A gift from science to babies and families
In recent decades, there have been important advances in the science of early childhood development. This has led to a deeper appreciation of the conditions and factors that influence the course of development of human beings in their early childhood. The experience of early years shapes the developing brain. PCPS®, as an evident-based service, converts principles from these advances in early child development and parenting, in to a centre-based service for local communities.
Dr. Selma Fraiberg said: “the new knowledge about early development and relationships is a treasure that should be returned to babies and their families as a gift from science.”
Here are some interesting links to expand on the scientific advances related to parenting, attachment and the importance of the first one thousand days of life, like the Center on the Developing Child in Harvard University, the Parent-Infant Foundation, the Early Years-Royal Foundation or Unicef – the first 1,000 days of life.
