What You Do Matters

For Parents and Caregivers AND children ages 0 – 5 yrs.

You know more about your child than anyone! But there may still be times when you have questionsabout what’s going on in his brainabout her developmentor about things you can do together to help him grow and learn.

During this four-week series, you’ll learn how play and everyday interactions help your child’s development. There will be time to share your own experiences, ask questions, and try out activities you can do together at home.

  • Week 1 “Your Child’s Brain and Its Amazing Potential” All children grow at their own pace, but we’ll explore the overall patterns in their head-to-toe development. You’ll see videos and do activities that show how our brains work.

  • Week 2 “Movement and Motion” and “Now Hear This!” Your child’s body is made to move! As he rolls, runs, or eats with his fingers, he’s also taking in information through all of his body’s parts. Find out how all the input and output comes together through your child’s brain. Language has two parts: what your child produces and what your child understands. He starts listening long before he starts talking – find out what happens in between.

  • Week 3 “Feelings” and “What Do You Think?” Babies use emotions and social interactions to help them figure out what’s going on in their world. Over time, they learn to understand and control their own emotional responses – but it’s not always easy, even for their parents! Your child’s thinking abilities – to remember, imagine, and figure things out – are making huge leaps during these early years! There’s so much you can do to help, and play is a big part of it.

  • Week 4 “Making It a Routine” and Graduation CelebrationThink about how what you do at home has changed because of what you learned about your child’s development. How can you keep building on this in the future? What are some ways you can share this information with your child’s other caregivers and teachers? What they do matters too! As a Thank You for participating, we’ll be celebrating with Family Graduation awards including your gift of a Book Bag filled with books!
