The first 1000 days of childhood development are critical in ensuring a child’s success as an adult.
In Western societies, parents, carers and educators place a large value on the first few years of a child’s life, because that time plays a crucial role in the formation of how that child develops as an adult. You can see the benefits of this in a globalised economy, as competition intensifies for fewer resources and career opportunities.
Your precious infant (0-12 months)
From the moment your baby is born, they are eager to learn and make sense of the world around them. By supporting your baby’s early learning and development, you are setting them up for a happy and successful life.
Babies learn by exploring, experimenting and observing things, but the world can be a scary and overwhelming place for them. What your baby needs more than anything is to feel safe and loved.
Emotional intelligence (EQ) is essential for your baby’s brain development and success later in life.
EQ is your child’s ability to identify, evaluate, control and express emotions. You can support your baby’s EQ by being sensitive to their needs, responding to their signals and providing them with lots of love and affection. When your baby’s emotional needs are being met, they are more receptive to learning.
