources to help.

Vroom is a free resource that helps turn any moment into a brain-building moment. Life gets busy, brain-building is simple - turn any moment into a brain-building moment: bathtime, mealtime, bedtime, while doing the laundry or dishes, when you're out and about, anytime is a great time!

Brain-building happens when caring adults engage in meaningful, back-and-forth interactions with babies and young children.

Vroom is dedicated to helping parents boost their child's learning during the time they already spend together.

Brain-building prepares your babies, toddlers, and kids with executive functioning skills, social-emotional skills, reading and math skills, focus, and problem solving skills.
