Understanding Child Development


As children develop from infants to teens to adults, they go through a series of developmental stages that are important to all aspects of their personhood including physical, intellectual, emotional and social. The role of the parent is to provide encouragement, support, and access to activities that enable the child to master key developmental tasks.

This workshop will guide you through ages and stages and increase your knowledge of the key areas for learning and development in line with the early years foundation stage curriculum for children aged 0-3 years. We will explore suggestions for age-appropriate activities to encourage development as well as parenting strategies to provide appropriate structure and encouragement for your child.
