Supporting the social-emotional wellbeing of infants and young children builds the foundation for a child’s future relationships, buffers against mental health challenges, and strengthens their capacity to learn and thrive as they grow. All of this happens in the context of their most important relationship; the relationship with their parent or caregiver. Babies are born with 30% of their brain developed, the rest happens within relationships. Babies and young children need relationships that provide a safe and reliable attachment, attuned and responsive care, emotional experiences that are integrated and regulated, and offer a warm presence that holds their experience in mind. These relationships provide the daily, consistent experiences that infants and young children need to develop these capacities within themselves.
