Child Care News for Parents & Carers

Welcome, this week we investigate sound play - what is it and why is it important? Also, how to keep your child's pearly whites white and pearly.
The role of sound play in early childhood services
From the moment they're born, sound is an integral part of children's development. Infants respond to their parents' voices, lullabies, and white noise, and as they grow, different sounds help them to learn and connect.

In fact, the Parenting Research Centre says, 'Sound is critically important to the way children learn about their world' and because there is a tendency to focus on language skills and motor skills, they describe sound as an, 'Unsung hero in child development'.

With this is in mind, let’s look at why it's important to explore different sounds with under-fives and how educators encourage sound play during the child care day.
How to keep
baby teeth healthy
Baby teeth might not be around for the long haul, but they do play a key role in developing speech, saving space for their 'big teeth', helping their jaw and face grow and, of course, chewing.

This means as soon as your bub sprouts their first tooth, it's important to keep it clean and healthy. Even tiny pearly whites are at risk of tooth decay, so let's look at some new research around dental health and brush up on how to care for your young child's teeth.
