The importance of child development, in all its dimensions cannot be stressed enough, and as an Educare Centre in Cape Town, Kay-Dee takes early childhood development very seriously.
We believe that fostering healthy development in a child from birth is the single most valuable thing a parent can do for their little one.
Many parents may feel inclined to keep their children sheltered from the everyday struggles that life presents to us all. However, the bad news is that is can hinder several important areas of child development such as healthy coping skills and resilience.
Recently, there was a situation where parents in the United States allegedly paid large sums of money to ensure their children were accepted into one of the most prestigious educational institutions in America.
Healthy early childhood development depends on several factors, one of which being a well-established bed time routine.
A consistent bedtime routine encourages regulated and normal sleeping patterns. However, many parents will agree that establishing these routines is much easier said than done, in most cases.
When talking about child development, the most discussed aspects are usually the emotional as well as physical development of your growing child.
However, equally important is the stimulation of children’s imagination and creativity throughout their stages of development. In fact, imagination directly influences a child's emotional and physical development.
