As the focus of family has turned to the glow of the screen - children constantly texting their friends, parents working online around the clock - everyday life is undergoing a massive transformation. Easy availability to the Internet and social media has erased the boundaries that protect children from the unsavory aspects of adult life. Parents often feel they are losing a meaningful connection with their children. Children are feeling lonely and alienated. The digital world is here to stay, but what are families losing with technology's gain?

In our relationships with other people, we imagine that what goes on in their heads is something like what goes on in ours. When it comes to small children, this is often not true. As parents, we need to understand how our children think, so we don't misinterpret uncooperative behaviour as willful defiance. They aren't always doing this just to drive us crazy!
Childproofing your home can seem like a huge task, but when you consider some of the statistics regarding child injuries in the home, you'll realize that even the smallest prevention measures go a long way.
The experiences Best Start has provided my children have been fantastic. It's really helped them grow into young, respectful children. Families should definitely give Best Start a try.
Our family really enjoy taking part in a quality program. We are very lucky to have this service for our children with no charge. Both our children and ourselves have benefitted in building relationships , routines, songs, discussions and being able to be involved in workshops.
The staff are wonderful and very caring and have been very helpful and supportive to me during some difficult times in the past. I couldn't have coped without them and the centre.
It is an excellent resource for caregivers as well as parents. A great place to associate with other parents and caregivers.
