Welcome to the rapidly evolving development of your child's brain! 

By 3 years of age, a child's brain has formed 3 'quadrillion' connections - that's so many 0's at the end, we won't even try it. Between the ages of 2 and 3, the average child's vocabulary will double to around 900 words. A 4-year-old's brain is twice as active as an adult's. Your child's brain capacity is developed before the age of 5. 

But without proper cultivation, a child's development can fall behind. This infographic on the milestones of your little rocket scientist is put together by early childhood educators - not only as a guide for parents, but to emphasise the importance of appropriately qualified early childhood educators in your child's life.
