Bendigo Health and Communities for Children Bendigo are excited to launch the new ‘First 1000 Days of Life‘ video resource!
Produced with the generous support of the Bendigo Health Foundation, this video promotes the importance of early brain development and features local specialist services.
The human brain develops more during the first 1000 days of life than any other time. The experiences and relationships a child has in their early years helps to shape the adult they will become.
The video provides simple every day activities to support parents and carers to interact, stimulate and build relationships with children through reading, singing, talking and playing. Children learn best when they listen and interact with important adults in their lives. The video is also available in Karen language.
Reading, singing, talking and playing every day:
- promotes imagination
- teaches children about language and emotions
- helps children to understand their world
- strengthens relationships through shared bonding experiences
