What Will I Learn?

6 MODULES: 21 LESSONS: 95 MINUTES (including Safe Sleeping Guidelines)
In this course, you will learn about a child’s social and emotional development from birth to age 3 – a period where they experience the greatest level of growth and development.
We will explore the importance of relationships and interactions and also how these early experiences not only form the foundations for a child’s ongoing development but also impact their mental health and wellbeing, and can contribute to sleep disturbances.
In our Safe Sleeping module, we will provide clear evidence-based information and guidelines, on how to create a safe sleeping environment for infants and young children.
The program has been developed for health professionals and anyone providing care, education and/or counselling to families and young children including; Child and Family Health Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Family Support Workers and Early Childhood Educators.
