Hello, Brain Builders!
I’m Sara Schrichte and my job is to spread the word about Vroom®. Vroom is a set of free tools for parents and caregivers who want to help prepare children for school, friends and life. Follow me to learn about using Vroom and the science behind it. You already have what it takes to make shared moments with your child even more impactful! I’ll share updates and information with you monthly on this blog. I’ll also share with you through The Children’s Cabinet’s social media pages.
You are your child’s first teacher!
Children’s brains grow the fastest from birth through age 5. Babies are born ready to learn and the time you spend with your child can help their brains grow strong. Even a few minutes count!
Parents and caregivers play a special role in these first 5 years as their child’s first and most important teachers. They’re also the people who know the child the best.
Helping your child learn now gets them ready for the future. In your busy life, everyday moments and routines like mealtime, bath time, diaper changes and trips to the grocery store are chances to create Brain Building Moments™ that help your child learn and thrive. Using Vroom will help you see all the ways you are supporting your child’s developing brain everywhere, every day. You already have what it takes!
