The Early Years
The first 5 years in a child’s life can be both exciting and challenging. Children change quickly and learn more during these years than at any other time in their lives. As a parent, you can help your child grow, learn, explore and be healthy. This made-in-Alberta reference book will give you suggestions for everyday care and activities. It will take you from the early stages of looking after your new baby, through to the thrill of first steps and words, all the way to the first days of school.
If you are the parent of a baby or young child… this book is for you.
Nothing else is as important as raising a child. We want to give you all the support we can. There’s a lot of information about caring for a family—on the Internet, in books and from other people. Everybody has advice about raising children. But too much information can be confusing, especially when you hear different things from different sources.
