This half day is course is practical combining insights into brain development with hands on activities to create a “tummy time” extravaganza for your setting.

Course Summary:  This practical course has been developed in partnership with a nursery manager who specialises in working with babies and is an essential course for anyone working with this age group. The course details the changes the brain goes through in the first two years of a child’s life and the importance of physical exploration for babies and young children. It will also explore how modern life has made the experience of babies a more sedentary one and how we can combat this. The course will also help you to get parents involved by supporting you to develop fun, exciting activities that are relevant to very young children but are still engaging for adults to take part in.

Areas of Learning: While ‘Working with Babies’ predominantly meets areas of learning: Personal, Social and motional, Physical Development and Communication and Language the ideas for interaction promote a whole range of developmental outcomes.

This course will support practitioners to gain knowledge on:

  • The neuroscience of early childhood and changes to the brain
  • Communication and Language acquisition
  • Physical and emotional development in babies
  • The effects of modern parenting
  • Neuro-motor immaturity and Bucket Baby Syndrome
