Stacking and discovering.

This week, communities across Connecticut are celebrating young children and the parents, family members, caregivers, and teachers who support them. If you have a young child in your life, we hope you agree with this statement from Alison Gopnik, Andrew N. Meltzoff, and Patricia K. Kuhl:

“[W]hat we see in the crib is the greatest mind that has ever existed, the most powerful learning machine in the universe.”

This week, we hope you take a moment to marvel at the intellect, curiosity, and potential of the young children around you and reflect on how you can best support their learning and growth!
