Having face to face relationships with babies and young children is essential.

That is one of the messages Dr. Jean Clinton of McMaster University gave to a sold-out crowd at the Moose Jaw South Central Regional Intersectoral Committee early childhood luncheon at Wood Acres on Friday.

"One of my key messages is that love builds brains," said Clinton after her presentation.

"I think that people have got the impression that getting kids ready for school means make sure they're reading, make sure they're writing, but the best way to get kids ready for school is for them to have good social and emotional development."

She added kids learn best by playing and interacting with others.

Check back later this afternoon for the full story.
