New App Makes Parenting Fun
A new ground-breaking app is making parenting fun and interactive by giving parents of children from birth up to three years of age simple skills to support their child’s development.
The Day by Day: Learning Together app sees parents complete activities that are organised into different everyday environments such as the kitchen, bathroom, outdoors and travelling. They can even design the characters to look like themselves and their child.
The app, which is available on Android and Apple smart phones and tablets, is designed so that there are no data usage costs after it has been installed.
The Andrews Labor Government invested $300,000 in the development of the free app.
It is one of many measures the Government is using to support parents to grow their skills and confidence so that families can thrive and children can reach their full potential.
The project aligns with the $202.1 million Education State Early Childhood Reform Plan to provide more support for parenting, particularly for first-time parents who may not have easy access to facilities and services.
