The Science of Early Child Development (SECD) is a dynamic, online multimedia resource presenting some of the most recent and relevant research into early human development and population health. New findings about early brain development and the unfolding of genetic potential emphasize the vital importance of nurturing responsive care and everyday experience for young children. SECD is a knowledge mobilization initiative based on a developmental health perspective designed to make current research accessible to anyone interested in learning more about the profound impact of the early years on lifelong health and wellbeing.
