According to studies by the National Research Council and Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, young children who lack at least one loving and consistent caregiver in the earliest years may suffer severe and long-lasting development problems. Studies of scientific brain research show environmental stress, even among infants and toddlers, can interfere with the proper development of neural connections inside the brain essential to a child’s proper social and emotional development.
INMED’s Moms & Babies class, as well as our Healthy Families program, promote and support early childhood development with a focus on parental bonding, the joy of play, nutrition, literacy and emotional and social growth. At INMED, we see all our children as super heroes! For more information on INMED’s parenting and family education classes at the Opportunity Center, visit http://opportunitycenter.us/programs/
