Research shows there is no better time to create a strong foundation for lifelong learning than the first five years of life. It’s during this period that the brain develops most rapidly. Resources are available for parents and caregivers to engage with their young children in ways that enhance brain development. One of the resources shared in this course will be the Vroom app which provides science-based tips and tools to inspire families to turn shared, everyday moments into Brain Building Moments. Vroom helps parents boost their child's learning during the time they already spend together. Vroom meets parents where they are, through the people they already trust and the places they already go. This course will teach providers about these resources, along with the free, Vroom resources so the families they serve can benefit from them. The Vroom app is English and Spanish, and other Vroom resources are available in multiple languages.
