Positive early experiences encourage brain development and have benefits throughout a child’s life. How do you make sure the experiences you provide will be the right ones?

Research shows that parents who fully understand the timeline and processes of development are able to provide the best learning experiences for their child’s individual needs, interests, strengths and potential.

Critical Years™ gives you suggestions for 

  • using everyday materials from around the home
  • simple story ideas that promote thinking and understanding
  • meaningful questions that help you create a process of 'shared' thinking so important in structuring appropriate learning experiences
all designed to optimise your child’s brain development.
