Age 2-5 — A Unique Time for Learning

By Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation

In this series of conversations, we speak with the researchers, educators and economists who have contributed their unique and important perspectives to Early Years Study 4. Each conversation is interesting and compelling on its own but, when combined, the call to action is loud and clear: high quality, early childhood education for ALL.

What has recent work in Neuroscience revealed about the brains of very young children, and how best to support them in their healthy development?

Dr. Magdalena Janus is the a Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University. Dr. Brian Kolb is a Professor of Neruoscience at the University of Lethbridge. They join Mrs. Margaret McCain and Stephen Hurley to bring their expertise to Chapter 1 of the Early Years Study 4.
