About the course:

Parents play a vital role in a child's upbringing and are naturally best positioned to be the primary mentor in their formative years (3-6). Whether they are prepared for it or not, they have a large responsibility in shaping the child’s personality and cultivating their development.  

This is because children behave, react, and imitate their parents, and can develop skillsets and behaviours (positive or negative) based on the environment their parents foster for them.   
We often think that the time for learning is when the kids are at pre-school, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Children need to be inspired and engaged with by their parents just as much as, if not more than, their teachers.  
Creating an environment at home that encourages and motivates kids to learn and explore doesn't happen on its own, and requires active parenting and communication.  
But it doesn't have to be all hard work. There are numerous tactful activities that you can engage your child to promote healthy development at home. This course will equip you with the fundamentals you need to engage your little ones while they learn through play.

Course Syllabus

Module  1

Understanding What Children Need To Know In Order To Learn Optimally

At ages 3 -6, cognitive, physical, social, emotions, and language development are vital. In this module, you will gain insight into how these developments take place and how you can help to enhance the process.  

  • Define cognitive development and its complexity and importance of learning 
  • Learn about physical development processes of children aged 3 – 6 
  • Explore how developing pro-social behaviours and positive interaction can be beneficial   
Module  2

Cognitive development

Cognition is the ability to think and thus learn new information and integrate it with current knowledge. In this module, we will explore children's cognitive and metacognitive development and share strategies and activities that promote cognitive development. 

  • Prolonging your child's attention span 
  • Visual comprehension – matching, comparing and sorting 
  • General comprehension skills – cause and effect, fact and fiction 
Module  3

Physical development is undeniably important as it is crucial for the child overall long-term development. In this module, tips and demonstration of activities that promote physical development will be discussed.   

  • Gross motor milestones 
  • Understanding the synergy between motor control, balance, and coordination 
  • Health, wellness, exercise, rest and self-care skills for children 
Module  4

Social and Emotional Development

Social and emotional development is essential for all humans as it is innate to crave social and emotional connections with people around us. In this module, we will explore how to build relationships bridges to promote social-emotional development between your child and significant others. We will discuss: 

  • Building the house of social-emotional development  
  • Forging friendships with peers, siblings, family members and friends 
  • New ways to understand challenging behaviours 
Module  5

Speech & Language Development

Language development is a key domain to understand as this allows your child to communicate their thoughts, ideas, and feelings. During the ages of 3-6, language literally explodes and children begin to form their opinions, create their communication style, and begin to interact with a wider range of people. During this module, we will delve into the details of: 

  • Speech and language milestones 
  • Developing your child's oral, listening, and comprehension skills 
  • Articulation and phonological development  
Module  6

Fine Motor Skills Development

During the ages of 3-6 years, children develop a wide range of fine motor actions that help with both activities of daily living, pre-writing, and writing skills.  

  • Fine motor skills milestones 
  • Activities to develop your child's fine motor skills 
  • Developing your child's handwriting  
Module  7

Literacy & Numeracy Development

Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to read, write, and understand numerical concepts. Reading, writing, and facility with numbers are key in enabling the kind of early learning experiences that research shows are linked with academic achievement and an enhanced love of learning. In this module, we take a look at: 

  • Literacy and numeracy expectations from ages 3-6 years  
  • Activities to promote literacy and numeracy at home  
Module  8

The Development of Play

Learning about play development in young children is vital to understanding how to engage them and enter their world. The ability to play is critical not only to being content but also to sustaining social relationships and being a creative person. Play helps children to discover what they enjoy at their own pace. During this module, we will discuss: 

  • Different kinds of play 
  • How play impacts social skills 
  • How to develop your child and your own play skills
