Here is a FAST FACT for you: In the first few years of life, 700 to 1,000 new neural connections form every second.

At birth, hundreds of billions of neurons are present, and the fastest rate of brain development happens during the first five years of life. Therefore, the experiences children have in their early years will set the foundation for his or her success in school and in life.
