The Importance of Early Learning Goes Beyond ABC’s and 123’s Says Oxford Babies Founder

Industry: Child Development

Children begin to learn even before they are born. Studies have shown that after birth a baby will recognize the voices of their parents and even music that has been played before they were born. Children are constantly learning and what they are learning is up to the caregivers in their life. Mrs. Cindy Smith, founder of Oxford Babies says, “There is more to structured child care than ABC’s and 123’s.” Children in a quality child care setting learn much more than colors, shapes and alphabet.

Children begin to learn even before they are born. Studies have shown that after birth a baby will recognize the voices of their parents and even music that has been played before they were born. Children are constantly learning and what they are learning is up to the caregivers in their life.

According to the website Better Brains for Babies, a child’s brain is a work in progress and is shaped not solely on genes, but also the early experiences that shape the brain’s architecture. A baby is born with about 100 billion neurons, the basic brain cells responsible for all major functions in the body. The neurons make connections in the developing brain. Prime times for brain development for Visual and Language development and Emotional attachment begin at birth. Every experience taken in by the five senses helps to strengthen the connections that guide development. The kind of care a child receives plays a big role in how the brain develops. Parents and caregivers who talk to and read to babies are helping them strengthen important language connections and caregivers who respond sensitively to babies’ cries are building emotional connections that lead to healthier relationships.

So, when should parents enroll their child in a structured program for learning?

Mrs. Cindy Smith, founder of Oxford Babies says, “There is more to structured child care than ABC’s and 123’s.” Children in a quality child care setting learn much more than colors, shapes and alphabet. They begin very early to learn the comfort and security of a responsive caregiver. They learn language from the back and forth “conversations” with nurturing people in their lives. Unstructured play gives them the freedom to explore and discover new things without rigid rules. When interacting with other babies, young children learn creativity, problem solving skills and social skills before they are able to crawl.

At Oxford Babies, Mrs. Cindy provides stimulating and home like classroom environments with nurturing, experienced teachers (some of whom have been with Oxford for over 16 years) who form close bonds with the children in their care. She believes it is important to take advantage of every moment as a learning opportunity. She understands that babies begin their education at birth and enrolls them as early as 6 weeks old. The experiences a young child has help build their brain and have the power to set the pace for later learning as well as health and behavior. It is never too early to start teaching a child.
