All children deserve the best start in life and new scientific discoveries deepen our understanding of how to create the best environments for children. The Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington (I-LABS) is an interdisciplinary center dedicated to discovering the fundamental principles of human learning, with a special emphasis on early learning and brain development.
This hour long class covers the following points:
- Babies have a biological need for loving care. They begin forming an emotional bond with their caregivers at birth. Infants form an attachment to primary caregivers by the end of their first year.
- The quality of attachment relationships is different for each child. Child and family factors can affect attachment quality.
- Attachment relationships during infancy can have lasting effects on children’s development. Yet, attachment quality can improve with proper support.
