Highlights

Early childhood is a crucial period in life when children start developing their cognitive and non-cognitive skills.

Brain connections begin developing from birth and these connections established early lay the foundations for later stages of brain development.

Early life experiences, such as adverse childhood experiences, can cause toxic stress and damage the brain’s architecture.
