The first three years of child development are the fastest, most complex and difficult for parents to understand.
This edition of the acclaimed and award winning series shows early child development as no other medium can.
Six fascinating complete programmes covering:
FIRST WEEKS - WALKING - USING HANDS - TALKING - REASONING - RELATIONSHIPS
- IN THE BEGINNING
Just how much can the new baby see, hear, smell, taste and understand? When and how does it learn to identify its parents?
- FIRST STEPS
Learn to recognise baby's determined attempts to move, to sit up, to crawl and finally to walk.
- TAKING HOLD
A new born can grasp at a finger, a two year old has mastered complex manual dexterity and creativity. Watch this rapid development.
- WORD OF MOUTH
A baby can learn a language - any language - in three years. See the progress from gurgles to story telling.
- THE THINKER
The often unnoticed development of reasoning, thinking and problem solving. Understand what is happening when baby plays.
- YOU AND ME
In three years children establish important relationships with their parents, with adults and with each other. Be alert to the subtleties of shyness, jealousy and making friends.
