Frequently Asked Questions

The Baby Play Academy is an online course designed exclusively to guide parents in supporting the development of their baby from birth to walking.

There is a super library of play ideas, using items you would normally have around the house. We also provide toys & book suggestions that support development.

We love our Q&A forum where you can ask your burning questions of our team and connect with other parents & caregivers.

No.

Most of our play ideas come from using everyday items & recycling. However, if we do use a specific toy and you do not have it at home, let us know and we will think of an alternative for you.

Definitely.

The play ideas can be adapted as your baby gets older and more clever! We are also constantly adding content. Soon we hope to have over 300 play ideas.

You sure could.

However, that's only 1 hour of your week.

The Baby Play Academy not only provides you with play ideas, but motor milestones, speech milestones, when to check-in, strategies to support and troubleshoot, masterclasses and the ability to ask questions when it suits you.

Absolutely not.

We would always recommend to see your local Paediatric Physio or OT so that your baby can be assessed and managed appropriately.

The Baby Play Academy is a complementary program.

It sure is.

The Baby Play Academy has been designed to complement your baby's therapy program.

Just get in touch with us to let us know that you are working with someone and what your goals are. That way we can really pinpoint the right direction for you.

Western Kids Health is located in Perth, Western Australia.
