What our members say...

An amazing resource that doesn’t promote ‘competitive parenting!’ Safe environment to ask anything related to development and play, with some amazing resources and information that has proven invaluable and we’ve only just got started!

The support offered in BPA is second to none. I felt empowered to support my baby’s development in a stress free, fun and playful way. There is no judgement, just evidence based suggestions on how to do something new or different for your baby to encourage their development.

Absolutely love the program. I have enjoyed playing with my bub so much more since joining. I also love the facts section and access to discount codes.

I love that information is evidence based and simple. It is the only resource/service that I pay for because it has been so helpful.

The baby play academy, and Facebook community, have been an invaluable tool in my approach to parenting my children. I love how easy they are and how they make use of items you already have at home. For someone who lacks creativity and isn’t very “playful”, I found the ideas so wonderful for changing up how we would play and interact. I even would write down a weekly list of new play ideas to try in my diary!

For me the activities are great and I loved DIY as well to do lots of different things. But it was the normalising of milestones that made me much more relaxed and just to enjoy play.

Loving the new format, the interface is absolutely fantastic and very easy to navigate. I love that you can search specific play ideas based on the skill you are looking to support. The amount of information in the blog posts as well is just great! I've been constantly going back to the recommendations before purchasing toys/high chairs/shoes etc.

It's all you need, whenever you need it, in one place.
