The Nest series: Do milestones matter?

Many parents wonder if reaching age-appropriate milestones is important for their child to attend preschool… and the answer is ‘no!’ This webinar discusses how early childhood educators support children’s development, and connecting to support services if there are concerns about developmental delay.

We will explore:

  • How early childhood education settings help children learn in a safe and supportive environment
  • Developmental milestones as just one of many criteria in tracking children’s development
  • Early childhood professionals’ training in identifying disability or developmental delay
  • The early childhood education setting experience for children with disability or developmental delay
  • Connecting with an Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) provider if there are concerns

Hear from our panel of professional staff and ask questions. The webinar is facilitated by Plumtree’s trained parent peer workers with lived experience in raising a child with disability.

Age focus

For parents, family members and carers of children aged 2–6 years old.

Please note that this series is primarily targeted at parents; however, Early Childhood Professionals are also welcome to attend.
