Little Assets: Child Care from 6 Weeks to 1 Year
At Little Assets we understand the importance of TLC and F-U-N through learning, during this precious time of development.
What is the best age to start learning and child care?
Physical DevelopmentMost 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 developmentAt 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.
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.
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.
