Fully funded training – Building Babies Brains 1001 – All Our Business

The aim of this training is to support you to increase your knowledge of baby brain development, bonding and resilience, and be confident in sharing this information with parents/carers/communities.

The training covers;
• Understanding the importance of baby brain development, especially during the vital 0-2 years. We share the most up to date, evidence-based information in an accessible way. This course is about sharing and learning together.
• Building confidence in passing this information on widely. Did you know that only a third of parents know this information? We want it to be ‘all our business’.
• Supporting resilience. How you can help parents by looking after yourself, encouraging parents to look after themselves, so that they can look after their children.
• Tools for being in relationships with others, including Dan Hughes PACE.
• Signposting you to evidence-based resources that you can easily pass onto parents
• Risk and trauma in the early years, and how to build resilience for lifelong skills

The training is for early years practitioners (pre-schools, nurseries, toddler groups, childminders) whose role brings them into contact with children aged 0-2 years. Community members and volunteers who link in with families with children aged 0-2.

How will it be delivered:
