Giving your child a strong start in the early years
Research tells us that quality education and care early in life leads to better health, education and job outcomes in adulthood. Children are learning and growing from the time they are born. The greatest influence on a child’s future health, development and happiness is in the first 5 years of life.
We’re working with families to take a ‘learning together’ approach about child development in the early years.
Several early childhood parenting resources are available to help your child learn and grow right from the start.
Little Big Book Club supports parents to read, sing and play with their children from birth, with access to book recommendations, reading packs and resources.
Mum's Grapevine offers advice for fathers to encourage reading together with their child.
Parenting SA has free parenting factsheets, videos and upcoming seminars on many parenting topics.
