Vroom translates the science behind the brain’s executive functions into easy, actionable tips and messages that encourage back and forth interaction between parents and their young children. By promoting awareness and importance of early brain development, Vroom seeks to turn every parent into an active brain-builder.
The program’s approach is simple: meet parents and caregivers where they are, in places they already go, through trusted individuals and networks in their lives. Vroom reaches busy parents through mobile and digital technologies, and by leveraging household brands and entertainment channels as trusted messengers.
