Bringing Up Great Kids in the First 1000 Days
Bringing Up Great Kids in the first 1000 days
The first 1,000 days of life – the time spanning roughly between conception and a child’s second birthday – is a unique period of opportunity when the foundations of optimum health, growth, and neurodevelopment across the lifespan are established.
The Bringing Up Great Kids in the first 1000 days program has been designed to nurture parents as they embark on their journey supporting their children and developed with the support of the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
The program enables parents/carers to understand brain development in the early years of life.
- The one-day training includes:
a facilitator’s manual
- session outlines
- interactive reflection activities
- participant sheets
This training will provide the participant with the skills to use this program with parents/carers with children in the first 1000 days of their life and beyond. Training for the Bringing Up Great kids in the early years will commence in 2019.
The Bringing Up Great Kids Program is an identified Evidence-Based Program for Communities for Children Facilitating Partners. It has been evaluated and found to be an effective program in supporting the development of mindful and positive relationships between parents/carers and children.
The Australian government has a particular focus on supporting parents during the first 1000 days of children’s lives. They have funded a range of resources for parents. The resources are available by visiting the Raising Children Network.Visit the Raising Children's Network
