The human brain has been called "the three pound universe." There is no known entity in the world that is more marvelous, more mysterious, or more miraculous than the human brain and nervous system. Although many of its "secrets" remain unexplored, much is known about how the human brain works.

We know that parents and early care professionals literally help grow the brains of young children! It is important to know which practices foster healthy brain growth and development.
