Book Title: From Neurons to Neighborhoods: The Science of Early Childhood Development

Author: Jack P. Skonkoff and Deborah A. Phillips, Editors

Book Description:

Neurons to Neighborhoods details the science of early childhood development and supports the theme that early environments and nurturing relationships are critical for the healthy development of children. Recently, my outreach and scholarship efforts in early childhood education expanded to support early care and education professionals serving children in military-rich communities. These military-connected children need supportive relationships and high quality care to give them the best possible start in school and in life as their families may face unique stressors. High quality early care and education can strengthen the resilience of all our children and the intersection of practice, science and policy in early childhood education is critical.
