Early childhood is a time of remarkable and critical brain development when learning and development is rapid. Your child’s learning during these early years paves the way for the future.
Early childhood is a time of remarkable and critical brain development when learning and development is rapid. Your child’s learning during these early years paves the way as to how your child will learn and develop later in life.
That’s why providing quality early learning and therapy in a child’s life is critical. It supports them to develop the skills needed to participate in everyday life.
The earlier the intervention, the better developmental outcomes, often reducing the amount of supports needed later.
What is a development delay?
This is when a young child is not achieving new skills within the expected age range.
What is a disability?
This is a physical, sensory, intellectual, communication or behavioural impairment which affects development.

How it works
Key Workers do home visits to help build your child’s daily living skills. They give you the information, resources and support that you need to help your child learn, develop and reach their goals.
