Did you know that 85 percent of brain growth occurs before kindergarten? That’s why it’s critical to engage interactively with our children while their brains are young and flexible! During your child’s earliest years, their brain makes 1 million neural connections every single second. That’s a lot of brain-building!
That’s why we created 5 Before 5, a collaborative effort to help Utah families Love, Talk, Read, Count, and Play more with their kids before they turn 5 years old. This effort is driven by early learning experts around Utah, with special support from KSL, United Way, Help Me Grow Utah, Envision Utah, and many other amazing partners.
We’re all committed to the happiness and well-being of Utah’s greatest natural resource—our kids!
