“Parents Who Play, Build Brains!” is a video brought to you in partnership between Riverside Medical and the Drumheller and Area Early Childhood Development Coalition. At Riverside Medical, we provide awareness for children, parents, and caregivers of the resources offered towards early childhood development within the community of Drumheller. Our healthcare team can help to support children and families in navigating these resources.
In the first five years of life, your child’s brain develops faster than at any other time in their life. Your child’s early experiences – the things they sees, hear, touch, smell, and taste stimulate their brain, creating millions of connections. This is when the foundations for learning, health and behaviour throughout life are laid down. In the early years, your child’s main way of learning and developing is through play and having a strong positive relationship with parents.
