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.
Making the unbreakable connection (1-2yrs)
Between the ages of 1 and 2, your child will become more independent, confident and coordinated and their unique personality will start to shine through. This is an extremely exciting time in your child’s mental, physical and emotional development. As your child’s brain rapidly develops, they will start to walk, talk and remember things. Before you know it, your little one will progress from walking to climbing, running and jumping. Your toddler will also become more aware of what’s happening around them and more assertive as they learn how to express their wants and needs.

By 18 months, the average toddler understands 10 times more words than they can verbalise. By their second birthday, they will probably be able to say over 50 words.
