Lifestart is a programme for parents of children aged from birth to five years of age. Lifestart offers families a monthly child and parent development programme which is delivered to parents in their own homes by Family Visitors.
On each visit, the Family Visitor brings to the home age-appropriate information about the development of the child. The information is in the form of monthly issues of the Growing Child, which deals with the physical, intellectual, social and emotional development of the child.
It contains checklists which allow parents to see how their child is developing compared to the average or typical child. The Family Visitor explains to the parents all the things they can do to encourage their child’s development and suggests activities which will help the child to develop her/his potential fully.
The Family Visitor brings books, art materials, music, nursery rhymes and educational toys from Lifestart’s library and shows parents how to make best use of them with their child. The Family Visitor will answer parents’ questions about their child’s development.
