Children who are properly cared for in early childhood grow to be healthy and happy individuals. They have a good psychological state of mind and are generally more productive than those deprived of primary care. This course will teach you the basic caregiving measures. İlbey UÇAR, who has a Master's degree in Psychology and continues his Doctoral education in Sports Psychology for the Disabled, is your publisher. He is the founder of the PsyNomad company and has served many domestic and foreign clients in Turkey. As he became more aware of the value of sharing and accessing knowledge during the pandemic, he began designing and producing courses that students in his field could reach, regardless of economic level.
We begin the course by describing the process of appropriately cleaning an infant's body and explaining how this helps their well-being. Next, we explore the gymnastic movements suitable for children aged 0 to 1. You will also discover the nutritional needs of infants and the contribution various nutrients play in the growth of a healthy child. We will then review the different tips and suggestions to train toddlers to care for their personal needs.
Children with special needs require additional attention. Dealing with such children involves a lot more effort. The final section of the course will therefore focus solely on training you to provide adequate care to meet the needs of these children. Learn to feed, dress and teach them to grow and help themselves. This course is suitable for individuals who have just become parents, professional caregivers who support families and people who want to take up the caregiving profession for special needs children.

Early Education Teacher
Encourage a child to act on their natural desire to explore the world around them and learn from it through experience, so they are prepared for life and for making good choices. That is the basic tenet that guides Early Childhood Education ( ECE) Teachers who gift them with the “roots of responsibility and the wings of independence,” as remarked by Maria Montessori.
When you choose to become a Preschool Teacher, you dedicate your professional life to helping our most precious resources grow into responsible, competent learners. Teaching one child, let alone a whole classroom of young learners is no simple task.
Child Care Worker
A happy childhood and a happy home are what every parent tries to achieve for their child. When parents with full-time jobs cannot provide their children with the necessary attention and care, Child Care Workers step in to make sure their precious charges are healthy and happy.
Special Education Teacher
As humans, learning and teaching are two activities we frequently engage in, if not constantly. However, as a Special Education Teacher, you go that extra mile to ensure that children and young people needing either additional support or advanced learning challenges grow to their full potential. The marvel of such a job - the more you teach, the more you learn.
