Born Smart is the World’s first video based parenting website for Parents with children from birth to 36 months. Born smart is a collection of age appropriate 5 minute videos that have games based on brain research and educational theories that parents can play with their kids and help nurture their brain development and skills like social, emotional, language, cognitive and physical.
We believe nurturing a child’s brain with age suitable and milestone oriented interactions create an emotional balance in the child thereby enhancing brain development. We understand the needs of brain development and help parents create environments at home that will prove to be enriching experiences for the child to be nurtured in.
Early childhood and parenting experts from U.K, U.S.A, Wales, New Zealand and India have come together to create Born Smart parenting experience based on games and interactions.
Why I recommend Born Smart to parents
Dr. Karen, believes in today’s fast-moving world parents often feel bombarded with information on how to teach children and sometimes report feeling insecure about how they should best promote their child’s learning and development. This concern can result in parents feeling disempowered while in others may result in parents having unrealistic expectations of their children.In response to these concerns Born Smart website and associated videos, have been designed to provide information about how to support and promote the development of a child’s learning through play. Each of these games have been consciously designed to be simple and simply resourced so that you and your child can focus on the intended learning in each game. You can be assured that while your child is learning the obvious skills of the game such as counting,recognising colours, letters and numbers s/he is also developing less obvious skills such as the ability to: focus on developing a skill, stay on task and to apply new learning a new situations.
Dr. Rushton, says Born Smart has a mélange of interactions based indoors, outdoors, water based, reading based, free play that are therapeutic and a developmental process that enhance a child’s physical, cognitive and social-emotional growth. Toddler’s brain forms neural networks, much like a transportation system, throughout the brain. Much of this is already ‘hardwired’ or formed prior to birth and is genetically generated. The foundation may be set, however, the development progress depends on how much a child or baby is stimulated. Through these interactions children becomes more aware of their abilities to play and explore toys without assistance. Nevertheless it aims at children building an emotional bonding of trust with the parent. Through this interaction, toddler listens to what you say attentively. The aim of Born Smart is to provide emotional stability which is a seed for all brain development in a child. The interactions focus on physical developments such as the development of the cortico motoneuronal cells in the brain’s cortex allows for fine motor control develops over the first two years of life.
Toni Christie, says the vast developmental growth of the brain, language and understanding in these first three years are unparalleled in any other stage of the life cycle. Babies are born with their own potentials and capabilities which mean the neurons are prepared and all set to build links that set the stage for their skills.

The vast developmental growth of the brain, language and understanding in these first three years are unparalleled in any other stage of the life cycle. Go ahead and play the Born Smart interactions and become a sensitive parent.
Swati Popat Vats, says Bornsmart interactions aim to nurture a child’s “smart genes” which are of dire importance as 90% of a child’s brain is developed by the age of two years. Brain wiring is at its peak after birth and so optimum stimulation in the form of activities and games crafted specially for young babies and children need to be offered to for essential brain development. It is a platform for sensitive parenting helping parents understand the needs of brain development and helps them create environments at home that will prove to be enriching experiences for their child to be nurtured in as the lack of correct stimulation can stunt a child’s sensory, motor, emotional, and linguistic development. Bornsmart focuses on brain development and the interactions aid as a stimulus to a child in sync with the age and developmental milestones.
Some of the interactions I really enjoyed in the session with my baby. Apart from these all I would like to appreciate the presentation of the videos and the sessions. Thank you for the knowledge to me about my baby. Thank you Born Smart.
