Children's Week and the Rights of Infants

Children’s Week (22nd – 30th Oct) is a time when Tweddle staff and families reflect upon the precious aspect of early childhood. The period from birth to age 3 is when 80% of a child’s brain is developed through a combination of genes and experiences.The everyday interactions of song, touch, play, talking, cuddling and responding sensitively to a child’s cues lay the foundation for future learning and relationships. While at Tweddle, families participate in therapeutic play, music and literacy sessions. Parents can start to see the world through their children’s eyes. The World Association for Infant Mental Health (WAIMH) recently released a position paper on The Rights of Infants to highlight the additional and specific needs of the 0-3 age range which go beyond those that have already been specified in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC, adopted 1990).
