PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH
Social, emotional, behavioral and physical health: together, they form the foundation for your child’s development. Certainly, the importance of physical health is easy to understand. But a child’s mental health should also take priority. A report by Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child states, “the foundation for sound mental health is built early in life, as early experiences – which include children’s relationships with parents, caregivers, relatives, teachers, and peers – shape the architecture of the developing brain.”
