About the course
Just after the birth of a child, its combination of genetics and other environmental influences has a significant role in shaping who that child becomes. Each child is born with a unique set of abilities to do great things, but identifying and developing that potential is the real hard-work and depends on the proper environment that allows them to grow up.Healthy development in children is crucial, which means that children of varied abilities, including those with special health care needs, are capable to grow up when their social, emotional and educational needs are met. Having a safe and loving home along with spending time with family, playing, singing, reading, and talking are very important. As an early child practitioner, it is your job to make sure that children are healthy and safe. To succeed in their teenage and adult life, they need to be equipped with skills and resources and inculcate basic cultural values in them.
