Parenting the early years (0–6 years old)

1 hour instructor-led seminar or webinar

Overview

Infants and toddlers develop rapidly and before long, they are no longer babies—a stage of growth that can be exciting and enjoyable. This seminar will provide insights into the developmental needs of children aged zero to six. Participants will learn about age appropriate behaviours and emotions, routines and relationships, ways to prepare toddlers for school, and tips that can be applied to create a safe environment without excessive limits and restrictions.

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Identify their parenting style.
  • Discuss strategies to foster responsibility and independence.
  • Recognize that milestones and expectations are unique to each situation and child.
  • Communicate effectively with young children.
