Nurturing Childhoods

Developing Every Child's Potential

The Nurturing Childhoods Academy

An online community and learning platform designed to help parents, teachers, and caregivers better understand and support the development of children

Nurturing Childhoods gives you the knowledge, understanding and support to develop every child's potential from birth through to the teenage years.

Children are born every day, making new parents the world over. 

However, they come with no personalised guidebook, and rarely do as expected, or as others insist that they should. 

Despite this, the experiences you give them and the decisions you make have a lifetime of impact.

Parenting Courses

Our online courses help you to know and understand your child, while supporting you to parent with confidence and consistency. 

Practitioner Courses

We can offer continual professional development (CPD) for your setting and the Nurturing Childhood Accreditation that Creates, Develops and Embeds Nurturing Childhoods in all your environments.

Baby’s first words

From day one, it is so important that you talk to your child – a lot. While they may not seem to be understanding very much and certainly will not be responding with conversation in the traditional sense, they are learning from every word you have to say.

Nurturing risk management with your toddler

Nurturing risk management with your toddler sounds scary when you want to wrap them in cotton wool. But this is doing them no favours. These first years of your child’s life will see them develop their basic brain architecture and they need a wide range of experiences to do this. Taking risks and pushing themselves is a vital part of this process.

Feelings – the bodies motivators

To understand your child’s outward displays of behaviour, you must take a step back and remind yourself of what is at the root of them – their feelings and emotions. Neither good nor bad, these motivators for the body are driving your child’s behaviours even before they don’t understand them.
