Baby Brain - Pregnancy to 24 Months
Major brain development occurs in 3 out of 4 main parts of the brain, in the first 24 months of a child's life.
Cheeky Child - 2 to 8 Years
From 2-8 years a child is primarily functioning from their limbic system, which is the emotional centre of the brain.

I highly recommend Cheeky Child to any parent wanting knowledge on how to support their child's developing brain. The videos are short and to the point and presented in such a way that you will feel like you're listening to an old friend. The information is easy to understand and even easier to incorporate into your busy family.

I recently went to Victoria’s 'Calm Kids, Happy Kids' talk and I cannot recommend her enough. From anyone who has or works with children; from babies through to the teenage years, she has a lot of relevant information and ideas to share. She’s very passionate about sharing her information and delivers it in an easy to understand way. She is always giving examples on how to apply her knowledge to your own day-to-day lives with children.
Kim, Masterton NZ (Primary Teacher & Mum of 2)
I loved the length of the movies in 'Cheeky Child'. I could watch one or two while I was doing the dishes or when I had a few minutes to myself. Victoria's real-life examples were awesome! It meant I could relate to what she was saying and made me think I could totally try her suggestions with my kids.

'Baby Brain' will help me as a parent, because often parenting (especially in the early years) is very much a guessing game. A baby can not tell you what is wrong, so to have a better understanding of how their brain is working and developing, just better equips me with tools I can use to better care for my baby.The biggest highlight was the neuro-tools. I found these really inspiring.
