At every Cuddles Childcare Centre in the Perth area, which serves Bentley and other suburbs, we focus on relationships. We only hire carers who genuinely care about children and are able to establish nurturing carer-child relationships. We are so adamant about this because we know nurturing relationships help children develop better and faster.
Children’s relationships determine how they see the world around them. This affects all areas of their development and can have lasting effects well into adulthood. The most important early relationships children will make are with you, others in your family circle and carers.
Through early relationships, children learn how to make their way through the world. They learn how to communicate, think, understand, show emotions, behave and develop social skills.
Healthy relationships allow children to express themselves. With parents, it may be a cry, a question or a laugh. They learn by your response, such as a cuddle, an answer or a smile. These responses teach children how to act when they go out in the world.
When you have communication with your child, you are sharing experiences and bonding while teaching your child about the world.
Be a Role Model
Your child not only watches how you respond to him or her, your child also watches how you respond to and treat others. Your child will mimic your behaviour. If you treat those around you with dignity and respect, your child will do the same thing. This will help your child in his or her own relationships and make them more fruitful.
Behaviour at Cuddles Childcare Centres
At every Cuddles Childcare Centre in the Perth area, we ensure that all relationships are positive. Whether it’s carer to carer, child to child or carer to child, we keep it positive. That teaches your child that people are nice, people care and people treat each other with dignity and respect.
We know “Do as I say, not as I do” doesn’t work. Children learn by watching adults. That’s why we make sure they only see great relationships and positive behaviour.
