Welcome to the Central Rivers AEA Early Childhood website! Our goal is to partner with educators, communities, and families who impact the lives of young children.
“There are approximately 2,000 days from when a child is born until she or he enters kindergarten. Nearly 90% of brain growth occurs during these 2,000 days, making this time period one of the most critical for learning (Brown & Jernigan, 2012). When adults, know what young children need to learn during these 2,000 days, they can create appropriate situations, build healthy attachments, and provide experiences to support and nurture the best development by each child.”–Iowa Early Learning Standards, 3rd Ed., p. 8
