Child Care News for Parents & Carers
April 21, 2021
Welcome, this week how a new type of in home care is making life easier for families and children with complex needs who can't access mainstream early learning services. Also, how to support your child's mental wellbeing, above and beyond the happy experiences of early childhood.
A new In Home Care option for children with challenging and complex needs
In Home Care (IHC) opens up a world of opportunity for children with disabilities or additional needs and others who are unable to access mainstream child care for logistical or personal reasons.

As its name suggests, the IHC program provides government-subsidised child care in the family home, and although there are limited places and strict eligibility criteria, this type of child care has far-reaching benefits.

For children with challenging and complex needs, the Leor model of IHC provides access to the Early Intervention programs that will help them reach their potential and make positive gains in their lives.

To learn more about the education and care being provided in Australian homes, we spoke with the Founder and Managing Director of Leor, Andrea Christie-David.
Does a positive childhood protect kids from mental illness?
A happy childhood is full of fun, love and discovery, but according to a new study, these great early experiences don't guarantee good mental health later in life.

Research by the University of South Australia and the University of Canberra has found that children raised in stable and supportive environments can still grow up to have a mental health disorder.

Here, we wrap our minds around the research, and see how it may be possible for children to guard against poor mental health, with parents' help.
