Bhavya Early Risers (BER)

Caring for and educating young children is exciting and challenging at the same time. As an early education provider Bhavya Early Risers (BER) centre work in partnership with families to offer consistent, loving care for young children.

BER services and staff are one of a child’s earliest and most important teachers.

BER services and staff are one of his or her earliest playmates and friends. The way a child views his or her world is influenced by your voice, touch, eyes, and smile.

When you think of a child and how he or she is growing, you notice things like how soon he or she smiles, sits up, rolls over, or how well he or she walks, talks, holds a spoon, and feeds him or herself. Children learn naturally during this time, by doing, by watching you and other children, and by being taught how to do different things. Because you know the children in your care so well, you might notice that one of them is growing or developing differently than other children of the same age. What you are noticing are changes in different developmental areas.

 

The five primary developmental areas are:

  • Ability to move, see, and hear—physical development
  • Ability to talk, understand, and express needs—language and speech development
  • Ability to relate to others—social and emotional development
  • Ability to eat, dress, and take care of themselves—self help (or adaptive development)
  • Ability to think and learn—cognitive development

While all children grow and change at their own rate, some children can experience delays in their development. Sometimes this can be cause for concern. Early Intervention can help.

Early Intervention at BER consists of services and supports designed to help families with children who have developmental delays. Early Intervention builds upon the natural learning occurring in those first few years.

It is a process that promotes collaboration among parents, service providers, and others significantly involved with the child.

Early Intervention:

  • Answers questions about a child’s development;
  • Enhances the families’ capacity to meet the developmental needs of their child in the settings where children would be if they did not have a disability;

  • Supports communities to become more aware of the gifts and abilities of all its children;
  • Helps prevent the need for more and costly intervention in the future;
