Fantastic app

I have a childcare background and I am now a mum to an 8 month old little girl.
All I can say is I wish I could’ve used this to track my key children’s development at work 🥲 would’ve made it so much easier for the parents to see and understand!
It’s amazing and the activities suggestions are great as they suggest using things that everyone has at home! I love that I can support my little girl achieve her NATURAL and developmentally appropriate as well as personalised next steps and I love that the milestones aren’t limited to the main 3 areas of learning (sensory?? Hello!! How amazing!!).
I have no suggestions yet as I’ve only been using the app two days. Hopefully I’ll be able to afford to keep it as I think it’s incredible!

Tailored to your individual child’s needs

All children are different. Obviously. Except the milestones that we set against our children are all very static and one size definitely does not fit all.

What I love about this app is it’s helping me nurture their individual strengths and weaknesses in a way that wouldn’t be suggested to me before.

For example my just turned 1 year old has an activity which involves helping him walk (yes walk) up the stairs. I wouldn’t of dreamed of doing this with my eldest at the same age. Because he wouldn’t have been able to, but this app gives you great activities tailored to your child.

Gives you great insight on what’s coming and how to help nurture that.

I, personally get very stuck with how to engage sometimes (like how many block towers can I stack?) but now I find myself doing tightrope challenges and incorporating specific language based songs in play. We are catching moving toys and playing with purpose in ways that my 2 want to engage with.

Be that with my language proficient and emotionally intelligent 2 yr old or with my adventurous, strong, energetic 1 yr old.
