Early Childhood Mental Health

Effects of Negative Experiences

Research tells us the more negative experiences a child has early in life has an effect on their brain, and subsequently, how they process strong emotions. In the early learning setting, these effects can present themselves as behavior issues, which in turn, disrupt the entire classroom. Did you know a child is 10 times more likely to be expelled in preschool than in any other grade, K-12? If children bounce from program to program, or even worse, cannot remain in a program at all, those critical early years of brain development can be lost, and make it hard–even impossible–for them to catch up to their peers.
