Brain Boosters

Stepping Stone School Executive Function Program

A newborn’s brain is about a quarter of the size of the average adult brain. Incredibly, it doubles in size in the first year and keeps growing to about 80 percent of adult size by age three and 90 percent — nearly full grown — by age five.

Brain development builds on itself, as connections eventually link with each other in more complex ways. This enables your child to move, speak and think in more complex ways. The early years are the best opportunity for your child’s brain to develop the connections they need to be healthy, capable and successful adults.

The long-term, positive impact of our high-quality early education on your child’s success in school and life is supported by decades of research and developmental science.

There are four brain lobes that are key components supporting neural pathways for language, social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Stepping Stone School’s curriculum is designed to provide stimulating learning experiences supporting brain development and maximizing your children’s mental capacity.
