Infants and toddlers develop rapidly and before long, they are no longer babies—a stage of growth that can be exciting and enjoyable. This session will provide insights into the developmental needs of children aged 0 to 6. Participants will learn about age appropriate behaviours and emotions, routines and relationships, ways to prepare toddlers for school, and tips that can be applied to create a safe environment without excessive limits and restrictions.
You are welcome to bring a guest to this seminar to attend with you. Please ensure you check the “I will bring a guest” option in your registration and whether you will participate in Halifax or Truro.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to do the following:
• Identify their parenting style.
• Discuss strategies to foster responsibility and independence.
• Recognize that milestones and expectations are unique to each situation and child.
• Communicate effectively with young children.
