When children are not attending child care, what do they do? Their carers (parents, grand-parents, friends, relatives) do not have the experience or resources to locate and assemble a structured activity program based on their child’s individual developmental needs. What’s more, carers tell us they dread the daily challenge of “thinking-up” things for their young children to do during their time at home. They worry whether they are doing the “right” thing regarding their child’s developmental needs, and many of them don’t recognise the “fun” and educational benefits that can be found in simple household materials. So what is the answer?
Beginning today an alternative exists for carers; a web site where anyone caring for young children (birth - 6 years of age) can access age appropriate, fun activities. Activities designed by trained Early Childhood experts that will not only reduce carer anxiety, but more importantly will assist in promoting children's ongoing development. This site delivers a daily program, a month at a time for the carer, including suggestions for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. The carer will know what developmental areas are being catered for with each activity and a list is supplied of all materials needed. The emphasis is on readily available resources in the home. Where possible the design criterion is always to minimise carer cost. This is a resource library that will keep Your Little Treasure educated and happy throughout their day.
