Key Message for Parents | The Best Learning Happens in Nurturing Relationships

Babies brains best develop when they have warm and caring relationships with the adults who care for them. Research tells us that over 1 million neural connections are formed every second in a baby’s brain so creating positive learning environments will support optimal brain development. Spending time with your baby talking, playing, singing and reading helps develop a warm and nurturing relationship. Some ideas to share with parents are:

  • Cuddle up and share a book together,

  • Talk to your baby about what is happening around them. Describe colours and shapes,

  • Sing songs face to face.


Early Years Learning Framework | Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

A strong sense of wellbeing provides children with confidence and they are more likely to learn.

We can help young children develop a strong sense of wellbeing by:

  • Providing warm trusting relationships. Welcoming families to your sessions, getting to know their names, asking about their day helps to build a strong and warm relationship,

  • Providing safe, calm and predictable environments. Having a well set out space to run your session in and some basic routines in your session will give parents and babies a sense of ease and comfort,

  • Responding to baby’s needs, read your baby’s cues and respond accordingly.
