Brainwave Trust Aotearoa
Brainwave Trust is a registered charity and was formed as a response to new scientific evidence on the impact that experiences in the early years have on the brain development of a child.
Whakamana te i tamaiti.
Brainwave’s vision is that all children in Aotearoa New Zealand are valued and nurtured so they can reach their full potential.
We share knowledge about the critical importance of the first thousand days of life. We use evidence based research and make it understandable and accessible to everyone who influences the lives of babies and children.
We are registered with the Charities Commission.
Through education and motivation we aim to:
- Help parents and whanau understand what children need for the best start in life. Providing practical advice about what really matters in the early years, these sessions support parents and whanau to make positive choices for their tamariki.
- Help professionals who want to build knowledge and understanding of early brain development and the lifelong impact this can have on children.
- Create intergenerational change in attitudes to parenting by reaching the next generation of parents.
