Parenting Young Children

Taking care of a child in their first years of life is one of the most rewarding and challenging times in the life of a parent. As a parent, it is easy to feel overwhelmed or to get the impression that things are getting out of control when you have a young child. 

However, with the right knowledge and the right tools, parenting young children can become the most pleasant experience. 

You can create life lasting memories with your child simply by understanding your child's physical and psychological development and interacting with them accordingly. Of course, play is an important element in parenting young children and in teaching them various life lessons. But while taking care of your child, make sure you also take care of yourself. 

At Playgroup NSW, we understand that parenting young children is an entirely new experience to many parents and carers. In this section you will find a collection of useful information, tips and tricks to help you bond with your child.

    Toys are important for your child’s development. They are fun and interesting, and can help your child to develop a wide variety of skills.

    There are a lot of toys that can be dangerous to a child, especially if they are not age-appropriate or if they are made from potentially harmful materials. As a parent, you can evaluate your child’s toys by going over some simple steps to make sure they don’t present safety issues.

    Is your child telling you they are bored or is your toddler showing signs of boredom? One of the best ways to entertain a bored child is to take them outside. The outdoors offer endless possibilities for having fun. It’s also a healthy alternative to playing in the house.

    Here are some of the things you can do with your toddler, without having to leave your neighbourhood.

    Day care or other forms of childcare or early education can be a lifesaver, especially for parents who cannot take a lot of time off from work and whose families are out of reach. When searching for the best solution for your child, start by understanding what your options are.

    There are multiple types of early education and childcare - how do you choose the best one for your child(ren)? Although similar in the types of activities they undertake, you should pay close attention when choosing an early learning centre for your child, as each of them comes with its own particularities.
