Science shows that 80% of brain growth happens by the age of three! Beginning from birth, young brains develop like little muscles, getting bigger and stronger the more you and your family interact with your child.

The Basics are five fun, simple, and powerful ways to help all our children aged 0-5 grow to be happy and smart.
