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.
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.
In the past, particular emphasis was placed on the development of one’s IQ rather than EQ, also known as emotional intelligence.
However, over the years and after many important developments in psychology, it has been discovered that nurturing your child’s emotional intelligence has far greater benefits in the long run.
Definition: Early childhood development (ECD) is described by the Children’s Act as the processes of emotional, cognitive, sensory, spiritual, moral, physical, social and communication development of children from birth to school-going age.
