How kids learn

From Pacific Standard: "Anyone who spends time around young children will quickly notice that they are constantly learning. Because their brains grow at a rapid pace during these early years, children are especially affected by their surroundings. This means the relationships and quality of interactions children experience with their parents, caregivers, and teachers matter — a lot. Positive experiences promote healthy development and learning and lay a foundation for future success. And children who have access to high-quality early care and education experiences are more likely to begin kindergarten prepared, read on grade level by third grade, graduate high school, and go to college, among other benefits."
