The most dramatic physical changes between ages 1—5 occur in the brain. Children are born with most of the brain cells that they will ever have (about 85 billion neurons). It is the development of connections between these neurons that represent what we have learned. Neural connections (or synapses) collect information from other neurons and create pathways. During the ages of 0-5, children undergo a period of accelerated neural growth called synaptic blooming where the formation of synapses occur in great exuberance. The more experiences a child has during this time, the more connections and pathways are formed.
Peer Social Skills, and Emotional Control. Children benefit immensely just from being exposed to these subjects, and the amount and quality of experiences that they receive during these sensitive periods sets the foundation for learning that a child builds upon for the rest of their lives.
