Love Grows Brains : The Wright Family Foundation created the Love Grows Brains campaign to inspire New Zealand families.
The early years of a child’s life are a crucial and unique opportunity in their development. As parents, whanau and caregivers, we have the power to make a difference. We can all set the stage for a child’s lifelong health and intellectual development during this time of enormous potential.

“It’s not about genes, or alphabets, or numbers or colours, it’s about love and interaction. The more love and interaction a baby experiences in the early years, the more developed their brain will be. So it’s love that grows brains.” Nathan Wallis
