Step by Step

The early years of a child’s life provide the foundation for their future heath, development and wellbeing. Research shows that the most influential role in this critical period is the role played by parents. Humans have evolved to benefit from the learning and input of our caretakers. Touch, talk and the nurturing relationship itself are all drivers of early learning from birth.

As a parent, it is good to know that our love and attention support our children as they learn and grow. ‘Step by step’ provides information to support parents understanding of each stage of a child’s development together with some helpful hints on what parents can do to help their child grow and develop to their full potential.

The Frankston-Mornington Peninsula Children’s Health Alliance supported the development of this booklet ‘Step by step’. The Children’s Health Alliance is part of the Peninsula Model for Primary Health Planning. The Children’s Health Alliance is a catchment based partnership between GPs, Paediatricians, health and community service organisations and consumer representatives working together to improve service coordination and support better outcomes for all our children.
