Invest in Kids
Foundation is dedicated to promoting the healthy
development of children aged zero to five.
An explosion of scientific
knowledge has shown us that these are the miracle years the time of greatest human
development. That's because most of brain development actually occurs after birth
much of it before age five. So when kids are stimulated and nurtured, played with and
cooed at, held and soothed, they have a far better chance of developing into productive,
compassionate and confident adults.
a result, Invest in Kids has set the following goals:
- To enhance the understanding of
healthy child development between the ages of 0-5.
- To create a climate of support for
healthy child development for all Canadian children.
- To motivate adoption of best
practices and policies to ensure the most effective development of our children.
Foundation is working towards these goals through research,
public education and awareness, and training.
