Child Care and Early Learning for Ages 6 Weeks to 1 Year

When it comes to infants and toddlers, we understand the importance of TLC and F-U-N through learning, during this precious time of development. That’s why our Orange Room follows the Australian Early Years Learning Framework, meaning we’ll help your little one develop fundamental physical, social, intellectual, and emotional skills through enjoyable, play-based activities. These will include games, songs, arts and crafts, and more – lovingly guided in our beautiful indoor/outdoor space. Paired with a nutritious menu for healthy growth, our program will help progress your child to the next age group in our Blue Room (1 to 2 years or confident walkers).

What is the best age to start learning and child care?

There is no single answer to this question as different families have different needs and preferences. Some parents may choose to start child care when their child is very young, while others may wait until they are a bit older. Ultimately, the best age to start child care in Australia will vary from family to family. Starting child care at an early age can have a number of benefits for both children and parents. Early learning can help children develop important social and emotional skills. It gives your child the opportunity to explore their interests and learn new things. Parents may find that starting child care at an early age helps them feel more prepared for parenthood and provides them with some much-needed respite. Important Developmental Milestones for 1-Year-Olds 1-year-olds are active and curious, and they learn best through exploration. Here are some important developmental milestones for 1-year-olds:

Physical Development

Most 1-year-olds can walk independently and may even be able to run. They also begin to develop their fine motor skills, and many will be able to pick up small objects and feed themselves.

Cognitive development

At this age, 1-year-olds begin to understand the world around them. They may start to recognize familiar faces, imitate new behaviors, and follow simple instructions. They are also beginning to develop basic problem-solving skills and a sense of object permanence.

Language development

1-year-olds are beginning to understand and use words. They may be able to say a few words, such as “mama” or “dada,” and they may also begin to babble.

Emotional development

1-year-olds are beginning to understand the concept of cause and effect, which can lead to an increase in tantrums and other challenging behaviors. It is important for parents to be patient and understanding during this time, while also establishing clear rules and routines.

Overall, there is no “best” age to start child care in Australia. Whether you choose to start child care when your child is 6 weeks old or 3 years old, the most important thing is that you find a quality program that meets your family’s needs.
