Support children to achieve their developmental milestones with NDNA’s ‘Child Development: Birth to 5 Years’ online course.

What will I learn?

This online course will provide an introduction to child development for children aged birth to five.

Having a sound understanding of typical child development, key developmental milestones and how children learn is essential when working with young children.

The course will focus on the developmental changes during the early years of a child’s life (birth to 5 years).

It uses milestone charts to illustrate examples of what children may do across a particular age band, remembering that each child is unique and learning does not always take place in a linear way.

The course also includes practical activities for helping babies, toddlers and pre-school children to make good progress.

In addition, it will signpost to sources of help and support for children who may be struggling to meet milestones or who may have developmental delay. 

Key topics include

  • What is child development
  • Understanding developmental milestones and developmental delay 
  • Physical and cognitive development
  • Communication and language development
  • Social and emotional development 
  • The barriers to development and how to support children

Duration: 2-3 hours
