We believe that
your child needs &
deserves your BEST
attention in early
years,
to grow into a happy & healthy individual.
Best attention is not to be measured in hours but the quality of interaction. Most important thing is...learning what you and your child should do together. You need to add lots of love and patience to have a perfect formula.

Challenges

Subsequently we met hundreds of young parents, paediatricians, child psychologists, gynaecologists and child development experts to get the answer of this question. There were number of discussions & incidents which led us to believe that with the current lifestyle (More time at workplace) and changing social equations (Nuclear families), it is challenging for parents to get personalised & right information at the right time and to have the apt quality interaction with the kid.

If you are a working mother, time at home and therefore "Quality" time spent with your child is limited by your hours at work. The time mother spends with school-going kid, has little impact whereas for pre-schoolers it is of paramount importance.

Preschool children of working mothers have more behavioural problems than those of non-working mothers. Ref: Study

  • Mild level of behavioural problems were reported by 40% of working mothers and 83.3% of non- working mothers.
  • Whereas 16.7% of non-working mothers and 60% of working mothers reported moderate level among their children.

If you live in a nuclear family setup then the vast experiential information with your parents, is not readily available, when you need it most.

As per our study, still 72% parents find "Friends & Family" as the most important source of parenting wisdom, without considering the change in family dynamics and social equations.

  • 72% - Friends & Family
  • 17% - Internet Websites
  • 8% - Parenting Books
  • 3% - Pediatricians

Abundant generic information is available on child development, through websites & books. Every child has unique personality & development timelines. It is difficult to determine the information, appropriate for your child, without knowing the current stage of your child’s development.

We conducted a survey on how many mothers were able to remember the topics, they read about child development during pregnancy.

  • 90% of moms responded that they read one or more book on child development during pregnancy.
  • 95% of moms responded that they possibly could not use that information when their child was growing, especially after their child was 1 year old.

Windows of opportunity

Child learns about 500 + big or small skills in first three years. We have listed here windows of opportunity for all development spheres.

Early Childhood development covers the prenatal period to age 5. This is when the brain develops most rapidly. This formative period of your child has lifelong implications on everything from health to learning, behavior and overall well being. When your child is young, it’s easy to imagine your little one being that age forever. Only a few years down the line, as your child gets older, that you really start to look back and wish you had done some things differently.

  • Sensory/Vision : Birth to 6 Months

    FACT:

    An object 20 feet away is only as clear to the newborn as it would be if it were 600 feet away from an adult with normal vision.

    At birth, an infant’s brain is not wired for sight. The first six months of life is a key period for developing vision.

  • Language/Speech: Birth to 3 Yrs

    FACT:

    Child learns the meaning of about 8 new words every day, from the age 1 to 6 years.

    The quality of child's life is dependent, to a great extent, on her ability to communicate. The speech a child hears during the first three years of life will determine his or her adult vocabulary. The infant and toddler years are the most important for speech and language development.

  • Emotional Control: Birth to 3 Yrs

    FACT:

    Different emotions develop at different stages.

    First 2-3 Months: Happiness, Sadness, Anger

    3 to 18 Months: Surprise, Interest, Fear, Disgust

    18 to 30 Months: Empathy, Jealousy, Embarrassment

    Above 30 Months: Pride, Shame, Guilt

    Emotional development includes the abilities to identify feelings, manage strong emotions, and develop empathy. The critical period for emotional control occurs between birth and three years of age.

  • Math/Logic Development: 1 to 4 Yrs

    FACT:

    Newborn's brain is only about 25 percent of the size of an adult's. It grows to about 80 percent of adult size by three years of age and 90 percent by age six.

    Young children need chances for working with materials that offer an appropriate level of challenge. The critical timing for promoting brain connections related to math is from one to four years of age.

  • Motor Development: Birth to 8 Yrs

    FACT:

    Babies are born with 300 bones adults have 206. Children’s kneecaps only start to turn bony at 3 years of age, until that they are made of cartilage.

    The window lasts for the first eight years. During this time, stable, long-lasting structures can be created. Young children need a variety of gross- and fine-motor activities to support motor development.

Studies show that there are windows of opportunity, or a specific span of time, for the normal development of certain types of skills. During these key times, appropriate stimulation is needed for the brain connections to link easily and efficiently.
* The ages for these windows of opportunity are estimates and can vary according to an individual child’s development.

We developed “Neev” for you to be able to
provide your best attention to your child.

Every child is unique and develops at her own pace. It is very important for you to know at what stage your child is, to be able to provide right interaction and play.

We engaged with experts & practitioners to create a simple child developmental assessment program which can be completed by parents themselves. It gives you the exact development stage of your child and it also helps you to identify developmental delay, if any.

Once you complete your monthly assessment, our proprietary “Neev”platform, creates a fortnightly action plan (“Spark Action Plan”). Spark action plan contains strategies, games to play, things to consider & activities you should get engaged in with your child. This plan is personalized, based on your child's development assessment results. It also contains strategies and activities for upcoming skills, based on your child's age.
