Working with babies

Early evidence and current research is highlighting the importance of supporting children aged 0 – 2 in their development as we emerge from the pandemic and lockdowns.

The support we offer the children and families now, will make a long-term difference.

These information sheets are available for practitioners working with babies and two-year-olds, and to share with parents. They are intended to prompt conversations with families and, when working with them, to support the key areas of development that are so important at this stage of a child’s development.

Sheet 1: Communication-sounds, music and songs

Sheet 2: Sensory play

Sheet 3: Playing together

Sheet 4: Stories, props and language development

Sheet 5: Being active and physical experiences
