How to support the child in the first year of life

17 January 2020 - 18 January 2020


Do you expect the birth of your child? Do you have a young child? Do you work with young children in a hospital or a nursery? If the answer of any of these questions is ‘yes’, take the opportunity to be part of an upcoming seminar on child development in the first year of life.

On January 17 and 18, 2020 you will learn how to support the natural development of your child in the first most important and formative years. The child in his first years can do a lot. Supporting development and meeting his/her needs unlock this potential. These are part  of the topics of the seminar for parents and teachers this Friday and Saturday. We invite parents, teachers, psychologists, nurses, medical professionals and anyone whose profession is to raise young children.

The seminar is designed for:

  • Parents. This seminar is a great opportunity to deepen your understanding about a child under the age of 3.
  • Educators in nursery and primary schools, principals. You will form a clear and real perspective on the needs of children aged 0-3 years.
  • Health professionals. You will be able to understand the children’s developmental needs at a deeper level.
