The New Year is the perfect time to try new things and build on our strengths. Are you interested in learning more ways to turn simple chores or errands into fun activities with your little ones? Looking to find more ideas for how you can stretch out conversations with your children over a variety of topics? Or are you interested in learning more about your child’s brain development and how to promote it? Both Vroom and Mind in The Making are here to help you with all of that, and so much more! Reach out for more information on how you can become a part of the Brain Builder movement with your family and community!

Vroom Tip of the Month

Making a brain building moment can be as simple as using the sights, sounds, smells around us to start a conversation. Check out this Vroom tip for an idea on making a brain building moment with our child based on the sounds around us.

Learn the Science!

You can learn more about the science behind Vroom by taking a Mind in the Making class. These interactive sessions help us understand the science behind children’s early development. They also offer us simple, everyday ways we can promote strong life skills for the children in our lives.
The Children’s Cabinet offers Mind in the Making classes in-person and online for parents and providers. Please join us at one of our classes this month!
