About us

Our team at the Child Development foundation has been championing the use of technology to support parents and Practitioners to better understand technological advances and the positive impact they can have on a global scale, 

 

Our software has been developed in partnership with various professionals including but not limited to; Medical Doctors, Speech and Language Therapists, Nurses and Early Education practitioners. 

 

Our software does not and can never replace Child health professionals we believe the software can help lighten the work load and provide accurate early indicators of developmental delays. The software is user friendly and can be integrated into existing platforms mean all data gathered comes into one place. Once integrated we can generate reports at the click of a button based on field data. 

Our steps to success are developed in house and are regularly updated to remain in line with the latest government guidance and legislation.

We appreciate the diverse nature of our planet, so some of our interventions are suitable for everyone while others are a result of close collaboration with inspecting bodies and industry associations, to ensure that they meet the unique and specific needs of their members. Our aim is to design software interventions increase the life chances of a child. Here at the Child Development foundation, we are proud to offer a range of high-quality software interventions if called upon.

We work across the world and partner with local NGOs to ensure all programs have long term sustainability.

 

 

Our Planet matters! We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. Our servers are Eco-friendly, we offer incentives to all our employees to insure they cycle at least once a week and we will not work with organisations who have a track record of abusing the planet. 

Child development

As children develop from infants to teens to adults they go through a series of developmental stages that are important to all aspects of their personhood including physical, intellectual, emotional and social.  The proper role of the parent is to provide encouragement, support and access to activities that enable the child to master key developmental tasks.

A parent is their child’s first teacher and should remain their best teacher throughout life.  Functioning as a coach, the parent exposes a child to age appropriate challenges to encourage development as well as to experiences that allows the child to explore on their own and learn from interacting with their environment.

 

Child Development specialists have learned that from birth children are goal directed to experiment and learn from each experience. Child Development experts have taken the concept of scaffolding from the building trades.  Just as scaffolding is put up to support the structure of the building as it is being built and gradually taken down as the building is able to stand on its own, a parent needs to provide the necessary support for a child to allow them to safely and productively explore and learn from their environment.  

 

As the child matures and develops mastery the scaffolding is removed or changed to allow the child to become more independent.  If the child is not quite ready, the support is reinstated and then gradually withdrawn once again.

 

The information here provides parents with the knowledge and guidelines and tools to provide the support, guidance and learning experiences necessary for their child to grow and develop according to his/her unique developmental blueprint
