Setting the Record Straight on Perry Preschool
This article examines how the The High Scope/Perry Preschool project has been inaccurately interpreted.

Early Years Last Forever Presentation
The first few years of life are crucial for every child to reach their potential. Brainwave has Educators trained to deliver seminars and workshops on early brain development.
Unravelling the Adolescent Brain Presentation
Each generation is known to have concern about the generation following and we are the first generation to understand the changes that occur in the adolescent brain.
Whakamana te tamaiti.
Brainwave’s vision is that all children in Aotearoa New Zealand are valued and nurtured so they can reach their full potential.
Our aim is to raise public awareness about new findings in brain research and to educate everyone who has an impact on the early life of tamariki/children about the important implications of this knowledge on our children’s physical, social, intellectual and emotional development.
We would like to acknowledge the passing of our Patron, Judge Mick Brown. We have been honoured to have him as our Patron; he was always committed to improving the outcomes of young people. He knew that a good start begins at conception (and in fact before) and continues to build through the first few years of life, his support for Brainwave Trust has always been appreciated. He will be sadly missed.
