Abstract

Advances in neuroscience in the last decades have affected our thinking on teaching young children considerably. In this Chapter, we review these as well as present a bird's eye view of the brain, glimpse at how neural growth leads to perceptual-motor integration, cover some brain functions unique to early childhood, and review the effects of stress on the young brain. We then look at implications of such knowledge for early childhood teachers and carers.
